Re: pennybeme's post regarding "carbs".
I also have trouble with wheat/gluten and when I'm really careful about staying completely away from it, I will immediately lose weight. Finding other carb substitutes....like brown rice bread et.. There are some good gluten free breads out now, but some contain some dairy/eggs. Some recommend Sprouted wheat bread, which is "flourless" and supposed to be eaiser to digest. For me it still acts like regular wheat in my body.
When I did the Vegan plan diligently, staying away from most wheat & gluten. I lost quite a bit....even when eating a lot of the wheat free carbs. So at least give it a try. I think you will be surprised.
If you Google "Gluten Free Vegan" you will find a lot of good information/cookbooks.
*****I recently discovered a new wheat/gluten free spaghetti that I passed off on my husband. It was awesome! It's made by De Bolles, that is made with Jersulem Artichoke Flour.....which I understand is supposed to be better for diabetics too. Maybe lower glycemic index & I think supposed to be a higher in protein?.....might want to check it out furter yourself. It was the best tasting gluten-free pasta I've had! Took some of the leftover cold pasta the next day and made a salad for lunch. Cut up some of my garden tomatoes, cucumber, little black olive, garbanzo beans and some Italian dressing......Yummy!!
