    The Low Carbohydrate Diet


    The traditional food pyramid of the past shows breads, pasta, rice, cereals (all high in carbohydrates) at the base of the pyramid, the ‘staple’ of the diet.  Recently, this assumption has come under attack.  Experts are telling us that a diet high in carbohydrates is bad for us (Why is it that the things we love to eat are bad for us?).

    Gluten-free diets are making headlines and trimming waistlines. For those with Celiac disease, gluten–free living is prescribed to ensure proper nutrient absorption, but just about everyone can benefit from eliminating gluten from their diet. While going gluten free may sound difficult, the benefits such as increased energy and a smaller belt size are well worth the effort.


    No Milk? No Gluten? No Problem!

    Wheat is the most popular grain in the United States and is found in a multitude of products.  We are taught from young that milk helps our bones grow strong.  So what do people do who cannot safely consume these products?  They eat very well!

    Finding a slice of pre-packaged gluten-free bread that is 100% enjoyable seems to be the bane of many celiacs.  So you finally decide to make your own.  You read up on baking breads; you spend money to buy the ingredients; you take the time to prepare the mixture, then you put your creation in the oven.

    Are you a bit overweight?  If you wear the same two outfits all the time because nothing else in your closet fits, you may be a prime candidate for a “Low Calorie” Gluten-free regimen.


    What was your first reaction when your doctor told you that anything containing gluten had to be eliminated from your diet?  After you stopped screaming, “But I HAVE to have my pizza!” did you begin to panic?  Know this—there is almost NOTHING that you used to eat before being diagnosed that you cannot eat now; you just have to learn to make it a little differently.
