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.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
