Actual dieting on a gluten-free "diet"

My Times-Union column this month is on actual dieting while on a gluten-free "diet." Most people gain weight on a gluten-free diet and I figure it's time for me to try to lose the 10 pounds I've gained in the last four years.

As part of the column, I asked Ginny Nehring of Native Sun if she could suggest some products in the store that may help us lose weight, or are at least less fattening than some of the gluten-free foods we eat.

Ginny provided a comprehensive list that was way too long for my newspaper column, so I instead decided to post the list here. I have to admit I have tried very few of these, but hopefully you can find things you like:

Julian Bakery:  Paleo Wrap, Paleo Breads (two varieties of bread)

Miracle Noodles

Nature's Hollow Sugar Free Preserves

Hilary's Dressings (very low fat, very clean ingredients)

Bragg's Organic Braggberry No Fat Dressing and Marinade

Phoney Baloney Coconut Bacon (actually tastes like bacon but made with coconut--no saturated fat so a good replacement for dieters)

Applegate Chicken/Turkey Sausage (not really diet but if people are eating sausage, this is a very low fat and delicious replacement)

Amy's Light & Lean Frozen Entrees:  Mattar Paneer, Roasted Polenta w/Swiss Chard, Black
Bean & Cheese Enchilada, Soft Taco Fiesta

Sea Tangle Kelp Noodles

Sea Tangle Mixed Sea Vegetables

Virgil's Zero Root Beer, Zero Cream Soda, Zero Black Cherry

Zevia Sodas, all varieties

Popcorn Indiana Fit Popcorn  (40 calories per serving--I believe)

NutiLight Sugar Free Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread

Jennie's Sugar Free Macaroons

The Paleo Diet Bar


SweetLeaf Stevia Sweeteners

Xylo Sweet Sweetener

The Ultimate Sweetener Birch Sugar

CocoPolo Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Bars

Lily's Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips

Spry Mints/Gum

Unsweetened Rice Milks, Almond Milks, Cashew Milks, Coconut Milks by various brands (Pacific, Imagine Foods/Taste the Dream, SoDelicious)

Dr. Bronner's Coconut Oil (may help break down bad fat)

Artisana Coconut Oil (may help break down bad fat)

Tierra Farms packaged raw nuts, seeds and dried fruits* moderation but would curb appetite/blood sugar spikes
