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

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

:) 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!
