I Need Serious Help!
Posted 05 June 2012 - 11:45 AM
I guess I struggle with all of this because I'm such a picky eatter I'm a vegitarian so my meal/food options are limited and feel like I'm eatting the same thing repeatedly.
The rest of my family eats gluten so it's too easy to fall off. I try to buy things that I do not like for them so the temptation is not there.
I wish that there was a test that sys "yes" this is what you have. I feel mental. Sigh. Thanks for listening,

THIS is your PROOF that it's not "all in your head."
Ask yourself what you would be doing if you were not sick all the time.
Consider changing your diet to reflect what you need, not what you think you need. Vegetarian is designed for grain eaters, and is frequently too high carbohydrate and too starchy for gluten intolerants, especially if they have blood sugar issues, shown by cravings, then crashing and burning after consumption of too many high carb grain products.
Find a gluten free calcium and magnesium supplement, and a gluten free B complex, to help with the cravings.
