Not Losing Weight on a Gluten Free Diet...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Jerry,

Interesting question. It's just very likely that you are simply not getting enough fat in your diet. Despite what 'They' tell us about fat, our extremely healthy hunter gatherer ancestors ate what we might consider enormous amounts of fat. And in places where they live at high altitude or have to walk mountain trails, they eat fat like crazy- think of the Tibetan Butter Tea that is drank several times per day.

The Masai people of Africa (at least when eating their traditional diet) eat almost nothing but cow's meat, milk and blood.

Coconut Oil, like this Raw Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is actually THERMOGENIC. So, what this means is that it is FAT BURNING. This is an interesting phenomenon because people who need to LOSE weight use coconut oil, yet if you check out bodybuilding magazines, all the guys use it to help them GAIN weight- in the form of lean body mass.

So, eat more 'GOOD' fats:

* Coconut Oil
* Organic (preferably raw) butter
* Whole milk products (raw only)
* Whole milk raw cheeses- even 'triple cream' cheeses like Brie and Camembert
* The fatty cuts of grass fed meats
* Egg Yolks

If you need more reassurance (and recipes to go along with your reassurance) then I suggest that you get the book Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats which gives not only LOTS of recipes, but information and studies about why fat and cholesterol are good for you.

Also, if you tend to be anxious, that's one of the Signs of Magnesium Deficiency!! You might want to consider getting extra magnesium as I outline on my Magnesium Dosage page to see if that might help out your anxiety!

Hope this helps.
