I'm still working on figuring out the eating thing. These are the books that have influenced me the most on understanding and recognizing what real food is and what a healthy diet, as God intended really looks like.
The wheat thing is definitely an issue for my body. It's not a bad food for everyone, but I just can't handle it properly. I already mentioned how much weight I lost with the raw foods detox. I didn't mention that within a week of healthy eating afterwards, I gained 5 lbs. That is a week of HEALTHY eating and working out every morning. Talk about discouraging! But one of my healthy staples was whole wheat. Crackers, pastas, breads...all wholesome and sugar-free, but still wheat. So, much as I love it, gluten and are officially off. Two days off and I've lost 3 lbs. I know, I know. I need to avoid the scale. But it's stationed right beside the gym door on my way out. It's a compulsion.
