31. I started by cutting wheat

Which isn't just bread, it is in everything. Second ingredient in Twizzlers, staple in soups, filler in some bullions, etc..

Once I got wheat under control, it was all grains. I still eat gluten-free pastas on occasion, but they are made of corn and rice starch - so basically sugars. Trying now to cut the sugar and starch elements because I know how bad those are, but doing it slowly so that I can adjust and make the cuts permanent while not feeling like I am deprived.

Cutting grains had incredible results. The list of medical issues that went away (muscle and joint aches, etc...) were unbelievable. Losing the last decade's worth of weight gain was just a side bonus. I am not celiac, but apparently in that class of people for whom wheat is an inflammatory agent. Who knew.
