Has anyone had experience with a gluten-free version of this diet? Good or bad?

After reading a thread here that mentioned the South Beach Diet, I decided it's the plan for me.

I'm too attached to my beloved beans to go full paleo/primal, so South Beach Phase 1 is perfect. Also, I can introduce fruit, rice etc. one at a time in Phase 2, so I can learn what exactly disagrees with me.

I'm doing this for two reasons:

1) To help treat SIBO and continuing diarrhea, gurgles, etc.
2) To lose around 35 pounds.

I start today and so far, I am loving it. I was eating too much of the gluten-free goodies so hopefully this will help on all levels.

Just curious...other than gluten, what are some foods that affect you negatively? Are these foods allowed on the South Beach Diet?

Like I wrote, just curious. Keep us posted and good luck. :)

Thanks!

You know, I'm not sure what else is affecting me. Gluten is pretty much all I've nailed down as a problem so far, but from what I read, all grains, starches and sugars can encourage SIBO, so I want to re-introduce grains and starches one at a time to see how they affect me. Although I've been gluten-free for more than six months, I still have ongoing gut issues.

I was also lactose intolerant for about six months last year, but that seems better now.

Cheese is allowed from Phase 1 onward, other dairy is allowed in Phase 2 (I think... still learning).

Phase 2 of this diet allows some wheat (as well as other carbs like rice and corn) — obviously I'll steer far, far clear of the wheat!

Whoa... I just discovered that the South Beach diet guy is jumping on the gluten-free thang:

http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/1623360455

And here on celiac.com: http://www.celiac.co...Free/Page1.html

Seems like he's trying to cash in? Anyway, I don't have any problem adapting the original South Beach recipes to gluten-free, so I think I'll save my money when this book comes out.

Day three and so far, so good! I haven't been hungry at all. :)
