February 8th - present - Gluten free (mostly Paleo) - NO side effects!!!
What I learned: I have built up to a 48 hour tolerance period before I start feeling the effects of gluten that last four days until it is completely out of my system. The leg pain luckily only lasted two days but that was the definitive proof for me. Do I regret taking the test? Not really because it led to second guessing myself and then proving that i should actually trust my gut (sorry, bad pun) and eat the way i have been for the past 9 months.
No wheat for me!
