On A Lectin-free Diet Too?

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.

    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      I was recommended to take at least 10g of gluten daily prior to the endoscopy.
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Hello,   So I've got a endoscopy schedueled on May 20th and my question is how much gluten do I need to be eating to maintain sensitivity levels? I found out 10 days ago that I potentially could have celiac. I had been on a pretty full gluten diet up until that night and then tried to cut it out for a few days until I found out more information. During my 10 days I have introduced gluten a couple times already. GI said to continue eating gluten up until the procedure. If I haven't really been on a gluten free diet, only a couple days here and there so far, how much gluten do I need to maintain for a proper biopsy that is two weeks away? Any info is appreciated.   Thanks
    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I haven’t found any large scale studies on this, but only a handful of individual case reports suggesting that in rare cases giardia can temporarily mimic celiac (both the serology & villous atrophy) until it is treated.   I think this is a  complex matter as giardia effects patients differently (most are asymptomatic whilst others suffer from chronic symptoms including malabsorption) for reasons that may not be well understood. In my case - My GI agrees that Giardia can directly cause villous atrophy that cannot be distinguished from Celiac.  As the healing of the villi can be a slow process, I will schedule a repeat endoscopy 6-12 months after my giardia was treated.   Ttg antibodies can also take 6-12+months to completely normalise, especially if the starting levels are high. 6 months would have elapsed at the end of this month, so will schedule a repeat test, hoping for a normal Ttg result to prove the theory.   I have decided to remain on a normal gluten diet until it can be proven that I’m a celiac and not just suffering from a giardia infection.  I have reason to be optimistic as my Gliadin IgA levels are negative (not iga deficient) and also given the sharp decrease in ttg levels 4 weeks after giardia was treated.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      It took all of 3 years before ALL of my symptoms resolved and it was the neuro ones that were the last to go.  If you have been careful about your diet, then you may not be getting glutened as much as you think.  It sounds like you have been careful because you are questioning things you should question to get clarification on.  I am sure if you were doubtful, you would refrain from eating something until you know for sure. Neuro symptoms can last for much longer than other symptoms.  Please be patient because my last neuro symptom was the one that took 3 years.  Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies?  The B vitamins are important for neuro health, especially B12.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
