Oh man, I am having the worst winter munchies!

I could just eat and eat...I want SWEETS!

There's a box of KA chocolate cake mix in my pantry with my name on it...it would be sooo easy...

Am I the only one that gets like this???

Our winters are extremely long. We usually have snow on the ground 5-6 months and it is certainly not uncommon to have many, many days of

-32F (and much colder). Don't even talk about the awful winds! The coldest I have been in was -65F. NOT GOOD. :angry:

With cold weather I am in the kitchen even more than usual. We grill regularly in the summer but not so much in winter. It would be just asking for death. :o

So, I am with you. In summer I find I am more active and in the winter become sluggish at times and my appetite increases sharply this time of the year. I rarely crave sweets but savoury things instead which can be as calorific (if not more). My goal is not to gain a single pound this winter. In fact, since going gluten free I have lost about 25 pounds which is great. I would like to lose 20 more but I am not focusing on the number - just how I feel. It sure has been nice to have to buy lots of new clothes! :D

I'm in australia so we don't have freezing winters, at least where I live, but this year it pretty much rained all summer (hence all the flooding) so it was pretty cold, for summer at least. Then, if that wasn't enough, it pretty much rained for most of winter.

Rainy days make me crave bad food like KFC nuggets and yummy hot chips.

Well, I think I'm cured.

Made a giant pot of Italian chicken soup ( chop chop chop), some Chebe focaccia, and a KA chocolate cake with buttercream frosting.

3 hours of chopping, mixing, and washing dishes later I was exhausted...

In the summers here I hate to eat - I'm in the desert SW and 100+ degrees makes my stomach turn if I have to stand in front of the stove and get hotter. Lots of salads and BBQ that time of year. So, "cold" is a relative term to us (anything under 60 - we're wimps!).

I am in Canberra, Australia so we are unusual for the foreigners assumptions of Australia. Today is early Dec ie Summer and I am wearing a jumper/coat. We are high altitude and subject to the Antartic / South oceans weather pattern.

I'm hungry :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have been eating like a horse lately! Now I'm in the Northeast U.S. (Philadelphia), so I imagine the temperature dropping may have something to do with it. My body may be telling me I need more insulation! :lol:

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
