I just want to share with everyone a new GF bread that I've found that is delicious, only has 90 calories and tastes like real bread. Rudi's Multigrain GF bread tastes like real whole wheat bread and has a nutty taste. I have always had to toast GF bread to be able to eat it, but I can use Rudi's in sandwiches without toasting. I originally found it at Ft. Belvoir commissary, but I have since found it at Whole Foods, and I think Safeway carries it sometimes. I can't have a lot of bread/starch since I'm diabetic, and because I'm trying to lose weight, but this bread has really changed my diet for the better. I have celiac's disease and just found out last year. My health has improved significantly, because I have lupus and that has all but vanished since I went GF, so I'm in this for life. Don't get Rudi's mixed up with Udi's...there really is no comparison!
Nice to meet ya. I too have been gluten free for over 1 year and dabbled with it for several years prior. I know now I must stay free of it, but do not have Celiac disease.
I have found that I actually gained some weight when I started b/c it was just b/4 the holidays and I wanted to try all the alternative treats and mixes and recipes. I realized a few months into it that I had to eat a very low starch, low sugar diet to get the scales to budge. So, therefore, much grain of any description, fruit, sugar and even some starchy veggies have to be severly curtailed in my diet. If I do eat rice, I err on the side of trying to limit it to whole grain brown rice and only 1/2 c. I believe Jorge Cruise really is on to something with his plan to ward off insulin resistance in his "Belly Fat Cure". All calories are not created equal b/c they do not all trigger your hormones the same way. My body has proved that repeatedly over the years.
