Hi I thought I would report back on my experience of going gluten free. Thank you to all who encouraged me. It has definitely made a big difference. I have lost a stone easily having been pretty stuck as regards weight management for a long time. I have twice slipped up and paid a price with a return of severe symptoms. I felt so great I made my usual mistake of overdoing it but I do seem to get over these setbacks much quicker now.
Eating out is the biggest problem but not insurmountable. My husband is so impressed with the improvement he has joined me, though he is less strict. He has much better energy levels. I notice that I feel much more satisfied after eating quite often feeling surprisingly full. I feel much more confident about losing weight and becoming more active in the longer term though pacing is still important. I am also getting more done and I think that is not just about energy but about focus and clarity. So a big thank you! Ann
