we just found out my 17 year old has additional intolerances to wheat, oats, and nuts. She has had intolerances to cow's milk, goat's milk, soy, potatoes since she was five. She has not been feeling well for awhile but I attributed to her busy schedule and her dancing seven days a week. We just found out last week. Does any one have any suggestions what I could give her to fill her up. She is always hungry. Even after she eats. Will this eventually go away once she gets used to the new diet? I could really use some help. Thanks from a mother in need of helping a hungry kid. My daughter is only 102lbs. now and I don't want her to lose a lot of weight. Thanks.

i am confused. She has celiac? So she shouldn't be eating wheat and oats anyway right? How long has she been diagnosed?

Allison, as Merika says you don't mention anything about gluten.

Apart from all the gluten grains - I have allergy/intolerance to rice, nuts, seeds, chocolate, sucrose, potatoes and alcohol. This makes my diet very limited.

Like your daughter, I was hungry all the time for months. This has eased a little but I still eat every 3 hours. Not being able to eat rice or potatoes makes it very difficult to eat filling foods.

I strongly recommend you try millet, polenta and quinoa. The quinoa I especially like. I use all of these as my carbohydrate to replace rice and potatoes. Polenta and millet make really nice porridge.

Bananas are a Godsend to me. Too much fruit bothers me but I can eat bananas till they are coming out my ears. :lol: Very easy on the digestion, quite filling and very versatile - you can do loads with them.

This is obviously all overwhelming to you right now but there are alternative foods. It is just going to take time to look for them and try out new things.

Someone on this board told me to change the way I think - e.g. start having food that I would normally have for supper as breakfast etc. One of the best advice tips I've ever had.

Chin up, this forum will help you!

She mentions "intolerances to wheat, oats......."

The thing that stumps me is; what's the difference between Celiac and 'intolerance'. I guess severity makes the difference... intolerance must be more like an allergy, without possible life threatening conditions.

I have many intolerances but no formal DX of celiac disease. I simply cannot eat these foods.

Either way, the hunger does go away but can come back. Also the food cravings appear to be normal based on what I have read and experienced. Right now, mine are olives and I have no idea why.

Anyway, you might want to check out EnjoyLife food products which are made without many of the common food allergens and they taste closer to normal. They have snack bars that are easy to take along in a pinch. Also, kinikicks (I know this is spelled wrong) has a lot of products too. I buy mine at a local health food store.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
