You can reduce the net carbs by first cooking rice, and then cooling it over night in the refrigerator.  This changes the starch to resistant starch, which is not digestible by humans, and instead becomes food for gut bacteria.

Welcome to WFF, mouseluxi

re: I'm currently reading the Wheat Belly book.

Be aware that the program has advanced quite a bit since that 2011 book. It would be a lot of clicks, but you could trace developments on the Wheat Belly Blog (which goes back to 2011) or the Undoctored Blog (which started in 2017).

The current program is found in Undoctored (2017). Perhaps the biggest strategy that came in, entirely overlooked in the original book, is cultivation of gut flora, which I recently summarized in a public post on the Undoctored Inner Circle forum: Gut Flora Resource Overview

re: First question - can I eat rice? :)

TL;DR; not really

But that question, which was very frequent in the early days, reveals another weakness in the original book: the lack of emphasis on the suggested net carb budget, 50g/day, 15g per meal of 6-hour period.

Rice is pretty high in net carbs, with some forms (like sushi rice) being little better than sugar metabolically. That would normally just mean sticking to small portion sizes, but...

Rice is also at extreme risk for surprisingly high concentrations of Arsenic. This varies from farm to farm, and Organic doesn't protect you on it, because it can be due to regional As, or pesticides used decades ago (so the farm still qualifies as Organic). The US has no standards for this yet. Canada might. Absent national standards, look for grower claims.

Even if the net carbs and As issues are in hand, all rice contains WGA (wheat germ agglutinin), an adverse lectin that is a direct gut wall antagonist (which circles around to the gut health issue again).

This is part of why you'll see a shift after 2011 from gluten-bearing-grain-free to just plain grain-free.

I'm the guy on this site that everyone complains about when
I answer these kinds of questions, but here goes:  With a
question like that, you have pretty much not understood
anything about the issue.  I wish you the best.

Anyone else?
Wheat Free Recipes / Chicken Avocado Burgers
« Last post by Barbara from New Jersey on February 28, 2018, 04:24:34 AM »
This recipe won an award from the California Avocado Association contest I think.  It is tasty, easy to make, freezes well and may be eaten hot, room temp or cold.  I wore wet latex gloves to mix and form patties.  I also wiped the patties with avocado oil (or other high temperature oil) to prevent sticking. 

What I really like is that you can slice up additional avocado when serving.  I used wraps, low carb buns or just on a plate.  Tomato, bacon, mayo or sauteed onions are some of the toppings.  Works nicely on top of salad or veggies.


1 lb ground chicken
1 large ripe avocado cut into chunks
1 minced garlic clove
1/3 cup almond meal
1 minced jalapeno or problano pepper or dash of hot sauce (optional but recommended)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Wet hands or wear disposable gloves.  In large bowl, add all ingredients and mix gently. 
Shape into desired pattie size.
Wipe with high temperature oil to prevent sticking.
Grill inside or outside or bake about 20 minutes in 400* oven, turning once.

I'm from Canada and I'm currently reading the Wheat Belly book. Just thought I would stop by and say Hi.

First question - can I eat rice? :)

Wheat Free Recipes / Nut and Seed Bread

This is amazing, simply amazing, if you like German type Pumpernickel bread and miss it.  I sure do sometimes, and have made this several times now.  I can't eat much of it, it's very filling.  I slice it very thin and freeze a few slices for later consumption.

You're welcome, Rita - you will not be sorry if you make this one, I follow his directions to a T, using my Kitchenaid mixer, of course any mixer will do.  Let me know if you do try it, I love getting feedback :)

Hi Rita, I didn't get the book on kindle, but she was having a sale on amazon, giving it away for $2.99 last week .. haven't checked if it's still available for that price.  I have the hard copy and share it will my daughter.  I have been printing out the really good recipes and have a folder in the kitchen, I find that easiest.  Or. I just open them up on my phone when I'm cooking, but my fear is that some of the really good bloggers will take them down, if they add them to a cook book, it has happened.

This cookie is amazing in that it holds together and her process of flattening them during baking is ingenious, they really look like "real" cookies!

Hi Girls, it's been busy in my life, but happy busy! :)

It's always good to open the page of the site you want to share, and then copy the url and paste here.  That way the link is complete.  Also, adding the www. is also important - it makes the link clickable.

And yes Barbara - we sure did share a lot of good recipes here, like I said, it's been a lifesaver for me at times, if I can't find the recipes online for some reason, then I can always find it here.  I really only posted tried and true recipes that I love.

I have a few new ones that I've been making routinely lately, one is a nut and seed bread, so easy and fast to make, I might just have to add it, just in case you hadn't seen it.

Most of the time now, I just make the Fathead rolls - it uses the mozzarella, bit of cream cheese, almond or coconut flour and baking powder.  I've made pizza dough, rolls, bagels (yummy with the topping mix from Trader Joe's) and even a sweet roll, with cinnamon mix in the middle.  That was lovely.

Other than that, just making baby food for the 1 year old and my Mom - LOL!  she doesn't like to put her teeth in lately, so I mostly make her sweet potatoes with lots of butter, or carrots, sometimes she will eat an egg, or very soft chicken.

Oh well, gotta run, hope you guys are doing well too!!
