no flour no sugar

Yes. It's amazingly fast weight loss. I lost 30 lbs. in three months with no exercise.

It's also nearly impossible to stay on. Which is why I'm back here!

i met a nutritionist who prepared brownies for people who follow this type of diet - she used chickpeas, egg, carob powder, and agave nectar [an extremely low lycemic natural sweetner] and they were delicious. alot of people follow this diet for allergy maintenance. i met a family who ate only meat, lettuce, and rice as their main foods.

Yes. I lost 70 pounds eating this way. When I had another baby, though, I gained 30 of it back, which is why I'm starting again. It's difficult the first 2 weeks, but after that it gets easier. I've lost 8 pounds this time around already.

Does anyone have any pointers? Is it harder than atkins? It seems more mild since it allows for fruit and rice potatos ect.

People don't realize that fat isn't the enemy when it comes to dieting. Its sugar, it does crazy things to your metabolism and makes you crave even more of it. Our body needs fat to function in fact taking in a good amount of Omega3's and 6's contribute to fat loss. The body is constantly burning fat everyday but the moment you eat carbs its either 1. slowed down or 2. stopped. But we need carbs to function, carbs give us energy to get on with our day and carbs deliver nutrients to various parts of the body. So I suggest eating good carbs which are low-glycemic which don't have that big of an effect on our blood sugar. Flour is n't a good carb at all. Has no nutritional value whatsoever. Eat the good stuff only that does the body good.

I'm doing this for health reasons. I developed an auto-immune disorder 2 years ago. Regardless of the medication, I had a relapse. It was at that point that I had an Ah HA moment and a nutritionist suggested that I remove white flour and sugar from my diet. Substituting it with as many organic (colorful) veggies as possible. You get used to it! For me it is not a diet, but a lifestyle. That's not to say I never give into temptation, however, it is very seldom and I hope that my continued good health is proof enough for me to stay motivated to keep on the right path.

5:22 is sooo right..

I couldn't have said it better myself. It is all about the TYPE of carbohydrate and not fat at all.

5:22, when you say "Flour is n't a good carb at all. Has no nutritional value whatsoever" do you mean all flour, including whole wheat flour? I have been eating bread made from sprouted grains as opposed to whole wheat flour b/c it has more fibre, and i was wondering if there was more to it than just the fibre.
