Wheat weight reaction, is this a fluke?
A month or so ago, I did an elimination diet of sorts and figured out that wheat was wreaking havoc on my allergies and digestion. For the past three weeks, I have eliminated wheat from my diet, I'm sure not 100%, but no pasta, bread, cereals, cookies, cakes, etc. Last night we went to Olive Garden for dinner and I ate a breadstick, just one breadstick. I had rosemary chicken breast with spinach and potatoes for dinner, with soup and salad, so no other wheat.
I weigh myself every morning and my weight has been pretty consistent for the past few years. Since eliminating wheat the past three weeks, I have been dropping .5 to 1 lb a day. Imagine my surprise this morning when I was up 3 pounds! Nothing else was different yesterday, same breakfast, lunch, snacks, exercise level, sleep, etc. Could one breadstick really cause a 3 pound weight fluctuation?
