I was reading this site and it was saying how Grain causes inflammation , Grain and sugar I guess , and some Celiacs go on a Gluten free, Grain free diet. Anyone here grain free? I am actually thinking of going Grain Free. It's kinda towards the bottom half of the article. 

 

Here is the link:

I'm considering it too! But I love the full feeling that I get from eating grains. I feel like eating veggies never makes me feel as satisfied as a bowl of veggies AND rice.

I am grain free.  Lately I am using nut flours which help give me a full feeling.  I make muffins, pancakes, or wraps with them.  I make wild rice in place of rice.  I guess it isn't a grain.

 

I had withdrawal symptoms when I stopped eating rice, and buckwheat (which isn't a grain, but is used like one).  Recently I tried to take a supplement which contained rice powder, I noticed some swelling.  After I quit taking it, I had yeast withdrawal symptoms.  Yeast may be part of my struggle.  My doctors are hoping that in time my body may settle down a little bit and not be so irritable.

 

One more idea for the full feeling.  Have some butter, oil, or coconut oil with each meal.  Just shy of a tablespoon should help your tummy feel full, up your energy, and keep you fuller longer.  If you worried about that making you fat, I am not and I have been doing it for years.  I don't know how it will go as I am absorbing more.

 

I don't eat sugar either.  I have small quantities of honey.  I have had to up the carbs since avoiding grain.  I am eating a  more fruit and adding a tbsp. of honey to my smoothies.

 

I am feeling more and more satisfied.  Of coarse I can't tell for sure what all has helped as there are so many factors involved.

Yes !! Alot of factors ... I just bought a 25 lb bag of Rice!! Pfftttt Maby I can give it to friends. I am not 100% sure I am going to do this. I may quit eating potatoes 1st. I have that sore in my mouth , and it was almost gone. I ate some fried potatoes at lunch and low and behold it started getting sore again. So maby it is the legumes ???? I have more research to do. before I decide... What to do what to do...

I am never to worried about a full feeling, meat seems to give me a full feeling so I really wonder if I can get away with meat veggies and fruits ...

I consider myself "grain-lite", I have a small amount of grains once or twice a week (ex. 1/4 rice, coconut muffin). I do feel better eating that way, but I seem to have issues with starches so that could be it for me.

 

BTW, I get sores in my mouth too. They seem to appear when my immune system is acting up, I'm over tired or stressed, or (occasionally) when I'm fighting off a virus. Funnily enough, those are the times when I crave starches/comfort foods... could it be coincidence for you?

Coconut isn't considered a grain. Is it aggravating ? Or you talking a rice coconut Muffin? My mouth sores have since cleared. It is Lichen Planus. I can feel the lil lines they talk about. But they are even almost gone. I am assuming it is because of lack of vitamins of some sort. I don't know. My gut must be healing if my sore is going away!! No to get this yeast stuff taken care of. toes nails falling off , now my finger nails are getting weird ridges in them ... Ughhh sucks to have all this but at least it can be taken care of!

Anyone know what the finger ridges show a deficiency of?  I don't.

 

My nutrient levels went down somewhat before they went up.  Hang in there!  Progress is great!

Vertical nail ridges are fairly common and typically of no concern.  Horizontal nail ridges can indicate an underlying disease.  Horizontal white lines can indicate a nutrient deficiency or problems with the liver.

I am grain free on and off and I have to say that the inflammation I get in my intestines goes away being grain free. I love cooking with coconut, almond and tapioca flours. I use it for "breading" as well like on chicken which I cook in evoo. I highly recommend it if you have chronic inflammation. When I am not grain free I usually eat rice products. And some of those processed gluten-free foods just irritate the heck out of my insides.

 

If you get hungry because your not eating grains, or lack that full feeling, you can eat more protein OR try some protein shakes with fruit. Fruits are considered a carb in the diet world and yes they have sugar, but sugar occurring in nature I think is fine for us.

We are turning towards the grain free life, just learnings more about it.  All i can say is that a month into it and we both feel better.  Been using coconut oil and mostly all organic meats & veggies.  I found a great book full of paleo recipes and it's been fun.  This morning we had pumpkin pancakes with eggs.  Good stuff and no grains!

Thanks for all the responses :) it sure feels good to have people just like me to talk to!! Now since I have posted this I have also figured out I am having a problem with corn. I posted a thread about corn. Anyhoo so I am going to try and go Corn free and see what happens. I eat fresh meats and veggies so it shouldn't be too much of a problem for me. Someone posted a link on my corn thread I have got to read up on. But I am thinking one thing at a time! 1st thing was Gluten, 2nd thing corn. We will see. 

The sores in my mouth seem to come and go. When the come they are not as bad, they are gone more than anything. I am not sure if stress is causing anything or if it is corn or grains or anything eles. I consider myself to be sooo new to this all and still learning so much every time I turn around there is more I am learning! So this corn intolerance is the next thing on my list of things to avoid .. 

 

I would like to ask is anyone knows , Is it an intolerance? Or is it hurting me like Gluten? Gluten damages my body! What about corn? I get pain bloating and gas!! Is it also causing damage?

Agreed. :) 

 

Lately, I have found myself drawn more and more to the paleo diet, and it really does seem to be helping. It naturally eliminates a lot of the foods that people have intolerances/allergies to, and I have found that it just makes my life so much more simple. So you could try paleo! That will cut the gluten (of course!), corn, etc. Are you dairy free as well? 

 

As I am typing this, I am remembering that this entire thread was originally about grain free diets. Geeze! It's early. I am only on my first cup of coffee.  :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, let us know how it goes, w8in4dave. I'm off to caffeinate myself so that I can speak coherently today.  :D

Actually my liver enzymes are up so this makes alot of sense to me ...... I have gotten results back from my toe nail. I had to have it sent in for results. (Sorry Know it is gross) it is not a fungus or yeast. I have to go see a dermatologist to find out what the problem is.

I have not gone grain free altho I have thought about Paleo and grain free I have not done either. I have stopped eating corn or corn by products. Thats kinda hard!! But doable, speaking of being caffeinated I guess I should go and get some myself.

Well, one more piece of the puzzle, at least you know it's not fungus or yeast.  Keep on top of the Derm guy, they can be dismissive or too general. 

 

Good Luck,
