Gluten Challenge

Days Seven And Eight

Posted by Porcelina, 24 October 2013 - - - - - - · 583 views

Well, those two days were almost the same. Nagging headache, starting to feel nausea after eating gluten, running to the bathroom and very tired by 8 pm. On day eight (yesterday), I made a lasagna and black forest cake for my boyfriends birthday. Of course I had some and it was all very delicious, but my guts were just rolling still three hours after and...

Day Six

Posted by Porcelina, 21 October 2013 - - - - - - · 623 views

Starting to get slight stomach cramps after meals now. As of this moment, my stomach is making gurgling noises even though dinner was gluten free. I'm feeling slightly bloated and gassy now and I've actually gained 5 lbs in the 6 days of starting this, and yet I'm not eating my full days caloric needs (I eat around 1800 a day).

I've also had a niggling o...

Day Five

Posted by Porcelina, 21 October 2013 - - - - - - · 545 views

Had 2 pieces of toast for breakfast and felt fine. Had a bagel and cream cheese with tomato soup for lunch, started to feel a little fatigued and gassy. Dinner was fairly low in gluten, just had a touch of bbq sauce that had soy sauce in it and then I decided to have a beer. As soon as it was finished, I developed a migraine and extreme fatigue. I was re...

Day Four

Still kind of tired today, but not as bad. My back has residual pain after being as sore as it was, but not enough to warrant advil or ruin my sleep.

I noticed last night when I woke up at some point, that my left nostril was plugged. I've never experienced that before other than when having a cold. I also had a mild headache today after eating an apple...

Day Three

Fatigued. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tired. My eyelids droop as I write this.

On an interesting note about how another way gluten may bother me, I saw my chiropractor on Wednesday for an adjustment. I see her once in a blue moon. It seems that as soon as a long weekend comes, my back likes to tweak out (not twirk out thank goodness!).

Anyways, she does a great...

Day Two

Posted by Porcelina, 17 October 2013 - - - - - - · 534 views

So here I am on day two. No fatigue or migraines surprisingly. I'm wondering if they have passed as I got those on the weekend when I was accidentally glutenized. Today was more like bloat and making a few mad dashes to the washroom. By the end of the day, my tongue had swollen as I can actually see my teeth imprints on the side of my tongue. Is that eve...

Day One

Posted by Porcelina, 16 October 2013 - - - - - - · 762 views

So after a year and a half of being part time gluten free (avoided the obvious sources, but continued with sauces, malt vinegars and beers) I have decided that I want to be tested for celiac.
I kept a food journal and after playing around with food eliminations, I discovered that I have fructose/fructan malasorption. So I avoided apples, wheat, onions an...
