@sharonnoickle, have you ever tried going vegan? It makes you feel amazing and lose weight as long as you eat a variety of foods. Eggs, gluten and milk are bad for you anyway but it sucks that you're allergic to beans too =/ There are lots of good sites devoted to losing weight on a vegan diet and I promise, you will feel better within the first week. You have so much more energy and you just feel healthier without all those animal products weighing you down. Hope that helps.
