Gluten free diet does make a change

I've been put on a GFD for one week so far. I had some skin allergic symptoms, breathing issues, tiredness, and stomach pain, between other stuff.

After just three days of it, I noticed I was breathing deeper and better. One of my hobbies is to sing. I realized I could sing better because I had a deeper flow on my lungs. Also I noticed I'm not tired anymore. My skin is better. I just feel a lot better overall and it's been just one week.

I've gone through a nose surgery this year, in order to fix breathing issues, but it didn't help fully. Just like Djokovic had surgery before the GFD.

So, this might not work for everyone. I believe it will work for everyone, maybe to a lesser level in "normal" people, but in people with some health issues like my case it's definitely helping.

I just make this thread because during these years I've read a lot of people making fun of the gluten free diet, and they are wrong.

Re: Gluten free diet does make a change

If you have coeliac disease, certainly

Unfortunate condition, but it's good that there are useful alternatives for those who can't deal with gluten. For me, wheat, barley and rye are excellent foods. I could easily subsist with other grains as my main starches, though, especially brown rice. And of course potatoes, one of the best starches.

This thread should be in non-tennis.

No, you are ignorant.

You don't have to be celiac to benefit from a gluten free diet. There's also a condition called non-celiac gluten intolerance, which is present in 6-10% of the worlds population. Its sympthoms are similar to the celiac disease, but the origin of the problem is different.

And I'm also encouraging "normal" people to try it and test if they can work for them, to make them feel more energetic and so on.

This is related to tennis, because I'm explaining what Djokovic probably felt once he started the GFD.

Re: Gluten free diet does make a change

Yes, gluten intolerance is an issue for some people who don't have coeliac disease. I didn't say otherwise, and I wouldn't encourage them to eat something that is bad for them.

The majority of people do not suffer from either of these maladies, fortunately, and gluten is NOT bad for people who don't have this sensitivity. There is no good reason for someone like me to stop consuming healthy wholegrains like wheat, barley and rye. If other people want to stop eating foods that are good for them, fine — their bodies, their choices.

I agree with you, if you are ok, you should keep eating gluten and everything.

But if you are "normal" and still face some allergies from time to time, feel tiredness or have stomach issues and your doctor says you are ok, then you're a good case to try the GFD for at least a few months to see if you get better.

Gluten related health issues are undiagnozed and I think it's not bad to explain this issue to people.

I don't think it's just this. While medical science hans't identified how we are Gluten intollerant I have to say, some years ago I went gluten free unintentionally by taking up the Dukan diet for some quick weight loss and I found my general health improved a lot, I breathed better, mucus cleared up in nose and lungs, slept better, had more energy, clearer headed and better digestion etc. I couldn't believe it. I'm back on gluten now because I'm lazy at making lunches, so I grab sandwiches and slowly a lot of the symptoms returned which is why I'm going gluten free again in the new year.

I know doctors currently say "coeliac disease" only, but there is a spectrum. Also doctors are still giving out of date advice on sugar and fat intake despite the fact it has been exposed quite openly that the original assertion was political bullshit and when it took hold the politics of the scientific community meant it was ignored if you said otherwise despite the decades of data. Now you can talk Placebo effect of the Gluten thing all you want, but a lot of those issues I never really knew where issues until they cleared up (because when they are always there you accept it as normal) and as I said I wasn't intentionally going Gluten free but my everyday health and fitness was a million times better.

Re: Gluten free diet does make a change

I slowly start to speculate that these kind of gluten intolerancies (seemingly spread very wide among current younger >30 population in the developed world) just had to do a lot with the denaturalized food (white flour, sugar etc.) many children consume after breast-feeding for the first few years and puberty.
It's kinda like a bad reaction from their organisms...

If you are gluten intolerant, just like Novak, of course it does make a difference.
