  1. Hi, my name is Danielle and I live in Brazil. I was officially diagnosed last week but have been gluten free for about 3 months now. I'm kind of new to all of this and would really appreciate some help. I have accidentally screwed up and eaten gluten a couple of times already and just feel very discouraged at times. Feel free to contact me! I could really use someone to talk to.
  2. I wasn't even considering asking Lufthansa if they offer gluten free meals. I flew Iberia once and requested a gluten free meal in advance. When I got on the plane they brought me a plate of regular pasta. Needless to say, I didn't eat it. Thanks for the ideas in terms of dried fruit and nuts and crackers. I will definitely try to make myself some snack packs before leaving. I have never seen or heard of toaster bags...what are those?
  3. Hi, I'm from Uruguay but I'm living in Sao Paulo, Brazil and was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. I know that in Brazil they are kind of lenient with what can be labeled gluten free and I have already gotten sick a few times from things that turned out to be "mostly gluten free." Do any of you live in Brazil and if so do you have any tips for me?
  4. Hey Everyone, My question is kind of broken up into two main parts: the plane ride there and what to do afterwards. Next week, I am flying Lufthansa to Frankfurt, Germany. From where I am it is a ten hour flight and I really don't look forward to the prospect of not eating at all for 10+ hours. With that said, I'm not sure that Lufthansa offers gluten free meals (even upon request in advance). Any suggestions as to what I should do in terms of snacks? I can't bring fresh fruit or anything because of customs... Also, once I get into Germany, I will be going to Bremen. Any experience with trying to eat gluten free there? I am considering going to college there next year so I kind of wanted to know what my experience would be like in terms of food in Bremen and Germany in general. Thanks
  5. Hi, Okay, I did spend quite a bit of time in Barcelona a few years ago but this was before I was diagnosed with Celiac. From what I remember, I ate mostly tapas and things like that. While they do eat a lot of bread, they also make a lot of dishes with rice or seafood which are probably safe. Also, at some of the larger restaurants there were waiters or managers who spoke English and it was very common to see menus in English. I'm sure you could talk to a manager about your allergy. Best of luck!
  6. I was recently self-diagnosed by elimination with a gluten intolerance and am waiting for the results from my blood tests for celiac. I have been gluten free for almost a month now and have lost a lot of weight very quickly (12 pounds to be exact). Is it normal to lose so much weight in the beginning of switching to a gluten free diet?
