New To The Whole Gf Diet, Suggestions?
0

2 posts in this topic

I have been having problems with energy levels, skin problems, constipation etc.

About two weeks ago I decided to go Gluten free, in fact it was grain free for a few days. The difference in my general feeling of wellbeing was massive. I thought the reason for my tiredness all the time was the silly amount of hours I work each week. I decided to have one last binge on a night out with lots of beer and then a bacon sandwich in white bread with brown sauce the next morning. Nothing cures a hang over like a bacon sandwich. That was on Sunday 17/10 and since then I have again been gluten free to the best of my knowledge.

I feel quite good at the moment, no more gurgles from my stomach. You wouldn't believe how embarrassing a stomach rumble can be when you are in bed with someone, most laugh luckily!

I have been eating the following:

Breakfast - a gluten free cereal, I forget the name.

Lunch would be something like a couple of corn crackers with some ham in the middle or a 100% corn tortilla.

Dinner would be a steak, chips, veg or something along those lines.

Snacks have been certain brands of chocolate such as Cadburys, Nestle etc, crisps, snickers (original) which I have been led to believe is gluten-free.

My only complaint is gluten-free foods tend to be very expensive so I am trying to find a lot of mainstream stuff which I can use.

Anyone got any suggestions food wise?

I haven't posted this one before, but feel free to check out the recipes I've put on my website: Tiffany's Recipe Collection. (Please do not copy them onto your website or distribute without credit. I may try to publish these in the not too distant future.) All of them are gluten free, most are casein free, and most don't take very long to make. (I update fairly frequently.)

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
