thanks GFNOMAD, yes I brought the Wheat belly book which is why I decided to try a wheat free diet. My family are thinking "oh no here she goes again, another crazy diet!", but so far so good. went to childs birthday party today and was able to abstain from choclate torte, and banoffe pie, amazing for me! Came home and had my homemade vege soup and fruit salad. Just got keep at it. thanks again for the reply.
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.

Welcome! Please read up on recommended websites. Eating gluten free does mean eliminating wheat, rye, barley and oats not labelled gluten free. People often put on weight on a gf diet because they substitute the gf products. Generally they are higher in fats and calories. If you are losing carb cravings, then maybe your problem is wheat. I recommend getting the book 'The Wheat Belly', preferrably from your local library. good luck!
Hi my name is Hinukoa, I have not been dx with celiac disease, but have chosen to go wheat free because I have been over weight for the last 20yrs and have not been able to lose the weight no matter what I try. I range between 96- 98kgs and have been active doing triathlons and regular training, but still cannot lose the weight. I would like to blame my inactive thyroid but think I eat too much, for emotions, and carb cravings. I looked into cutting out gluten and then wheat completely and have been doing this for the past week and have noticed a difference, no strong carb cravings, and enjoying not feeling sluggish and tired in the afternoons. I am slowly trying to eliminate all wheat products, but did buy some gluten free pizza bases and made some yummy vege pizzas. Weighed myself yesterday and was 95.5kg, so will see how things are by next week.
