Wheat-Free Weight Loss

I’ve given up wheat and I’m expecting to become lithe and slender any day now.

I got the idea from a book I saw recently in a bookstore (there’s a shocker – a book in a bookstore).  I didn’t read it, but I managed to get the gist from the title and the blurb on the back cover.  It turns out wheat is almost certainly the culprit responsible for my ever-expanding belly, and simply cutting it out of my diet will decrease my appetite and cause me to miraculously shed pounds.  Well, I’m game to give it a go!

It’s been going quite well, although it transpires that wheat is the primary ingredient in almost anything worth eating – bread, cakes, biscuits, bagels – the list goes on and on.  Thank goodness I still have chocolate, but not kit-kats.  I’m pretty certain that chocolate almonds, being both wheat free and full of essential fatty acids, are probably better than vegetables.

As I was slugging down Hubby’s vodka and orange this evening he laughingly warned me that it’s made with wheat.  Ha ha, I thought, you’re so hilariously witty.  Except he was right.  The brand I was drinking is apparently made only from the finest Swedish winter wheat.  Well clearly it doesn’t count once it’s distilled.

  1. Haha.. yes, the distilling makes the wheat vanish (or we can say it does).. good Luck with your wheat-free existence!
