I just finished a journal on giving up (sugar) sweets and soda. It worked very well so I thought I'd try a journal to give up wheat. I have been on and off wheat for the last five years but have yet to give it up completely.
So with that in mind, as of today, I will give it my all to not eat wheat.
I gave up wheat almost a decade ago after accidentally discovering it was the cause of the inflammation and arthritis-like pain in my feet. It was the best thing I ever did for myself.
Made it through day one without any wheat.
Good to hear eKatherine.
One day down, well done. Keep it up, Tee. I hope you will find the improved digestion that you may not even realise you need.
TEE wishing you the best on this! I have slowly been starting to cut wheat with the obvious, like breads. But I am interested in hearing from those who have stopped and how they feel physically?!! Very excited, hoping the replies will be further motivation!!
Then go and check Dr William Davis' blog at wheatbellyblog.com!!

Agreed. I've been grain-free for about a year and a half and no knee pain.
One day at a time is good I gave it up cold turkey, all of it. Just woke up and said, "it's worked before, I can do this". Don't beat yourself up for backsliding, but before you give in, tell yourself to wait an hour. Over and over again, if needed. Look into what triggers the craving and good luck!

Caution! My replies may contain traces of nuts!. My posts are just my opinion based on my experience with the primal way of life, there is no assurance it will work with others in the same way.

I don't work for the guy but read Wheat Belly by Dr Davis, you will understand why you should stop eating wheat RIGHT NOW and keep that stuff as far away from your plate as you can for as long as you can. And the word comes from someone who grew up in France where wheat is a staple food (I used to have wheat at every meal / snack / anytime).
