I did read that all wheat has been altered from its original state to be more insect resistant and for higher yields. Bottom line, in my case, I enjoy it too much. Eating bread or anything with flour in it just makes me want to eat more of it. I have too much weight to lose to mess with it right now lol.

Great post Hoser! I have also read it is best to stay away from flour completely, any kind of flour. This includes batters, sauces, etc. A lot of calories for no nutrition. Even whole wheat breads and pasta have a lot of calories and little nutrition. Wheat, corn, and other grains are GMO and best not eaten. Replace with other veggies. Potatoes are a high calorie starch that should be eaten seldom. If you aren't happy without starches, winter squash and sweet potatoes can provide more nutrition per calorie. Even someone on a low carb, high fat diet usually tries to pick the most nutritious veggies each day.

Cluck in with your '[b]EGGSpert[/b]' opinion
I have read the different studies on the egg situation. The main point seems to be the body does not digest the cholesterol in the egg yolk as it used to be assumed. Another thing "the experts" changed their mind on. Joy Bauer always suggests egg whites (scrambled) YEW! If I can't have the whole egg, its not happening. Just cooked egg white has the consistency of rubberized fat to me. The yolk gives the taste. One or two eggs in the morning keeps most people including me feeling full for a good part of the day. I go in spurts with it too.

I agree with Mummydee. Please keep it up! We all need information.

I also agree with the others .... whole food is the way to go. When I look at things with flour now I automatically think POISON! Certainly, not the way I used to. I do have the small slice of birthday cake at birthdays but I do plan ahead on FS so I still stay under my "ceiling" for day. Most people go off the day occasionally but get back to monitoring closely the next day.
