Y'all should read "Wheat Belly" it gives some insight into why wheat is such a triggering food for many.

Yes...have been reading the web-site and Dr. Davis blog. Really want to get the book as soon as can. Our bodies knew it all along didn't they as we groped in the dark with bread and sugar addiction.

the only thing more evil than Wheat is fructose

I was searching our library on-line system for all the new books on order. We seem to order anything and everything with the word Diet in it.

Noticed that there will be a new South Beach out in April.
A "Gluten Aware" plan, whatever that may be.
Dr. Davis makes it simplier...just eliminate all gluten sources, but thought you might be interested in this one:

I think that whole grains will be the same (like 1/2 cup brown rice with my chili) but for now I'm sticking with fruit and seeing how that goes.

It's funny how different foods trigger different people. My mom, for example, absolutely loves fruit and she can eat pounds and pounds of it (and now that the summer fruits have started coming in, she is partying :-D).


Fruit is red lilght for me as well. i absolutely LOVE it. Actually I did well on WW until they introduced free fruit, hah nothing is free for me and then to make it fruit??! insane. I probably ate 8 servings a day.
