Too much gluten

I can tell I've had too much gluten lately because I've been sluggish, I've had trouble sleeping and I've been lazy.  I didn't do my strength workout this morning because I couldn't get my sorry ass out of bed.  I was able to hustle as usual at basketball tonight which is good because I can't do much else.  Heh.  Well, I was able to blow a couple of easy layups, but I think I had some good rebounds towards the end.  Even though I'm older than most people there, I don't get as tired as quickly.  I do get picked last every time, but it's ok since I still get to play.

I can only imagine how much better shape I'd be in if I didn't give in to temptation.  Fortunately, I've almost polished off all the leftover Super Bowl food so I should be able to get back on track starting next week.

My own experiences have also proven to me that Wheat Belly is correct and that a Paleo diet is the way to go. Fortunately, more and more people are seeing the light so there are a lot more resources and it's a lot easier to eat gluten-free.  Restaurants are now starting to indicate gluten-free dishes.

I only caught part of this Diane Rehm show on gluten free diets, but plan to go back and listen to it in full. Thought you might find it interesting:
