What a seriously depressing topic, right? I was inspired after reading a post by Alex at Fitnancials.com called The Harsh Reality of Owning a Fitness Blog. It was all about people’s harsh words toward her when they didn’t think her fitness was fit enough. The fact that she lost weight while taking care of herself and bettering her health never crossed their minds apparently. While there are so, so, so many benefits to eating well and living a healthy lifestyle, the truth is, there are some serious downfalls as well. I have read posts that have similar titles to “10 Serious Downfalls About a Healthy Lifestyle” but their reasons are always a little shifty. 1. It’s so hard getting new clothes once you lose weight and get your 6 pack abs! –Uhh, no, no, that all sounds great and you’re just tricking people into reading this. Not cool, ma’am, not cool. So I’m going to break it down and get real, 10 Serious Downfalls About a Healthy Lifestyle.
Finding out that you have a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease can be a real bummer to say the least. It can feel like the end of the world. Strolling the grocery isle or glancing at a restaurant menu is enough to make you burst into tears and scream, “My life is over!” Maybe you haven’t determined an intolerance or Celiac and are beginning an elimination diet to see if your symptoms improve. Either way, knowing what to do as far as a gluten free diet for beginners doesn’t have to be as stressful as you may think.
Thankfully the supermarkets and restaurants are hopping on board with more and more amazing gluten free products. I will say, if you are suffering with some serious tummy troubles or other gluten induced symptoms, supplementing your diet with highly processed gluten free foods is not the best way to go. However, I fully get that it is stressful and you have to start somewhere. The idea of having to give up some of your favorite foods is enough to make a person want to bail before even starting. I touched on this a little with my post Gluten Free Shopping List but today I am going to help you get really start sifting through all the products on the market and start figuring out the cleanest way to start your new diet.
