No Flour/No Sugar Eating Plan

  1. 10 years ago


    Thank you so much for such a nice site and this forum! My question is that recently I have been on a no sugar/no flour diet plan because I have found it to greatly help with my anxiety, nervousness and feelings of being overwhelmed in daily situations, which sugar especially aggravates. However, I have been experiencing some problems, such as consistent fatigue upon waking up, random pain in my body (nothing too serious), and it seems like my hair has been starting to fall out upon starting this diet. I am much more careful now with my diet than a few months ago when I started, making sure to eat more variety. I eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, grains such as oats, quinoa and hot cereals, flax, olive oil and occasionally meat. I avoid all flours, even whole grain ones, all sugars, including honey and dried fruits, and all dairy. My fatigue has improved since adding sea salt to my diet, which I was very low on (only about 20mg per day), but I am starting to wonder about my hair and occasional random pain in different areas of my body, such as my arms or heels (it's nothing permanent or that painful, just weird). Is this some sort of detoxification process? When I do eat some bread (which usually contains a bit of sugar), I end up having much more energy the next day. Thank you for any advice or comments you can give!

    Hello Wayne,

    You should be able to eat sprouted grain breads (Ezekial, Sun Seed, Manna, etc.) with no problems. Just read the labels to be sure the one(s) you select contain no added flour or sugars.

    Also, be sure you're getting adequate, easily digestible protein (eggs from organically raised, free-range chickens are your best source) every day.

    As for your salt, moisten the tip of your little finger and touch it to some of your sea salt before each meal. If it tastes really good, add salt to that meal. If not, do not. This is the easiest way to insure you're getting the salt you need.

    If none of this helps, call 800-614-4400 and ask for the name(s) of the Enzyme Therapy Specialist closest to your location. See one of these therapists for an evaluation to help determine the exact cause of your persistent fatigue.

    Best of Health,
