No Flour, No Sugar Diet






Summary


Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet presents a simple, straight-forward way to lose weight and keep it off for a lifetime. All you need do is eliminate flour and sugar from your diet.


Description


This diet book contains common-sense techniques on how to eat better and achieve a healthier lifestyle. It gets you to focus on foods that are nutritional and satisfying. Thus, you can both lose weight and become healthier in the process.

You can eat brown rice, lean meats, low-fat dairy products, fruits and vegetables. But, you have to stop eating foods like bagels, pasta, bread, cereal, white rice, cookies, sweets, and cakes.

Many excellent recipes are included in the book with have no flour and sugar, yet taste delicious.

The approach is to keep things simple by just eliminating flour and sugar, the two primary food ingredients that are causing the obesity problem in America. Our culture has become addicted to sweets. This book helps you break the addiction and get on track for eating healthier while losing that extra weight.


History


Dr. Gott is a medical columnist published in over 350 newspaper daily. He is a practicing physician with a general practice in Connecticut. He's also the director of medicine at Hotchkiss School (a prep-school).


Criticism


Giving up bread and sweets may simply be too hard for some people. Sugar is in a great majority of products sold today. While the diet sounds simple, implementing it and sticking to it is quiet a challenge.

What a beautiful day we are having late this Sept. I hope this is one of many before the cold winter sets in. I think about Christmas shopping for the kids and grandkids and it makes me tired. I guess I BETTER take one holiday at a time 1st. HALLOWEEN,2nd THANKSGIVING,and then 3rd CHRISTMAS. I am still trying to lose this weight by ridding one bad food at a time out of my diet and trying not to add a different one without knowing it. Not much to say today but pray everyone has a happy day, ANNIE

Lost 7 pounds as of today. I had a bit of a stall over the weekend, as I did indulge in too many football game snacks. But back on track this week. I'm going to boycot all halloween candy this year, as that strategy has worked for me in the past. It seems like having just a little opens the flood gate for me and I just want more of it. The truth is, I have had more than my share in the past and I can see the evidence of that on my stomach and back side. lol

Down 4 pounds this week, eating portion control,drinking 8 glasses H2O, not eating after 8 pm, 3 meals 2 snacks a day. Also, trying to eat 350 to 400 calories a meal, and 150 calories a snack or less. And I write down what I eat so I no where I am and why I am there, life time commitment because I really have an eating issue. So ,I enjoy what I eat and I don't feel deprived because I can have anything I want as long I watch my portions. Its a balancing act everyday. Good job. DEBBIE M. keep it up. ANNIE

Morning ladies. I've read the posts since my last entry and I have to say congrats Debbie! Congrats to all of us really for trying to do this and have healthier happier lives. I have been unable to stick to it for awhile. I think I'm still adjusting to my new schedule. No one to take care of...I think I turned to cooking and food.

I'm teaching myself how to knit...I like it a lot...trying to stay busy. And this last week I've lost 3 pounds, down to 156.6 in preparation for a trip out of town. It seems to have got the ball rolling, so good enough. I would love to lose 5 more pounds immediately to be able to wear clothes I already own, but overall goal is 10 more pounds.

Great day everyone.

Still keeping a diet journal of what I eat. It sure keeps you aware of why you don't lose weight. But I really think its helps me stay on track. Guidelines are 3 meals, 2 snacks if needed, 8 glasses H2O, move more, and 8:00 stop eating, also try to keep calories 400 at meal and 150 at snacks, its a balancing act. Don't worry if you go over a few calories at a meal you can adjust them at the next meal or snack. That is what I am trying to do for now. Its seems to help. Not a fast way but maybe a lasting one. Let you know. ANNIE HAVE A GREAT DAY YOU ALL.

Don't give up Debbie M. WINNERS NEVER QUIT AND QUITTERS NEVER WIN. That's the saying I've been told. I have been trying ,its slow but it does work if you learn to sacrifice for what your working to accomplish and that's to feel good about yourself. Also, you can have anything that you want to eat but just a little of the heavy stuff that got us in this shape. When I lose a few pounds I am going to get me one of my favorite treats. I no you shouldn't reward yourself with food but I am. What ever works for you will led to success. Talk later, have great day . ANNIE

Thank you Annie, I appriciate the encouragement.
My father was talking about forgiveness yesterday. He said each day wake up to a new day with a new start. Forgive those around you and forget it. It's what Jesus died to do! To forgive us! So we must forgive also. This is the same with dieting. We must start out each new day fresh! And today I thought I would add forgiveness to myself. Forgiveness for letting myself down by gaining weight and not taking care of the body that God has given me. I start this new day forgiving myself and loving myself. It's a new day!!!! smile
Now..... on to portion control.

I am fatter too. And right now struggling with diabetes. I am 62 years young (isn't that what they say). Sort of thinking about trying again. That's what made me remember this site. I remember always feeling comforted here. I have two grown children and a grown neice that my husband and I raised (so she is my third child). I have 2 grandchildren and another on the way in February. I have a lot of support but I miss Tom (my husband) terribly. He was Italian, loved to eat but was not fat. I got fat but he never minded. He said that he loved me that way. But I want to get healthy....maybe this can be a new start. Thanks for asking. Tell me something about yourself, Debbie M. (Great name, right?)

My husband is Italian too! He used to be fat when we got married and I was think. Now it the other way around. He does love me too but I know he liked my shape when I was thin. He is encouraging and accepting at the same time.
I just turned 50 this year and I have 4 semi grown kids. 21, 19, 16 and 14. None are married and all live at home besides the 19yr old who is away at college. I'm picking her up tomorrow for the Christmas break. ITs will be great to have them all home.
I'm sure you miss Tom, I know I would Steve. We have a very good marriage and have been married for 26 years. We met in the senior year of high school and have been in love ever since. We have had the busiest year of our lives with a job change and a child going off to school. Crazy. I think I was stress eating.
But that has got to stop. I can't get any fatter.
I'm so glad you are here DebbieL. I'll try to come back and look for you often. This board has been quiet lately so it might be just you and me. :)
The no flour no sugar way is such a good way to treat diabetes. We can make good changes and lose a few! At least maintain during the Holiday season. THat alone would be a win. smile

Seasons greetings everyone! I'm trying to be extra strong going into this holiday season...so much temptation. Weighed in at 153.8 this morning. Slowly but surely so far.

It is always so revealing to read our posts, look at the reasons we eat, or overeat. Loss, stress, even good times call us to celebrate with food. If only we could replace the bad habits with some healthy habits. My husband is probably going to take a job where he will be on the road 95% of the time. I'm trying to be positive and supportive, but I think I will be pretty lonely. Food can't be my pacifier.

Happy New Year! I'm new and starting the no flour no sugar diet today. I'm pretty cranky tho without my sugar :) I've done this diet before and lost over 20 lbs. Last year (2013) a week before Christmas I fell at a HyVee gas station and broke my tibia and fibula. I had to have major surgery and rods in my leg and after 3 months of being on crutches I gained some serious weight. I live on the river and I need to lose this weight in time for bikini season :) I'm young (37 years young haha) and need to get healthy again :) Hope you guys can all help me with recipes and cravings.

PS I think I ate the entire two weeks around Christmas nothing but junk food and don't even want to see the scale, is that bad?
Debbie M.
posted 7-Jan-2015 1:11am

Welcome JoAnn! So sorry about your bad luck with the fall. (I hope the station is paying your medical bills) That is a terrible way to gain weight. I gain some myself after I fell off a horse and cracked my hip and got a concussion and broke both my wrists. But that was 30 years ago. The rest was a little before, during and after having kids. some medications that I was on for years did not help. I'm not on those anymore so what is my problem now? Inactivity due to ACL tears in both my knees. They are very unstable and I never know if I'll be in pain from one minute to the next. Walking is the best I can do as moving quickly is out. Biking is good. I have a bike I can ride in my livingroom. I really need to do that.
You said you did no flour no sugar before. How long did it take you to get over the sugar?
Bikini season is coming for sure. SO get busy!! You can do it!
See ya next time.

Hi Debbie. Sounds like you know exactly how I felt :) When you ask how long did it take me to get over the sugar, do you mean how long until I quit craving it? The first week is the absolute WORST, after that it trailed off...I think I have a salt addiction more than sugar or flour haha...I can't seem to go without potatoe chips...bad I know. This week has been very stressful for me so I'm kind of glad I'm on this diet otherwise I'd be in the cabinets lol...Are you on the no sugar no flour diet?

Morning all. The last time I checked I weighed 155 or 156, something like that. Big changes around here. My husband took a job where he's gone for months at a time. So, I have no one to cook for, so I really don't cook. It is very strange to be alone, but I'm adjusting. I have become addicted to knitting, so much to learn. I knit, knit, knit...so I sit, sit, sit! It has helped me transition to my new lifestyle and I think in time I will find more balance with my daily routine. I am staying NFNS 90% of the time and I am trying to eat more fresh food everyday. And once again I am trying to stay away from cheese! That is so hard for me, I just love it.

I started eating premade frozen foods because cooking for one is terrible. I really liked the stuffed crust pizza and ate a ton of them! I always added some extra cheese. I'm sure you can guess where that got me. But a couple of weeks ago I sort of snapped out of it and quit eating cheese. My sister, who has celiac, has been visiting this week so I have been eating really healthy. We tried a couple of recipes from skinny eats (youtube) and this morning I'm back down to 155. So, I am back at it and feeling stronger than I have in a long time. Good luck to all of you in this quest for better health.

Today I took my neighbor grocery shopping and for the first time I could tell I've dropped a few pounds. I could feel it in my jeans and it was AWESOME! I needed that boost. I have been very diligent...no cheating...and it finally feels second nature to make good food choices. I think I weighed 153.4 this morning. Slowly but surely.


My latest food love is speg squash with a cooked turkey burger (cut into bite sized chunks) and a 100 calorie pack of guacamole and a dash of olive oil all mixed up. It is so yummy and very satisfying. I can't stand being hungry so I use a lot of speg squash for that. I still haven't had any cheese and I'm substituting olive oil for butter almost all of the time. Also, I'm limiting by Ezek muffins to a couple times a week, mostly I'm eating veggies with a small protein.

I met with K10! She is awesome and we had a wonderful time. She's back in her home town now but I want her to visit again really soon. We toured a local University and eat at the local 'grab some grub' and a wonderful time was had by all. smile
I really need to get back to no flour and no sugar way of eating. Its the only thing that helps my gut. I'm bloated most the time when I eat the typical American diet and its packing on the pounds. When I have been NF NS in the past I have had NO gas! I want to be comfortable again. Today was pretty good. I will try to do it again tomorrow.
Have any of you tried Naked Juices? They are really good and have no added sugar.They contain things I would not normally eat like Kale and spinach. There are many many different flavors and different ingredients.
Good night
Happy Memorial Day everyone.

Paloe diet is even harder to follow, but might bring more results, or more cravings? I think I'll just try to keep my snacks paleo!

Paleo diet is NFNS, also no legumes, grains, or dairy. Hard to find what you can eat sometimes.

Morning all...if anyone is there! I have a wedding coming up, Sept 12th. So shopping for a dress last Sunday. I ended up in front of a some huge mirrors and it was completely depressing. My weight is up...again...I'm back wearing a size 14 jeans. Of course I know how I gained it, eating everything and anything I want. And truly I have enjoyed every bite, but none of my cloths fit and I couldn't find anything at the mall so I have decided the indulgence is over and I'm back on nfns. I started on Monday, down 1 1/2 pounds and hoping to lose 10 lbs by the wedding. I would love to lose 15 in total. my starting weight was 163 and this morning it was 161.2. I can't eat anything I want and maintain a healthy weight. I am being really strict right now...I know once I get to weight I am comfortable with I can eat more, but for now it's lots of water and only nfns foods.

No change in my weight this morning, but today is my 5th day and I'm starting to feel settled in with this eating plan. Today will be a test, I'm taking my neighbor to the doc and she will probably want to have lunch after. I'm going to have lunch at home, I'll insist.

I made it home without being tempted to eat out, but I found myself hungry this afternoon. I pushed through it without eating before dinner, but it was tough. I hope that doesn't happen often. I need to increase my water intake, maybe that was part of the problem. Anyway, I'm committed and I hope someone joins me in this. Night.

Didn't lose anything...but didn't gain anything either! I think it takes time for my body to kick in and start dropping...I hope. I'm not having any trouble sticking to the plan...the last few weight lose attempts were short lived. I am being careful with my grain intake because my body converts that to fat lickity split. A banana everyday. Time will tell if I can do this again successfully.

Good morning ladies, down to 214, no extraordinary steps just no wheat, no flour and no sugar. I lost weight with this diet before (went down to 199) but then got complacent and gained it all back. And then tried about 20 other diets that I couldn't stick to. This diet may not be perfect but at least I can stick to it without going crazy. So I will try to hang in there and hope you do too!
Connie
posted 30-Aug-2015 9:51am

I am hanging in there! Down to 160.4 this morning. 3 lbs lost so far! Honestly, I am not only sticking to NFNS but I am also limiting my intake. Sometimes I get hungry between meals, so I drink water and have a few cashews, very few. I know the foods I am eating are nutrient rich so I think it's ok to be hungry now and then. now way do I plan on being hungry forever, just now while I'm losing. I'm feeling strong so far, I can do this!

Good to hear from you Greg. Maybe we can motivate some others.

158.6. Almost 5 lbs down! I confess I have had some hunger pains in between meals, but not huge cravings I can't deal with. My diet before was so out of control, my stomach needs time to shrink. I'm feeling strong enough to stick with this.

I watched a video this morning that brought me back here to check out the acitivity on NFNS. The video was called "Bright lights"..... I believe that was the name, I will have to check that out again. She is totally advocating the best way to change your brain so that you are able to be in control of your eating, to not have cravings and, to have long lasting success is to kick sugar and flour to the curb. I know from experience that NFNS was fabulous for getting rid of cravings and, also for not feeling hungry all of the time. I also know that life happens and that NFNS over time can be difficult. I am considering giving it a go again. I haven't totally made the commitment but, I think I can get to doing that smile

Hello Connie and Bronwyn. I just thought I would stop by and say hi.
I think that NFNS is a great way to lose weight. I am addicted to sugar and I know it.
I need to cut it out of my diet. It has been very hot and humid here for a long time,
but fortunately there has been some cooling. Obviously, it is always too hot for me.
Take care ladies.

Hi,,,, hey I mentioned the name of a video in my last post but, the right name was bright lines, not lights. I don't know too much about the program because I did not join the boot camp. I toyed with the idea but, I just don't feel like I should spend 1000$ for an 8 week program until I know I will actually do it. She provided some free interesting videos though that I feel I need to commit to at least some of the principles of the program. Of course, her big thing is taking sugar and flour out of your diet. She says that will go the furthest in helping you to get in control of cravings and over eating. The one time I did that for 2 months consistently, I honestly did find that I just wasn't always feeling hungry and craving something. I wish I had maintained that as just something I did all of the time. I lost 10 lbs. without doing anything else specifically and I felt good. I know one more of the concepts of her eating program is to quit snacking. She wants you to eat 3 meals a day.... not to be constantly snacking and thinking about food. I know thinking about food way too often and snacking is a big problem for me..... it is so much easier to over eat when you are snacking. It made me think of a friend of mine who has remained very thin her whole life, even with having had 6 children, she never snacks even when preparing meals. She never dieted as such, she just ate 3 square meals a day and, that was it. I don't know why that should be so hard...... but, I do find that kind of hard. Bright lines says that no flour, no sugar and eating 3 meals a day takes away the need to have incredible will power...... that you just don't have the cravings.

Nice to see your name there K10.........lets cut out sugar and give it a go smile

Annie on Monday I started back on NFNS. I am doing this along with bright line eating. I am hoping to have more success with the addition of bright lines philosophy. The idea is that besides eating NFNS, you also only eat 3 meals a day with no snacking. You are also suppose to weigh your food to get the correct macronutrients. It is a little more focused than just NFNS. I am having the benefit of reduced cravings by not having sugar. I feel I am also benefitting from the discipline of not constantly snacking.

Hey there peeps! I like that idea Bronwyn. Good to see some names from the past. I hope all is well with you. I on the other hand am fatter than EVER and need to focus on myself and get my out of control weight under control. I do good for a couple weeks and then fail. I just cannot seem to maintain my gusto. I still have all the kiddos (4) at home. 22. 20, 17 and 15. They are a constant hardship as they influence what is bought and served. I could just refuse to buy the junk but they bring it in and I cave. I am completely responsibkle for what I eat or don't eat. I need to be stronger. I hope you all keep coming back here for encouragement. I would like to.

Hey Deb, I am so sick of failing. I had a great start on the bright lines eating..... which includes NFNS and, then I returned to old habits. Then I became discouraged and, found myself bingeing on chocolate again😩😖😢. I know that no sugar is the best way for me to correct the direction I heading.

I am recommitting as well. I have ate myself up to 170! Just eating really REALLY irresponsibly. I'm on day 3. Just starting out again, but the cravings are already a lot better. Step one was a trip to the grocery store and an announcement to the family that I am doing this and if anyone is eating here, they are doing it too. I checked out the NFNS group on facebook, some good ideas on there, but I have to try and control my cheese addiction as well. Here's to us ladies...the group that just will not give up!

164.4 this morning. This week has had some trials, but nothing I couldn't overcome. I have had some times when I was hungry, I always drank a couple glasses of water (a huge help!) or had a cup of decaf. A couple of times I could not wait for my husband to get home from work before I had my dinner. I've made sure I had a piece of fruit and some veggies everyday. I have not snacked at all between meals and I have stayed out of the kitchen as much as possible. I hope I can manage week two as well as week one.

I made the cloud bread (recipe on FB in the NFNS group) and had it with the soup from the same place. It was really good! The recipes on there are great. This week I'm going to try the mock Alfredo sauce (made with mostly cauliflower) to have with some prime rib I froze after Christmas dinner. And there's a cashew broccoli (I think) dish I'm going to try too. I ordered something off Amazon that turns your veggies into noodles. I need this variety.

You have some good ideas here Connie. Sounds like you are making progress. I wish I was. I'm in a really bad depressed state. I have some odd pain on my side that screams shingles. It's the 5th day but no rash has appeared yet. Maybe its not shingles. Still the pain is there. I guess I qualify to be in the "keep trying" category as I still come here. I wish something would click so I could take off and do this thing.

I know it's much harder for you Debbie, than for me. I can clean out the kitchen, you have teenagers at home that are not eating this way. The temptations wear you down. I can only say I am ready to do this. For a long time I wasn't. I couldn't stay on it for more than 3 or 4 days. Having passed the first few days, I really am craving free. It feels like it may stick this time. 164 this morning. I am going to try a few more of the recipes on FB this week. I'll let you know which ones I like. Last night I made the cloud bread with sour cream to have with my soup, it was awesome!

Morning ladies. Yesterday I was down 1/2 lb, bringing my total weight loss down to seven lbs. I feel only the slightest bit better in my yoga pants. I made the cashew sauce with sautéed spiralized sweet potato noodles and spinach. It was good, I added some diced baked chicken to it. I have never had cashew sauce, it was interesting. I grew on me as I ate it and will make it again. I dehydrated some fugi apples (my favorite) and they were wonderful. I made them for a seven year old girl who spent the night with me, she gobbled them down! The vinegar chips came out way too salty. I am going to make them again without adding any salt. Unfortunately, hubby and seven year old made pancakes this morning and I had to have one. Oh well.

Nice to hear from you Bronwyn, our resident food aficionado. We can always use your tips and advice. That is sad news about dark chocolate, that's my favorite as well. Where are you living now? I made the cloud bread with sour cream, but next I am going to make it with cream cheese to see which I like best.

How are you doing Debbie? I thought of you the other day, the weather was nice and I know you like to walk when the weather permits. Are you still working part time? You would probably benefit from some sun shine. I turned my dinning room into my sitting (knitting) room. It is the only room in our house that gets any sun light. I love it!

It seems winter has flown by, we really barely had a winter here in west TN, this is the perfect time for all of us to give this another go. Here's to use ladies...the group that just will not give up!

I just keep reading so many negative things about sugar. I find it hard to get sugar totally out of my life. I definitely do not eat as many treats as often as I used to but, I need to do so much better.

Connie we moved from Montreal back to Alberta just before Christmas. We have bought a little house and we are doing renovations. I don't have a kitchen at the moment....ripped out. I am using that as a bit of an excuse for not really following an eating program......always an excuse, eh😁😩😳😡

Congrats on the house Bronwyn. I know it must feel pretty good to have your own place again. Do you miss your big house? Its sure was beautiful. I am recovering from a pulled muscle in you mif back right side. Its very painful and I have muscle relaxers and pain killers to help me out. My doc said I should not work while on them as I have responsibilities that might suffer if I needed to call a code. I took part of last week off and now the rest of this week as well. Who knew a pulled muscle could be so blasted painful.
I am working 22 hours a week now Connie. Still every other Sunday but they are all day time hours now. I recently caught up with a friend of mine who I used to go to grade school with. Lisa was and is a dear friend that I am glad to be reunited with. She has the same weight problem I have.
I hate to admit my weight. I would be so embarrassed to have anyone know what it is. At the same time why do I not do something about it. Here I sit in sweat pants and a zip up sweat shirt to hide my disgusting stomach. I won't be able to do that when the warmer weather comes. We have had such a nice mild winter. Its 65 today and it reminds me of how my "cold" weather days are dwindling away. I need to get on it................as usual. I have not been walking at all. WE got a puppy a couple weeks ago and hope to walk her. If fact I might walk her today. her name is Scout and she is a black Lab. We got her from a breader in Michigan near Jackson. Boy are puppies a lot of work. She is at the stage where everything goes in her mouth including your hands. Ugh. She is cute though.

Blew my healthy eating plan for awhile. Back on starting today. Sometimes my "want to" just disappears! I'm not getting out of the house much, things are stressful here. Today I think I'll go look at atc fitness. And I thought about maybe trying meal replacement shakes, but which one? There are so many and I want one without sugar or chemical sugar. I need to have more social interaction, but that is hard for me. I think I'm becoming slightly depressed. But today I will try for healthy options, one day at a time I guess.

We redid our kitchen years back and it pretty much ruined me for fast food. What a bother it was!

I had to put one of our dogs down this week, she was 18, while at the vet a puppy came in and I caught puppy fever! Puppies are a huge amount of work, but geez, they are wonderful! We have had 2 black labs, they are such a wonderful breed.

Great day ladies,

Connie we just got a puppy 5 weeks ago. She is a tremendous amount of work. But, as you already know, because you already have had dogs,after you put the work in, they are right where you want them and it all pays off. The best thing for a broken heart is a puppy for sure. Our pup is a joy and beautiful we are in full training mode. Ugh.

Oh Connie, I forgot to say how sorry I am that your dog is gone. I lost a dog 5 or 6 years ago and it took so long to get along without her. What was your dogs name and what kind was she? 18 sure is a long time to live. That means you took very good care of her and you and she were blessed with a very long life. Was she a Lab as well? Seems like maybe she was a smaller dog as they usually live a little longer than Labs. The dog I lost was a Yorkie and she was only 5.5. I believe she had Lymphoma. Such a sad time with so much heart ache. Blessings to you COnnie. Tell us if you get a puppy new friend. :) We can raise them together.
