Guys - I'm gettin' real discouraged over here. I'm on day 9 of my bread-free, sugar-free, processed foods-free "diet"/lifestyle shift and so far my progress has been surprising! Yesterday the scale so lovingly informed me that I have dropped 4 pounds since I started this Game of Cravings. Now I'm reading that the Gluten-free diet isn't exactly for weightless, but more if you have a health issue like Celiac's disease. And Paleo diet COMPLETELY cuts all grains (well sorry, bread was enough, but no brown rice or quinoa?)
So here am I, sitting at my desk eating a bowl of brown rice, almonds and Trader Joe's veggie chili (that's not too overprocessed, now is it?) and not even 5 whole minutes pass before my stomach is bitching about getting more food. What does a girl gotta do to revamp this system? Are my results true or are they due to lack of absorption? Any response is greatly appreciated.
