I had wondered why I gained a few pounds after eating gluten free snacks if my calorie intake did not increase. I am not an expert, but my theory is that my body can’t digest some foods at this time gluten free or not. My caloric intake is the same as before. I am not starving myself to lose weight, but in the past week I lost five pounds.
It has a lot do to with increasing veggies and fruit in my eating.
For example, this morning I had an egg with some cheese and also a banana and blueberries with organic unsweetened peanut butter. So I got my protein and fruit to start my day. 🙂
As I said yesterday, the great thing about the produce aisle is that I do not need to worry about looking for a certified gluten free label.
So based on week one results, I plan to continue the Specific Carb diet for another week. I hope to lose more weight preferably a few pounds for a healthy pace. I hope to lose 50 pounds overall over the next several months.
