I have just quit Weightwatchers. I had previously led a fairly healthy diet, and active in the form of 7-8hours of Zumba a week, and home work outs too. I currently weigh 218lbs (I think that's right) - and on weight watchers put on weight continuously for 5weeks, inspite of following them rigidly. I'm gutted, especially as I struggled so badly with the lack of protein in the WW diet. With the weight gain, my arthritis in my ankles has flared up terribly, and I have just managed to start up Zumba again, 2 hours a week, but I walk briskly for an hour every day to try to stay mobile.
Anyway - so my physiotherapist told me about the SBD - and I've looked at it - but I still have issues. I am very allergic to a lot of vegetables, mostly beans,, and a lot of Legumes (including soya). I am also allergic to Artificial sweetners. I have digestive problems that means I don't have any added oils or butter like spreads too. Healthy bunny me, eh!?! lol.
Anyway - so my question is - is it possible for a London, UK person to do this diet, on an extremely low income, when faced with so many allergies? How can I get the nutrients that one would ordinarily get from the beans and legumes?
