for those who have been on a strict gluten-free diet how well have all of u been doin...i'm tryin really hard and sometimes i eat things that are contaminated and didn't know...or i've used pots and pans at my girlfriends house who doesn't follow a gluten-free diet...are u all avoiding gluten better than i am or are u guys have a lot of accidental ingestion or contamination?
just curious and would like to know if i'm not the only one who finds it very hard to follow a gluten-free diet...

I still sometimes have pain in my guts or bonepain or headache and i don't know what i did wrong again. Well, i think that more people who go glutenfree have problems.

Greetings, Stef

I have slip-ups, but I am quite paranoid, so not very often. We all have mistakes, it will get easier as we get used to it.

No, not to many slip ups, and if I do, it's when I know I'm taking a risk (even if I try to minimize it). I don't find the gluten-free diet all that hard, as I enjoy making simple things, and cooking from scratch. The first couple months were harder, but it just meant that I was more restrictive about what I ate. Are there particular areas where you're having trouble with which we can help?

Eddie,

A person I met here through the message boards once said she looked at the foods that had gluten as tainted or contaminate. Just that idea has really helped me. I find that I look at the little bits here and there that are bad for me more seriously.
I'm new at this too and having the message boards has been a great motivator too!
You are surounded by people who are having the same problems you are.
My cooking is very basic. Jack Lalanne, the exersise guru, once said, "If man made it, don't eat it".
Good luck and let us know what you need.

Melissa

well i just bought brand new pots and pans...had to go and get a brand scrubber thing for the dishes and i'm sure restaurants that say have a gluten-free menu have a accidental contamination...thats my fear of the diet is the accidental contamination...so thats what i'm being paranoid about...
