  1. So I know this is silly- even after taking nutrition classes but what types of carbs should I be eating? You mention a Vitargo drink? Could you give me more details? Sometimes I am just so over trying to find something to eat that I don't eat- so maybe a drink like that- (you said during your workout?) As for normal food to eat I am guessing like sweet potatoes- rice? I just devoured a delicious double cheeseburger and small fries from five guys YUM! Gotta stay fueled up!
  2. Do you find that when you are exercising regularly you have this crazy hunger? I have always had a pretty fast metabolism but this is getting kind of crazy. I had keto pancakes (eggs and creamcheese) for breakfast, a 6oz cup of trail mix, now just ate an Amy's gluten-free DF burrito and still hungry. been up for only 4.5 hours! I am thinking this may be a huge reason why I was having the issues I was having- also last week I started feeling like I might get a cold after I had to stop my pilates practice because I was so hungry I thought I might pass out. I try to eat most of the day but I am running out of things to eat! Any suggestions for good snacks? I love RX Bar's and drink a vegan protein/meal replacement 1-2x a day but some nights right before I got o bed I am hungry again and not sure what to eat!
  3. Hey all- just thought I would send an update. I worked out hard but not too long or too hard last week on Thursday- one hour pilates class (which isn't too strenuous to me) and then did squats and some other arm/back lifts. But i couldn't do my third set of squats because my quads were cramping up.I took my Glutamine twice that day, vegan protein and tried to eat more, I tried to avoid more than 1 drink for two days, and waited until I wasn't too sore anymore. and just did pilates reformer on friday. So I did it! I paced myself well. I missed my normal Monday pilates reformer time (sinus infection now from my last cold ) But did make it on tuesday. Today I only had 1 hour of work out time (the child watch was closing!) so I busted out bench, straight leg dead lifts, upright row, reverse lunges with military press, and then finally squats. Let's just say i went pretty hard compared to last week and got 3 sets in for everything it was great!. so now I am eating like a mad person, I didn't get any quad cramping this time so that was good. Maybe because I have been off dairy that i am absorbing stuff better who knows. But I know i have to stay on track with my supplements and eating and not drinking.. much
  4. First of all- who are these a-holes making fun of you? It's making me heated just thinking about it. Coworkers? If you don't like your job much I suggest taking a diarrhea sh*t in a bag and leaving it on their desk. Then see how hard they laugh. (sorry I have quite an interesting sense of humor/need to make people realize how not funny their jokes are). I haven't had a whole lot of people who poke fun at me, I get the annoying "oh! That must be why you are so skinny- you are SO lucky!" Even one of my very close friends says that to me sometimes- that she wishes she wouldn't absorb all the nutrients in her food so she could lose wait. I'm sorry WTF did you just say to me?! Seriously? IF you are that desperate to lose weight maybe TRY to do something about it instead of complain to me and wish you had some effed disease. Phew- tangent. Um. This might be against what others think or recommend. But I want to share so maybe you feel less overwhelmed. I didn't worry about other cross reactive foods or even think about it until later on. And with some worries about this and that (coffee mostly) I stopped thinking about it and stopped googling it. There are enough things for me to worry about just avoiding gluten. And I still drink coffee. Dairy has only recently become a (noticeable) issue after 3 years gluten free. The kissing thing- I don't worry about either. Maybe because I have been with the same guy for 11 years but we don't do a whole lot of hard make out sessions right after dinner. LOL. I don't know how sensitive you are- I don't know if you even know how sensitive you are. It takes a long time to really figure this whole thing out. And then once you get it figured out- something changes (just like parenting small children!) I think with the other foods issue, because you are feeling so depressed- I would just worry about the gluten part for now (after you get through this nightmare of eating it again). Do you have to have the diagnosis? Is it really worth it in the end? I know having the official diagnosis can make it easier to see necessary specialists and get tests done- when you stay in the hospital they try to feed you the right food. But. I don't know. Hard for me to say because my dr went about things a little differently and gave me a diagnosis just based on my symptoms being better without gluten and having a genetic test that was positive. After reading what you are going through I would bail in a heartbeat- eating that gluten for that long and still working and all that is a lot. And it will make the depression you are already going through seemingly worse. I am in no position to suggest what you should do in this instance but just a thought I wanted to share. Anywho- hang in there. Hire a hit man perhaps to take out these evil people. or leave flaming poop bags on their porch (so you can keep your job )
  5. Wow! Thanks you guys for your responses! I am typically not getting glutened- I try very hard to eat things that don't make me sick. I got hit once this summer in July and then once about a month or so ago which may be why I got that stupid hand foot mouth- my immune system must have been down (plus I just travelled and day drank for a wedding too-definitely not helping) I am starting to think other than those two little slips that I may be ingesting very small amounts that don't cause a big reaction because I feed my 16 month old gluten noodles and pretzels sometimes. I decided that he should eat gluten-free bread because if my hubs isn't eating bread why the hell am I going to buy all that bread! Cristina I agree I think it is a balance with food- sometimes I just get so lazy trying to figure out what to eat that I just don't eat so yes having healthy filling snacks around all the time is incredibly necessary for me. I just get so excited when I am at the gym and I was doing well- got up to squatting 115 with encouragement from my weight lifting husband. IT felt great! and my butt was starting to look pretty good too I am going to try a short workout like you suggested- just do some legs and lighter squats today- I don't really do cardio other than to warm up because I usually keep my heart rate up as I am lifting. (and i go for walks with the stroller) and I am thin anyways so I am not trying to lose weight. The nice thing about being in my pilates program is that I have access to use a reformer which is a nice way to workout that isn't super strenuous- so I do recommend Pilates to anyone who is looking for a great low impact workout that builds muscle. It is so hard to find info about exercising but maintaining weight! Especially because most people don't really get all of the RANDOM things that happen to our bodies being celiac. I have to really listen to my body all the time. Going to take some cough syrup and get ready for my workout (this cold has to give up at some point!!) Thanks again for all your responses- I really need to get more active on here, so nice to feel supported and understood
  6. I was only tested for antibodies once, negative. My weird diagnosis is based on symptoms and a gene test by my doctor. If I were to ask for that test what do I need to ask for specifically? I think maybe I am getting CC'd and that might have made me more sensitive to dairy? at least I hope its not forever. Thanks!
  7. Hi all, I am an exercise enthusiast and have been since high school (currently 31-female) diagnosed with celiac 3 yrs ago and find that I am very sensitive to working out too much. I would go to the gym every day if I knew I would feel good, but eventually I seem to either not eat enough or not the right things- get a bout of diarrhea (glutened or otherwise- I am now testing no dairy) and just get sore muscles-spasms, and super run down. The latest incidence of this I ended up with hand, foot and mouth (a virus usually only young kids get) and then a week after that a REALLY bad cold. So let's just say I haven't been hitting the gym! This might make me sounds like a meat head or gym rat but I'm really not, i used to work out more often than i do now, however I am currently in a pilates teacher training so i need to be more active than I have been in the last couple years. I am looking for feedback on any supplements- diet - lifestyle suggestions on how to avoid getting so run down. To be able to keep working out and pushing myself to reach new goals not to just end up sick in bed. I got a vegan meal replacement/protein powder that i have usually once a day with a banana and some coconut milk, usually take my prenatal vitamins still (if i have them why not? my boy is 16 months LOL), calcium magnesium, trying to take glutamine once a day, and occasionally when I remember some probiotics and gummy vitamin C/D. I am not vegan- just no gluten and for now no dairy. Any other suggestions?! -lj
  8. Thanks! I actually looked into a few recipes online- with the addition of a fair amount of mayo i hope its just as good
  9. Good luck! I just went to my regular doctor who now suggests I stop eating dairy and I about died. But whatever. After crying about it a lot and realizing after eating it that it may be the culprit for me spending a lot of time in the bathroom.. I move onward. At least we all have each other. Bur ur dear god can someone suggest a gluten free dairy free ranch salad dressing option?!?! I love ranch 😩
  10. I feel your pain- as do most of us. I have been gluten-free for 4 years and still have lots of pity parties. But its more than that its just down right depressing like you stated in your original post. And I am sad af. Sad that my body is betraying itself. All I can say is DON'T read too far into all the celiac crazy on the internet. It is effing scary. I was just on the SCD website the other day like what is this?! About makeup- I am a chick and I have never been big on lipstick so don't fret too much unless you have a fetish for gals with lipstick and sadly though i am married my husband isn't entirely understanding. Yes he is supportive and yes he checks labels, but i still have to double check. And he is frustrated by my situation which doesn't make me feel much better. You can only do what YOU as a person can take on right now. So take a deep breath- keep exercising (totally get that it keeps me sane!) I got a decent vegan (i am not vegetarian) meal supplement shake on amazon the other day and its pretty good! makes me feel less.... empty- hungry- unfulfilled. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FYD5MVA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And again try to not google too much. Honestly this website has been the best info I have found out there because its REAL PEOPLE. Not some stupid sales pitch. I literally lost it on a comments section of a "celiac diagnosis is a blessing in disguise" blog post. haha! it felt SOO good. Anyways hang in there and YES to microwave rice it is delicious and way better than any i have tried to cook OH I forgot to say about gluten free foods- I recently tried cutting most of them out aside from lke once a week because i felt a little off if i ate TOO much in a week. I am now slowly reintroducing a slice of bread here and some noodles there because my body craves it so much and i feel like i am starving all the time. And so far i'm ok. I think the main thing is to just not eat gluten free products as often as you would have eaten regular products. For example: cereal for breakfast, sandwich with 2 slices bread for lunch, crackers and cheese for snack, burrito with flour tortilla for dinner. etc.. does that make sense? I seem to have zero issues with corn tortilla chips or corn tortillas- i only count like gluten free bread and crackers/noodles as those crappy super processed foods.

  12. First, I want to say thanks to the veterans of this site who read through thousands of posts from people like me and take the time to respond you have been there for me in rough times before and I'm bummed that I am back with confusion! I have been on a gluten free diet for 4 years and I occasionally have these rapid gastric dumping issues where I eat a meal and then within 30 minutes I am running to the bathroom for an urgent diarrhea evacuation (that's basically vomit because its all the food i just ate completely undigested). I have had no stomach surgeries or gastric bypass- none of that. I also off and on have phases where i am nauseous and nothing sounds good. My metabolism has always been high but i get so frustrated trying to find something that 1. is gluten free, 2. sounds appetizing enough to eat and 3. is semi healthy! I crave stuff like pizza and nachos. Anyways- sometimes just 30-60 minutes after eating i am hungry again! Sick of eating!!! I saw my doctor yesterday and she wants me to try dairy free for 30 days. I die. I eat dairy all the time- greek full fat yogurt and cheese are a staple in my diet for protein and calcium- I don't drink much milk so I don't see how if I eat dairy every day this causes intermittent dumping? I am depressed just thinking about doing DF and gluten-free (sorry to those who already do it I admire your strength) i am having a hard enough time just being gluten-free. SOOO my question is from y'all's experience: Is this gastric dumping/urgent evacuation caused by cross contamination of gluten? ( I have a 16 month old that eats gluten so this may be increasing my exposure) Or do you think this could really be lactose intolerance? Also my immune system has been shit this fall and I already had hand foot mouth and now a KILLER cold. That is all- thanks for any input!! -lj
  13. I got hit on thanksgiving too and it has been a little over a year since my last glutening. I think mostly I made it this long because I was less sensitive while pregnant, I had no stomach issues the whole time- it was amazing. I think what got me was some French onion dip oddly enough, I didn't confirm how it was made and assuming a packet with barley or something stupid in it, but damn it was good. Reading your post was comforting, glad I'm not the only one. I puked that night had the shakes and chills and felt hungover for 2 days. What's annoying is that I am still crazy bloated after about 10 am onward(feel like I am struggling to digest everything) and my muscle issues. All the awful knots I had a year ago are back in my neck and shoulders. I'm talking rock hard huge knots that even an intense deep tissue massage hasn't phased. Does anyone else have that???? I'm afraid I'm back into the vicious inflammation cycle.
  14. My favorite perk: I get my own damn pizza and NO you absolutely CANNOT have a piece- because it cost $80. I also like the bringing my own food but for some work things its kind of a pain slash i feel like i look like a weirdo. Like i really care. I am weird!
