I just today made the decision to do this after talking to my chiropractor who has been trying to fix my sciatica problems with no results. Honestly, I was terrified at first to even think about cutting wheat out of my diet. And I never read this section before. But after taking a cruise around the gluten free boards, I think I'm going to be ok! You guys are awesome, it never fails to amaze me at how much info is on the PPK and how helpful everyone is. So, I'm looking to fix the following issues by going gluten free:

1. Sciatica due to some type of inflammation (we think)
2. Extra weight and belly fat
3. Fatigue and exhaustion

I have thought for years that I had chronic fatigue syndrome, now I'm thinking maybe gluten might be my issue. Now that I've gotten over the initial shock I am actually looking forward to doing this and seeing what kind of changes happen in my body and mind. Wish me luck everyone!

good luck! i hope you have luck with all three of your goals. i don't know what sort of sciatica you're experiencing, but i just made mine a million times better by learning to do the pigeon pose. this only works if you have the sort of sciata that is due to a tight butt, not related to spine or disk issues. as for #2, good luck! i could lose some extra belly fat myself, but haven't experienced any changes based on the switch to xgfx. gluten-free sneider's pretzels might have something to do with that.

Thanks kittee! Im taking my first yoga class in Sunday, hopefully it will help. The doc isnt sure what is causing me the sciatica yet. But he doesnt think its spinal. So pigeon pose might just be the thing I need.
