Another characteristic wheat/grain sign

Julie shared these photos of her ankle before and after wheat/grain/gluten exposure.

My ankle on a 3 month gluten binge:

Julie’s inflamed ankle

My ankle after returning to sanity for just 4 days:

Julie’s recovering ankle

It’s an odd phenomenon, but the red, inflamed, swollen ankle Julie had while eating wheat/grains/gluten is quite common, especially among women. It is typically also accompanied by hypertension and the signs of metabolic syndrome, including low HDL, high triglycerides, high blood sugar/pre-diabetes, increased measures of inflammation. You can also make out the water retention evidence in Julie’s ankle on the “before” photo, largely gone after just 4 days in the “after” photo.

Once again, wheat/grain elimination is not about cutting calories or cutting carbs; it is about eliminating a highly inflammatory collection of proteins from the human diet.
