I began cutting WAY back on grains about 10 months ago (about 90% eliminated from my diet). I will still eat a cookie or piece of pie on a special occasion, or indulge in a grilleld ham and cheese every couple of months. I do not miss pasta, rarely miss bread, cereal was hard to give up but has been replaced with other fun stuff. I have always been fairly slender, but my layer of "squish" (most women use pregnancy as an excuse for) has all but melted away, and I feel great. No more indigestion or intestinal discomfort!
