CdA Woman Grains Diet, 40 Pounds

Alicia Troye was exhausted, and her joints hurt. “Everything hurt, all the time,” she said. She was 37. Her doctor ruled out arthritis, thyroid problems and other potential causes of her fatigue and pain. Meanwhile, in an ongoing struggle to lose weight, the Coeur d’Alene woman zeroed in on gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. “I wasn’t even thinking about the pain in my hands. I was thinking, ‘Well, what if I went gluten-free? Maybe that would help me lose weight.’ ” It didn’t. But, slowly, she began to notice other changes. “I could sleep again through the night, and it wasn’t bad sleep,” Troye said. “I didn’t feel as tired – I started exercising. And the pain wasn’t there anymore”/Adrian Rogers, SR. More here.

Question: Have you ever had a diet that worked?
