I'd say this sounds like a very bad idea. I have no scientific proof, but common sense tells me the more gluten you ingest, the more damage you do.

I think of it like rat poison. If I accidentally ate a little of it and it tasted good, would I be happy to just go ahead and eat some more.

The immune reaction is a chemical reaction. An immune molecule hooks onto a gluten molecule which allows it to start the process that does damage to the intestines. So, dependent upon the speed of the process in each individual, the damage is going to likely be dosage dependent. Eating more throughout the day just because you slipped during breakfast is not a good idea if you want to avoid intestinal damage.

Sorry for being rude,

That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.

Your symptoms will last longer for how much gluten you intake, don't eat more, you will get sick for longer, also, cheating will make you want to eat more and more gluten because you will be craving it more and more because you have been eating it more and more, so don't cheat, if you by ACCIDENT get gluten, just wait for those symptoms to end not make them worse. DON'T CHEAT

flagbabyds...ROFL! Let's not say that people with celiac disease don't have strong opinions! :lol:

The thing is, if you're new to this whole thing, this sounds like a reasonable question. It's that "diet" word that throws people. Eddie, for me and my kids, this is how it worked. When first going gluten-free (and I mean within the first week) it didn't seem to make a difference whatever the amount of it accidentally eaten (it was a touchy first few weeks with my kids.) I'd even say that for the first few weeks, it didn't much matter. Now, however, that we've pretty much removed gluten from out diets (with the occasional accident) and have healed in some very visible ways, a little bit in my daughter, for instance, will have her throwing up in half an hour, but otherwise nothing else obvious (little = a bread crumb.) A lot of gluten, however, will have her throwing up, having intestinal cramps and major flu symptoms for 3-5 days (a lot = a bite of a cookie.) It really is a poison to us, even though that sounds so dramatic.

Good luck in working this out! I swear, it does get easier!

:rolleyes: that's the one thing we need to all remember--WE ARE NOT ON A DIET--we are eating or not eating the foods that will make us healthy :) and keep us healthy :D it's not a diet, it's a lifestyle--when people are not understanding my explaination, i tell them its like being diabetic, only they can have a little sugar and we cannot have any wheat, rye, barley, or oats---as this person is standing in front of me eating their Krispy Kreme donut, i say--like that donut, even if it jumps out and says "eat me, eat me" i know i cant have it and that prevents that lifetime on the hips syndrome :P--eddie--this is a lifestyle that you cannot cheat with--for your health you must be very conscious of everything you put in your mouth or touch--you must be careful--yesterday, i had a man hand me a sandwich to be scanned and he had heated it in the oven and i could smell the bread on my hand--i immediately went and washed my hands--we must be VERY CONSCIOUS ;) i know my life is so much better now that i am gluten-free :D deb

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
