Hello all,
First time poster.i have been diagnosed celiac since January 2012..My one year endoscopy showed villi in partial remission ,but have along way to go.I am having trouble with complex carbs the only ccs I can handle without bad gas and bloating is sweet potatoes and regular potatoes.I am needing other options for my glycogen storage.I am worried about the damage of gluten-free grains since it causes this reaction .I know it's not causing villous atrophy ,but will it set my intestinal healing backwards if I eat these grains .I am obviously fatiguing due to the lack of good complex carbs.IS it also unhealthy to only eat nightshades as my source of carbs as glycogen? Thank you very much for your time.

I have luck with adding blanched vegetables to nut or coconut water based smoothies. Zero to very little fruit. You may try adding bean powder or cooked beans to smoothies? Or, make bean cakes? Lots of recipes out there.

What about squash/pumpkin? I could see both in smoothies or a "pattie". I use leftover squash to make a pan fried pattie to lay fried eggs on...I eat that before a workout.

There are gluten free energy bars, the ones I've had so far are Perfectly Simple (by ZonePerfect), Pure organic, ThinkThin, ProBar and ProMax.

I haven't conducted an extensive study into every flavor, you should verify each one individually by label and by eating only one kind a time to see your actual reaction.

 

Have you really tried all the carbs? There are quite a few of them... Quinoa, amaranth, teff, oats (has to be certified gluten-free though, not just any oats), sorghum, tapioca, corn, beans, legumes, and plain old rice.

You will probably have to prepare it all yourself since restaurants in general can’t be trusted. I’ve gotten quite decent at making my own bread out of these things, most of which I never heard of before becoming gluten intolerant.

I am a silent celiac .I don't know when I'm being glutened,however my joints seem to ache when I do get glutened.I have reactions to any grains especially quinoa.I am not sure if I should still eat it knowing its gluten free and a great source of complex carbs or is it hurting me to eat.I am still in recovery mode.Will it retard my healing to eat it ?

Not all reactions are to gluten.  Some of us have additional intolerances.  I cannot eat quinoa, nor millet or amaranth.  However, I handle sorghum, buckwheat and teff perfectly well.  You will have to identify your own intolerances.  It makes no sense to eat something that makes your joints ache.

Quinoa does need to be washed, it has a natural pesticide which will cause you some reaction if not washed properly. You might be racting to that and not the grain itself.

Hello all,
First time poster.i have been diagnosed celiac since January 2012..My one year endoscopy showed villi in partial remission ,but have along way to go.I am having trouble with complex carbs the only ccs I can handle without bad gas and bloating is sweet potatoes and regular potatoes.I am needing other options for my glycogen storage.I am worried about the damage of gluten-free grains since it causes this reaction .I know it's not causing villous atrophy ,but will it set my intestinal healing backwards if I eat these grains .I am obviously fatiguing due to the lack of good complex carbs.IS it also unhealthy to only eat nightshades as my source of carbs as glycogen? Thank you very much for your time.

If you are fatiguing due to the lack of good complex carbs try upping your fat intake . Save your sweet potatoes for post workout and try increasing your consumption of good fats,,,, nuts and seeds .

While the bodys preference may be  complex carbs it will utilize the fats in the same way .

Sweet potatoes are not a nightshade. Regular potatoes are a night shade and can be  highly inflammatory .

Hmm.. You should try a low carb/high fat diet. The first few weeks are tough, but after that you get continuous energy and no need for carbs! For body builders though, they have a "refeed" day, where you eat low fat and high carb to restore your glycogen stores... Just a suggestion, if you can't find much carby things to eat. Ohh, and this diet is also amazing for fat loss! It's actually the diet that helped me realize my gluten intolerance!

I'll try upping my fat intake as well.  If was feeling SO sluggish at the gym for awhile...upped my carb intake and my energy was great...however, my body hates carbs in all other ways (my skin breaks out in seborrhea, I bloat like crazy, get headaches, standard candida reaction stuff).  Doing a massive grocery shopping trip followed by cooking this weekend - guess I'll be stocking up on avocados and almond butter as well.  Desperately need to find the right balance - I hate those gym days where your muscles have the potential to do so much more than your energy stores will allow
