The most effective way to gain something may be to take something away.
Now, I am not telling you to go gluten-free. But I’ve told you before you why I did in 2007, and how it has worked wonders for me.
As a child and young adult, I ate copious amounts of gluten.
Entire pies of pizza, whole boxes of pasta, lots of beer … you name it, I ate it.
I stayed very lean until my late teens; after that, it all caught up with me. I became overweight, sedentary, and out of shape.
There were other factors at play, but, my diet was really bad. I don’t think I ate any vegetables in college.
Later on, when I decided to turn my health around, I learned a little bit about gluten.
But it was only after completely eliminating it from my diet for a full thirty days that I saw, felt, and understood what it was doing to my body.
So my question to you, if you’ve gotten this far, and are considering whether going gluten-free is right for you, is this:
Forget all of the science. How will you ever know how you feel without gluten if you don’t actually take it out (completely!) for one month?
