Consolidation food question

Post  Linda on Sat Jul 03, 2010 11:17 am

It will be some time until I'm on consolidation but am writing this question ahead of time. I have two other still to be answered questions in this part of the forum so perhaps it takes time to get an answer.

In Consolidation we get to eat 2 slices of bread a day. I won't be eating the bread because my body hates wheat. It makes me feel ill and bloated. I'll be sticking to wheat free breads I've discovered on this diet which are already allowed in small amounts. Also, there is pasta, etc, added in. I won't be able to eat that either. What can I substitute to go back onto normal eating at that stage? Are potatoes, corn and peas added in by then, or can I choose them instead of the wheat products?

I am going to take a stab at this question. This is my own opinion, it has nothing to do with anything I have read about the Dukan Diet.

I looked on the glycemic index of wholegrain bread and it is 51.

Potatoes are 111, corn is 78 and peas are 46.

The peas look good, they are low on the index. I would limit the amount of corn and potatoes because they are higher.

Some other lower glycemic foods that you might want to use twice a day instead are:

Long grained rice, 50
Pearled Barley, 22
Sweet Potatoes, 48
Yam, 35
Brown rice, 50
Rolled oats, 51
Chapattis made with barley instead of flour, 37
Gluten free pasta, 54
Wheatless bread - find one you like and google to make sure it has a low GI.

Remember that potatoes and corn can be eaten at your reward meal so they are not gone forever.
