Can a Girl Live a Low Carb Gluten Free Life????

Yes, I've been gone, a long, long, time. Life totally interrupted with a series of major life changes and stresses. You know you've all seen the "Life Stress Test" Well it seems that for the last two years or so my scores have really been up there, new husband, new home, major renovation of said new home etc. Now we are adding change in diet for both of us. So in honor of that change I thought I'd get my butt in gear and start documenting some of the ways we'll be doing that.
I finally determined that gluten is not my friend, although I'm more gluten sensitive then anything. And the carbs...well, white carbs, you know the ones, white rice, white flour, white sugar, all those processed foods. While they may be tasty, I don't think they do anything positive for the body except help make us fat. Dont get me wrong, I think everything in moderation. So the hubby and I are changing out diet big time.
If you're curious stick around. We're switching to a lower carb, gluten free(ish) house. I think the transition may be rough but I suppose we'll see and since we've tossed the carbs he's already lost 20 lbs. Me, only 6 in the same time frame. wish me luck. I know I'm gonna need it.
