I Need Help Please

I am day 5 of a metabolic detox and for the next three days can only eat the following foods:

brocolli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, brussels sprout, red and green lettuce, romaine, spinich, endive, apples and pears (whole or juiced). Can anyone help me with ideas with just these ingredients?

I think this might be a boring and long 3 days, please give me some ideas if you have any.

Are you allowed any salt or oil at all? Most of those ingredients would tear up my insides if I ate them raw but they won't have much flavor if cooked without any seasoning and without an aromatic veggie like garlic, onions or carrots. You could just throuw a bunch of veggies in the slow cooker, roast them in the oven or get some of those microwave steamer bags and steam them. Of you could make a lot of juices to drink with veggies and apples if you have a juicer.

When I saw Kale the first thign that came to mind was Kale chips but those call for oil and salt. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Kale-Chips/Detail.aspx

Yea, no oil at all had to eliminate those all out yesterday. Doesn't say anything about salt.

It is likely to be boring but you could do a soup of sorts using the veggies. Since you have been recently diagnosed celiac your digestive system may still be quite sensitive and you might want to make sure your veggies and fruits are well cooked so they may be easier to digest. You may be in for a rough few days as many of your allowed items are a bit hard to digest. I hope this regime helps you rather than making you feel worse.

I'm feeling real weak today from this diet and at my worst, I am so jonsing for even just a rice cracker at this point. This is horrible.

I can not even believe how weak I am today and cold. I have our pellet stove on and turned the furnace on and even resorted to a small electric heater on high in my room, this is crazy. Also having the worst pain ever in my right leg, which I have had total knee replacement in, I can barely walk on it.

The fast is getting to me...

Then stop for now as this is doing you more harm than good. Have a plain broiled chicken breast and some rice or a baked potato and a bland veggie.

In addition to the stress this fast is doing to you it is likely you are also going through withdrawl from the gluten. You need your strength right now.

I wouldn't be able to do that detox diet. Those are were the hardest vegetables for me to digest early in my recovery. I was only able to tolerate protein in small amounts when my insides were a mess. I agree with Ravenwood, you probably should stop.

    • Couldn't have said it better!  
    • If you are going for an endoscopy, then please ask for a celiac antibodies COMPLETE panel.  This will help you determine if you have been diet compliant (zapped by hidden sources of gluten or accidental cross contamination) and if your doctor misses the (possible) damaged areas during the procedure.    That way you can rule out celiac disease and THEN worry about the possibility of other AI issues.   I did this last summer.  I got really sick.  My GI thought SIBO right off the bat.  But I asked just to be tested for celiac disease.  Sure enough, I had elevated antibodies.  No need to test for SIBO or anything else at that point.  I just waited a few months for symptoms to subside.   Good Luck to you!  
    • That's good Megan, that you were tested.  Many people have the genes, but only some develop the disease.  Your doctor is right about celiac often appearing after some kind of physical stress or illness. The tricky thing about eliminating one food is that you body may be reacting to multiple foods.  So not getting better could mean you just eliminated one problem instead of 3. It's not unusual to have digestion issues for quite a while after going gluten-free.  Our guts are damaged and that damage has to heal.  But it can't heal until the immune system stops it's attack.  The immune system attack/reaction can keep going for weeks to months.  So it can be a slow recovery.  Often people report getting better and then getting worse and going back and forth on symptoms. What doesn't help is that our bacteria in our guts can get really screwed up by the disease process.  We can't properly digest things so there is more undigested food for bacteria to thrive on.  Avoiding sugars and carbs can help with that issue. Here are some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months.  Some of these you have already taken care of: Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
      Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
      Don't eat in restaurants
      Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
      Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
      Take probiotics.
      Take gluten-free vitamins.
      Take digestive enzymes.
      Avoid dairy if it causes symptoms.
      Avoid sugars and starchy foods. They can cause bloating.
      Avoid alcohol.

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
