What Happens If You 'backslide'

I have been doing my best to conciously avoid gluten since Jan 01, and its starting to pay off. This past Saturday night, I was socialising, and had quite few beers before I realised they were a no no. They loosened me up enough to have some gluten snacks.

I am back on the wagon now, but was this a major setback in terms of hurting my system, or not so bad. Today,(Tuesday) I feel OK and the belly has gone back to softening up and not being as distended. Thanks

It's a process - don't worry about it. Stay on the wagon and good luck!

I did that in November. I was on vacation and feeling great for the first time in forever (I had been under a TON of stress at work, and being in an awesome hotel on the beach just melted it all away). We were there for a wedding and were feeling pretty good when we got back to the hotel - someone ordered a pizza and I just couldn't help myself. The next day, I decided "well since I already did that, might as well have a breakfast sandwich too"!! It was fantastic, but I paid for it. I don't have a lot of GI symptoms...but the week after I got back from vacation, I was exhausted, anxious, depressed, muscles hurt, etc. Took almost 3 weeks to feel better and I still don't feel as good as I did before I did that to myself. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm sure we've all been there once or twice. But we all have to think about the bigger picture too...even if we don't FEEL bad after eating gluten, doesn't mean it's not doing it's damage. One day at a time right?? :)

If you're gluten intolerant I doubt you did any harm, other than the short-term effects. If you're celiac every time you consume gluten you give your body the opportunity to develop different auto-antibodies. We tend towards autoimmunity and gluten really seems to boost the process. :(

Just keep on trying. The diet really does take some getting used to.

I just did that today lol. I have been doing so well lately on my diet, Been gluten free for 3 years but have had some setbacks every now and then. Well I was out running errands and one of the grocery stores was selling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. They looked so delicious, soft, chocoately. I wanted one so bad. I picked up the box ad put it down multiple times before finally walking away.....Only to walk back by the stand 10 minutes later on my way to check out and picked up the box :/ and ate one in the car on my way home. Now an hour later my tummy is distended, cramping, nausea, belly ache, GI issues, etc. Was it worth it?? NOPE!!! and I am so mad that I did that when I was doing so well, but it happens and I will pay for it for awhile but do my best not to fall back into temptation of yummy doughnuts lol

Kinnikinnick makes chocolate-covered gluten-free donuts. :) There is very little I would want to eat that I can't find gluten-free. It makes it much easier.

Not a fan of their doughnuts. Too cake-like and I have never been a fan of cake-like doughnuts... No more Krispy Kreme for me though, threw the box away when I got home lol

Keep trying good gluten-free brands until you're less tired and can bake your own. You'll just stay hypo and tired if you cave in and eat gluten - but you know that. :P I prefer Rudi's or Schar to Udi's.

I personally love UDIS bread, I live on their products. To me it tastes like the real thing. My cousin loves Rudi's Bread though and it is quite tasty as well. Hope you find a bread you love. I used to love hot warm loaves of bread and do still miss them, but keep trying and you will find a replacement you love.

When you get to a point where you can handle making something, the King Arthur gluten-free mixes are good. You can make a loaf, then slice and freeze so you can have it on hand. It's not the same as gluten bread, but it's pretty good in my opinion. I also like Namaste bread mix. They're easier than making your own, and they come out reliably well.
