Gluten-free grains: Buckwheat, quinoa, rice, corn. Other gluten-free starch: Potato, soy, tapioca, arrowroot

Had real good gluten-free pasta last week. Made from quinoa & corn. Purchased at a regular grocery store (Albertsons). FIL & hubby thought it tasted the same as regular wheat pasta.

@ Sed - There's a Chinese grocery store kind of near you in Middletown on 35 my mother goes to once in awhile to shop. They'll have all the soba (buckwheat) noodles you want! It's connected to a very, VERY good Chinese restaurant called the Crown Palace as well. The Dim Sum is just as good as NYC Dim Sum in my opinion.

Speaking of pasta. My boys are huge pasta lovers, me, not so much, never was. I'm more of a potatoes kind of girl. Anyway, I found something interesting, wonder how many here heard of it, got it in the Chinese supermarket:

Buckwheat pasta.

SVC - Kind - Easiest way for me to cut was what SVC said, skip the bread, pasta and potato at every chance. Easy way to knock out some bad stuff without even trying.

I have to deal with this every month. Living in a hotel room or base billeting for 4-7 days. Lucky if I have a fridge & microwave. Here are some of the tricks I use:

If you are stuck eating out, make choices as if you were eating at home. Refuse the bread basket. Start with a salad (or get a salad with protein as your entree). Look at the appetizers in your nicer restauarnts - many times they are mini-versions of entrees. Split an entree & ask for extra portions veggies (did that last night at Outback - plain steamed green beans instead of the potato, refused the bread, savored the lamb).

Fresh whole fruits & cheese sticks at the local grocery store aren't going to go to waste, make them your snacks. Put a few yogurts in the fridge for breakfast. I also have some dried fruit for a sweet dessert. Tonight i got a half roasted chicken from the grocery store, shelf stable microwave brown rice bag, veggies to steam in the microwave. Fresh strawberries later.

I have a couple of Crossfit gyms both about 15 min away where I can WOD. Or just go for a jog on base. There are lots of stuff you can do in your home (body weight WODs) like squats, pushups, situps. Hard part for me is when the weather is bad, or my work schedule is messed up (going to night shift starting tomorrow).

Kind are you only using the scale to judge your fitness level? Honestly anytime you build more muscle you might be losing inches because muscle takes up less space but not weight. When I went on a huge workout blitz last year I didn't lose a pound but I lost inches pretty much everywhere but my breasts and went down 2 sizes in pants.

BTW - Thanks SED and LVC for the sound advice. I stayed home, went to bed early and feel much better today!

KIND - Get rid of that dang scale! From what you indicate, you're doing what you need to do to get fit. You'll be fine, keep your good choices in mind, do your walking, do the Yoga, etc. It'll be good!

Just for comparison - I used to watch the scale daily. I always worried about what I ate and did little, if any, exercise (you've got me beat there already).

If I was in "diet" mode, I used to be able to lose 20-25 pounds no problem over a 6-8 month period, but then I'd gain it back because I'd get off the "diet". Not healthy at all.

Fast forward to now. 7 months of Weight and Cardio training (Crossfit) and better eating habits (note: not a diet by any means, just making better choices and smaller portions). Guess what? in 7 months I've only lost 6 pounds...OMG only 6 pounds!? Call the diet police, he's not losing any weight!! Arghhhhh.

But on the other hand, I've lost 6+ inches in my waist, my arms and legs are the most defined they've been, ever. I feel better, I look better and I will continue this path. My BP is almost back to normal too. I'm more FIT.

It took me this lesson to get away from the scale. I only get on one now when I see my Doc for regular checkups.

You'll do fine, don't worry, be happy and fit!

Kind listen to me, your fear is normal :). Almost every person that I helped achieve their goals, I deliberately *set free* (as we referred to it) for four weeks, sometimes six. To teach them how to adjust to a life without a trainer who will train them and give them nutritional advice (though I tried not to, because trainers should train, they're not nutritionists). I've prepped them with lots of tips for activities.

You should like you understand what you need to do. Stop stressing, when you stress you develop cortisol which prevents you from losing weight :). Relax babe, whenever you feel this stress and anxiety of not having a trainer around, take a deep breath and tell yourself, I will do what I was taught to do, instead of a treadmill I'll walk, I will take yoga, which is a lot of fun and so good for you, I will make new friends in Yoga from whom I'll bounce healthy ideas, etc... you get the drift!

Stop stressing the pounds will start melting! :)
