I know carbs play a huge roll in losing weight quickly so I would not be surprised to learn she is doing this. I have no clue what the BL diet is. We saw Jackson preparing what looked like spaghetti squash after having decided on pasta for dinner. I could be wrong on that. I know their diet is not low carb; they take them to Subway. I am not even going to get into that ridiculous subject.
For years I thought this was a fad and paid no attention until I heard Mark Cuban say that the Mavericks are on a gluten free diet during the season or maybe always, that I don't know. I bought The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson. Great book! It is not a weight loss book it is a healthy eating plan. He does have a chapter on how to use this way of life for weigh loss.
Gina may have entered this competition knowing a lot about diet as most overweight people do. She could easily be eating gluten free too. And I bet she eats no salt the day before weigh in, as well.
I don't know what you mean by aftermath. I had none and after I lost weight I definately had days where a cheeseburger sucked me in. 80/20 adhereance is the way to go. It is very easy for me. I definately treat myself. This diet is nothing like Atkins.
I also have no tolerance for carbs but am finding it hard to go without. Which is why I'm not loosing weight. I'm considering glutten free but haven't made up my mind yet. Sigh.

Didn't notice the drinks - could be vitamin water or protein smoothies?
And oddly he says walk 30 minutes a day minimun and do an occasional sprint. He is not into pushing it at the gym. This is why I am in love with him.
