I had a bagel this morning, whole wheat and mutligrain! the apparently good stuff for you. However, I feel really sick! My belly feels and looks swollen and it hurts! I feel really sleepy… I felt more awake before breakfast… I have terrible heart burn. All from just one bagel…
On top of that it makes me gain weight in the long run, so might as well just stop eating wheat or any wheat products.
I’m going to sub it with brown rice and quinoa and see if I feel better :) and weigh less! 2 days ago
the thing i like is that i feel actually full. all my life i could not stop eating. even while i was eating i’d be thinking about what to eat next! it was strange but i always felt that way so it was impossible for me to even think about dieting. i’d work out at the gym and promise myself a snack after and i’d always want a banana or something fresh and cool and sweet. i found too that i’d have these blood-sugar crashes and then i’d eat bread and peanutbutter or cheese and then i’d feel sleepy and dopey but i liked those feelings. now that i haven’t have wheat for a few months i feel sharp. i can think and have amazing energy, no more naps during the day. i have one helping at meals and out of habit i’ll for for the second plate and realize i can’t eat anymore! 6 months ago
I am embarrassingly addicted to wheat products, especially toast. I can eat rounds and rounds of toast at a time, and never feel like I’ve had enough. Actually, that’s so true… I can never have enough. I know myself, my husband says to me: “Just have a couple pieces and be done with it.” But that’s not possible for me. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. The only way to get this under control is to get rid of it completely.
This is so easy to say right now as I had my toast this morning and thus my ‘fix’ is okay for now. But I know later that bread on the counter is going to look pretty delicious, and my brain is going to say “you look fine, just go ahead and have some. Just one piece.” Well SCREW YOU wheat-addicted brain. I will anticipate your sabotaging ways and ignore you. I know I can do this. I’ve given up many things in the past (salt, soft drinks, dairy, chocolate), but for some reason giving up wheat is a real bitch. I’ve tried and failed so many times. But hopefully this will be it.

am wheat free since yesterday, not gluten free, which am guessing will be harder to follow. I feel great so far. I used to feel hungry half an hour after having a toast, now i have linseed bread and am full for hours! My goal is to be wheat free for a month. After that, we’ll see.. 19 months ago
