Gluten intolerance symptoms:

Have you noticed that whenever you eat grain based foods like bread or pasta that your stomach cramps up or you feel uneasy and suffer from diarrhea? Well then you may be gluten intolerant.

Gluten intolerance is becoming more and more commonplace in the modern world. Grain producing companies use genetically modified seeds to ensure that they reach their required output quota, and as a result have increased the amount of gluten in foods today.

Think about it, how much of the world’s most commonly eaten foods have gluten in them?

Burgers, pasta, bread, chocolates, sweets, all of these “foods” contain high levels of gluten lying in wait of an unsuspecting stomach.

What are the symptoms of gluten intolerance? 

  • Stomach issues: These can manifest themselves in ways such as feeling bloated, stomach cramps, constipation or diarrhea. Basically, if you suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) you could very likely simply suffer from gluten intolerance. 
  • Headaches or migraines after consuming foods that contain gluten.
  • If you suffer from irritability and crazy, random mood swings. 
  • Muscle and connective tissue pain: Also known as fibromyalgia, this syndrome is related to muscle and connecting tissue pains. Do you have muscle aches? Start looking at gluten intolerance as a probable cause.
  • Neurological issues: Dizziness and balance problems could be attributed to being gluten intolerant. Numbness and tingling sensations in your body can also be related.
  • Feeling tired: Perhaps the easiest symptom to spot on this list. If you feel tired after every meal that contains gluten and just can’t seem to understand why you feel drowsy all the time, start to point fingers at what you are eating.gluten-free

Stop eating gluten for one month or 30 days and see what happens. I am pretty sure you will see some change and will probably lose weight at the same time. Gluten is largely linked to foods which are made with grains such as pasta and breads, both are foods which are not good for the body.
