I am thinking I need to remove wheat altogether for at least a while. My wheat consumption has gone up since I started my new regimen, and some extraneous symptoms that I have are either not changing at all or are actually worse. Swelling in the fingers, some skin irritation, retention of fluid, some jazzy joints. So we’ll bid adieu to wheat for awhile and see how that affects things. It has actually made me gain some weight back this past week. Grrrrrrr….
No worries. This is familiar territory for me. Some years ago, I did a diet for my health that eliminated all grains. That was crazy, and it is very difficult to live that way; but with the “gluten free” craze this past year, there are a lot more options than when I did this years ago, so that is a blessing.
So the bad news is I gained weight back, even though I’ve cut back on intake. The good news is I’m pretty sure what the problem is. 🙂
I will survive!
