Gluten Free, Peanut Free, Egg Free And Now I Have To Cut Out Sugar. What Can I Eat?!
0

3 posts in this topic

I struggle to maintain weight, it has always been hard for me to keep enough weight on. I am stereotypical of the "wasting" part of celiac. I look heaelthier now one year gluten free but as soon as I went off the gluten I dropped weight fast. I struggled to eat enough whole foods to put it on and its just not physically possible for me. Even with three meals a day and snacks in between and eating things like lots of avacados I was still always thin. So, I did the not so great thing and started supplementing high sugar high calorie foods. It works, I have been able to maintain a good weight. Here's the problem - for one, packaged foods make me feel sluggish and not so great and I know they aren't healthy. But for two, my endometriosis has gotten compeltely out of control with my pain level and I keep hearing and reading that cutting out sugars will help this. I am also showing major warning signs of diabetes with blood sugar levels all over the charts. I know that it is time for a change.

What can I eat?! If I cut out the soda and candy that I supplement my diet with to keep my calories up I feel like I'll wither away. I have done the math and the amount of chicken breasts one has to eat to replace two sodas and some candy and snacks is astronomical. I'm so tiny I don't know how I could ever eat that much. But I cannot afford to lose weight, I barely tip the scale at 105 pounds. I am ony 5'1" so this is an acceptable although not ideal size for me but I cannot go any lower!

I need good ideas for upping my calories. I don't tolerate milk well and cannot stand the taste anyway but I am able to have cheese. I am allergic to peanuts and eggs as well.

I always have tried to focus on getting healthy rather than an ideal weight. I make some great shakes with coconut milk and fruit. Coconut oil is very healthy and full of calories. You might also try pouring olive oil on things to up your calorie intake. I use it on veggie sticks and cooked vegetables. Salt makes it more palatable, I think.

I make carob bars with

1 cup coconut oil

1 cup roasted carob powder

1 can coconut milk

2 drops of natural peppermint essential oil

3 cups almond powdered.

Optional sweeter if you require it. I don't

I melt the coconut oil. I turn of the heat and stir in the other ingredients. I pat it into a pie pan and cool. I keep mine in the refrigerater. Eat small bites at a time to avoid the too full feeling for hours.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
