On A Lectin-free Diet Too?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hello Beautiful People,

I hope that this post finds you in a good place.

I was wondering if anyone is on (of course) a gluten-free diet AND a lectin-free diet. I am embarking on this journey for medical reasons. (I hope it clears up joint pain, stiffness and soreness that I've been having for a few weeks.)

If you are on both these diets, please let me know:

1) What you do eat? Any cool dishes? Any particular food that provides a good bunch of nutrients/vitamins? What is a good supplement that you use?

2) Why did you began this lectin-free diet? To cure a pain or something else?

3) How has this diet positively or negatively effected your body? (IE. are bowel movements normal? what is the energy level?)

4) Did you have professional help starting this diet? (IE. did you got a dietician, nutritionist, a particularly knowledgeable doctor?)

I was just doing a seach on Lectin Free diets and came across this older post. Just wondering if anyone had tried this. I was just doing some searching on the net and found some really interesting things that link Lectin Sensitivity to celiac other allergies, anxiety, stress, acne and much much more.

Anyone else know much about Lectin?

Thanks

Lisa :)

I really don't know much about them but the Paleo diet is a place to start your research. Or consider the bernstein diabetes forum. They eat a low carb diet which ends up being almost ompletely lectin free by default. There is some discussion of lectins there, and great recipes.

Lisa79... I am heading down that path right now! Been gluten-free the best that I can since 2006 and it has helped for the most part. Recently I've noticed, for whatever reason, sensitivities to other foods. On this site there is a great link to Dr. Krispin's Lectin Report (www.krispin.com/lectin.html). I started out just eating by way of Dr. Cordain's Paleo Diet, but as you can read in Dr. Krispin's work, there are other potential foods out there that could be causing issues.... nightshades (white potatos, tomatos, eggplants, and peppers) and all beans (legumes) are huge potential culprits... I was also surprised to see that ALL grains could cause issues, not just wheat, barley, rye, and oats.... and then no dairy either (in any form). This pretty much sums up the article, but I think it is a must read for sure.... as far as good dishes.... hmmm...

I pop a can of tuna in olive oil for a quick lunch, and then have some walnuts with honey on top for dessert. I suspect I must cut out coffee too, but will just substitute green tea (will take some getting use to). I only buy fresh meat counter meats and fish, and once in a while I'll eat Hormel's Natural Deli meat....

For snacks, I do a ton of veggies and fruits.

Hope this helps.

Lisa79, almost forgot about the supplement part. Don't know if you know about Dr. Kenneth Cooper (father of aerobics movement), but just started to take 1000mg of Vit. D a day and 1gram of omega 3 oil a day. Along with this, I do take 4 oz. of a juice called MonaVie and I feel that I am pretty good vitamin wise, etc.... but for the most part, the paleo way of eating is pretty much a great way to get most of what you need...

I've just started going lectin free and I'm finding its in almost everything.  Depending upon the list you look at some of the things in the paleo diet contain lectins in them.  I had an awesome breakfast this morning, it was sweet potatoes sauteed in olive oil with onion, and a porridge made from butternut squash with a touch of olive oil and molasses.  Im trying to come up with more recipes as this was my first if anyone has any to share I'd appreciate it.

    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do. 
    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!  
    • That's hard.  You can try the "I come to be social,"  "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable.  I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy.  Do go, have fun.  Don't let food stop you.  Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it.
