Food Elements / Gelatin, wonderful stuff!
« on: June 19, 2013, 10:12:33 AM »
Was reading Maria's journal this morning: She has a write - up about gelatin. I use gelatin alot, in breads, muffins, cakes etc.
When I was little ( a zillion years ago ) I remember my mum and grandmother also using gelatin in baked goods.
It maybe the lazy low carber/ paleo/ WB persons "short" answer to bone broth. NOT say'n I'm lazy, just say'n in a pinch this might come in handy till we get those bones brew'n.
What say you?
Off topic: Holy cows is it ever raining this morning!

Food Elements / fermented foods?

Hi everybody.
I have been reading about how great fermented foods are. Am wondering if anyone is eating these, making these, buying these. Also I have never been a " pickle or sourkraut eater ". Wondering what anyone has to say on the subject???

General Discussion / BEER!

There's a guy over in the WBB that had some info on beer, I will try and get him to join in here.
I drink a low carb beer called : Sleeman's Clear. It is the only low carb beer that I have tasted that tastes like beer.It is not something I drink often, but omg when summer hits, it's beer I crave. So, Sleeman's is a beer made here, and the " clear ' is the low carb one. It's very good. Sleeman's has a website and has info on their products. Let me know what you drink, am interested. Cheers!

General Discussion / PET food
« on: May 15, 2013, 09:32:37 AM »
Hi all,
Just thought it would be great to start a wheat free pet food topic. I see a few posts in Wheat Belly Blog. I think my cats would do well with wheat/grain/sugar free food also. So, if you have recipes or comments, bring em on! thx.

So nice to find this forum, and all of you. Some I know from Wheat belly Blog.
I also have had difficulty with my belly. I have been wheat, grain and sugar free for many months, maybe about 7 or 8. I think it may be because I produce a lot of cortisol. I was having a lot of anxiety ( Grrrrrrr Wheat ) which was causing over production of cortisol, AND very poor sleep. I have since found out that poor sleep causes viceral fat!!!!! So, again, Wheat and the vicious cycle.
I have tried many things, like I seem to hear a lot of you saying; coffee, no coffee. Dairy, no dairy. Fruit, no fruit. Exercise, no exercise... It goes on. But, I think the best thing for me is I KNOW I'm on the right path. The big answer was the wheat, then the next the sugar and ALL grains. I believe the belly will eventually go. I believe it's a balancing act with my body.
Also I have just had to go through an awful experience with my teeth. I was on an antibiotic for 2 weeks, then I was given another script for the same antibiotic for another week.... well my body rebelled and I broke out in an all-over body rash and I got very sick. So am thinking the poor health in my teeth has not helped my heart health and has probably caused me to hang onto the fat. Also now the almost 3 weeks of antibiotics and what that has done to my gut flora. And now the reaction to the antibiotics has also caused ... who knows what!
YUP, I'm on big doses of probiotics, but it may take months to fix my gut flora. Also it will take my mouth awhile to heal and get the toxins out of my jaw. So am giving myself a few months more to finally lose the last few pounds ( maybe 6 ) off my belly.
It has been a journey.
I started years ago with Atkins. Lost the wieght then went on a vacation to a small south pacific country for 6 weeks. It was very hard to find enough  protein to maintain my diet. I fell off the wagon! It took me years to get back on high protein. THEN I read Wheat Belly,It was an  "ah ha" moment. Also read about ketosis ( thank the gods cuz I love my whipping cream in my coffee in the am!)
Also Gary Taubes is amazing and has made a huge contribution to my understanding of my life long fat "ness".
Dr. Davis' Blog has brought me here on a very meandering route.
I'm glad to meet you all.
I look forward to all your posts.
Thank you for having this forum.
