Thanks for your reply, Shanna. After reading through a lot of the leaky gut literature, on this site and others, I plunged in and bought glutamine as well as a probiotic with colostrum.
Yes, it would be lovely to hear from some others on how things are going. After just one day I've learned the following:
1. Always prepare twice what you think you'll eat of everything you are allowed to eat - hunger leads straight into not only temptation but a terrible feeling that nothing's working and never will.
2. Go outside as soon into nature or start vacuuming the living room as you get that feeling that you are being magnetically drawn into the kitchen towards a lot of foods you can't eat.
3. Pecanbread is the best site
for figuring out what you might be able to eat next!
