Can you recommend a diet strategy for weight loss for me? I have celiac disease, have had my gallbladder out, and am borderline diabetic.

Celiac: I would recommend what I call the neo paleo diet. It contains most of the original ideas of the paleo diet which consists of no gluten or dairy. It also says you should eat no processed foods and to eat as organic and locally grown as possible. It allows for nuts and seeds.

It is neither: Healthy or unhealthy. It can save a very small number of calories from you intake when substituted for sugar, but by itself will not be sufficient for weight loss. You have to burn up 3500 calories than you don't ingest to lose one pound. A teaspoon full of sugar has only 16 calories, so deleting such a small amount won't lead to weight loss the baking blend of truvia does contain some added sugar. ...Read more

Can you please tell me the healthiest foods for rapid detox and weight loss?

Can you please tell me the healthiest foods for rapid detox and weight loss?

If you go on any deprivation diet, you will probably lose a little weight, just because you are restricting calories. It is very likely you will regain this weight. ...Read more
