What To Avoid Early On In The Gf Diet

7 posts in this topic

when i started the diet i noticed improvement right away, but it seems all the symptoms are back in full force this week. i have been extremely careful so i'm thinking it must be something else.

i only tested positive for gluten (not casein or soy) but then again i'm not sure how extensive my tests even were.

since i havn't ate any gluten for two weeks i'm thinking it could be 1 of three things:

coffee (i drink 3-4 cups a day)

dairy (i'm a dairy freak)

eating to big of meals at a time ( i usually get sick after the bigger meals)

i was hoping somebody could give me some advice on how to eat early on in the diet. i dont enjoy plain things at all....i really love rich thick sauces,cheese and spicey food. if i had to cut those out i'm not sure what i would eat.

any suggestions are appreciated.

also: what i have been taking to sooth my stomach are: psyliium seed everyday (i have severe constipation problems) pepto besmol and i just started taking flax seed tablets. any other suggestion for this are also welcome.

thankyou

I completely agree with you on the last two possibilites.....I don't know about coffee. If you've only been gluten-free for two weeks, that could be the culprit, regardless of whether you have a casein/lactose/dairy problem or not. I think the last suggestion might be the most likely. Our digestive systems are raw from all the gluten, and we need to be REALLY careful with them in the beginning. Six months in, I am still not digesting things properly. I have symptoms and when I vomit, there are chunks (I apologize for my descriptions) from meals hours ago, which show digestive problems. If you have vomiting, check for chunks of food, as those signify undigested food, I think, and also note how long after your last meal. Definitely, try to spread out your food throughout the day whenever possible so you don't overload your system. This may not be medical, but I think it helps a lot. One more tip, try to stay away from foods that seem harsh on your stomach such as highly acidic foods or rich, thick, spicey things. Those couold be giving you problems. Try to be as natural and careful as you can be and slowly reintroduce the thicker, heavier things as you feel better. Finally, be 100% sure about everything including lotions (if you eat anything with your hands), toothpaste, medicine, etc. Don't lick envelopes (the glue stuff can contain gluten) and be very careful about contamination. Good luck.......I hope this helps and you feel better soon.

thanks for the reply. i 'm going to cut back on dairy this week and try to eat smaller meals.

the one thing i havnt really checked is hair care products and makeup. i do know the hair gel i use has wheat in it...but i wash my hands right away after using it. it was really expensive...and i cant really afford to replace these things at the moment. i did make sure my lipstick/facesoap/shampoo were gluten free tho. those seem like they would be the riskiest items.

My dietitian told me to stay away from dairy for a minimum of one month. Because we have done so much damage to our intestines they are unable to process lactose until they heal. I know how hard that is since I am a cheese freak!!! I did have a grilled cheese sandwich and my symptoms returned (not too bad though). I am still not ready for dairy, sigh.

I have also cut out the coffee and now drink green tea. It still has the caffeine to get me going in the morning and has health benefits too. I am used to it now.

I do love my spicey food too. I eat alot of mexican style foods now. Carne asada tacos are my favorite. Here in California the "real" mexican restaurants do not put cheese on them. Just the marinated cooked meat, onions, cilantro, hot sauce and limes, yummy!!!!!!!!

I found at first to stay very simple. Things you know don't make you ill. Slowly add things in one at a time. Read all labels including medicines and vitamins.

Did you ask the restaurant if their marinating sauce is gluten-free? A lot of times they contain gluten.....

Also, have you checked all your medications, vitamins, supplements?

Maybe it's the coffee. I was fine with it until I had a colonoscopy (go figure).. now I can barely drink it at all! Coffee can be harsh.

Janine,

Do you have any problems with the green tea? I was still having the big D every weekday morning so this week I cut out my usual green tea (lipton w/caff) with honey and the hand full of almonds. No D for two days. I have no problem with dairy and still eat string cheese every morning with no problem.

I'm gonna give it this week and try adding back one thing at a time and see what it is. I just have a feeling it's the tea or honey. Hmmmm . . .

Oh, yeah, I drink coffee just fine, too. A couple of cups every day.

Celeste

    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Following my official diagnosis of celiac disease I went gluten free many weeks ago, but I have noticed absolutely no improvement in my health since.  I still get a plethora of muscle aches and pains almost constantly, I still feel tired, I still get lots of headaches and I still feel very foggy.  Is this normal? I see health sites suggesting some symptoms go within a few days of the diet while others take a bit longer but I have had no improvement whatsoever.  Thanks
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      According to endoscopy report, i'm parasites free. but i have high IgG to candida albican, which may indicate recent or current infection with it. i spoke with my doctor, his reply was like forget about candida or SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth, they only appear in immunocompromised patients! 
    • Italian pasta
      Hi! You will have no problems to eat safe in Italy! Food labeling is much better in Europe  (you can fully rely on labels, they list everything). The only wheat celiacs can have is gluten free wheat starch, used in Schär products and many swedish ones. As italian cuisine is based on pasta and bread, there are a lot of gluten free options, most restaurants are aware of celiacs. All kids age 6 in Italy are screened for celiac. You will find lots of options on glutenfreeroads.com   Enjoy your trip!!
    • Continued Symptoms
      Since she is back on the charts her doctor is generally pleased with her condition. I don't know that I've made it clear enough how persistent and ongoing some of this is for her. She improved so dramatically when we made her gluten free, but there are these couple of nagging issues. I'm beginning to wonder if she has some other food sensitivity... Regarding the speech - we homeschool, will the public schools evaluate her anyway?
    • Italian pasta
      My wife and I are traveling to Italy in October and will be eating authentic food over there obviously. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten and extremely celiac. I have heard rumors that people that are celiac don't have the reaction to the wheat pasta in Italy due to the processing of the wheat is different than that of the states. I am curious how much truth to this there is and if anyone has had any experience with this issue or recommendations as to what to avoid. I've never been outside the states and am fearful that I won't be able to eat over there haha

      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!
