Republic of Doyle, Little Britain, Hell's Kitchen, and Eat Street.

Eat Street never came on until I discovered I could access more American channels on my box.

I'm not a big TV person. I do like some of the court shows and some cooking shows. I really like the cooking/food shows on PBS. But I also like Chopped, Master Chef and Hell's Kitchen. I also like Restaurant Impossible and Hotel Impossible. And I like Hoarders/Hoarding.

And I like Hoarders/Hoarding.

What is it about that show? I don't go looking for it, but when it's on, I can't stop watching . . . maybe it just makes me feel better about the amount of clutter that I have :ph34r:

Project Runway and Top Chef.

Remakes don't always live up to the original, but this is really good. I think you and your mom would enjoy it :)

Dallas is like crack (hubs just leaves the room). Am loving The Newsroom. Wish they'd bring back Torchwood. Boss is back - i love it - Kelsey Grammar is excellent.

And let's not forget True Blood. Now that they've completely departed from the books I see it differently - and Russell Edgington is sooo good at being BAD.

DEXTER IS AMAZING!!! Can't wait for season 6 to come out on DVD - I dont have Showtime so I cant watch it when every one else does! I'm also a huge "Friends" fan and can watch it for hours on end without getting sick of it...

Shameless, Dexter, Big C - Showtime addicts here - Weeds was on the list until this season -- it's their last - maybe should have ended a bit earlier.

Dr. Who, Falling Skies, Eureka's first seasons, Firefly

Yeah. I think... We may live in a dump. But it's not that bad!

I've never seen Project Runway. My mom watches that.

Another Dexter fan here. I had to drop Showtime a while ago but they usually have a 'free' weekend before the fall season starts and I plan a day just to watch the whole last season one show after the other. When I win the lottery I want to get the whole series on DVD.

I also really like 'Being Human' both the BBC and American versions. Supernatural is also good. I don't usually watch crime dramas, I've lived to many, but Bones draws me in every now and then.

I never get tired of watching The Big Bang Theory and love reruns of Andy Griffith.

How could I have forgotten Modern Family. The characters are great. I like the big guy, can't remember his name, who used to a clown the best.

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • Pastry chain goes gluten-free, using mangoes ... But gluten is also believed to cause celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy, ... View the full article
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
