This site is my contribution to grain-free living as I see it. No longer is the ubiquitous “GF “to indicate Gluten Free. This site is for the brave, the few, the truly GrF.
For my application GrF means 95% grain free. I exclude all grains except for minuscule percentages of rice. That means: no wheat, no corn, no amartanth, no quinoa, no millet, no barley, no rye, etc.. and I also exclude potatoes(for the truly brave).
My own reason for goign GrF:
I was found to have Gluten intolerance and after eliminating all gluten I felt much better. Then I decided..hmmm lets go for total health and I said I’d exclude all grains for awhile and see how that felt. The difference was amazing. I feel brighter, certainly lighter(70 pounds and counting) sharper and more “with it” My attention span is far longer then it ever has been and my energy levels are skyrocketing (and I have a 16 month old!). After having the baby I was unable to loose weight despite Hurculean efforts(running and walking 4-8miles a day), breastfeeding and eating 1400 calories a day. Not a pound! The week I went GF I lost 4 pounds of bloat and haven’t looked back since.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Grain Free living!
I am Gluten free for life but now go grain free on a rotation basis. During down time I allow corn and rice, although I always look for the GrF Alternative. I go GrF for three months at a time.
