The next day my husband and I completely removed all gluten from our house. I got rid of a few different appliances and cleaned my entire kitchen from top to bottom. Within 2 weeks of not eating gluten I felt about 80% better. AHHMAAZINGGGG I started reading Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis. I read Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo. Then I started reading everything I could get my hands on and watching every food documentary I could find. So far my favorite food documentaries have been: Food Inc., Forks over Knives, Supersize Me, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, Fast Food Nation, and Fed Up!
Fast forward to June 2014. I was sitting at about 85% better. I was off all of my prescriptions except for hormone replacement therapy. I was still suffering from sinus infections, joint pain, and I was unable to lose weight. A friend of mine told me about a doctor that she had seen in Lubbock, TX. Dr. Ben Edwards is a functional medicine doctor. After visiting his practice in Lubbock, my life has changed forever… Head on over to his website and check it out. www.veritasmedical.com
I now follow the BALi diet. You can find the info at : http://drfittinfo.com/index.php/about/articles/103-bali-eating-plan
This is the diet I follow 99% of the time! In the first 42 days I did not eat any fruit, grains, or honey. I lost 22 pounds in that short time and lost 75% of my joint pain.
