No meat no wheat?

Friday, March 09, 2012

This week i'm trying something new. I've made some strong progress in terms of the binge eating disorder and have been doing well with my scheduled eating times. However, I'm having a lot of difficulty overcoming my sugar craving. I seem to NEED something sweet every day and once I have it I just crave it more. In addition my stomach still is not totally right among other things.

i have been reading this book called "Wheat Belly" and it seemed to describe a lot of the symptoms I feel. These are not feeling that seem to lead back to any root cause mind you. After last year I had everything tested and discovered an allergy to OAts and assumed that would be the answer, but many of the problems still persist despite this discovery.

Well, today I had to eliminate meat too (during Lent) it was quite a challange but so far I feel pretty good.

So after reading this book I decided to try to limit or eliminate as much wheat as I could from my diet and see if this has any effect. I mean I workout pretty good, and I don't exceed my calories anymore. And again there is no fluctuation in my weight up or down. What could it hurt? If it doesn't work then I'll just change something else.

    Eliminating wheat will only have an effect if you eliminate all of it. In fact, many people do best eliminating all grain or at least all gluten grain (barley and rye have gluten, too).
    I found that all my cravings stopped when I stopped all the grains and sugar and sugar substitutes.
    There is still plenty left to eat: lots of veggies of all kinds (except potatoes), nuts of all kinds, eggs, full-fat milk, yogurt, buttermilk, butter. Seeds like flaxseed, hempseed, sunflower seed. All coconut products like coconutoil, coconut flour, coconut milk...
    Have fun experimenting. emoticon
    If you eat low-carb you don't have to count calories but eat until you feel comfortably full.
