I gotta learn

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

I have been cutting out wheat but last night I went to Chompies (a deli) and had pastries. I'm paying for it this morning in stomach upset. I cannot eat the stuff. Not to mention the high calories associated with wheat products. My husband isn't so picky so I'm getting rid of the wheat in my pantry (noodles, pasta, baking flour, pancake mix) feeding him; I just can't throw the products away and I can't give away things that are open.

I've made zucchini "noodles" and spaghetti squash and enjoyed both as replacements for pasta. Celery sticks and corn toritillas have replaced sliced bread, although I've tried gluten free bread and its okay too. I'm thinking "I must be thirsty, drink some water" when I crave carbs.


One week No Wheat

Well, almost. I had a bagel in there one day and a half a hamburger bun. It already seems to be making a difference. I'm keeping this up.

    I'm starting out going wheat free first, because its easy to identify. I am looking at labels to see if they include wheat, barley or rye but I'm trying to get away from processed foods altogether. Dining out is hardest and purging my kitchen of wheat products is difficult too. I hate to throw out stuff.

    Congrats. It made a difference with my wife. I hope it works out for you.

Have you gone gluten-free, or just cutting back on wheat?

I've been reading a blog of someone who follows a No Sugar No Grain diet with a 5% leeway, that is, 5% of their eating can be these items. I recognize that I am much more satiated when I eat more protein and less carbs and that I snack more when I eat sweets. We just stocked up on groceries that have a lot of these items so we've got to go through those. I am making an effort to get to NSNG for the rest of the year and see how I feel.

    2 days of no wheat, 3 days of low wheat. I added a streak tracker. I feel better already, not hungry all the time emoticon

    The NSNG way of eating works for me...I try to only eat big carbs once a day. It cuts down on my cravings too.

Getting "back"

Thursday, September 04, 2014

I had a great two weeks of walking the beach in Florida, only one day where my back gave me trouble. But since I've been home, my lower back has been giving me problems. It has given me an authentic appreciation for chronic pain sufferers. I'm back to doing Yoga stretches which helps a lot since my hamstrings tightened up with all the walking. My inclination is to cut back on excersing and soothe myself with sweets and carbs. The corresponding weight gain contributes to the back problems I believe. One day at a time, get back to moving and this too shall pass.
