Going grain 'free' has been awesome for me.

I started on a low carb grain free diet on March 19, 2013. Previously, I had lost over 100 pounds but struggled with keeping my calories low enough. I regained about 50 pounds and was constantly hungry and had strong food cravings. Felt like a total failure. Recognizing that I needed help, I went to a doctor that specializes in weight loss. She put me on a low carb gluten free diet because she believes that everyone should be gluten free.

I did feel bad the first week but it was worth it. I have been amazed at how easy this has been for me. Where I once struggled to stay on 1200 to 1500 calories, that is no problem on this diet. I lost weight faster on this diet than I ever have. Sometimes I forget to eat!

During the holidays I allowed myself some sugar and grain as a treat. Guess what.... the cravings reappeared. I am convinced now that I should stay low carb and grain free. This seems to be the key for me. Time will tell.

Lots of non-runners die from heart attacks (shocker). It happens eventually to a fair portion of the non-running public.
Loving yourself is an act of will. It doesn't just happen, you have to choose it.

Diamond, not long ago you were saying that your transition period took took 2-3 months to adjust to grain free. Recently you've been saying it took you only 2-3 weeks. Now you say the transition took a week. Pretty soon you'll say it took only the weekend. Who knows where the truth lies but the story is becoming more and more fantastical. Thank goodness I have no belly fat but there is no special hip and thigh diet unfortunately.
