Gluten-Free VS Gluten
My objectives to my posts are to give my visitors the information they desire to solve their health problems, since there has been such an interest in gluten I am going to continue my sharing with you in another post today.
As you know if you read my last post from my own experience a gluten-free lifestyle has improved my life in so many positive ways, in my opinion gluten is nothing but a slow acting poison causing our bodies many physical and cognitive health issues. There is no doubt in my mind which one is right for me, my old lifestyle caused me not be able to function well enough to earn a living. I lost everything in my past, my family and my home, my career and my lust for life.
Since seriously sticking to my new lifestyle the past few years, my health has improved and still is improving today. My present lifestyle has relieved me of my cognitive dysfunction, which has been the main reason I had to give up my past life. My mind is so much clearer, even my aches and pains from my arthritis has become much less severe the past few years. Two years ago I would not be able to function well enough to even share my experience with you, the only real negative side of my present lifestyle is the higher cost of my living expenses. For me there is no question which lifestyle is the best choice to live, sure you have to add supplements to your diet but that is a small cost to be able to enjoy your life and function well again.
What Are The Benefits Of A Gluten-Free Diet (Lifestyle)
My present lifestyle is not a fad diet to lose weight, you might even gain some weight living this lifestyle if you depend on the gluten-free processed foods available today. My lifestyle consists mainly of the old fashion way of life, vegetables and fruits with low fat grass-fed meats. You might be curious about why I consume grass-fed meat, the reason for this is I have experienced meat fed grains flares up my past symptoms. I suppose you can believe its true what they say, you are what you eat. Animals fed grains are just as harmful to you as if you was eating the grain yourself, but the benefits are amazing if you adopt this lifestyle with a passion. Its just amazing to feel young again and have a clear mind, more energy and now I am able to go shopping without having to make a list every time. In the past, my mind was so cluttered and unclear I could not even remember what I went to the store for by the time I would arrive. The store is only 5 minutes from my home, even going to buy one or two items my mind would go blank by the time I got to the store. Adopting this lifestyle has given me a younger brighter brain, the best part about this lifestyle is you will know in a month or less if its going to work for you. Next I will share some tips on living this lifestyle, at first its a bit overwhelming but in a short time you will adjust to your new lifestyle and be happy you did.
Tips On Living Gluten-Free
Living this lifestyle on a fixed income was a challenge for me at first, shopping was my worse enemy for the longest time. I had to read all the ingredients on everything in the stores to be sure it was safe for me to eat, I limit myself to only a few processed gluten-free products each shopping trip. For one, they are more expensive and you receive much less in a package. I purchase more produce today which is a much better bargain then the processed foods available, it saves me much time now avoiding the aisles in my favorite stores which are off-limits to my new lifestyle. Actually most of the processed foods safe for me to consume I purchase online at a much better price, purchasing them bulk online is the best way to go. I still believe very much processed foods are not healthy for our bodes, I truly feel they put stress on our digestive systems and our immune systems when consumed too often in too large of amounts.
Snacks are not as difficult as people would think living this lifestyle, I am able to consume most snack products which are corn or rice based. I still have to check to be sure there is not gluten in the product, some rice and corn products do use it as a filler. Many of your chocolate candy on the market today I am able to consume as a snack, its wise to get in the habit of checking the ingredients just to be sure. Even if you stick to certain brands, sometimes companies change the ingredients in their products to save money. Today most of the brand name companies are starting to produce gluten-free, popcorn is my favorite snack and chocolate bars. I have been considering adding recipes in the future if there is enough interest in them, but you can find a ton of recipes online today and even buy cook books.
Please be careful there are many non-food products you are not able to use, ladies especially be wise many cosmetic products have gluten in them. Many of our hygiene products, such as shampoo’s, deodorants and soaps are not safe for us to use. Licking envelopes are something we never think about being unsafe, but many glues on envelopes are not safe.
I have been amazed at how I had the power all these years to improve my own health issues by simply adjusting my lifestyle, today I live a much improved quality of life. I am able to participate in activities I could not for many years, I realize its very hard for some of you to truly understand how much of a difference this lifestyle has improved my life, what do you have to lose to give it a honest effort for one lousy month. That is all the time it takes to know if it is gong to improve your life and your brain power. I have not even made a dent in all I have experienced from living my past lifestyle and my present lifestyle, maybe I will share more on this in future posts if I am persuaded by your interest.
