Oops. Went high carb this weekend because we were travelling and staying with relatives and I did not plan ahead enough to do well... And boy, do I have the head ache to go along with all those muffins.  I'll switch back tomorrow, and probably feel poorly again.  LOL Live and learn.

I was diagnosed with Celiac about 2 1/2 years ago (diagnosed via 3 different blood tests by 2 different doctors and biopsy).  About 18 months ago I began a vegan diet, lost 75 lbs., stopped eating any sugar other than what is in fruit/veggies naturally, began exercising regularly, started taking probiotics daily and now have normal digestion, dropped my cholesterol by 60 points, have perfect blood pressure, etc.  I am 5'9 and weight 130 lbs. and now eat a mostly plant based diet (I eat salmon once a week and nonfat Greek yogurt 3 times a week - other than that, I eat no animal products)...I did this for health reasons and feel and look better than I have for many years.  I eat 2 to 3 pieces of gluten free bread per week, no sugar, pasta once every 6 weeks or so, very little oil, no margarine - I sauté in broth or water.

 

This is the best thing I have ever done for my health, my digestion, my joints, etc.

I went vegetarian for 3 months and then vegan for three. Gained 30 pounds even though I ate what I was supposed to. Was always so hungry. Had a hard time getting the protein and all that vegetable matter killed my GI even with digestive enzymes. Funny how we are all so different.

I follow a wholefood diet - meat, some fish, veggies and fruit.  I have just cut out rice again as I think it was making my last glutening symptoms worse.  I use only olive and sunflower oil.  No dairy as I'm IgG intolerant.  It really does work for me.  First day in ages that I haven't had brain fog after cutting the rice!

I have a good friend who is basically vegan and she is doing well with it too. It just has no appeal for me though.  I don't get full on veggies, and it isn't as satisfying to me. I know that I gain weight on starches and tend to get heavy feeling, so if I went vegetarian without starches or dairy, I think I would feel quite unsatisfied.  I like my fats and proteins... and I love sugar but it is evil.   ;)

 

My joint pains started while on that diet/way of eating. I am pretty sure mine was celiac linked though....

I was almost a vegetarian during university (due to cost and time to cook) and I was fairly slim but school was a 2km walk one way, and I was in the weight room everyday and on a rowing team.... and 20 years younger.  LOL As soon as the exercise stopped, I gained weight eating that way too... but I was eating a lot of pasta at the time.

I eat mostly whole foods too...mostly. I tend to limit my vegetable oils (most are very processed) and go with lard, or coconut oil. I do a bit better without rice too but I don't seem to have a sensitivity to it, luckily.   :)

 

 

I think whole foods are the way to go. Minimal foods with bar codes, right?   :D
