As the primary definition (not colloquial use) of diet is "food habitually consumed", I say diet. The same way, when I talk about my dog's (or, in the past, my bird's) diet, I'm not referring to a weight loss approach. Same way, when I tell my toddler, "a cow's diet consists primarily of hay" and I'm not referring to putting a cow on a diet. 'Cause I like using terms properly and all. :P

And I hate 'lifestyle' because there is something in that word that implies 'choice' and we have none when it comes to gluten.

Fantastic, Takala! :lol:

Okay everyone.....Try and recall ROBIN LEACH's voiceover....remember that?? Hear him say this:

TONIGHT 's episode ON "LIfestyles of the celiac housewives who dream they can swap their hubs out for cabana boys and nibble on the fingers of KAREN"....we examine the ways we negotiate this "lifestyle" while driving a bus, hopping a train and washing down the contaminated shelves of the grocery aisles while trying not to slap silly the idiots who only THINK they know what a Gluten Free "diet" really means.

No. But Bartfull has cookies. All aboard!!! We're going on a road trip.

This is my biggest challenge some days also. Or sometimes not slapping people for about 100 other stupid reasons. Mostly I just have the urge to slap people a lot.

Is that why we don't have our muumuus yet? Or did you think we would forget?

" most definitely....Indicative of celiac housewives and the NEW gluten free lifestyle"

inability to take responsibility and blaming others seems to be a symptom of this new" gluten-free lifestyle" and I blame Karen for it....

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
