Thanks so much for your kind comments. My Readers are making my day today (it was a pretty blue one before I got all your kind messages). From what you say, you either have a wheat intolerance or allergy (consider having your dr check this out with some tests as the symptoms can get worse with repeated exposure). High-carb foods with a low-GI which do not contain wheat are alas not plentiful, but here is a list: rye breads (experiment which ones you can eat - perhaps rye bread with 30% wheat will still agree with you, otherwise stick to 100% rye) and rye crackers; brown rice; pasta made from Durum wheat (not wholewheat by the way as this may make your symptoms worse); sweet potatoes (rich in dietary fibre with a low-GI); other vegetables and fruit. Because you have this problem with wheat and many standard 'diet' foods are not suitable for you, you can reduce your energy intake by having low- or fat-free versions of foods that agree with you thus saving on energy intake (you save 37 kJ for every 1 gram of fat you don't eat). Use fat-free yoghurt, cottage cheese, milk and lean meat, fish and eggs together with your non-wheat carbs, fruits and veggies. Then do cardio exercises to use up energy and also targeted exercises for those hips and buttocks (thigh rolls, etc). Fitness Doc will be able to give you some tips on exercises that target the hips and bottom.
Good luck with the programme
