I'm happy FOR YOU! I think everyone, including you should go by the way of GLUTEN FREE; if it's so bad that it's destroying 1 out of 133 people it can't be good anyway, and it causes bloating and all that stuff. Perhaps people aren't fat as they get older just hiding symptoms of Celiacs.
Eat- get a little bigger eat,- get a little bigger.
It's difficult to go all Gluten Free at first, maybe easier if you don't have the deeply rooted symptoms making your life miserable as it does ours, but perhaps in the long run it's better for everyone's system.
Dr Hulda Clark stated not to eat BROWN RICE years ago, perhaps it is just the Best thing to do. So many people are in denial, "Oh I feel fine." Truth is many don't like to or are embarrassed to tell the truth even to their personal doctors.
Good for you and your baby. I also read that doctors feel when parents introduce the babies on biscuits, crackers and similar first foods, they are introducing them to Celiac's symptoms
**Possibilities** Thanks Mah for all the Graham Crackers!
A comprehensive list of foods to avoid may be viewed on the internet at:
Looking for gluten free products may not prove an easy task, it is recommended to read labels carefully. It is also advised to contact the manufacturers as gluten may represent such a tiny percentage that it may not appear on their ingredient list. Manufacturers also change the ingredients in their products from time to time.
Gluten is the protein in wheat, barley, rye, oats and their derivatives: malt, grain starches, hydrolysed vegetable/plant proteins, textured vegetable proteins, grain vinegar, grain alcohol, malt, modified food starch, caramel, maltodextrin, soy sauce, flavourings and the binders found in medication. Since the texture of gluten is elastic it also appears in many processed foods as well as in the gum substance on envelopes.
