It definitely makes you feel "lighter" if that makes sense. I didnt feel weighed down like I did after eating a bowl of brown rice or rice pasta. I hope it works for you! Let us know how you're doing and if it helps!!!

After another horrible day yesterday, and a rough start today, I am officially paleo/primal! I'll keep you all posted, I truly hope this is the answer for me and my body. :)

I have a feeling that it's going to make you feel a whole lot better - you just seem to hear/feel your body telling you "Ok, THIS is what I wanted all along!!" Remember to put butter on everything!!! (Thats the most fun part for me) - I'll add you as a friend and let me (and the rest of us) know how you're doing!!! I give it three days and you'll be back on here with a new outlook on life.... :)

I sure hope so!! Butter...that makes me laugh, as I have never put butter on anything! Maybe I'll try it!! :) I am also going to call my doctor today to make sure there isn't something else they should test me for...better safe than sorry! Thank you for the encouragement, looking forward to this! Day 2, here I come!! :P

Yes! Butter your steak too!

The only thing I don't put butter on is bacon.

Bacon needs no help. :D

Too funny!! I've made it (almost) through 2 days...my only complaint is I constantly feel hungry, and have low energy (which unfortunately is nothing new)...perhaps tomorrow will be better!

From my understanding you can eat as much as you want on the primal diet - a handful of nuts (cashews, pistachios) will fill me up and hold me over for a while. I always keep cheese, pumpkin seeds, beef jerky, and apple slices with me too when I'm at work. How much are you eating? Do you think you're not eating enough since you are still healing from your not-so-good couple of days last week?

I feel like I eat ALL day!! :P I'm a big snacker, so I find myself munching non-stop, on something! I brought more chicken for lunch today in hopes that it fills me up longer than what I had yesterday. I also had horrible stomach aches and D yesterady morning so that didn't help feeling so hungry. I'm giving up cheese for a while to see if that is a culprit in the bad days...I'm hoping not, as I could live on the stuff. Today will be better!! :D

I'm doing it too :) Really no other way to eat and once goal weight is reached it's an 80/20 deal. Raw milk is illegal here in Ohio too but we have raw milk cheese and as long as it's grass fed that's what I get. I buy pasteurized but Non homogonized grass fed milk. It tastes no different and is much better for you. Some people use some dairy and a lot use none. I think it's individual.

I do crave chips and tortillas though...the rest is easy, because it's how I would normally eat anyway! I don't drink much milk so that's no loss...just the cheese. After I get adjusted to this and see what the results are, I'll throw cheese back in - maybe even try to find a "raw" healthier brand!

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
