YKAREN04 - Glad to know that you are doing well going GF. Yay! For the water it's helpful if you have an office job, as I did years ago, to drink a glass of water for each hour you are at work. It doesn't work if you are a teacher. I have water in my car and drink it at red lights. Good luck to you.
I just realized I hadn't been on this site in a while. It seems like by the time I get my nutrition tracker done and attend to a few other forums I am out of time. I have one more week of baby care and then I can be back to somewhat of a normal, what ever that is.
I finally decided to make an appointment for my Knee and see if I can do some injections again. I am concerned he is going to tell me my only choice is to have my knee replaced. I hate not being able to exercise and walk. I thin a lot of my exercising is going to have to come from the pool. I hope we can open it up in the next week or so and let the water start warming up.
Have a great evening. Even if I don't get time to post I am keeping up on what others are posting.
I had a problem being GF and staying satiated after eating. My chiropractor suggested that I eat a handful of almonds and I have to say that it helps me. I lost 30 lbs after going GF because I had already taken pasta and bread out of my diet (I had to take a nap after eating them) and didn't replace them with the GF versions. Good luck to you on your GF journey. You'll find what works best for you.
The pounds are sliding off...

The calories in gluten free foods aren't always higher. If you buy pre-packaged foods then they may be (and where I live they are horribly expensive too) but it is possible to be GF without buying them. A plate of meat and vegetables doesn't have gluten in, after all. When I first started living gluten-free I found it easier when I cut out all subsitute foods, as they would only make me think of how much worse they were than "real" bread and such, and make the cravings worse. Then I re-introduced them gradually, but I am trying to cut them out again now.
My advice for someone new to it is to read the packaging on things carefully. Yes it is tedious and time consuming, but it is better than accidentally getting glutened (though this won't be so bad if you're not actually gluten intolerant/coeliac).
Have that same problem even though it gives me trouble I still crave it and some times eat it and then pay for it.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Most of the time my craving have nothing to do with hunger. With being GF I almost never feel satisfied. The calories in GF foods are higher and portions are smaller. I had a much easier time losing weight before going GF. I still 10 years later crave real bread, especially fresh and pizza.
Hi Teddy, are the cravings real bad? Do you even have them after you've eaten a good meal? Mine don't have a thing to do with 'hunger', I once drank a whole gallon of milk in one sitting. It's amazing I wasn't sick, but I HAD to drink it! It's like a drug addiction!!
Hi---I just read a fascinating article on a possible link to gluten intolerance and food cravings (yes, Sue2U, I just saw you and it was you!). I can't even begin to lose weight until I figure why I have these horrible food cravings and am willing to try cutting gluten out of my diet. My husband gave me the go ahead so now I just need some menu ideas and how to keep gluten out of the kitchen!! Spark people seems to be the place to go whether trying to lose weight or keeping up on gossip, so here I am!!! :D
