Unidentified Food Problem?
Posted 01 August 2004 - 12:08 PM
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.

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
gluten-free since 11/03, neg biopsy, IGA elevated
