How CAN you achieve gluten free weight loss?
You may need to undertake a whole new way of thinking about what you eat. Instead of substituting products containing gluten with gf versions, why not eliminate them from your diet?
What! No pizza, bread or pasta!
If you are overweight to start with, or find yourself continuing to gain weight on this diet, then changing your eating habits to a lower carbohydrate or low GI plan can work wonders.
Eating naturally gluten free products, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains such as millet or quinoa, eggs, meat, fish and minimal dairy can help tremendously with your gluten free weight loss plan.
Of course not everyone will be prepared to do this. I was classified as obese and diagnosed with Diabetes before I realized I had to tackle the problem head on!
The first week was very difficult. But as my body became used to the new foods I was eating, my taste buds changed and I began to feel better. The weight started dropping off, my energy levels rose, my pocket book benefited and I wondered why I had never done it before.
At the time of writing this, I have been following this new eating plan for almost 18 months and I have lost 102 pounds. I still have a long way to go, but I feel better than I have in years!

I found an e-book online that helped me. It is written by Debbie Johnson (who also wrote Think Yourself Thin) and it gives recipes that are gluten free, low GI, organic and delicious!
Many of them were offered in her own restaurant The Golden Chalice.
