I have not had a cramp, emergency potty trip or bout of D in 5 days!!!

gluten-free, carb and sugar light. 1 librax at night (can't take it 3x a day. It has valium in it and that just throws me for a loop), 1 probiotic in the morning.

When I mean carb light I mean really light. I am mostly back to whole foods, eggs, boarshead bacon, beans, lean meats, Lots of veggies, watermelon (other fruits kinds tear up my mouth). I have also been dairy light but not on purpose. Not sure if that means something.

I am just so happy that I have been able to go to the store without praying someone isn't in the bathroom!

Oh and I've lost 11 lbs in the past couple of months.

Oh I have been dxed with High blood pressure but on meds for that now too.

So have you eliminated all grains? Potatoes? or just some? I would be interested in knowing. :)

Isn't it heavenly not planning your day by access to bathrooms? I (and I am sure many others) am so happy for you.

Hurray!!! Sounds like we're on a similar diet (although mine is technically SIBO) - basically whole foods, protein in the form of fish, chicken broth, or eggs, and lots of cooked veggies and fruits. It's working for me too!

Mushroom- Not entirely. I will make like a banana bread and eat a piece (rice flour) once a week. I made pizza the other night and ate several pieces but that is the only grain carb I've had all week. I've given up all the waffles, pancakes, bread, crackers etc. I find I don't really miss them though.

Now things like potato, although carb, do not react in my body like grain carbs do. I eat a LOT of potato. Usually baked. One every other day maybe. I also eat carrots. I seem to have no problem from veggie carb, only grain carb. *shrug* Im not going to try to understand why lol. If it works, I'm stickin with it!

That's great, I'm glad for you! I'm mostly grain-free(I'm getting there). I still eat white rice maybe once or twice a week. I use a lot of non-grain(buckwheat and quinoa are okay on the grain-free diet, they're not grains). I do feel better too.

Yay yay yay yay yay! Congats! I'm in a similar boat...been feeling great for over a month now! I'm trying to not let "pessimistic" Heather back into my brain, but it's still hard. My paranoia runs deep because my symptoms of glutening are so intense!

Good job again, and good job for staying vigilant! Mad props to you!

Hurray! It's great to find what works. It makes it so much easier to stick to it when you feel much better. :)
