Writing about myself has never been something that I enjoy doing but you are invited into my online kitchen where I share recipes, information about Gluten Free foods and recipes, and the Health benefits of living a gluten Free lifestyle.
I am not Gluten free for medical reasons from a doctor. I have chosen this lifestyle because I have done enough research to be convinced that gluten is the cause of a large part of our health problems. I feel much better and have more energy now that I have removed it from my diet.
I am a retired Executive Chef that has spent his whole life in a kitchen..By the time I retired, I had reached 337 pounds and it was taking a toll on my health. I was unhappy where I was at. My legs were giving out, and I was on meds for high blood pressure. I had been serving Whole Foods all my life but had been eating all the wrong things…..
So I turned to eating fresh Whole Foods, grass fed beef, free range chicken and wild caught Fish and gave up gluten. I started feeling a whole lot better about myself. To lose weight I adjusted to living a reduced carb lifestyle. Not the Under 20 carb a day lifestyle, but I reduced it to where I remain between 60 and 100 carbs a day. Low carb is from 150 carbs downward.
If you want to drop some weight but do not feel that you could maintain a 20 carb or less lifestyle then you are in the right place. I will share a lot of easy to make, Gluten Free whole food recipes that will help you. I will also share articles to help you with your chosen lifestyle.I have dropped 57 pounds as of this writing and never been hungry. My legs are no longer a problem and my blood pressure has returned to a low normal. I still have a ways to go and will share that progress as well.
It is important that you understand that I am a Chef and not a medical doctor. I do not give out medical advice. For all medical questions please see your medical doctor before starting any new diet. Please double check the ingredients of all recipes to insure that the products you are using are gluten free. I share this blog for general information only.
I would love you receive your comments in the area below each blog post. I answer each one. I like this blog to be a two way street where we can share information and help each other, so if you have a better way of doing something, share it there where others can read and benefit from it…..thanks and welcome
