Carol, I've been doing real well. Thanks for asking. How about you? You've been having such a rough time.
Gretchen, I cut out all gluten (not just wheat), diet cokes, and sugar on the same day and within a week had much more energy, less joint pain, less body aches (skin and muscles) and a general sense of well being. I've since added back diet cokes (bad Pat!) and some sugar. I buy a lot of food at our local health food store (wish we had a Whole Foods!) and eat fruits and veggies and lots of legumes. If I lapse on my gluten, the next day I feel like crap.
llI don't think diet coke and sugar affect the waylllllll I feel. I just think they are bad for our bodies.
Happy eating, friends!
