But I would like to know what you ARE using. Of course it has to be gluten free, and the less chemicals and more natural the better! Thanks in advance!!!

snifter added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithCorn Contains Gluten? Huh?OK so I'm not trying to get in a arguement about corn. But on my news feed someone made a comment "did you know corn contains gluten"
OK I know there seems to be all kinds of issues with corn and I try to avoid it as much as possible. I know it hardly provides any nutritional value. And I do believe that the corn seed was messed up in the 90's and now has a very negative effect.
But I have never heard that it contains gluten. What do you think this person meant? Cross contamination?

snifter added a topic in Gluten-Free Diet & Weight IssuesI Need Help Gaining Weight!Hi! Thank you so much in advance! Here's part of my story!
Always been very thin and tall, 5 11 124lbs
I could always eat whatever I wanted and never gained weight. Junk food and restaurants were my favorite! I didn't know how to cook.
Got pregnant and gain 60lbs!! I was so proud!!! Ate a TON of food to accomplish this!!
Then I had my beautiful baby! Life was grand!!
Then I started having some problems. Was losing all my baby weight fast!! But I wasn't exercising, was eating crap food.
Then I went in complaining about a a pain in my side, my doctor suspected my gall bladder. Did some tests and it's only functioning at 8% but doesn't need to be removed. I guess?
He wanted to check for ulcers in my stomach, put a camera down there and didn't find ulcers but found a "mass" , took a biopsy, said it wasn't cancer but is 80% sure I have celiac. It didn't show up in my blood.
So I've been gluten free since Oct 2010 but I'm still losing a bit, I'm down to 118! Now granted I have been walking now with my baby and I am way more busy than I used to be.
Could I just be burning off the calories I intake? Because I need to gain not lose! I feel like I'm wasting away!
I started eating omelets with vegetables and cheese every morning. I love cheese!! I thought the protein was making me feel better.
well then it came back that I had high cholesterol and high triglycerides! I'm 33!!! Ugh!!
OK so I switched to egg whites and less cheese and cut my omelets down to 3 a week! Walking more! I switched from margarine to real butter, but use very little.
So what can I add that is a healthy fat?
I added black beans and and avocado!
I try to avoid corn but still have some
Please help!! What's your advice
