Ok, something is still upsetting my stomach, I have had such a time getting my stomach straight. :( I'm still learning what I can and can't eat, but I can't identify what i could have eaten today that is bothering me. So here's what I ate and maybe someone will see something I shouldn't have eaten..... (i'm not sure I am more than just GI, I don't have the full celiac disease symptoms, but have had the IBS sym. for years)

ok Breakfast was: 1 fried egg, bacon, gluten-free toast (Energ tapicoa bread), no sugar strawberry jelly, 1 hashbrown, low sugar fruit punch, felt fine (other than grouchy from hormones!)
lunch: baked ham, canned black eye peas, fresh tomato, onion, diet dr. pepper,
got the stomach ache after this.... then I ate to pamela's cc cookies (yes, with an already upset stomach). AND my left side is hurting.

What does the packaging on the bacon, the jam, the hashbrowns, the fruit punch, the baked ham and the peas say about ingredients? any natural flavors hiding in any of those that could be the problem? and other suspicious ingredients?

Dear Lesliew,

You didn't say how long you have been on the diet, but I have been on
for almost 8 mos and my stomach could not tolerate what you have
listed. First of all I start breakfast with soluble fiber such as bananas,
applesauce and herb tea(gluten-free). I try to stay away from most fried foods
because I have been sick for a long time and my stomach and yours
need time to heal. In the beginning I had to stay away from tomatoes
and onions. After 6 mos. I slowly am introducing them back into my diet.
I know rice,chicken, applesauce, potatoes and mild veggies are very
boring but you have to stick to the very basics until you heal. I would also
suggest that you cook most veggies and fruit before eating them. In the begining
stay away from fruit drinks and sodas, try substituting water or herbal and
green tea without caffeine. The pain will gradually get better and one day
you will wake up pain-free and you will understand how to stay that way.
When that day comes, you will be able to introduce your favorite foods.
Tonight I had spaghetti (rice pasta) and meatballs which I haven't had
for 2 years. This diet does work, just stick to the basics... Hope you feel
better soon....

I figured out that yesterday's stomach ache was due to aspirin in Excedrine Migraine. But, my stomach hurt today after eating a grilled chicken salad. I'm guess it was something in the ranch dressing or maybe cheese? i need to add, that at this point I think I am only gluten intolerant, not celiac, but I guess you never know for sure unless you have the test....
