The Wheat Belly way of eating is working! I'm tickled pink!
I gave up grains on Memorial Day and sugar on the 4th of July. For 30 days in August, I was strict Paleo. I'm glad I completed a Paleo challenge but it's nice to be eating cheese again. And the occasional glass of wine!
Since my last blog post I've hiked the Grand Canyon and completed a 12 hour race. I know my body is fat adapted because I didn't need to consume carbs for energy. I'll write about it in detail in my next post.
Here I am during the 12 hour race, jumping for joy for my wheat-free life!
