Hunger Pains

Just a tiny TMI alert...

Today has been a weird day. Apparently, I was glutened by my tapioca (maybe it was the strainer I used, my sister cooked the not so gluten free rice pasta and used it) so yesterday I felt discomfort and unusual bloating. Today, a minor part of my stools was loose, had a foul smell and there were bits of food (ew :blink:). And I feel so hungry!

Since I was glutened, I decided to keep the diet very light. To breakfast, I had a tall glass of acerola juice, a scrambled egg and a banana. Two hours later, I felt cramping, and I started going nuts thinking what the hell did I eat to cause me cramping, then turns out it was hunger. Made a light tomato soup, ate a cup of it with passion fruit juice. Two hours later, cramping. It was hunger. Half of a cup of the soup, an apple. Two hours later, the same damn thing. Ate another banana, a glass of guava juice. And again. Another scrambled egg, another apple. Now it won't make even a couple of hours I ate this last meal and I'm hungry again, with cramping and all. Will make a glass of caj

If that's all I ate, I'd be starving, too. I'd go for that nice juicy gluten-free hamburger!!! laugh.gif

Maybe I missed it in a previous post, but is there a reason you need or want to stay at or under 1,000 calories a day?

I'd say phooie on the 1k calorie thing and go for it (if you don't have a medical reason to do so).

You could also eat more often with less meals. Thats what i generally do.

I actually end on 1000 cals by chance. I eat normally and use a calorie counter app on my phone as a food log, and I put the exact quantities and everything. It always end up 1000 or less, and usually I have only three or four major meals... Today was an exception because I thought my tummy would be upset. It is not, gladly :P

I am definitely concerned because I have swimming and dance classes, and I am underweight already (92 pounds at 5'3) but I just didn't find the right foods yet. Right now, I tried to cut the salad of my plate at lunch to eat more meat, rice and beans but then I reached 1000. Before, I'd stay at 800 or 900 at best.

Maybe meat is the solution...

I definitely think you need more protein and good fats. Your body is telling you something...you're starving!!!

Exactly! Also, can you eat tree nuts? They're loaded in protien.

I used to eat cashews, then I reacted to them as well (it wasn't CC, I tend to react to things when I eat them a lot and too frequently, learned the lesson <_< ) so I'm thinking of introducing some brazilian nuts and almonds now.

Will try to make a recipe of honey and lemon cupcakes without baking powder and with whole foods only to see if I get along well with them.

I have to agree that you are definitely not eating enough. Honestly though, after I've had a glutening incident I find that for several days I have very severe stomach cramps. They are quite similar to the pain I'll get after not eating for days, and I've found only one thing helps. Constant snacking. The only relief I get is to keep something, anything, in my stomach. From sunup to sundown I will keep something I can munch on within arms reach and start stuffing my face the minute I feel the pain again. I don't personally have a lot of protein options so I like to do things like hard boiled eggs and fresh veggies with some dip. Or I'll even do cheese if you can do dairy. I probably only eat 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of something at a time but it's enough to keep my stomach from gnawing on my spine.

That's what I'm doing basically... I snack every couple of hours or so right now. Hmm... Carrots :lol:

And you're eating a lot of low energy-density foods. The don't have many calories for their size and ability to fill you up. Which is great for some people, but not so great if you're needing the calories (and sustained energy) to keep your blood sugar up.

Fruit juice is very high in natural sugar. It has as much sugar as soda. It might make you spike and then crash needing nourishment. I agree also that high protein and good fats would be helpful. Without coconut, olive oil, or butter, I am hungry again shortly thereafter.

If you react to things after eating them a lot or too frequently it might be because you are salicylate sensitive. Salicylates build up in your system. Pistachios are a good example. I can eat ten or twelve at a sitting, and only once a week. Any more than that and I have a reaction. Most nuts are high in sals. Walnuts are generally safe though. How do you do with berries? They are all very high in sals. Do you have trouble with them? Check out salicylatesensitivity.com for more info.

Yeah, all that juice is cranking your blood sugar all over the place. I don't even drink any kind of juice anymore, I just eat the fruit. With cheese. You really need more calorie dense foods, soup and apples and juice just aren't going to cut it.

Avocados, nuts, olive oil, potatoes, sweet potatoes, all winter squashes, MEAT. These things will help keep you full.

So yes, to answer your question, shut up and eat a hamburger.

But my juice is just the blended fruit with water... :huh:

Bartfull, I don't think I'm salicylate sensitive. My father told me the other day I have a leaky gut since a child and it does cause random intolerances... Though I will sure pay attention to sals now, to see if it might have something to do with it.

And yes, everything noted down. Olive oil, nuts, meat. And eat more :P

Using the whole fruit is a very good thing, but having just straight liquid fruit is still going to jerk your blood sugar all over the place. When not combined with fiber, fat, and protein, it's pretty much the equivalent of having a soda every time, when it comes to your blood sugar levels. Yes, there's lots of good nutrients in there, but they'd be outweighed by the damage you're doing with the blood sugar spikes and the resulting insulin flush. Insulin is pretty rough on the human body. So a smoothie with whole yogurt (if you can have dairy) and protein powder and some flax seed along with that fruit will do you much better. If dairy's a no-no you might try coconut milk. Very tasty in smoothies!

I will try that, for sure! Yeah, dairy does no good to me, but I already used coconut milk in recipes and felt just fine.

    • Weird things people have said
      You are right Dania, you cannot have "mild Coelic" disease and you cannot eat "a bit of gluten here and there" if you've been gluten free for a while. Coelic disease is a lifetime commitment to being gluten free, even if you don't have symptoms, it is still damaging the villi in the gut, which can lead to more serious health problems, (not that Coelic disease is not serious, because it is).  Some people may question whether it is safe to use the same colander as those cooking gluten, but it depends how well it is washed up as it is quite easy to miss bits. Personally, I bought a new one and I would definitely not use the same sieve as the mesh is far too tight not to collect  small amounts of gluten. I'm not too surprised at doctors not knowing all they should know about Coelic disease, it's the same here in the UK where Coelic UK actually advise doctors on the disease.

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.
    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
