Try using coconut oil for cooking and also for spreads. It revs up the metabolism and assists the thyroid.

And.....have you had your thyroid tested? A low thyroid can keep you heavy no matter what you do.

When I was heavy years ago....2 things kept me that way.....dairy and sugar. If I wanted to lose weight, I just cut those out and nothing else. Worked like a charm every time. You may have foods that are preventing you from losing weight.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

It might be because you're getting a normal appetite back. have you been watching your portion size? I actually had a reverse reaction...I gained weight when I ate gluten and I lost weight once I became gluten-free. Everytime I would eat somethign with gluten, I would get full real fast, then an hour later I would be hungry and eating again. 1/4 serving of pasta would fill me up back in the day.....and I would eat so often I ended up eating about 2-3 servings once the day was over. Now I'm eating only one serving of gluten-free pasta and that's doing it for me. Again, it's probably just because you have your appetite back and are starting to eat a little more.
