Its a week today that I went wheat and dairy free. firstly it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be. I've been having gluten free bread and dairy free spread for my toast. I've also had some "free from" chocolate which was actually quite nice and yesterday I had some dairy free grated cheese, it really smells and I probably wouldn't have it on crackers but on top of chilli it was a good substitute.
so the benefits I have found so far.....
I'm eating more fruit and veg (where I would normally grab something like crisps or sausage roll etc.)
I feel less bloated
I feel like I have more energy
I haven't really had any pain (this could be coincidence and due to the time in my cycle)
My legs don't feel like they weigh a ton!
and I've lost 2.5lbs in weight. This is HUGE for me as I haven't been able to lose any weight at all for ages!
I'm going to keep this going for at least the next month so I can see the effect it has during that horrendous time of the month. but so far I'm really really pleased with the results.
