Im just curious if any of you now like a food you didnt like before having to go gluten free?

I always have hated chocolate. But now since goiing gluten-free, I seem to love it. I keep some in the freezer so when I have that major attack of I need a sweet, I have some.

Also I never liked squash at all, and now I seem to love it.

Seems my taste buds have re adjusted, since so many things gluten-free I try, well taste yuk.

I definitely realized a difference in my choice of food. I used to hate beans of any kind and now I like them. I used to love tuna fish but lately it has been tasting extra fishy so I haven't really been eating it. I also never liked squash, asparagus or sweet potatoes but now I like all of them. So strange! :)

;) there arent many foods that i didnt like, but i have noticed that now i can eat many things that i couldnt before----like i have always loved broccoli and cauliflower, but couldnt eat them because of the diarrhea, not that they still arent gassy :P but at least i can eat them--i couldnt drink orange juice before because of terrible heartburn, now i can drink it with no problem--gluten was interfering at every turn for me and now i can eat things i couldnt before and it's great :D deb

Not sure if this counts --- I didn't used to eat potato chips, but since starting the gluten-free diet in February, I have had probably just as many or more than I had in my entire life prior to the diet. I still liked them before, but I had so many other options and with so much cut out...avoiding lots of sugar and acid in addition to gluten...there just isn't all that much besides potato chips that I can snack on.

I was a VERY picky eater before the diet and I have found that I am far less reluctant to try new mixes and recipes than before...probably because with many of the staple foods in my diet cut out, I need to find new stuff...again, I think I didn't directly answered the question :lol: , but just adding my two cents.

I'm only 4 or 5 weeks gluten-free so I can't really say yet, however I'm an eater and there are very few foods I don't like.

Since going gluten-free I've started to try and eat more healthy and I have cut out all chocolate and most sweets totally. I'm eating very little refined carbs and eating more basic foods.

I never ate things like potato chips before and still don't, I'm one of those that watches my weight like a hawk... I have a lot of clothes (shopaholic) and I can't get any bigger or they won't fit and I won't buy anything, not one piece, a size bigger, to me that just gives me permission to get bigger.

So far I don't really miss anything other then pizza and I tried a mix to make a gluten-free pizza crust and so far I'd rather do without.

For me, at first my sugar cravings were crazy! I had a sweet tooth before and then it just went nuts! I went through a period where I didn't knnow what to eat and was craving sugar, so I would have ice cream for dinner! It finally balanced out and I actually can't have high levels of sugar now! funny.

Now, since working hard to balance out my diet, I am eating a lot more soy products, vegetables and I added red meat to my diet after 15 years without. With my diet so restricted, I figured I had better add the meat back in.

Now I just try hard to eat a balanced diet, although it doesn't always work. gluten-free isn't exactly CONVENIENT for someone who eats on the run all the time!

p.s. thanks for posting on here! It's so good to hear what other people are going through.

The first few months I added salt to EVERYTHING and I rarely used salt before limiting my diet. I have also been going crazy with the potatoes and I haven't really eaten potatoes or chips in years.

I have finally been able to cut back on my salt to almost my former level and well, the potatoes are still there (I can eat them!!!) but not as much as before.

I also eat fruit daily where it used to be a rare thing, I am constantly amazed at how sweet it is...

I've discovered that my carb cravings, which were very intense, are gone since I gave up dairy. York testing revealed I produce antibodies to milk so I gave them up and the cravings went away.

My tastebuds have changed dramatically since going gluten free. I used to not be able to be in the same room as broccoli and now I crave it. I also like beans more than I did before. I still love potatoes pretty much in any form thank God they're gluten-free!

Fruit and yogurt! I ate neither before going gluten-free (though I didn't have anything against them :rolleyes:) and now, it's my favorite breakfast and/or snack. (And, it has to be plain, ff yogurt that I flavor myself. The premixed, sweetened, additived junk turns me off big time.) And fruit, I hadn't realized how sweet it is! Mmm... Oh, and I also eat beans almost daily now, very filling and satisfying.

There are lots of additives in processed/prepared foods that we stop eating. Once our bodies adjust to more healthy foods that we can actually taste - they taste good. I also believe that our bodies crave things it needs (we might not feed it the right things however). I got on an organic olive binge - rather pricey. Then I read quite by accident that olives have a natural antibiotic in them - go figure!

I'm a fairly new celiac (only 6 months), but I have kind of noticed a difference in my tastes. I definitely eat a lot more rice now than I used to. I can also fix a potato in about 5 different ways or more it seems like.

I did, however, meet with a nutritionist about 3 months ago, and she said that it's okay to eat/splurge on something that I really want (i.e. subway, real pasta, pizza) Have you all heard of this? If so, what sort of things do you splurge on, and how often do you splurge?

:angry: your nutritionist is so wrong--WE CAN NOT SPLURGE--never, ever--once you have gone gluten-free eating things that contain gluten will probably make you very sick--we can never have gluten again--the nutritionist needs to take some classes--maybe you should give them this forum to read---deb

I agree with Deb- no cheating!!

The thing is, if you're on a diet say for weight loss and you splurge once in a while, you simply prolong the time it takes to reach your goal. No harm done.

The reason you really shouldn't intentionally "splurge" on a gluten-free diet if you're celiac is that it always does harm to your body. Without fail. Sorry. :(

I can't believe a nutritionist would say it's okay to cheat! This person needs some serious training. It's bad enough when we have accidental slip ups, but for a professional to tell you it's okay to cheat is really irresponsible. Even if you don't have an obvious physical reaction, your insides may be affected.

:rolleyes: i have mentioned this in another thread, but i will say it again--my mom just had surgery in a big hospital in midland--250 bed--my sister, dad, and i--all celiacs and she is a dietician went to the cafeteria for lunch--my sister asked for the dietician and asked her what was gluten free on her menu :o she had no idea what we were talking about--so judy asked, "havent you served any celiacs in your hospital?" :unsure: and the lady had no idea what a celiac is--a trained dietician who usually always knows more about foods for special diets then doctors do--she didnt know anything--my sis said :angry: "there is not one worker in my kitchen who does not know how to serve a celiac--you had better do some studying!"---there isnt enough info given to these people--i guess it is up to us to get the info out there ;) deb

:) Thanks for your opinions everyone! I really appreciate the imput. I realize it can hurt me to cheat, but I was just following what I was told. The few time I have cheated, it hasn't made me sick at all, but I do realize there can be long term affects. I am definitely going to look into it with my specialist. Thanks again!

      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I know there has been a lot of suggestions to go and talk to you doctor already - so I am on repeat - to get the best / accurate results - gluten should be eaten prior to the scope being done.    I hope that you can get/ or already have been able to get the appointment bumped up  - keep calling the doctors office and keep pressing them to move your appointment closer - I have appointments move up many times!

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
