A couple of weeks ago I discovered that I suffer from gluten sensitivity. Gluten has caused me a lot of gastrointestinal complications among other issues. After adjusting my diet to cut out wheat, barley, rye and all foods containing gluten, I noticed a great improvement in my physical and mental health. I constantly feel better, fuller, happier and more energetic. My skin, my hair, my nails and body feel and look better just a week after cutting out gluten.
I have also easily adjusted to drinking more water, eating more fresh vegetables and fruits. I used to hate drinking water and eating fresh greens because my body always craved and preferred the addictive wheat carbohydrates. I can now drink two bottles of resource® Natural Spring Water after my morning yoga practice. It does wonders to get that naturally occurring electrolyte from water that I now enjoy drinking. The water also really helps wash down the dry brown rice bread. (I'll discuss the downside to wheat alternatives at a later time.)
It isn't easy to cut out wheat, as it was one of my favorite food items. I still struggle with cravings, but I know better. Life is too short to waste on mediocrity. I want to wake up every day feeling healthier and better. That's why I am trying to eat better and exercise to improve my physical health. I want to be able to do more push ups and pull ups every day. Instead of getting older and weaker, I will age everyday knowing that I am always better today than I was yesterday. That's the dream after all.
