Hi, I'm just starting to feel good enough to get back into the dating game but wondered how quickly do you tell someone you have celiac? I don't want to scare them off before they take a chance to get to know me.
Hi, Just a thought but if you have a library nearby maybe you could find a gluten-free cook book to get more ideas. A friend of mine who also has celiac highly recommends the Annalise Roberts cook book. Good luck!
Good advice ShayFl, I will try this. Its also hard to find gluten-free stuff thats low fat so I'm sure thats contributing too. Especially if low in fiber since fiber carrys fat out of the body. Its funny but before I had to go gluten-free/cf I knew the nutrtional guidelines to follow to stay healthy and actually did pretty well while I had the energy to work out but as my fatigue increased all the rules went out the window and I ate alot of comfort foods!! Uhg, hope I can get back on track soon so I don't feel like a blimp all summer!!
I'm gaining wt too but its different than when I use to gain wt before going gluten-free/cf. I use to gain wt all over and it was more solid but now i'm gaining more in my stomach and thighs but seems to be more puffy/bloated. My friend suggested maybe not drinking enough water. I'm going to try an increase my water consumption and see what happens. Any other sugestions??
Hi, I just experienced the internal ichy stomache when I tried to do the candidia diet but assumed it was from getting rid of the toxins but also started a digestive pill @ same time so now I'm wondering about which caused it. Need to do the diet again but since haven't been on gluten-free/cf diet very long found it very hard!!
My friend who is a Director @ the Medical Examiners Office said w/ sarcasm"come on you can eat a little, you're not THAT sick" Evidently, she is so focused on her job she can't realize even though you may look healthy on the outside you actually could be very sick!
Wow, I'm amazed @ how many people I've met w/ celiac that have these symptoms. I was diagnosed w/ TMJ(jaw clicked on left side) 6 yrs ago and my Dr wanted to do steroid injection therapy but insurance didn't cover it so didn't do this treatment. Started to have problems w/ my right hip and noticed left shoulder was lower than right. A friend of mine who is massgae therapist said my hips were out of alignment which was pulling down shoulder and jaw. She fixed it in four sessions and hadn't had any trouble until lst yr when shoulder started to bother me again. Now have been diagnosised w/ scoliosis. Wonder if people w/ celiac develop this because of nutrition deficiencies. Went to a chiroprator this time because insurance covers but now have more problems then when I started. Plan to try to alleivate symptoms w/massage again.
The Outback has an awesome gluten-free menu and so does Chicago Pizza Uno Grille, Bonefish Grille, and Carrabas. Ck out glutenfreerestaurants.com. I'm still new to this myself and had planned to eat @ a local greek restuarant this wk that has great gluten-free selections before a meeting but they were closed. Initially started to panic but went to the grocery store bought paper bowls(which I will now keep in my car), hormel grilled chicken(not only gluten-free but also preservative free) and hummus plus a bottle of water which I ate in my car. Yes, I threw half of it out but it was still cheaper than what I would have spent on lunch and I was satisfied enough to make it through to dinner. Have been told need to plan better and carry more non-perishables w/me, anyway, good luck!
