Brierley asks: Are you avoiding gluten?


Low carb (now gluten free) since the doctor put me on an Atkins like diet in 1999, (weighed 199), caffeine free for more years than that, (managed to reduce heart arrhythmias from ca 20/day to one every few weeks and had more energy), dairy free at my doctor's suggestion, and recently cutting back even more on my sugars (and bringing down my blood pressure), I would like to see more recipes that encompass these ideas. Continuing to gradually lose weight over the years I weighed 158 at the doctor's yesterday. I would like to see more recipes that encompass these ideas and are also super healthy and simple and delicious. I know it's possible. I know I don'y have all the answers, because I still have health issues. Thank you for all that you do.

Sincerely--Lana Thomas

ps. I eat rather more fat and salt than the doctors seem to think you should. I'm not sure that the Standard American Diet is quite accurate for all people, especially for me.

I stopped eating gluten at New Year 2013 after holiday baking gave me a strong enough allergic reaction to be concerned. Since then, I've noticed my appetite reduced significantly, I eat less and want less when I eat. Allergies disappeared. I lost 5lbs, and my digestion is now perfect (was far from it before). I used to crave bread, I don't even miss it a bit. This is just after 3 months. I'm looking forward to more good results in the future.
