Gluten Free

Monday, February 18, 2013

Has anyone out there tried eating gluten free? I had a lunch meeting with a friend I haven't seen in awhile and she had lost 45 pounds just by cutting gluten out of her diet. I thought that cutting out gluten would only help you if you have a genuine gluten allergy, which is actually quite rare. Any thoughts? I could sure use some help as "low cal, high activity" is not working very well for me.

Here's one more picture of Signe. This time with my hubby and me. The older gentleman in the last blog sitting on the swing with Sig is my father. Looks pretty good for a great-grandpa, don't you think? LOL

    I'm still researching a gluten free nutrition plan. I do know there can be adverse cause and effect if one doesn't NEED to do it. What caught me eye in your blog was "low cal, high activity." That could be a problem for anyone. I did serious damage to my immune system because of it. The secret to fueling high activity can't possibly be low calories but more GOOD calories, power foods, clean fuel to burn.

That is exactly what I did. As I started to lose weight, my body became stronger, and my daily required calories lowered...still keeping good fuel in mind. I'd go to a sports nutritionist and ask about this. Stay strong, focused, and be positive, Deborah!

    I agree with the others-it's like the high protein diet-it works because you're cutting out all extra calories by dropping bread, etc. Everything in moderation and our bodies do need the nutrients from all foods.

    Jackson is right - cutting out or down bread and such will help anyone lose weight. However, from what I have read, gluten free foods are lower in fiber and some other healthy "parts," so they can be less healthy for people who do not have celiac.

    The reason she lost all the wt is because she eliminated most breads and pastas. You too will loose if you cut out bread and pasta. You can eat brown rice pasta and gluten free breads but chances are that you will loose wt.
