What it’s like

So I’ve been attempting the gluten free thing for a couple months now. It’s not just bread and pasta that bother me though. I guess my insides are so corroded that basically everything makes me hurt. I’ve been trying to avoid all bread, pasta, malt, alcohol, sugar, excessive salt, caffeine, acids, and anything too spicy. Which basically leaves fruits, veggies, and meat…the paleo diet.

My inexplicable dependency on food and drink has made this much more difficult than it should be but I guess there are much worse things I could be dealing with. Anyway, I thought I’d share some thoughts on how I feel about this whole thing…

When I first started reading about how to go gluten free


Trying to shop for healthy food



Trying to get over my texture issues


When I’m just gonna have one bite


What Josh does when I eat something I shouldn’t

Everyone  else when they get to eat something I shouldn’t

When I am contemplating if the starbucks skinny mocha will be worth the pain


When my friends are having margaritas


When there’s birthday cake at the office


Me pretending that I like eating paleo

“We may think there is willpower involved, but more likely… change is due to want power. Wanting the new addiction more than the old one. Wanting the new me in preference to the person I am now.”-George A. Sheehan




  1. I imagine it’ll be rough at the beginning, but eventually your body will adjust and the cravings will go away. I’ve never gone gluten free, but I have done juice cleansing and I found the social element…not joining in for celebrations with cake, or drinks was tougher than not actually partaking in the food itself. Good luck and just keep at it!
