My husband made dinner last night before I arrived home. It was a delicious meal of liver and onions. I had finished eating and was complimenting him on the liver. He said " I think the secret was the coating of flour and spices" I said "Oh, but I am not supposed to eat flour" "It was just a little" he said.
I think he thought I was overeacting. I literally felt as if I had eaten poison. LOL
I am up three pounds today.
He needs to be flogged with a wet noodle! He probably has those laying around somewhere too!
Seriously tho, as far as the 3 pounds, we can easily fluctuate that much in water.......BUT the last time I had something lightly breaded I was up the next day too, of course it could be the oils, the salts, or a combination of all.....or simply just the natural fluctuations of our body that we would have had if we had broccoli and steak
No, it's not a coincidence. A couple tablespoons of flour have been known to cause weight gains of up to 25 pounds in some individuals. Seek medical attention, your body is producing fat at such an accelerated rate your heart will clog and stop beating within the week.
Yeah I also believe that the weight change is completely unrelated. I just wanted to poke at my husband because he is somewhat bewildered by what I am doing. He is not willing to give up his grains...yet.
I think you need to up the ante. Take some acting classes, and learn to choke and feign death at the dinner table.
If it were me I would ask him to tell me when he is going to use wheat in a recipe. Then you can either a) Eat something else. or b) Ask him to not use wheat in your portion. c) Try and find a primal alternative, I'm sure coconut flour wouldve worked just fine as a substitute in this specific recipe for example. Your husband doesn't have to support you, but he shouldn't be sabotaging you either.
It might not be a coincidence. If I eat even a small amount of flour and grain I gain a lot of water overnight.
I'd respond to that by tossing out any flour that happened to still be in the house.
