Help please for gluten free weightloss diet


(From the Great Northwest, Oregon)

I've been sick for years and not knowing why? I won't take the time to tell you all of my medical and health problems; but I've eaten gluten-free foods for just 2 days, and already I'm feeling better. Due to the time factor here at work; I'll get straight to the point. I'm overweight, and need desperately to lose weight. I need support for a weight-loss gluten free diet. I'm trying to get my health back; so I can live a healthy life. So please, if anyone can help me with a weight-loss gluten free diet; I will be more than pleased.

Thank you, so very much for this web-site. The hurtful thing is this; why does our own government allow for our diets to include so much poison, and feed it to it's very own citizens? Honestly, this breaks my heart.

Anyway I've never been a small person, so I will need to lose weight, not gain it...for heaven's sake.

Shirl Ann ~

by: Shirl ~From the Great Northwest ~ Oregon

Thanks Pat, for sharing your story. And thanks, for the support. I'll have to start counting my calories now too, but feeling a whole lot better in just the last few days.
So facing getting the weight off is next.

My best,

Losing weight on GF diet
by: Pat

I have also been overweight for at least the last 30 years. I have been gluten-free for the past 2 years. I recently suffered a bad fall that resulted in surgery and I have been recoperating at my daughter's home (she is alsoa Celiac) and she decided I was going to lose weight. When she went GF, she lost a lot of weight, but alas I didn't. Anyway, since Nov. 2010 I have lost 37 lbs just by counting every calorie I consume (all GF) and by exercising 6 out of 7 days. I ride a recumbent bike for at least 15 miles a day also. I feel so much better & I plan to lose at least 50 more lbs by Christmas. Good luck and I will keep cheering for you.

Q should stand for Queen of the day...
by: From the Great Northwest, Oregon

Dearest Q ~
I hope in this case; that letter Q stands for Queen of the day. Because you are truly getting me started off on the right foot to healing & better health; with gluten-free information.

I have jotted down the information for the gluten-free cook-book, and have began eating better to live, rather than die.

I think now,... I can work a few more years without dreading an early retirement; due to my poor health of suffering with such a painful life over the years, and with such ignorance.

I've always believed that going to the grocery store to feed me & my family was one of the safest things left to do. I didn't know that most of the foods there would hurt you over time.

Well maybe, I'm being a little too harsh? But honestly that regular store boutht food will kill you slowly; if you're not careful and you have ignorant as a friend.
When one starts to getting old, you're just about done for, healthwise...no kidding.
And all of that fancy scientific information that you mention about what's being done with our food and all; well it is really just pitiful. There has to be a better way for everyone concerned. Right?
Sometimes, I just have to wonder is there a hidden agenda to do us all in? Well I'm a Bible believer, and nothing would surprise me in the world that we live in today.

But anyhow I'll spread the word to anyone that I know, who might be suffering with stomach pain & bloating as much as I was.
God Bless you again, and thank you, one more time for all of your priceless information.
My best ~

I feel your gluten-related pain!
by: Q

Dear Friend - from the Great Northwest, Oregon,


Our household is very familiar with the pain you are experiencing. And not only do I personally believe that the poisoning of our food supply has been ignored, I also think that the science of food manufacturing has accelerated the affects and spread of food-related intolerance, allergies, and auto-immune disease.

I am not overly religious - and I know that the biblical reference of "What God has yoked together, let no man put apart..." is really discussing the bond of marriage, but wouldn't that principle apply to the genetic makeup of food as well?

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), is present in a growing and unprecedented number of food sources in America. Science has discovered how-to modify the genetic structure at the seed level to naturally fight off pest without pesticides, and produce more weather resilient, disease resistant crops to increase the farmer's yield-to-market. Economically, it may make sense, but what is the long term effect?

Are people getting sick because that genetic twist that repels fruit-flies or an inch worm, also makes the molecular structure of that food source unrecognizable to the body? Is that what is causing peoples body's to react with an autoimmune disease, which literally means the body will attack itself?

Our household has taken on a totally new mindset. We try to buy organic and non-GMO when ever we can. We also eat as little processed food as possible, cooking at home.

The major result of this activity has been effortless weight loss. I say effortless because it has been a change in mindset and lifestyle, without a primary focus on weight. And like the prior result of weight-gain without considering what out eating habits were doing, so to has the long-term effects of our new lifestyle caused reduced belly-fat, better sleep, more energy, and an overall happier disposition. We just think differently about food and are loving it!

I have a few cookbooks that I like that have helped me to get started. I use "Heather Demeritte's Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free for the Frugal and Lazy Cook" because her recipes are simple and delicious... and anyone can make them. If you go get them from her website, it's cheaper than Amazon, you get free-shipping, and an added free video. And if you really like her offering and want to recommend her, you can even become an affiliate.

Her website is: http://www.glutenfreeandfrugal.com.

I hope this helps you and your family, like it has helped mine.

Greatest regards -

Q
