A note from Deanie:

There is only three days until we weigh for the month of January. We have been couped up in the house so much because of the snowy and cold weather. So you know what we always want to do? Yes , it is eat!!! I just know that Spring is just around the corner and we can get serious again about loosing a few more pounds. I sure would like to loose ten more pounds by this Summer.
I need to remember what my my motto is; eating to live - not living to eat!!

The "No Flour, No Sugar Diet"

The "Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet" is a low-calorie weight loss program developed by Dr. Peter H. Gott, based on the limitation of processed foods and refined sugar products. In addition, the program is designed to eliminate empty calories that hinder the body's natural process of consuming proteins, and other vital nutrients.

The process begins with the restriction of refined products such as white flour and sugar, in addition to the complete elimination of artificially sweeten food products, including honey, molasses, maple syrup, and brown sugar, along with substitutions for flour based foods, such as barley, corn, and other natural grain products.

As a result of Dr. Gott's long history of being a national newspaper columnist, the "No Sugar, No Flour" diet has been featured on several national news programs and other media outlets. While despite national exposure and popularity, the diet has been debated as being unrealistic, based on the reality of most people not being able to permanently eliminate traditional foods from their diets, such as sandwiches, cakes, pies, and pizza.

A note from Deanie:

This diet is not meant for long term use. It is designed to help us loose the weight that we need to loose and then go back to a sinceable and healthy lifestyle of eating!
