So I went into this whole new diet, and I could not sleep, and then I had to eat so much.
I had so much pain in my stomach, I couldn’t even lie to my parents, so I had them put me on this diet.
I literally felt like a pig.
I could have died in that position.

But Ive come so far.
And I feel really good about where I am now.
Ive gained a lot more weight.
I’ve gained a little bit of muscle.
I am able to get around better.
I can run and jump, and my fingers and toes are much more flexible.
I just feel really, really good.
I’m just a different person.””

WATCH: ‘Vermont nuts’ are the secret to losing weight, says actress who went on diet for health article The star of “The Big Bang Theory” said she was diagnosed with celiac disease two years ago, but had been avoiding the gluten for about five years.
“The first time I was diagnosed was when I was a child,” she explained.
“My mom said, ‘You can’t eat gluten because it can make you sick.’
I said, I dont know what gluten is, but I know that it can cause celiac and so she gave me a special gluten-free diet.””
And I said to her, ‘I am going to do it because I dont have celiac, but if you want to do this, you better make sure you eat gluten.’
I have been gluten- free for so long, but it still makes me sick, and it doesnt work for me.””
So I was like, ‘No way, you’re giving me a gluten-only diet, but youre giving me this gluten-based diet, so you can be gluten-sensitive, right?'” she added.
“And she was like ‘No, I cant, because I cant be gluten sensitive.’
So I was really worried that I would have a relapse and be back to celiac.
And this is my secret.” “
So now, Ive been gluten free for eight years, and after Ive done my diet, I can do anything.
And this is my secret.”
