Our expert says:
From what you say, it is possible to you have a wheat allergy or sensitivity seeing that is makes you feel so poorly. Couscous which is made from wheat, is therefore out. If you are cutting out all wheat-containing foods then you will still require potato, brown rice, sweet potato, maize and maize meal to provide some carbs in your diet otherwise you may find that you lack energy to keep going during the day. The general rule of eating 5-a-day of fruit and vegetables can also be applied when you are slimming. Select at least 3 vegetables and 2 fruits a day. Add some daily activity such as brisk walking to your programme to encourage weightloss.
