You On A Diet?

Recommended Posts

Anyone reading the "You on a Diet" book I started doing this 3 days ago and it is getting hard to find things that I can eat on this diet. Just curious if anyone else is doing it. The book is great and makes a lot of since but doesn't mention what you can eat if you can't eat whole wheat.


gluten-free since 2004!

It is hard to diet, and probably even harder to find a book or a diet that you can follow to the letter, since you are gluten free.

I'm noticing there are alot of dieting programmes on the tele, and a few of them advocate what looks pretty much a gluten free diet, emphasising fresh veges, meat, fish etc and fruit with not many grains at all. So our diet must be healthy.

The best diet I have come across is this gluten free diet without all the added extra things like gluten-free treats, muesli bars and cakes etc. I just stick with fresh meat, fruit, dairy and vegetables and maybe a slice of bread a day or some rice or corn crackers and possibly a little something special now and then just to make things not seem too restrictive.

I pay particular care to how I cook my food and obviously deep frying is out, but I ensure I use a little olive oil. One thing about this diet for me is that there is not as much fat or as much salt in it.

I count the calories, which is so yesterday, but it works for me, and you just have to remember that what you put in has to be expended in energy, or else it goes on as extra padding.

Good luck with your diet KayJay and I hope it works. So far I have lost a couple of kilos since Christmas.

body 4 Life is a great diet/work out plan and it is easy to substitute gluten free items. I start it again next week!
