So far I am liking what I am hearing from the audio book " Wheat Belly" by William Davis MD. It does make senses hat he is saying and to eliminate wheat for your own good. It sounds like nothing benefit eating wheat but cause all kinda illness and weight gain as well. The bread and sweet treat are my weakness but like you've said there is many option out there nowadays to eliminate wheat. So I might do it gradually out from my diet.
Thanks for your comment support. Take care.

Thank you for the SparkGoodie spa! I'm going to enjoy that.

I've added you as a friend. I'm also increasing the vegetable matter in my nutrition and am having great fun now that the farmers' markets are starting up again for the season. I'm also in my fifties (53) and feeling the need to use-it-or-lose it.

You are an interesting woman and I look forward to learning more about your journey!

You are so right about being vegan/vegetarian way of eating gives us abandoned of health benefits. When I was at plateau during my weight loss journey, I experiment eating most foods with Raw veggies and my scale finally moved and I was able to lost my final 10 lbs and succeeded reaching my goal weight. I know Paleo style of cooking /eating eliminate wheat or gluten from bread. But they say daily free but they use meat and eggs. I think egg is daily. And is a liquid meat to me. So what type of bread are you using for sandwich? I feel it's good idea to eliminate, meat and wheat. I've learned wheat causes lots of problem. I didn't know wheat also causes for cancer and promote appetite. " lose wheat, lose weight". Really thinking about it to lose it. But I love bread and don't know how I can eat sandwich.
