gluten free eggless food plan HELP!

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

Yes, I was diagnosed with food allergies, as well ass trees, grass, weeds, etc. Still, I gained up to 186 and am back down to 180. Not where I was, 172 (for 3 days) before this all started. I held 175 for a few weeks.

Someone mentioned on my last blog maybe I was afraid of success. I think it's true. I never reset my goals for under 175.
I need to do that now.
Especially since my goal weight is highest: 160 or maybe as low as 140. I won't know until I get there.

If you know about gluten free diets, please tell me.
It's like entering into a new world without wheat.

At least for now. The allergist may rule differently, though my DR doubts it. Plus it may be months before I see the specialist.
HE is still the great PHYSICIAN! I know He's for me and not against me. The bible says I can eat what I want and it won't hurt me. I believe that is true. For now, I will obey what my DR says.
Soon, we will see if gluten is to blame. For now, I plan on eating fruits veggies and lean meat.

Oh well!! PTL

    Wheat free and gluten free is really easy nowadays. I just went 100% wheat free/gluten free on June 1st and have never felt better. Be VERY careful about buying any GF prepared foods- they are full of corn, rice, and potato as a substitute. ICK not good for you and not good for weight loss. Please scrutinize every label. I have and am reading the book 'Wheat Belly' and the 30-minute Wheat Belly cook book. (can be checked out from the library) It has some good information but I disagree on several points with the author. I do fine with some oatmeal a few times a week or quinoa but he says no. I do what works for me. The book confirms so much for me though. I don't snack around anymore, am not hungry between meals etc. The Dr. explains why that happens when you're wheat free but I didn't read that part until yesterday when I'd already been off wheat for a week and had already discovered that. I'm off 100% for life- just like when I quit cigarettes 30 years ago. If wheat was making you sick, believe me you will stick with this. I was having blasting diarreah and stomach pains at 3 in the morning and things like that- no fun. Plus skin issues and no weight loss. Now it's finally coming off. It's early now but check with me in a year at the end of my four personal challenges (on my spark page) and I'm guessing there will be a big difference. We can do this and feel well again too!! HUGS.

    Sorry you are having problems. google always has answers some you can use some you can't. I had a friend that had gluten allergies and after awhile she could add a little back into her diet without to much trouble. emoticon I thought wheat products were the problem for gluten?

    sounds like you will be working with a vegan diet. There was a book that just came out that used the Daniel Fast Principle. I know the author has a cook book to accompany the book. I believe Rick Warren wrote it.

    Sorry I can not help on the gluten free menus. Now that you know what is causing issues, hope you are doing better.

    I can only agree with THINFITKINDVGAN in that food is sooooooo much different now than it was in biblical times, which makes it difficult to agree that we can eat anything. I am diabetic type 2 and have had to adjust my diet as well. It takes time, but you can do it.

    MY suggestion would be try perusing the groups on SP and join one of 2 gluten-free groups. That's where you're going to get the very best dietary information. Try googling gluten-free recipes, too and you'll come up with tons of ideas!

    Wishing you all the best and hope that is the answer for you! My philosophy is dietary changes are difficult, but which is more difficult, eating in a way that you feel better or continuing to eat as you do and NOT feeling well.

    It's a learning process, but you will "get it!"

    In biblical times yes. Now I wouldn't bet on it. The net and spark have tons of gluten free info and recipes. Grocery stores are pro gluten free also.
