Low-carb Gf Diet
0

11 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of going on a low-carb diet, where can I find low-carb gluten-free foods? I'm not sure if this type of diet is possible for someone with celiac because most of the low-carb foods are not gluten free. Any ideas? Or, are there any good online stores for this? Thanks

I found this, I eat the smaps cereal, it's pretty good, really expensive, but oh well. I think there may be some other gluten-free stuff on the site...

The best lowcarb diet is one that is not intended to be low carb. <_< What do I mean? Don't go low carb, just eat whole foods. :)

If you eat a diet rich in fruits and especially green veggies, (green LEAFY vegies all the better) you WILL loose weight.

Drink a glass of 1% milk when you feel hungry outside of mealtime or get a craving (not skim, 1% is better, it helps in reducing the bad fat). drink a glass of water, sometimes it's not that we are hungry we are just dehydrated and our bodies are telling us to eat something to counteract it. Drink a glass of white or green tea, it has natural appetite supressants in it.

Try to eat at least 4 small meals a day instead of 3 big ones.

Eat 1 organic yogurt (Stoneyfield is good) every day, it has the beneficial bacteria, acodophilus, in it, which aids in your immune system and digestion. Eat lots of protien, eggs are great.

Of course these food sugestions are supposing that you are not allergic.

Try to stay away from starches. Grain, potatoes, bannanas, corn, peas, and carrots. Your body uses them as sugars.

Eat things like almonds or pecans for snacks. I even eat chocolate covered soy nuts from Trader Joes.

So what do I mean by whole foods? As you can see... stay away from the processed junk. Eat foods that are in as natural a state as possible. Eat an apple, not apple cookies.

I promise you WILL LOSE WEIGHT and you WILL feel better. :D

Good Luck

Wendy

That Heavenly Low Carb site has Barbara's Bakery items under the "Wheat Free/ Gluten Free" section, BUT they contain oat flour and barley flour. They may be wheat free, but not gluten free! BE CAREFUL!!! Yikes!! Misleading information there. I hate that!! :blink:

I'm confused when you say that most low carb foods are not gluten free... Meats, nuts, oils, non-starchy vegetables, leafy greens... all these are staples of a low-carb diet and naturally gluten free.

Could you be more specific about the conflict you're seeing?

The best way to go low carb is to not eat processed foods. Meat, veggies, fruit, nuts, cheese, yogurt are what I mostly eat. Buckwheat, and quinoa are great because they are high protien and fiber and low in carbs. I prefer to eat foods the way they are supposed to be eaten, whole and unprocessed. Low carb diets are based upon eating unprocessed foods. The low-carb processed stuff is way too expensive anyway and not always gluten-free.

I'm not going to pan low carb diets because without them I would not have figured out that I"m gluten intolerant. But the best part of a low carb diet is the focus on whole foods (as written already). For me, eating regular dairy products, not low fat or skim, was a big help - first of all have less sugar and more fat in them so they keep you fuller, plus are more like they were intended to be eaten in nature.

I have seen some lower carb treats - Pamela's cookies now has some low carb ones (they use Splenda though... blech!) and also I noticed EnerG has a "lighter" loaf of tapioca bread now, too. But if you're really into going low carb, you really don't need to be eating that stuff anyway. Meats, veggies, nuts, dairy, eggs - all really good stuff. Yeah, so you need something sweet - then get some stevia or xylitol. Making brownies with almond flour and xylitol/stevia is super easy and very tasty.

Oh, I did see also that Stonyfield has a yogurt smoothy with half the calories, I think it said 15g carbs (still too high for a low carb diet but it's progress) and it doesn't contain any splenda or aspartame - which is totally unusual! But great! As a former low carber and still somewhat hypoglycemic, things like that make my day. I'm going to go check them out next time I'm at the store...

If it wasn't for the Atkins diet I never would have found out what was wrong with me. By eating more protien and natural fats from both plant and animal sources you will not get hungry as often. Protiens and fats take longer to digest and don't produce insulin spikes like a high carb diet will cause. I lost 80lbs and don't eat nearly as much as I used to. Low carb diets work great if you are gluten intolerant. If you do try the Atkins diet you must read the book and follow it exactly. It won't work if you don't.

I'm on the SCD diet and feel SO much better after getting all the processed carbs out of my diet. PLUS I am losing weight! Something I have been unable to do while eating carb-full foods. :) I love having a bowl of strawberries, grapes, apples, etc. for lunch. I also find I am not nearly as hungry. For a "snack" at work I keep small bottles of 100% juice to drink. Cuts the cravings and is good for me! Good luck doing whatever you decide is best for you!!

    • food allergies
      Welcome!   If you suspect you might have an issue with gluten, you should really get tested for celiac disease.  At least rule it out before you go gluten free.  Why?  There are so many other health issues that can be related to celiac disease.  Here's some information about getting an easy blood test: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ If you suspect allergies (reference your edema), I would see an allergist too.   I wish you well! 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      so i was just recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and I am having trouble wrapping my head around it.... While i know that maintaining a gluten free diet is going to help me feel better - i can't get over the fact that i cannot eat my favorite foods anymore.. no more pizza, no more pasta, no more wheat thins.......... yes i realize there are gluten free versions of all of these but it's obviously just not the same.  I can't just go out and grab a couple drinks at the bar with my friends anymore..... i really do not know how to handle this and it's already wearing me down.  I feel like after living for 28 years my entire life has flipped upside down and everything is going to change... i'm sorry for sounding like such a lost puppy but i just wanted to vent a little bit and see how you all deal with this... i told my friends about it and they act like it is so not a big deal at all but to me it feels like my world has come crashing down 
    • puffiness in face
      Would hot yoga help the puffiness in face due to other food sensitivities? or Asuanas? How to determine if you have a histamine intolerance or other food sensitivities? 
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Good evening, I tested positive about 15 years ago. I have a 3 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I just had them both tested for Celiac's. Ped ran a celiac panel. My son the nurse said was all in normal range however my daughters IGA total was 23, range (24-121) so she test positive. The doctor wants to run more blood work to make sure it's not a false positive. My gut says she has it. She does not like any bread or cookies so she really only gets gluten from pasta and goldfish so to even test positive on an almost gluten-free diet make me concerned. Is there anything I should ask the doctor to test for or better tests for kids? I just don't want to miss anything.  Before when I would bring it up at visits the doctors always said that since they did not have any failure to thrive ( always top of growth charts) that they weren't showing any symptoms. I never had any issues with losing weight.  My only complains or constipation joint pain and gas which she has both. Thanks for any advice.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
