I would love to know what others are eating daily, and record what I am eating everyday. I have a wheat allergy and am 40 pounds overweight. I would like to put this thread up daily as a tool to help us be more accountable for what we eat, and get food ideas from what others are eating. Wether you are trying to gain, lose or stay the same, I would love to hear from you. Do you want to join me? I'll start:

Breakfast-one piece of toasted Udi's bread with butter, a fried egg on top with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Coffee, cream and sugar.

Lunch-One Aidells chicken apple sausage sauted with fresh onions, and red/yellow peppers, Fresh cut up strawberries and a granny smith individual apple sauce.

Snack-8 schars crackers (yum) with cheese

Dinner-3 ounces of pot roast, 3 small red potatoes, 8 roasted baby carrots.

Snack= 1/4 cup M&M's ;)

Water-64 ounces

vitamins-yes

exercise-yes

Calories- 1044

Protein- 40 grams (terrible)My goal is 70 grams per day

NOT that I'm one to offer an eating plan... cause I don't eat breakfast. I drink coffee all morning and have lunch at about noon. Today was bacon and lettuce ('cause we didn't have any tomatoes) using Pamela's bread and Hellman's mayo. For supper, I had cole slaw w/ homemade dressing and chunks of hot corned beef I cooked yesterday in the crockpot (more cole slaw than meat). And some wine. I'm not a really good example of how to eat on a daily basis...

I think you did pretty good today! Thanks for posting. I forgot about BLT's.....now that I have Udi'd and Rudy'd bread, I may have to have that! Yum!!!

I see you are dairy free. I am suspecting that I am having trouble with dairy as well. I won't be happy about it either, if it turns out to be true. You must still be mourning the loss of dairy..(((hugs)))...I'm still mourning wheat, it's been almost a year, but I think I may have had a turning point recently, I think I had my last big Wah Wah/temper tamptrum session, and am starting to accept it better.

I drink a smoothie every morning with 1/2 cup organic blueberries, 1/2 cup organic Concord grape juice, a cup of organic yogurt, a cup of organic milk, and ALL of my supplements thrown into it. I then proceed to drink black coffee for the next couple of hours.

Today, I had a tuna melt on Udi sandwich bread (tuna, Smart Balance mayo, mustard, onions, balsamic vinegar and a slice of cheddar cheese). I had an organic apple for a snack.

For dinner, I had Tilapia with lemon and dill, spaghetti noodles with a lemon-garlic sauce I made fresh, and sauteed broccoli with the same lemon-garlic sauce. I had two glasses of Chardonnay to round out the whole thing.

You know, I like BLT's, too, but I prefer to wrap the tomato and bacon in the lettuce--it's soooo much better than on bread....and fewer calories, too.

Your foods sound delicious! I need to dump the butter and get something like smart balance instead.

I like your BLT idea, and your tuna melt sounds divine!

Thanks for posting!

I used to eat breakfast everyday..oatmeal with honey and whole wheat toast..no wonder I was in so much pain!

Now I tend to skip breakfast to remain pain free and have black coffee with sugar. Sometimes I eat boiled eggs with fruit or scrambled eggs. For lunch it is usually cooked veggies or a small salad with strawberries, green grapes(fruit that does alright by me) grilled fresh herb chicken breast. A natural fat free salad dressing with no corn or soy! Dinner? A small amount of protien and veggies.

I eat small meals because I find that I do better that way. Less pain.....

I've gain 10 pounds since being gluten-free, at first I ate a lot of gluten-free replacements plus nuts. Now, I do not eat a lot of gluten-free products, my treat is gluten-free pizza crust every now and then. I eat whole foods with little to no grains. At my year mark I plan on having a sandwich!

I like this thread, it's helping with new ideas!

Breakfast - a banana and peanuts, coffee with rice milk and honey, a multi-vit. with mins, calcium w/ D and a vitamin D capsule.

Snack - peanuts

Lunch - I packed homemade curried pea soup with lots of veggies in it, but I had to go to a business lunch and ordered grilled fish, white rice and redbeans and fried plantains. I was kinds of worried about CC because it was a Cuban restaurant (all that bread) but so far so good!

Dinner - Pounded chicken breast with a little chopped garlic, onion, fresh sage, shredded zucchini & S &P. I roll that up, then wrap a piece of thin bacon around it (applewood smoked is to die for). My sidekick grilled that for me wrapped in foil, along with a sweet tater for me (just scrubbed and stuck in foil, it's perfect on it's own). I made him a big foil packet of thinly sliced white taters with onion, olive oil and s&p.

Tomorrow for breakfast I'll have some left over white potatos, a fried egg white (yolk allergy), the pea soup for lunch, and probably shrimp or something for dinner. (I better go defrost some shrimp!)

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      I definitely had more energy, I was virtually bedridden beforehand, but it also felt like something of a serotonin boost, and, bizarre as it sounds, my senses seemed heightened. I felt great and I didn't know why. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      i am wondering if those who get that initial "rush" of a day or twos relief of symptoms are "flying" on adrenaline?  wonder about adrenal fatigue?  not sure that is considered a real thing in western medicine... just a thought.  and you return of sym suggest a glutening.  Anything new in the diet?  even a new package of an already  checked product?  soap and shampoo need to be checked, or used very carefully.  is wife still eating gluten?  if so make sure sh is not bringing it to you.  kisses are nice, but make sure she brushes first, lol skipping products that are "made in shared buildings"  for at least a while. take the B12 on an empty stomache
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Excellent. The chances are your body won't absorb some of this however so get as many good B sources in your diet as possible in addition. Get some sunshine as well, I know it does rain sometimes in Melbourne but believe me on that score you do a lot better than the poms.   Try and note these positive things, it's so easy when you're down to forget them. There will be more to come. Imagine yourself climbing a mountain. There are points at which you have to travel laterally or even down in order to follow the right path but your overall trajectory is upwards. You're actually lucky to have found it now at 28 with so much time ahead for healing and enjoying the fruits of it.  For me the gluten reaction is the initial cause of the depression but once that's removed it doesn't automatically lift like magic. Whilst the brain fog lifted soon on gluten-free diet, (there was a physical perceptible feeling in my head whilst I had that, a kind of thickness sort of like wearing a diving mask all the time that distances you from the world), the longer term depression isn't so easily shifted. I think this is because there are negative pathways that have been reinforced over many years. That's what living in a constant state of anxiety can do. It wrecks your self esteem which isn't magically repaired as your diet changes, sadly! As my physical symptoms lifted but I still felt depression, if on a different level, I realised I'd have to heal my mind as well as my gut. So I'm currently seeing a counsellor and it is helping. Not there yet though Yes I also get this and the mental side for me is also by far the worst side of it. I used to think I may die every time I got the chest pains but that wasn't as bad as feeling like shit 24/7 or having to fake a good time when feeling awful inside.  The single best thing about realising my gluten problem was that it explained that the underlying cause of that depression and anxiety was physical, not a defect of character, just some bad luck in the makeup of my gut and immune system. Hope that knowledge helps you also, when the anxiety strikes recognise it for what it is. A misdirected fight or flight response to an internal attack on your body.  Have a look at some cognitive behavioural therapy techniqes for challenging negative thoughts, that may be helpful? CBT has a very good success rate here in UK, better than anti depressants or talking therapy I think and it focuses on the practical,.  As you realise there's a load of bulls**t in society about how we view and discuss mental health. Don't buy into it. A lot of 'strong' people out there are simply bottling up their suffering through misguided pride. If people stigmatise you they're doing you the favour of letting you know they're not worth bothering with.  I got a lot of support on here when I was in your position and I'm sure you will too. I wish you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll be seeing more improvements in the weeks and months to come.      
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      As you doubtless know now, there are so many ways celiac can present, here's as big a list as I could find online. It would probably be quicker to list what isn't a factor For me personally, nausua, check, left sided back hip pain (my laymans theory here is that celiac is affecting the sciatic nerve which runs from lower back down leg) , check, chest pain also - but for me this comes in short bursts more I guess like heartburn - I thought I was having heart attacks... Check to the rest too... And, for what its worth, other things like being prone to bronchial infection oh hell yes.  I'm currently in the glutened / affected by something group myself so I can only share the advice I've been given. Start a food diary and see if you can track down anything diet related that may be affecting you. Eat as clean as you can, ease up on alcohol, just try and give yourself the best chance of recovery. Have a google of 'heal my gut' diet tips too, you're in the recovery phase at the moment. All the best, at least there's comfort in knowing you're not alone!   Matt  
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Matt, I will be sure to take it all onboard. It's really good to talk to others that have had similar experiences. I'm currently upping my b12 and also taking a additional (gluten free) multi and b complex, also omega 3s and Vitiam D3. I had been noticing small improvements that I forgot to mention in my previous post. I noticed that I fall asleep now much easier than before going gluten-free, I also have moments where my body feels more calm, then blood in my stool has stopped I haven't had any in 10 weeks. My mind was constantly fixated on negative thoughts for the past 2 years and they slowly began lifting from all day negative thoughts to maybe half a day of negative thoughts if that makes sense, but this pass week and a half they have come back, I'm also finding my self very nervous again around other people I'm hoping this will pass. The anxiety / depression is the worst symptom for me I would not wish it on my worst enemy, if that went away I would be the happiest man in the world. I found it very hard to talk to people about my mental health issues at work before I lost my job as I found some people stigmatise me and don't understand or really care, but I figure i don't need narrow minded people like that anyway, and as a man its hard to open up but my wife is very supportive and encouraging. Thanks again for the advice really apricate it

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
