One reader’s request: “please advise me on how to lose weight while remaining gluten free.”
The Gluten Free Guy’s response: All people (gluten free or otherwise) lose weight in exactly the same ways — they either reduce the number of calories that enter their body or increase their exercise level so that their body burns more calories than it takes in. Books on dieting frequently recommend whole grains, but there is no requirement, but it is not essential that those whole grains be wheat, barley, or rye.
Weight loss takes time and self-discipline, and things become rather difficult when one is attempting to follow two separate diets (gluten free and low calorie) at the same time. Don’t attempt to start both diets at once. Beginning a diet requires requires changing thought patterns and habits. Check out my article “The Gluten Free Weight Loss Diet” for ideas on this subject.
