My Successful Diet
0

5 posts in this topic

I just thought I would post my successful diet in hopes that it may help someone else in some way.  I was diagnosed with Celiac one year ago and have tried several diets since.  I eventually created one diet that worked best for me and my recovery.  I am slowly, but surely, seeing small improvements every week.  I originally started a diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, meats, probiotics, and digestive enzymes.  That diet was insufficient, although it did allow my body to begin recovery and prepare for the next step.  The next step was my own diet that I made after MUCH trial and error...

 

Before I eat any rice or potatoes, I take a digestive enzyme (digest platinum by Now Foods).  I also take a digestive enzyme with anything I eat after 6pm.  I don't eat anything after 8:30pm and I go to bed at 11pm.  I've learned it is very important to allow yourself to digest all food before going to bed so you can have the most rejuvenating sleep possible.

 

Breakfast:

Scrambled eggs

White rice (I use Minute Instant Rice)

 

Time between breakfast and dinner:

White Potato

Assorted Fruits

Assorted Vegetables (raw or pureed)

Honey Flavored Lactose Free Yogurt (I use Green Valley Yogurt)

White Rice

Roasted Cashews (I get mine from nuts.com)

 

Dinner and up to 8:30pm:

Some kind of meat

Assorted Fruits

Assorted Vegetables

White Rice

Roasted Cashews

 

 

I realize there are many more specifics to every diet, although these are the building blocks to mine that have allowed for easy digestion and proper nutrition.

I'm glad you are seeing some improvement with your diet, Chris.  Sometimes you have to strip it down to the basics to feel better but basic food is good food.

I agree with the digestive enzymes and I still use them after 8 years gluten-free.  They help tremendously, especially with proteins and fats. However, I cannot go that long before bed without eating something but I have healed well and have no problems.  It does get better and easier as time goes on and you'll be able to add foods back in and resume your normal eating once healed. It'll just be gluten free normal.

 

Glad to see you have discovered Nuts.com. Excellent site and it's where many of us buy all of our nuts and dried fruits. I think their stuff is the best around.

 

I wish you continued better health!

Hmm, maybe a stupid question, but what do you mean by digestive enzymes? Is that a pill or something?

Basically yes.  It is a supplement that helps provide enzymes to breakdown the foods you eat.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
