Interestslearning how to live healthy and happily with Celiacs, newly diagnosed 12-2009, surgery performed in 2002 revealed it doctor never told me. I want to make people more aware of this disease.
I am involved in ministry.
I am a nutritionist who knew nothing about Celiac Disease!
I too am wondering when the healing is noticed; this is 8th week and today I am looking 4 - 5 months pregnant. I have been lactose intolerant always but just diagnosed end of 2009 with Celiac. I am so discipline, I eat about 6 different foods and the next week add something else. I did not do anything wrong and bamm...I am bloated. And the scale shows 8 pound weight gain...and that won't go away. So, needless to say, I wish there was the same pattern, do this for a week, 2 weeks or 2 months and you will feel better...I am still in the waiting to heal stage.
Gluten free and lactose free...the rice protein is thin, not so filling. I used whey for years but since Celiac, I am also lactose intolerant...this is so hard as I had 2 protein shakes daily to get 5 meals a day..I mixed protein in my oatmeal..haha now that does not happen anymore. I just don't know how to eat to train...where do I start to look?
Ok, I was told rice was good, I eat white or brown rice or rice noodles, rice crackers...and I have always eating salads and steamed vegetables for 20+ years without problem for example, last nights dinner did not affect me it was steamed zucchini, mushrooms, summer squash, chicken with coconut oil served over brown rice with a side salad with omega oil and apple cider vinegar and goat cheese..enzymes before and after and no problems....but I am eating bananas because they are portable to eat, as well as grapefruits..constipation is my problem and of course malabsorption when I thought I was doing soo well..this forum is helpful and educational..thank you...
I feel exactly the same, and it also makes my emotions swing. I do not understand how I can gain 10lbs when not eating like I used to and feel worse..and this is a new lifestyle change....I feel your pain...hopefully we will learn how to deal with it together! Connie Pridgen, CNC
