Definitely go get your thyroid levels checked. It is very common to go HYPER-thyroid before the thyroid decreases function to hypo. That could explain why you lost so much weight before, even though you were trying. Thyroid issues are common for people with gluten issues as well!
Currently trying to lose 10 pounds for my reunion in September, but when that isn't an issue:
gluten-free Texas sheet cake with ice cream (served WARM)
Apple crisp with ice cream (again served warm)
gluten-free Peanutbutter cookies
Vans gluten-free Waffles with PBJ
Apple Martini's (not food, but a good indulgence)
Nut Thins with cheese or tuna YUMMO
Mine depends on what it is. When I inhale raw flour or such, it is almost immediate. I wear a surgical mask when I am baking for my kids functions and such. But if it is a more cooked form, it can take 24 - 48 hours.
One of my faves is Amy's rice pizza with Cheese and then my husband doctors it up! Puts either sausage or hamburger on it with various veggies and then extra cheese! YUMMY I make sure he makes a normal pizza for everyone else that is just about the same to make sure my kids don't touch my pizza! LOL I like to take the extra for lunch the next day!
We also do grilled shrimp with Rice noodles, creamy sauce (which hubby makes with cream cheese, parm cheese and a little butter) and throw in a ton of veggies!
Those are good ideas for alternatives. Since I don't make them often (mainly around holidays or such) I will stick with the corn syrup, especially since it is only 1 tsp. But yes, if anyone else does the others, please let us know. I am very interested in how it would go.
