0

14 posts in this topic

omg i have this god awful salt taste in my mouth and i can not seem to get rid of it no matter what :(

is there such a thing as withdrawal and this may be one of the symptoms?

and what are the other symptoms i should look out for?

i am so new to all of this its all overwhelming today is day 1 :o

i went to the superstore last night and bought as much as i could with the money i had and my dh(dear husband(fly lady term) did his shopping and i am still standing in this section that i did not even knew existed and had no clue what to eat what to choose and freaking out over the prices, but i took a deep breath and bought few things,like cereal,tortillas,bread mix, natchos,soy beens,(look like green beens this is taking a big step for me as i DO NOT like veggies ) tried a recipe from on line that was ok but too greasy for my liking will have to tweek it another time lol

Stop! Take a deep breath. Now jump up & down 5 times!

It doesn't have to say gluten free to be gluten free. Look on the " what's for dinner" thread and see what people eat. Ok....some of them are gourmet cooks & some of them seem to love Brussels sprouts and tofu. A lot of them ( us) just eat the same regular stuff from before. Leftover grilled chicken on salad. Chili. Steak & baked potatoes. BBQ pork and OreIda fries in the oven. Chicken tacos. Ice cream. I'm getting hungry!

I did make sure I had a pretty chain for my reading glasses when I went to the grocery. Some of the ingredients are really small. You can do it.

It can be easiest to go with as much whole unprocessed food as you can for a bit. Fresh meats and chicken, rice, potatos, fruit and veggies are all going to be safe in their natural state. Some companies are really good at labeling, Kraft and Unilever are two of them. If you don't see gluten listed it is gluten free. For pasta I usually get Thai Kitchen rice noodles. They cook really fast and are not as expensive as some of the specialty gluten-free brands. It can be overwhelming at first but you will get the hang of it.

Ask them- have you seen toast crumbs in the jelly? Broken chips in the dip?

I have a hot cheesy dip I bring to things. I have a small oven safe bowl and the bigger oven safe bowl. I put some in each. I make a personal bag of chips and carrot sticks. Then I let them have at the big bag of chips & big bowl of dip. I have my nice private, safe bowl & chips.

What you do is openly pick your nose in front of them, wipe it off on your shirt then stick your finger in the dip and say, "What... you said stuff can't be transferred in this manner. It's only a little bit of booger and I wiped it off, there's no contamination in the dip- go on... eat it!"

These women are stupid and mean. Are they relatives or roommates? Can you avoid them? They don't get it and it appears that they don't care. You need support, not sabotage. Ergh! They need to come here and read what cc can do.

Love it! I don't think I'd have the nerve to do it.

Did you eat pine nuts perchance? There is a thing called pine mouth that gives a metallic taste for a couple weeks.

I get a horrible taste in my mouth - I had chronic bad breath and the horrible taste until we'd been on GAPS for a while. Introducing foods in, I realized that it is directly related to cheese. My bad BO is also cheese. If I have a tiny amount of cheese I'm ok. But if I have a slice I'll wake up the next day with the AWFUL taste and bad BO, and they last a few days at least. (I'm fine with yogurt and haven't tried fresh milk or cream).

Brussels sprouts are awesome, unless they are frozen. (keep in mind, though, that I don't like tomatoes. Which is, according to many people, very weird.) And you can eat actual green beans. Edamame are pretty good, but green beans are just fine.

So, I kind of didn't have dinner today, but last night I had an egg and greens sandwich on gluten-free bread. Basic fried egg with mustard greens from my garden, a little mustard, two slices of bread. There was something else on my plate too... hmmm... oh, leftover asparagus and kidney beans. Pretty basic. I don't usually have bread, but I splurged at a gluten-free bakery Thursday. Normally, I'd have a baked potato/sweet potato with the above egg.

Couple of meals:

1. baked beans, rice, and veg (pick one, frozen is usually really easy)

2. egg, sweet potato, and veg

3. tuna salad, gluten-free crackers, and veg

4. pork chop, applesauce, and baked potato

If you're still eating dairy, drop it. Dairy gives a lot of people reflux, which can make your mouth taste weird.

    • Celiac Sensitivity?
      For dining out, check out the website: http://Www.findmeglutenfree.com.  They list restaurants with gluten free menu's and options in your area and there are reviews from other celiacs on there to help you figure out the better, safe places to eat.  Great web site!   Although it is optimal to not dine out at first, reality sometimes gets in the way.  I had booked a trip months before I got really sick and would have lost a lot of money if I did not go.  A month after diagnosis, I flew overseas and ate out for dinner only every night.  I ate plain foods but they were well prepared so still quite good. I never got sick.  I was careful and it worked. Luckily, Europe was way more gluten free knowledgeable than the US at that time and still is.  So, it can be done if you are very careful!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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,
