Because we always wait for our opinions to be solicited. B)

And so far we are on the fourth page and going strong.

Here's what the OED has to say:

LIFESTYLE

"lifestyle (a) a person's basic character as established early in childhood which governs his or her reactions and behaviour; (B) an individual's or group's way of life; a way or style of living; " :)

DIET

1 Food; esp. one's habitual food. Freq. with specifying word.

M. W. Montagu Herbs or roots…and plain dry bread. That is their lenten diet.

†2 A manner of life; a way of living or thinking

So, I guess you takes your pick :rolleyes:

So wanting to slap people is a lifestyle?

:lol: :lol: well, for Addy it seems to be ......at this moment in her "life style" .

The problem with rigid definitions is "application"

..."Gluten free" was NOT established early in my childhood (I did not even know what that was)

so it could not have had a significant impact on my basic character or my behavior

or maybe I would have had a different LIfe ? and er ....um" llifestyle"

This ":lifestyle" I have had to adopt was thrust upon me .....ergo, this definition does not fit me.

The term "diet" seems more apropos, at least in my case, perhaps. I guess I am "old school" .

And this is where I am came in....

Well... at least I refrain from actual slapping! And yes, imaginary slapping is a lifestyle.

I could think of a few, but none I can repeat here. (I haven't had positive interactions.)

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.

Gluten Free Lifestyle Sounds Like We Are Doing A Reality Show In the Whole Feuds Aisle !

Cabana boys... ladyfingers... mmm...

And then people ask me what I like in this forum.

BUT! I have put my Barnardo's thinking hat, and pulled out my Latin dictionary and my philological training:

DIET (via Old French) < Latin diæta (in medieval Latin di&#275;ta), < Greek δ&#943;αιτα ‘mode of life’

The old dead folks are laughing their pants off at all of us debating whether gluten-free is a δ&#943;αιτα or a δ&#943;αιτα. :lol:

However, they also knocked on my door, asking if we still had some cabana boys available. :ph34r:

How about gluten free life? As long as this heavily implies cabana boys I could live with that.

Nice crab by the way.

I find a sharp jab tempts me more than a slap. Imaginary of course :)

What the...? Are you serious? People do it to lose weight? If anything, it has the opposite effect; at least it did so on me, and even if that didn't help with my having to drop +25 lbs, at least it made me feel less of an invalid, and I don't have to plan my routes around ladies rooms anymore. I think that idea only applies to people who eat tons of junk, and since a lot of junk is not gluten-free, and gluten-free junk costs an eye and a kidney, the simply clean up their eating act. <_<

I would like not to be serious... But they basically just go clean and low carb. There was even one girl who said she scraped the cheese out of a pizza because there wasn't any gluten free food around in miles.

The cheese of a pizza.

She then added about being one of the gluten free perks of hers.

:rolleyes:

I think lifestyle applies because it goes beyond diet. At least for us. In our case it wasn't celiac but gluten and wheat intolerance. And if my daughter got those things on her skin, she got a rash. So we had to eliminate them totally from her life.

no, I was kidding the Capt. about asking this question and inspiring more pages of responses.

I was just joshing him. ;)

But I see that dieticians get "mixed reviews" from the troops.

From what I hear, I think our friends in Canada, the UK and NZ and Aus have better luck with helpful dieticians than those who are called "nutritionists" in the US.

But to answer the Capt.'s question:

A " gluten free lifetsyle-ician " is a bit clunky for a title. But I have seen "gluten free lifestyle coaches" advertise their services.

:mellow: hmm....don't most of us offer that for free right on here?

All of the above. Also: endless discussion on a distinction without a difference.

I am going to adapt a version of this thread next semester when I teach my classes on humane food policies.

:D:lol: You all have spent too much time in the malls or with 24-7 Christmas carrols... you're cracking! :P

Maybe we should just take back the title of "Picky Eater" and be done with it... If you tell someone you're a picky eater there isn't much they can say to that except, "oh." ;)

I just came back from a kids Xmas party where we could only eat corn chips... this thread fixed my mood right up. :D Thanks.

    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do. 
    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!  
    • That's hard.  You can try the "I come to be social,"  "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable.  I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy.  Do go, have fun.  Don't let food stop you.  Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it.
