My boyfriend of about a year just up and left me yesterday. This is my first breakup while being gluten free, so this may be an odd question, but when you've had to go through this and you don't have your old, gluten filled, comfort food, that things did/have you eaten that has comforted you during this crappy time? I know you're not supposed to eat for comfort but sometimes, you just gotta. Any ideas?

Ice cream? Fritos? Snickers? Plenty of junk foods that are gluten-free.

Sorry for the breakup. Concentrate on what you want to do now.

Exercise. Reading. Friends. Movies. New hobbies.

It doesn't HAVE to be food. The last breakup I had (after I found out he had been cheating on me, so there was anger mixed in with the heartbreak), I LOST my appetite. I filled my days with the above, and when I couldn't sleep at night I just got up and read or played my guitar until I finally felt sleepy.

I'm sorry you are hurting but I encourage you to turn this into a positive experience. Go get your hair done. Buy some new clothes or new makeup. This is your chance for a new you. Grab it.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Red wine and good cheese got me through my last breakup...two things my body seems to be rejecting now, but that's besides the point. I cheated once (ONCE) after my breakup and ate regular pizza - I gotta tell you, it tasted good, but not THAT good. Made me ten times more depressed and I couldn't get out of bed for a day (and I never sleep like that). Totally not worth it - will only make you feel worse. Use this time to really improve your diet since you only have yourself to feed and cook/shop for. Bury your face in a potato chip bag for a week or two and then off to the gym!! Nothing gets the anger out like running - I'm a TERRIBLE runner, so when I do, that's the only thing I can focus on. Helps get the weeds out of the brain for a bit :-) Feel better!!

gluten-free Granola and lots of positive thoughts. It's his loss so please don't punish yourself by falling off the gluten-free wagon. I read a lot of books by Louise Hay. Some are affirmations, others are wisdom. And we're all here to support you and be your safety net.

Sending healing {{{HUGS}}} and lots of love,

Oh trust me, I never thought for a minute to eat gluten. I wasn't meaning that, lol. I was just wondering since all my OLD comfort food for a break up was ALL gluten, so I was trying to figure out some that AREN'T gluten. I'd totally go to a gym, but I have no job, so no money, and I live with the rents still, so I still cook & shop for the house. I have been taking this break up A LOT better than I thought I would have. Actually going out, seeing friends and focusing on myself and my goals, which for me, during a big break up, is AMAZING. :} Thanks guys <3
