Celiac Weight Loss Group?
0

9 posts in this topic

with all of the food issues we have, joining something like weight watchers isn't always an option. i was wondering if anyone would be interested in being part of an online celiac weight loss group? we could share diets/recipes, talk about frustrations, and encourage each other.

what do you think?

Excellent idea!! Count me in! I have been using Weight Watchers, but it just doen't meet my dietary needs. Everyone recommends whole wheat things, and just don't understand when I say I can't have them. Our breads and pastas are so much higher in calories than wheat, so it is easy for me to get fatter than I am!

Can we start a thread that is just weight loss and accountability? One with just tips and menus and weigh-ins? I would want to include tape measure results, because I lose inches before I lose pounds! Maybe even just keep it on this thread, and anyone interested can post to it.

OK, yesterday I blew it. I think my Honeycombs have a cross-contamination issue. I could feel the reaction less than an hour after eating them. I can eat plain oatmeal without a problem, so I know it's not the oats in it.

I also just plain ate too much Easter candy!

breakfast: 1 bowl Honeycomb cereal, 3/4 c whole milk

lunch: grilled beefsteak, french fries (homemade), pear

dinner: hamburger patty w/veggies on top

snack: 1 whole box chocolate cherries, 1 caramel egg

bedtime: an apple

The daytime snacks got me. I will have to do better today! :rolleyes:

i think the best place to start would be to chat about what kinds of diets we're on and what has worked for us in the past. what do you think?

I cannot have gluten, eggs, poultry, strawberries, anything from the peach family, and tree nuts. I am so happy to be able to have dairy!

Monday:

breakfast and lunch: lean beef steak and fries

dinner: lean beef steak, mahed potatoes, peas

snacks: apple, cheese cubes, potato chips

I was at a church function serving snacks, and the only thing I could have was potato chips and cheese cubes. I looked at all of the homemade goodies the other ladies had brought, and thought how the misery was just worth even one taste. I will just have to make sure that I take something that I can have, so I joined the fellowship committee. It is my responsibility to take care of myself!

So much for spelling! That is "mashed potatoes" and "the misery was just NOT worth even one taste". One of these days, I might be perfect....NNOTTT!! :D

    • 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.
