Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

It depends: Whichever one has the least amount of carbs is probably best; if you choose bread then choose whole grain bread. Consider whole grain crackers that also have seeds as those will be lower in carbs (such as mary's gone crackers). In following a low carb diet you don't need to completely avoid grains but keep the amount of grains relatively low; whole gluten-free grains are relatively healthy. ...Read more

For dinner ate grilled halibut, steamed broccoli, and wild rice. 1 hour later have this intense hungry feeling why? Not overweight.

For dinner ate grilled halibut, steamed broccoli, and wild rice. 1 hour later have this intense hungry feeling why? Not overweight.

It's the rice: Starch is a type of sugar that provokes an immediate Insulin response which typically overshoots the required amount necessary to lower the blood sugar. This leads to an abrupt drop in blood sugar, although not necessarily a low value, which makes one feel weak and/or hungry. Try leaving out the rice or replacing it with a legume such as beans, a different type of starch. ...Read more

And, all humans make choices of foods that are not in and of themselves 'healthy'. But, this is life. We get to eat something we love once in awhile whether it is healthy or not. ...Read more

Exercising at least 1.5 hrs/day. Eating whole grains, fruits, vegetables w/few processed foods. Moderate portions. Why am i showing minimal weight loss.

Too many calories: Minimal weight loss despite exercise and eating a healthy diet is most likely due to consuming beyond the calorie limit required for your body to burn fat. You have to eat about 3500 calories less than what you burn over 7 days to lose just 1 pound! Track your calories by weighing and measuring your food and using the label information. Calories from beverages add up quickly too. ...Read more
