Dumping the Diet


Well, it’s been a full year gluten-free.  We have had many moments where it truly seemed that it was working, helping, or whatever.  A moment came, back in the fall, when we felt like “checking” to see if reintroducing would make a difference or not.  Within one week, bad behaviors were ramped up significantly and he was completely out of control.  His stomach seemed to be suffering as well.  So we went straight back to cutting all gluten (which supposedly takes about 6 weeks to fully remove for your body).

Fast forward to now…there have been several “slip-ups” where he’s gotten some regular food item (and I am pretty sure that he was being given regular snacks at his summer camp), so it seemed like as good of time as any to dump the diet and see what happens.  It has been a full week, there have been no dramatic changes in mood, actions, vocabulary, or anything else for that matter.  So maybe we are ok.  It would certainly help our budget to not have to buy specialty foods!
