Baby Food To Help Healing?
Posted 14 June 2004 - 05:25 PM
When going off gluten, and going gluten free.. would going to a diet of just baby food be easier on the system to help it heal? Was thinking since baby food is for young or developing internal systems, it should be easier on ya, and should be less stressful on the system so it can focus on fixing the damage done to it.
Maybe I'm wrong there, and I don't know if baby food is gluten-free.. lol.. but anyone got any thoughts on this? LOL

Anyway... it's just a theory. But I really think balancing the type of food you eat will be better, not just fruits, veggies, protiens, but also how it is prepared. Foods that are steamed are easier to digest than roasted or broiled foods, etc.
Son has been gluten-free since December 2001

She suggested starting out the day with a yogurt or energy bar. Three hours later I'm to have a muffin and a glass of milk-I'm actually consuming a little gluten now for testing purposes. For lunch she suggested tuna or deli meat on a gluten-free roll-she recommended Gillian's. You could also have a salad with meat or chicken on it and cheese. Afternoon snack she suggested some fruit and nuts. Finally for dinner any meat with potato and vegetable. Late night snacks consisted of another round of nuts or yogurt or even just a glass of milk.
Today's my first day so we'll see how I do. So far it's worked well, the protein does seem to be helping my gnawing feeeling. Hope this was helpful for you!

Though for me, my villi are fine (according to biopsy and Enterolab), so lucky there.. so I should absorb everything alright, it's I think the large intestines that has the most damage, which isn't so lucky, lol.
Does yogurt have any milk in it though? For some reason I'm thinking it might.. or doesn't, can't remember. The cheese and well, milk though, I think be best to aviod since casein came up as bad for me as well. And nuts, I think I've had a reaction to in the past, not sure. So think I'd hold off on those till maybe I could get some testing there.
So, that leaves a lot of meat eating!
Thanks for the reply, and good luck with your diet. =)

I could be totally wrong, but for some reason I thought casein might be in nuts too? Wrong there? Wouldn't be the first time. =)
But what you said about the lactose and casein makes sense to me, since I figure the products that are supposed to help people who are lactose intolerant break the sugars down for them? I've tried those, and they didn't work at all.. but I didn't know about casein then either. So things for lactose intolerant people, wouldn't work for me then.. if I follow right.
Thanks to all who have responsed. =)

Soo... always read the label! Living without magazine has a really good page in every issue (comes out 4 times a year I think) that lists all the things that casein hides as... although I'm sure you could find a list like it somewhere on line too. And bring it to the store with you so you're not standing there scratching your head trying to remember the 50 things you can't have!
If you're really missing yogurt (and not soy sensitive) they do have a soy yogurt. I personally never really liked it even back when I could eat soy... but might be worth a try... everyone has different tastes
You will learn and this does get easier, promise!!!

kalo, I don't know if it's a life long allergy (casien), but I had never had any problems with milk growing up, use to love ceral, icecream (Who doesn't though? lol), but then noticed milk or icecream left me feeling not so good the next day, maybe within the last 3-4 years.
So if really lucky, maybe after everything has healed, the allergy to it will go poof. Hopefully at least!
