Paleo again

I've been on the Paleo diet for while now and it has been working well for me. I've lost weight and feel good.

I have now twice conducted experiments on eating wheat products after not eating them for a while. As an example, this morning someone brought me an apple fritter from Starbucks, unasked for but foolishly not refused. I ate it and not too long after that I began to feel bad. By bad I mean a pain in the gut to start with, followed by joint pain in my hands, elbows and knees. I would call it coincidence but for the fact that the same thing happened the last time I ate bread. When I was on the vegan diet I took Aleve every day for arthritis but just realized I have not had to take it since being off of grains. Not scientific test but enough to convince me that MY body at least does NOT like grains!
