  • How do you react to gluten?

    I only ask because I ate a TINY bit last Friday night. (Like 1 bun from a slider).

    I was fine that night, but the next day I was CRANKY.

    Does anyone else have that reaction?

    gluten makes me sore and puffy, dairy makes me tense and angry.

        Exhausted, grumpy, totally inflamed, my gums swell, my gut hates me, my throat gets scratchy, and I get very mad at myself.

          Depends on the amount.
          One bite, nothing.
          Amount similar to a slider bun, I get foggy brained, grumpy, sleepy and anxious.
          Any more than that is all of the above plus unpleasant digestive issues.

            Pain! Bad pain for a day and moderate pain for two or three days after that. Not to mention gut problems, headaches, and asthma, and... yeah, no thanks. You BET I get cranky, feeling like that!
            Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

              Pretty sure my latest acne outbreak is gluten related, but not sure. No pain, swelling, or inflammation. Just obnoxious, ugly zits.

                I'm ok with it. Get a bit bloated or with gas but it's fine.

                  I get weird. If it's too much intake, achey, joint problems, lethargy, migraines, bad stomach, digestion issues, bad moods, bad sleep, cloudy thinking, poor focus, increased sensitivity to red wine.

                  If it's just a little bit of bread, eg: a cookie, or a small slice of cake, or a little bit of brioche, I'm generally "ok", knees might hurt the next day, or I have some muscle cramping issues.

                  Something else strange that I'm trying to figure out... if I intake sugar (shared a sundae on my birthday) I've been getting super aggressive and really just wanting to fight. It's completely counter to my average nature as well. Makes me think I should play rugby and eat some ice cream before a match. It's utterly confusing.

                    Cramping diarrhea. It's a good motivator to stay away from it.

                      Depends on the dose and frequency...it causes more problems if I consistently eat it in a large amounts. A few flour tortillas or a piece of bread in a week doesn't seem to cause any problems. For the most part, I try to avoid it though. I do think gluten free is 'healthiest'

                        I'm finding that an occasional hamburger or hot-dog bun, pizza, or maybe a slice of birthday cake doesn't seem to affect me. However, if I eat bread or wheat products for a few days, I start to feel "crappy" like I did before I went Primal, which mainly means digestive problems, headaches, and an overall sluggish feeling. There's only been one time in the last five months that I've eaten gluten containing food for consecutive days. I don't think I'll do it again. I am happy that small amounts don't bother me (at least perceptibly) since things crop up from time to time.

                          I've only had very small doses since going primal, but my hands swell up pretty quickly. I don't know what would happen if I ate a piece of bread.

                            Diarrhea,
                            hands get swollen,
                            I get bumps like these (wikipedia) on my hands, they form bumpy rings and it's really itchy,
                            then, those rings keep growing, and eventually the skin peels off, and it's very ugly. So I've got to use Vitamin E oil and coconut every single chance I get, and hope new skin grows quickly (one week and still waiting for it to heal)

                            My scalp also gets very itchy, I bet those bumps/rings show up there too, but my hair is too thick to find out :-P

                            (this is only if I eat gluten, I don't get a reaction if I touch gluten)

                              As far as I can tell thus far, I don't react to it at all.
