    Hello Maria,

    I’m moving in the direction of grain-free for myself for sure. Have dealt with candida outbreak and I think its mostly under control. Getting there, but not quite. And I’m slowly transitioning my boys in that direction as well – grain-free, that is.

    My question is…going grain-free…it seems like things are packed with nuts or higher fat content. I’m at a decent weight and would like to keep it that way. But I’m a little worried about weight gain. Also, I am very intolerant to eggs so I do flax eggs. But keep hearing you need to be full GAPS to use those??? Not sure why. Something about the fiber content.

    Any suggestions about how to keep my weight down while going grain-free?
    Any thoughts on egg-free cooking (i.e. flax eggs or chia eggs)?

      Hi Jess,

      It’s really the carbs that make adults gain weight, and a lot of people who go grain-free end up losing the weight and the bloat. Fat doesn’t make you fat! Fat is a great thing because it’s need to activate fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) and because it tells your brain pretty quickly when it’s time to stop eating.

      Going egg-free while doing GAPS is tricky if you want to have waffles, pancakes, muffins, etc. because eggs are used as a binder and are needed much more because there’s no gluten.
