After many months/years of upset digestion and generally feeling under the weather, I eliminated as much wheat from my diet as I could - this was around about four to five weeks ago. Foods such as bread, any kind of pastries, biscuits, cake and wheat based pasta have been pretty much completely cut out. I've started to eat a lot of rice in replacement for pasta but the bread and sweet goods have gone more or less un-noticed and I do feel a lot better in myself.
My intake of fresh vegetables, fish and some meat has increased and I think it's fair to say that the improvement in my digestive system is nothing short of remarkable.
However...I seem to be losing quite a bit of weight. For any normal person I'm sure this wouldn't be that much of an issue but I suffer quite badly from health anxiety and I'm just a little alarmed at how quickly I seem to be slimming down. I'm guessing that it's because a lot of the extra calories have been left out rather than me being seriously ill.
I'm interested to hear whether or not others have noticed weight loss when they have given up wheat/gluten and perhaps what dietary steps have been taken to make sure not too much weight is lost.
Thanks in advance,
