AquaCure Diary: Second Week, a Positive Shift

This is the end of the second week on my AquaCure experiment, where I drink glasses of water each day with positive words written on them.

In my last post, I talked about the glasses of water giving me a positive focus while repeating affirmations like:

I fill my body with love and gratitude for life and joy.

I thank my body for serving me well over the years, for protecting me, and keeping me healthy.  

I ask the water to clear out any impurities in my body, mind, and soul. 

I have a body that is strong, with normal cells that grow healthier everyday.

Thank you universe for guiding me to take good care of myself.

This week, I want to talk about a shift I’m seeing in my body and energy. A friend told me about how she has started on a non-gluten diet — which at its core means no wheat.  She explained that she has had skin rashes and allergies, so she went to a holistic doctor who suggested this course of action.

As she spoke, my mind wandered to a time about 3 years ago, when I thought about going on this type of food plan.  I suspected that I might have a problem with gluten, and even explored the idea a little by subscribing to the Gluten Free Club, a website that sent me emails with tips and recipes.  But I never tried it.  I ignored that guidance.

That is until now, because when I learned about my friend, I decided to get off my butt and give up wheat products.  I felt like intuition had knocked twice, and I know that if you don’t listen it knocks harder each time, so I paid attention.  For the past week, I’ve had no toast, french bread, sandwiches, flour tortillas, croutons, chips, spaghetti or pizza, and I’m doing just fine.

Now that I see this list of foods — it hit me that these wheat products are the usual staples of obese people who appear on the Biggest Loser television program.  Reality Check!  Maybe there is something to limiting gluten products, not only for rashes and allergies, but also obesity?

How do I feel after no gluten for a week?  My ravishing hunger for fast foods and all things fattening has diminished and I’m feeling more in control, the weight started dropping at a fast pace (at about a pound a day), and I’m not riding the energy roller coaster, instead I’m taking a leisurely drive.

While I haven’t fully committed to this regime, I must say that not eating bread feels right, and I’m starting to find equally satisfying alternatives like a corn tortilla instead of flour, and a grocery cashier told me that quinoa spaghetti noodles are just as good, if not better, than wheat.

So, I’m going to continue to follow my food guidance to see where it leads me.  It feels like a life shift is happening?  Thank you water-glass Gods!

    I just recently cut wheat out of my diet as well, and have seen amazing results. I too had rashes on my arms, and had been experiencing digestive problems. I always felt hungry. Wheat used to be a huge part of my diet: wheat cereals, sandwiches a couple of times a day, cookies, pasta. These were all of my favorite foods, and after I learned I had a resistance to wheat I was concerned with how hard it was going to be to give it up; however, once I started, the improvements I saw in my body and energy levels made it so easy. I don’t experience those shaky hunger symptoms anymore, my appetite has decreased, and my self-control over food cravings has increased.
    I have been almost completely wheat free (almost, because I have had the occasional wheat product) for almost a month now.

    Congratulations on all your achievements so far!

      positvityprjct,
      Thanks so much for your input. It looks like we’ve both discovered the same thing about a non-gluten diet. It’s amazing. I wish I knew a long time ago it would decrease my craving for fatty foods, and make me feel better. I guess now was the right time is right for me to discover it.
