This month went by in the blink of an eye.
I'm glad I decided to commit to a Gluten Free diet in the month of September and not the month of October. September is a transition month where we say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. October brings with it apple picking, pumpkin picking, pumpkin spice everything, Halloween candy, and...dare I say it...apple cider donuts. I think I would have struggled a little more if I made the commitment in October (forget November and December). This goes along with what I was saying in Week 2, plan ahead and be methodical about when you decide to test a diet. Only do it when it is right for you and when you feel you will have the most success.
Here is my overall review of going Gluten Free. If you have a positive support system and are prepped with GF snacks and meals, this lifestyle is not so difficult. Let me clarify...if you are prepped, have great support, are mentally "all in", AND do not live with Celiac Disease- where contamination would be an obstacle- then this lifestyle is not so difficult. I must state that this was MY experience and these are MY thoughts- everyone is different of course. The 2 biggest changes I noticed in my body (almost immediately) was less bloating and smoother skin.
The true test will be when I put Gluten back into my diet. I'm a little nervous to start eating gluten again since I've gone 4 weeks without it. Will my body recognize it? How will I feel?
