Gluten-free lessons

Friday, May 31, 2013

So, I went 27 days gluten-free. Was invited to this very special pizza party and had to participate... no gluten-free available, so it ended 3 days early. But, I must say, I felt absolutely no difference while going gluten-free, and then no difference at all going back to eating gluten. I lost a couple of pounds, but that was due to more intense tracking and portion-controlling than anything else.

Here's what I learned:
1. I do not have any sensitivity to gluten
2. A person can find a lot of ways to eat lots of carbs without gluten!
3. I truly believe that for me to lose weight at this stage, I must really reduce my carbs in general.

So, moving on... starting right now, I will be severly limiting my potato intake. I will be measuring and limiting my other carbs such as rice, pasta, bread, desserts.

Here we go...

    Amen with the gluten-free business. I think tubers are better than grains. At least acocording to Hulda Clark. Good luck.

    Thanks ladies! I appreciate the responses. You made it official. I am taking out all pasta, bread and rice for a few weeks... especially now that I am doing the Biggest Loser Challenge! It's time to get this 10 lbs off and keep it off! Good luck to all of you with your goals!

    You're right, it may not be the gluten. Try two weeks without grains and see what happens.

    I eat low carb but not gluten free. I have no reaction to gluten. Good for you experimenting on healthy eating. Good luck with your low carb plan. That is how I lost my weight. I felt much better and lost my cravings. emoticon
