  1. Celebrities With Celiac?

    Emma Rossum and Elizabeth Hasselbeck. I think there are a few others as well.
  2. I buy a lot of frozen vegetables, frozen fruits, and canned beans or gluten free soup just to make it easy. Then, I'll buy some fresh vegetables and Whole Foods sells gluten-free deli meat. You can also buy pre-packaged gluten-free oats (Bob's Red Mill), which make a quick and easy breakfast.
  3. Meals On The Go

    When I go to class, I usually grab a gluten free protein bar and an apple. They have these really good gluten free bars at Whole is called an Organic Food Bar in the "Vegan" flavor. It's organic, gluten free, raw food bar. It's basically almond butter, dates, raisin, and a few other things. Unfortunately, there are not many other options. Unless you cut up your own vegetables and bring it in a lunch box to keep it cool.
  4. Low Temperature

    Hi there, a low thyroid (Hypothyroidism) can cause constipation and low body temperature. Celiac and thyroid problems often go hand in hand. So, it is good you are getting both your thyroid and your adrenal glands tested. Although, if your thyroid was low, it would not cause you to lose weight, like you mentioned, but will cause fatigue, constipation, low body temperature, feeling of being cold all the time, etc. Best of luck!
  5. For me, I cannot tolerate eggs, corn, citrus, and especially chocolate from the list you named above. And I know people who cannot tolerate nuts. It is best to try the elimination diet. It is a pain to do, but really the only way to tell, because you know your body best and you know when something you're ingesting is making you feel bad. Try to eliminate one thing at a time for a few days. You can add it back after a few days and see if it causes problems again. In the meantime, read all the labels on all the products your ingesting and make sure they do not say "Made on equipment that also manufactures wheat, soy, peanuts, etc." Best of luck!
