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.

    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
