I saw an artical in my local News paper about the No Sugar No Flour Diet by Dr. Gott. I was woundering if any one has tried it yet? it sounds easy but is it really?

I've heard of it, but have not technically tried it. I too stay away from most "white" foods as a general rule.

I am moving in 2 weeks to Washington state and I am so excited because down here in the south, health is not an important matter for the general public. Our organic section in most store consists of about 2 to 3 items…up in Washington most people are "health nuts"…the organic section there is actually bigger than the regular vegetable section…there are isles of staple foods that are geared towards diabetic, and there are frozen food sections like this as well. I am very excited, because hopefully I will be able to get better food for myself…

Good luck with your move Vicki. In the last year my son and I went to all natural and organic food and it's been great. We cook our own meals instead of relying on prepackaged manufactured food and we are both feeling better for it. I've lost 55 lbs in the last 10 months and he's lost a lot too (not sure how much). Being chemical free now makes us both feel better in general. Enjoy Washington!!

I've never heard of that specific diet but through my research on foods that work for me and foods that don't, I've found that 'white' foods in general are an issue for me. White flour, white sugar, white rice, white potatoes, etc… I think there is information about this if you google it too. I was always told to beware of white foods except vegetables although the only white vegetable I can think of is cauliflower or parsnips and those are ok. The general thinking on the white foods is that they are starchy or very refined as in flour and sugar and whole grains work best for humans in general not just diabetics. :)
