No Flour, No Sugar Diet


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.


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.


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).


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.

I had brown rice with the rest of the steak from dinner last night with some soy sauce. If I want to eat before dinner in about 5 hours I will have an apple.

I am making a soup with broth, garlic, carrots, cabbage, onion, sm amount of celery, can of diced tomatoes, some seasonings, kind of like the Weight Watcher no point soup. I also added some no sugar ketchup because I didn't think of the tomatoes until I put it in. I wonder if it will taste good???? I will eat it for lunches I think.

My BIL just brought home Hawaiian rolls and some dessert things that look like sweet rolls with cream in the middle. I am not tempted by the dessert things because I haven't had them. I think I told him the other night I was going to eat better because I raided his candy bowl on Sunday for that reason. He has a major weight problem. I am concerned and I know it is probably one of the reasons he is having such a hard time getting a job on top of all the issues America is having right now.

You know what I have a hard time with? When I try to eat smaller meals more often and I feel hungry sooner I feel like I am pigging out. Even though I am not, because I am eating less each time, it just messes with my head.

I watched a weight loss story recently and the lady ate every two hours from 6am-6pm and she has lost 90 pounds or more in a year. She also has a V8 each morning and doesn't eat after 6 pm. She eats her biggest meals in the morning and afternoon. She is single, so that makes a difference. She was on Secret Lives of Women and she is on Youtube. Enter watch me lose weight her name on there is fatty2slim. #3 is the one she talks about what I just told you.

I used to eat 1 egg and 3 egg whites as a scramble, when I was doing the Weight Watchers Core program. That is similar to NFNS in a way. I feel so wasteful throwing away the yolk. My cholesterol is fine so I am not going to worry about that right now.

Hey a nice warm drink idea.....I bought some non-sweetened chocolate almond milk (I will check the brand) and I heated it and steeped an herbal berry tea bag in it. I think orange or peppermint would be good as well. A cup is 40 calories and it is satisfying in a warm, creamy way without the calories.

I know I hate to throw out the yolks as well, I buy expensive eggs. I guess you could use egg beaters. The thing is I don't love eggs and egg them very seldom anyways. K10 I mentioned this before but I also think that having cottage cheese and fruit on your oatmeal makes it more satisfying over the long haul. YOu hear about the benefits of eating every two hours but really I am just trying to spread out times between my eating because I find I could eat non-stop and I want to stop that behaviour.

I remember when people would cut out the center of a Hawiian Loaf and put spinach dip in it. Then they would cube the cut out part and spread it around the bottom of the loaf on a tray. Beautiful presentation. I never likes Hawaiin bread, too sweet. It's always nice when I don't like a no-no food.

I have read about people eating every couple of hours and losing weight. You would really have to watch your intake, but the idea makes a lot of sense. Still working on the plumbing.

The lady ate 7 times a day and drank water each time she ate. If you limited it to an average of 200 calories per time you would only consume 1400 calories a day. I would like to see her meal plan.

K10 did you get any test results back yet? Have you been feeling ok?

I miss going to church. We were so involved in ours before we left it. We have gone on and off to a new one down the street and one across town. They're nice but we just haven't connected like we did in the other one. Don't ask me what happened in the one we left. It's too complicated to try to explain on here.

We had cheese and Triscuits tonight. I think I ate a few too many but still NFNS. For supper I had a BLT on Eziekiel bread.

Debbie I know what it feels like when you don't sleep. I haven't accomplished much today because of my restless night last night. I went and laid on the couch tonight to watch a show and fell asleep....oh no, not looking good for tonight either. It is 11:30 here and I think I only slept half an hour but that can be enough to ruin the whole night.

Ate well.....this is what I ate: cottage cheese and pear with 2 rice cakes and almond butter, almond chocolate milk with a tea bag, salmon/ brown rice/ roasted low carb veggies, and a bowl of blueberries with sugar free blueberry yoghurt and 2 rice cakes crumbled in and another chocolate almond milk with a tea bag. Didn't figure calories but portions were good I think. As I look over it though I see a need for more veggies and less rice cakes. NFNS and most of it as close to nature as you get.

Hope you guys have a good sleep.....hope you are back in bed and snoozing Debbie.

I aim for 1600 calories per day. I think I often miss the mark slightly, but that's my aim. I saw the last 30 minutes of the Biggest Loser last night.
I think I'm at 144 lbs. (5'6") 59 years old on Dec. 13. During the nice weather when I could walk hills I was at 141 lbs. If I tried to work out at the gym like they do on the Biggest Loser I'd probably injure something. I am more of a Yoga person.
Do you all chew gum occasionally? I tried eating a box of raisins for evening snack-but it felt like I was gaining weight doing that.

In there somewhere I will make hamburger soup for supper and a couple loads of laundry. Maybe a nap? Still the tree sits naked.

What are our biggest obstacles to weight control and how do we overcome them? I have a daughter who is a great cook and has a reputation as a great baker, and I think this is making her overweight. Everyone calls on her to make the birthday cupcakes and desserts for ever holiday. She is a people pleaser and can't say no.

My biggest obstacle is that I enjoy the social part of eating out and need to figure out how to stay strong when I go out- and only order the kids meal grilled chicken at Cracker Barrel with a side salad and not cave in and order dessert or eat the biscuits.

I am lucky that I do live alone, because I can prepare just my food and don't have to cook something the whole family will eat. My mom's food has to be gluten free so I can feed her a lot of what I eat. She is pretty easy to cook for.

We have to develop a lifestyle that creates healthy behavior. Managing my impulses is a problem for me. I tend to get an ideas in my head to go thru a drive thru and end up ordering something that is not good for me. If I really thought it through I would stay away from fast food. That is my goal. I would love it if there were some no flour no sugar restaurants out there. I have to stay true to eating for health and nourishment, not convenience. I was so lucky that I stayed well all during the time I was off the flour and sugar.

I came home and had a vegan Boca burger with NS added ketchup and 2 light Laughing Cow cheeses. I hate when I get so hungry.

I am going to be making desserts for the youth progressive dinner that ends at my house on Friday.

I know I will eat some of it, but since I don't plan on totally giving up Christmas treats I will be good on the days I don't have an event and eat less than I normally would of the treat. After the new year it is so much easier. So many people are dieting.

Since I signed up for the Biggest Loser pledge I think that will help me with my goal. I wonder if 25 pounds in 6 months is realistic? I think it is if I am totally committed.

Page 23 of Dr. Phil's book says you have to work on building the right mind set in order to get on and stay on the right track.

Page 25-When you acknowledge the truth about yourself, shortcomings and all, but without beating up on yourself unnecessarily, this prompts you to make important and timely steps toward change. It sends you on your way to creating a new, healthy experience.

When you treat yourself with respect,taking care of yourself, weight loss is easier. The truth I have to understand for myself is that putting junk into my body is disrespectful. I must have realistic goals with specifically defined actions for reaching them. 8 glasses of water a day may not work for me. On Dr. Oz, he showed how much water content is in some foods. So we get a lot of water in our food, and maybe I don't actually need to drink 8 glasses.

How are some ways you have programmed your world for success? Please give me some new ideas!

Sorry about the double post. I thought I caught it in time to make my correction. Oh well, that is what I get for teasing you Debbie. :)

I found the blog. Like what she said about needing a smack in the face. I prefer kick in the butt. We all need someone to shake us back to reality sometimes and say "What in the heck do you think you are doing to yourself?"

How much money do people make by putting things on youtube? I thought I heard on tv that a woman was getting a check from her grandsons video where he said he only liked her when she gave him cookies. Is it from so many hits? They mentioned the advertising in the story. Great idea to lose 100 pounds and make money in the process.

hehe ground bee! It would take a lot of them to make my soup.

I don't think you make money on youtube. But I could be wrong. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. It think there is a lot of truth to it. She sounds reasonable. I'm sorry she lost her mother.

K10 actually the biggest concern is if ground bee is sugar freesmile

I don't know if you make money from posting on U-Tube or not. Who would pay you. The woman who did fat 2skinny went to a lot of work to make posts every week through her weight loss journey maybe she made money I don't know, that would be interesting to know. There is one called underground wellness and he posts constantly....wonder if he makes money?

I guess I feel like "there is a time and season" for child care and that is why we can't have them when we are older. It would be exhausting and so restrictive to have a small child all the time but, then with that said I would probably do it for my kids if they needed help.

Are you all sending Christmas cards this year? Stamps are expensive. Seems like people are sending electronic cards. I remember a time we got 50 cards in the mail. This year only 2 so far.

I heard it costs over a dollar to send a card from Canada to the US. Is that right Bronwyn?
posted 10-Dec-2009 2:27pm

Debbie I am not sure. I never write letters except e-mails. I believe that the Canadian stamp for posting a letter in Canada is 55 cents.....I can't remember I will have to check my stamps and see. I never got into doing Christmas cards and overall, I would rather call and wish people Merry Christmas. I just couldn't see the reason to send people I see all the time Christmas cards. Then there are those Christmas letters where when you read them everything sounds so incredibly wonderful. My brother did a spoof Christmas letter one year and it was so hilarious. At first when I started to read it I was confused and thinking what in the world is he talking about......and then as I got further into it I was cracking up, so funny. Due to the fact that I don't send Christmas cards out over the years Christmas cards coming in have really dwindled. I still get a few Christmas letters from different people every year.

I need to get busy here. I started into reading the blog mentioned up above and then found tons of weight loss blogs and started to read them. I have been way side tracked here. I haven't even had anything to eat yet.

Okay I have been NFNS for 4 is 5.....I was hoping to see a big of a down ward tread on the scales....nothing yet. I just am going to keep plugging along and hope for even a tiny lose by Monday. I think realistically if I can lose 2 to 4 lbs. a month I will have to be satisfied with that.

I read comment on )The woman who lost 100 lbs." blog.........(encouraged by her weight loss without a lot of exercise)

Another Jenn 12-10-2009 @ 9:56AM

Jen ~ what a great blog. I have dropped 65 lbs and 70 inches this year myself. You said it perfectly... it's making healthy choices over and over and over.... even when you don't want to. Does that mean I never have a glass, or two, of wine? Does that mean I never have a bite of pizza? NO! But it does mean that each day is an opportunity to make new choices that are good for me. And for those that have trouble (as I do, due to injury) exercising... I have lost all of my weight with diet alone. With a bum knee and arm from an accident, exercise is not an option... it CAN be done! Do I go to bed hungry some nights? Sure I do... but it's worth it when I get on the scale in the morning. And there are no quick fixes.. it's real food, 3 meals and 2 snacks each day.

Regarding Christmas cards, I used to send up to 100 of them between, family, church, etc. My rule has been if I don't get a card from you for 2 years I stop sending them. There are some people I send to whether or not we get one from them. With money so tight this year I really don't know if I will send one or not. With Facebook alot of the people I send to see pictures on there. I may send a few to family friends, people that knew me when I was little etc. I put a pic of the kids in or on the card generally.

Maybe I will email them this year. I love receiving them though, even reading those letters.

Back to baking.

I finally made it through reading all the posts. GOOOOOOOOO HILDA!!! I am trying to finish up the ironing, maybe a couple of hours and that will be done. I bought some Christmas on line. I am feeling overwhelmed...I hate that. I am supposed to fly out to Oregon on Sunday. The timing is terrible. I have so much to do this time of year, daughters birthday is on the 19th. I will be flying back on the 17th. There is a small chance it will be settled (everyone say a prayer for that please!) but I am going forward as if I'm leaving on Sunday. When it comes to Christmas cards, I don't do them. I never had time and I am not going to start now. I tend to go with the simple approach to life and card giving would be so much work. I better get back to the ironing. Love you guys!

Why go to Oregon?
posted 10-Dec-2009 4:01pm

Connie was the Oregon trip for the settling of your families said if it gets settled you won't have to go. Mind you I thought the estate had already been settled.

Food today.....3/4 cup of cottage cheese, 3/4 cup of blueberries, 1/8 cup of slivered almonds
......1 cup sweet potato, 2 salmon patties and a green smoothie

Happy Happy Joy Joy! Court was canceled. It is my friends case, her ex is trying to get her inheritance out of her. It is a long convoluted story, but the short version is this...she inherited money and bought some properties and made him some loans. He is now trying to claim they were gifts. He wants to trade the property for the child. It is a big ugly mess. Anyway, I was going to testify to his behavior and comments when he came here. I think he is going to get spanked, but he lives in la la land and in his mind he gets to keep everything. Of course my friend is disappointed. But I am so glad. The case was making everything else seem too rushed.

We finished with my dads estate last year at this time. My evil stepmother spent all her cash on attorneys and lost all of her appeals. Basically she was left with nothing. She had 100K and gave it all to the attorneys trying to get the rest of the estate in her greedy little fingers. She actually owed the estate 60K but we forgave it. She didn't have it to pay back anyway.

OMG, I am so relieved!

posted 10-Dec-2009 6:18pm

Oh yeah I had forgot about the greedy, horrible husband thing. Will you have to go at a later date or was it thrown out. I know K10 I have to make some dessert things.....I don't like to do that.....well that isn't exactly true as I do love to do that but not right now. K10 just don't lick your fingers or the bowl....that can be enough to make you want more and more (well at least that is how it works for me smile

posted 10-Dec-2009 8:40pm

Yes, the court date will be rescheduled. No idea when that will be. The greedy ex is was a boyfriend, not a husband. I call him and his attorney "team evil." Bronwyn, you are so right about the finger tasting leading to wanting more and more. I think it is that way for everyone. I wish you could be making a casserole instead!

My friend found out the job is coming down to her and one other applicant. She should hear something in the next day or so. I told her I couldn't babysit full time. She understood. Her shift is going to alternate monthly I guess. So I will babysit on the 3 pm to 11 pm and the 11 pm to the 7 am shifts. I think I could handle that. We will see. Right now it is so nice and quiet here. I am so relaxed now. Tomorrow I have to work and then Saturday we are getting rain that might turn to ice. So I will have to stop and get some dog food on the way home tomorrow night. I think I have enough NFNS food on hand to get me through.

I have been NFNS all day and feel great because of it. I haven't weighed, just too busy. I will do it this weekend. You all sound good and strong. Dr Oz had a weight loss story today and the woman that lost said she could not have done it without support. It's funny, whenever I hear weight loss stories people always say they made up their minds and nothing was going to get in their way. That's what we all need to do. Make up our minds, really and truly and determinedly. The nothing can get in our way.
posted 10-Dec-2009 8:48pm

Connie....the hard thing is that when we do this with great determination and zest it is also difficult to not turn into a know what I mean. Remember the book the "Skinny B...."......I believe that they were did earn the title. I know a young woman who is going to take a year long whole foods course.....I would love, love, love to do that. It would be so fun. I don't know the cost or any of the details but it sounds so appealing. Mind you she weighs maybe 95 lbs.....can't quite see her and I attending this together frown

Thanks, Its 9:00 and I'm feeling a little sleepy. Going to bed soon.
posted 10-Dec-2009 9:08pm

Bronwyn, I always get pumped and happy when I'm NFNS. I feel on top of my world when I am eating right. Like a good responsible adult. Really, not acting like a kid and pretending I can do what I want when I want and it's ok. That must be why we all feel so shameful when we are overweight. Because we know we had a choice to act responsibly with food and we didn't. And the whole world can see the results. We can't hide it.

I hope we all sleep well tonight.
posted 11-Dec-2009 1:02am

Well I licked my fingers and then some. Tomorrow I will eat NFNS until it comes time for dessert and then I will be NFNS yet again. Skinny people eat treats and adjust when they are done. It will be so much easier after the holidays. I will be good all week until my hubby and I have our weekend together for our anniversary celebration. We were stupid and got married 5 days after Christmas. It is our 20th. Then back on until Christmas Eve and Christmas and after the January 1st I am going to go whole hog. I will be cleaning the house tomorrow for the company so I will have eggs for breakfast and be busy, busy, busy.

I really appreciate the support and criticism (I don't think that is the word I am looking for) of this site, but this is my reality at the moment. I used to blow for weeks at a time, at least now it is an evening or weekend possibly. I may have great NFNS access on my weekend with my hubby, but I don't know.

Pleasant sleep to everyone. Good night.

K10, It's sounds as if you are taking babysteps towards success. My Mom always said "You can't eat an elephant in one bite."
I'm glad you have a plan. Having a treat and then adjusting your day is a good way to counter act the effects. Being realistic is part of the plan. I think Dr. Gott would totally "get" it.

OK, Last night was successful with the Melatonin but there were circumstances that kept it from being Ideal. I would have to say it worked again. I took it a little later than before 6:30 instead of 7. & was better. Just as I was getting ready to go to bed I said something stoooopid to my husband causing him to got directly to bed. Then I spent the next several hours stuing about it, so I didn't go to bed until later. When I finally did go to bed I got up a couple times but finally slept good and deep. So I didn't get as much sleep as I should have but I think it did help me get quality sleep.
All is OK with husband this morning. We talked a little about it and its fine. We are under a lot of stress lately with the kids and Christmas and such but we will be fine.

199.5 even though I screwed up yesterdau and had some cookies the daughter baked and a hamburger bun to put my fish on. I need to think about why I caved in.

Correction on taking the Melatonin was better at 7 then 8:30. THats what I meant to say. But had it not been for the stupid thing I said It may have been OK.
