I realy cant understand some people behaviour ...i was with a friend,we were eating together(i had my gluten free food wille she was eating a big mac hamburger cheesburger..i didnt understand very well what was it but it had such an awfull smell)She offered me forgetting i can't eat it ...the following dialogue took place

Me - Shall i open the window because of the smell?

Her - Yes ...is it smelly?

Me - Yes very much .

Her- Well ...i know its a garbage but i realy love it i could never stop eating it

Isn't it weird that she called her food garbage but she could never stop eating it??? This is crazy...realy i mean ..o.k maybe someone doesnt know that the food is unhealthy....but what kind of sane person whould know that a food is garbage and whould continioue eating it??? I know i dont have the right to judge anyone ...i mean if someone wants to eat stinky smelly full of chemicals products its his own right but...HEY!!! Why do we have the brain??? If you know something is unhealy and you eat it beaucse you cant stop ...well that means that you became addictid to it..and thats one more reason to stop eating it....Does anyone hear about addiction to fruits or to vegetables or to meat??? Fast food,junk food is not food..it looks like food but its not.

It's because people get addicted to all of the flavor enhancers, chemicals, fat and sugar in those processed foods. The companies who make those "foods" add stuff to them to get people to keep eating them.

I know smoking is bad for me, but I haven't quit yet. Junk food is the same way. I used to LIVE on junk food. I LOVED it! I knew they SAID it was bad for me, but it hadn't killed me yet, so I just ignored the warnings and continued to eat, yes, garbage.

I can't stand the smell of it anymore either. If people could get away from it for just a few months, I think most would never go back to it.

No kidding! I'm a recovering food addict, with a very strong remedy! :huh:

This past summer my fam dropped cable tv and picked up Netflix. My husband got in a mood while I was vacationing with the kids and started watching documentaries on Food Habits. When I returned he had me sit and watch one or two with him. "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" started it off for me. Then there was Food, Inc. followed by one that talks about the beverages we drink that come in plastic containers (which dissolve into the drink before we even purchase it), and an entire slew of other videos that twisted my brain AND my stomach (seriously, seeing a man remove a 'plug' from the side of a living cow :blink: and thrust his hand into the cow's gut while the cow is eating, :o and say it doesn't hurt them???--eeewww). <_<

Ironically, since watching those shows, I'd found I couldn't drop the addictive habit which has become a way of life for so many Americans. I tried...lasted only 3 days for the juice diet, felt great, but old habits tend to be ingrained and I was back at the grease-joint, suckin down the liquid sugar.

Then in November, the most embarrassing thing happened. :unsure: I got the most severe case of... hemorrhoids! :blink: Oh my, I didn't know docs operated on them, seriously, who talks about that stuff!? So...in I went for surgery (after 3 drs said they weren't going to touch me and referred me off to the next specialist!) to remove internals and externals the size of my dr's thumb! :huh: (The cause: Two back-to-back days of Sonic's Chili Coneys with a side of cheese tots and a soda, just to ease a craving!). Spent an extra night in the hospital because of the pain (and night nurse was only permitted to give me ONE dose of morphine!) :blink: I laugh about it all now, but ooooh! if that isn't a life changer!

For one entire week I could only handle taking in apple juice (yes, out of that dreaded dissolving plastic bottle). I didn't dare have a bm, and since it takes up to 3 mos or more to heal I'm still scared of that natural part of living! :blink:

The forum for these operations mentions that most people will return to the diet that caused them. Sure enough, I'm one...but!...oddly now, I can't stand french fries--they taste like salted cardboard coated in grease. Anything greasy makes my mouth hurt, and my gums itch. Soda, chips, and many candies now cause my tongue and throat to swell and I suddenly develop sinus issues and a slight cold! I don't dare touch anything with gluten as it requires a chaser of a very large dose of a laxative (and cancellation of all activities the next day!). <_< I still go to those junk food havens, but I found, I don't eat like I used to! I opt for salads with no dressing (what is IN those??); baked potato over fries; and I choose chicken over beef, even though they are both deep fried there is just something about beef at fast food that makes me feel blah! and I can't swallow it (even steak!). And I've switched from soda (with an occasional child size when out/about that takes me all day to down) to tea and filtered water which is now always at my side. :D

And the smell. It turns my stomach so that I'm just not interested in eating. The smell of fresh baked gluten-bread will turn my stomach some days, but I feel hungry after smelling it (have to retrain the brain; it's all a mess!).

This is what our country has come to. We are so trusting that we don't question what is put on a plate in front of us. We are a country of addicts, but we are stubborn addicts and don't like to be told what is/isn't healthy for us. :angry:

Sometimes it takes a surgery in a certain part of the body <_< to make ya change your ways because ya really, REALLY become aware of what you eat! :blink: (I wouldn't wish that surgery on my worst enemy!!) :unsure:

Glad you vented! I agree. We have become accustomed to eating "garbage".

My husband and I were out and I had to go to the bathroom really badly and the only place around was a Burger King. I ran in there to the bathroom and the bathroom actually smelled better than the restaurant.

It truly is garbage...Expensive garbage.

I love that you shared your experience in the hospital! That is really food for thought!!! :P I'm sure it wasn't easy to share that and I'm so thankful that you did. I eat insanely healthy (a "nutritarian" diet, wholly plant-based) but I do get tempted from time to time to eat something I shouldn't. (Cheese is a nasty temptress!) Now I will think of your experience and it will help me behave!

I thought you and the OP might be interested in looking up Dr. Doug Lisle and his ideas about "The Pleasure Trap". It explains why human beings get addicted to fat, sugar and salt. It is truly fascinating!

I also loved Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and Food Inc. Have you seen Vegucated, Planeat or Forks Over Knives yet? They are absolutely worth your time. As is Earthlings, though that one is hardcore.

90% of people KNOW most of the food you get in any fast food place is bad for them and they continue to eat it. I live, eat and breath food because of food allergies and Celiac in my child. I know what too much and the wrong things do to a persons body. Has it changed the way I eat? To a point. I still get Whoppers when I go to Burger King. Sure, I know better but it's also my choice.

No reason to judge others for what they eat.

I also know plenty of Dr's, nurses and other medic professionals who smoke or drink to much. It's life.

McDonald's puts a bunch of sugar in their hamburger buns to make their food more addictive. There is even sugar in the french fries. :blink:

Who knows. I've never eaten a Big Mac and have never wanted to. Not only do they smell bad but they look and sound bad too.

    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Following my official diagnosis of celiac disease I went gluten free many weeks ago, but I have noticed absolutely no improvement in my health since.  I still get a plethora of muscle aches and pains almost constantly, I still feel tired, I still get lots of headaches and I still feel very foggy.  Is this normal? I see health sites suggesting some symptoms go within a few days of the diet while others take a bit longer but I have had no improvement whatsoever.  Thanks
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      According to endoscopy report, i'm parasites free. but i have high IgG to candida albican, which may indicate recent or current infection with it. i spoke with my doctor, his reply was like forget about candida or SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth, they only appear in immunocompromised patients! 
    • Italian pasta
      Hi! You will have no problems to eat safe in Italy! Food labeling is much better in Europe  (you can fully rely on labels, they list everything). The only wheat celiacs can have is gluten free wheat starch, used in Schär products and many swedish ones. As italian cuisine is based on pasta and bread, there are a lot of gluten free options, most restaurants are aware of celiacs. All kids age 6 in Italy are screened for celiac. You will find lots of options on glutenfreeroads.com   Enjoy your trip!!
    • Continued Symptoms
      Since she is back on the charts her doctor is generally pleased with her condition. I don't know that I've made it clear enough how persistent and ongoing some of this is for her. She improved so dramatically when we made her gluten free, but there are these couple of nagging issues. I'm beginning to wonder if she has some other food sensitivity... Regarding the speech - we homeschool, will the public schools evaluate her anyway?
    • Italian pasta
      My wife and I are traveling to Italy in October and will be eating authentic food over there obviously. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten and extremely celiac. I have heard rumors that people that are celiac don't have the reaction to the wheat pasta in Italy due to the processing of the wheat is different than that of the states. I am curious how much truth to this there is and if anyone has had any experience with this issue or recommendations as to what to avoid. I've never been outside the states and am fearful that I won't be able to eat over there haha

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
