In Topic: Walmart And Gluten Free Section

28 December 2012 - 04:46 PM

Our local WM has a small gluten free section. I have been doing this awhile so I watch all the labels. I noticed that they had a wheat based product (with similar brand name) mixed in with the gluten free. That product very easily could have been mistaken for gluten-free if a someone new to gluten-free didn't notice the small print. I ask a sales clerk why that was with the gluten-free items. In her most "uncheerful" voice her reply was "that is just where we put it".....duhhhhhh

In Topic: Struggling To Lose Weight...

The only danger with WW (like with any other diet) is that you become obsessed with food. If you actually follow the point recommendation, you will be eating way less than your body needs (thus the losing weight part), but that's all that you'll end up thinking about. I don't remember the exact number, but 97% (or more) end up regaining all that they've lost, and then some, when they stop doing Weight Watchers. I lost 15 pounds, but then gained 35, and turned into a binger for the first time in my whole life. It's taking a LONG time to get over that. So be cautious.

Sunny I am so glad you brought up the part about obsessing over foods. I gained 35 lbs while on chemo the last 18 months (who does that, gain weight on chemo, uggghh). I was in a very rigid food program and all I did was think about food/binging. Now I am just working on eating better and avoiding the junk foods. I agree that the "gluten friendly" foods are frequently high in fats and sugars. Thanks again.
