Good Sources Of Fiber?

Anyone have good ideas on how to replace the fiber I used to get in all of my whole grain breads and such? I have increased my salad intake...and cook brown rice instead of white...thinking it's better. But, forgive my frankness, need to go back to being "regular" (although at this point, not sure what that should be! I've been on such a roller coaster D and constipation for so long now). Ideas? Here's an idea of what I'm eating on a daily basis right now:

Breakfast:

either a Van's Buckwheat waffle or Bob's Red Mill hot cereal

piece of fruit (banana, plum, etc)

Lunch:

salad with dark leafy greens, tomatoes, carrots, usually lite balsamic vinagrette dressing and a little turkey breast deli meat and cheese

fruit (cherries, grapes, plum, etc)

Snacks:

peanuts, or a few Nut Thins crackers

Dinner:

varies. Usually chicken, with rice, and salad or veggies. Sometimes also gluten-free pasta with spaghetti sauce.

Dessert:

reduced fat slow churned Dreyers ice cream

You may not be getting enough fat! That can be a problem. Low fat diets are very unhealthy and actually cause heart attacks, rather than prevent them. You need to avoid trans fats. Any hydrogenated fats are terrible. Coconut oil (cold pressed) is great. Animal fat is HEALTHY for you, and your body needs it (not in huge amounts, of course).

Your fiber intake sounds fine. Too much fiber will mess up your bowels, too. Do you drink enough plain water?

I just bought some rice bran to put in Carol Fenster's Multigrain bread. Still working on the last bread so it'll be a day or two before I try it, but I'll let you know if it's good! It's supposed to be very high in fiber.

Also, dried fruit is very good.

I agree with Ursula. It looks like you're getting lots of fiber. Maybe for added healthy fats, you could use pure olive oil on your salad with a little bit of balsamic and maybe add some peanut or almond butter to your fruit or waffles in the morning. Coconut oil is great too. I always feel better (and my weight stays down) when I add enough healthy fats to my diet.

Protein with my breakfast also helps my body work properly for the rest of the day.

Oh - but for fiber contents of foods www.whfoods.com is a great website.

Good point, I didn't really think about fat. My body is probably freaking out because since I went gluten-free, I also cut a great deal of fat out of my diet. (less fast food=healthier eating!!!) I do get some fat in my diet, I eat peanuts quite a bit, and do occasionnally splurge for an order of french fries, and eat some dark chocolate and/or ice cream. I also eat both white and dark meat chicken, actually, I LOVE to bake a whole chicken about once a week. (I have it down to an art) I go about 50/50 on white and dark meat, but sinfully, I enjoy the perfectly crispy skin....(ew, I know, to some, but it's soooo good I can't help it!) But regardless, my body may be getting used to not eating out all the time. Previously I was enjoying more hamburgers and fried everything when home with my husband, and it doesn't quite know what to do!

I do definitely drink enough water. You can't NOT drink water and survive here in Texas! (I'm in Dallas and today's high is 102) In fact, I make it a point to take my daily multivitamin because I'm afraid I dilute minerals with how much I drink. (I drink coffee in the mornings, and maybe a diet coke a day as well) I just take meds that make my mouth so dry all the time, that water helps. I would imagine that I drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day, and at least 8 20 oz glasses of water, sometimes more.

A handful or two of almonds every day as an afternoon snack!!! That's what helps me, and I eat very similar to your diet. Nuts are a great source of fber and protien!!!

speaking of beans (yum) anyone know a good replacement for a good ol' bean burrito? I'm thinking refried beans and corn tortillas just won't do the trick, but I might be surprised. I love refried beans (even the fat free kind, which can't REALLY be refried).

Of course, the ones with fat give you a little fat added back to your diet!

I use corn tortillas for lots of things ... I buy the ones in the Mexican dept. of Kroger and they are soft rather than the kind that break easily.

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
