: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.

Oh no,no no.!!! ..."Picky eaters" are just giant pains in the buttocks.

I refuse to be thought of as THAT!

I eat anything!

and honestly, I never go to malls, I swear, so my "cracked behavior" -- must just be "me"..

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you were a little sharper than that and would figure it out on your own. After all, you said you'll eat anything. I was referring to the distinct possibility of being a giant pain in the buttocks.

Please excuse me while I collect my butt and make a hasty exit!!

I can't leave you girls alone for 5 minutes.....

I am LOVING the idea of declaring myself a picky eater. I think if anyone asks, I would say I do it mostly for the attention.

Duck :)

oh, whew, for a second there, I thought you considered me a picky eater.... :lol:

If you read the sentence, I said I refused to be thought of a picky eater (because they are pains in the buttocks).

and I refuse to be thought of as THAT. i.e. a picky eater.

if you consider me a pain in the buttocks, well, I guess I'll take that as a compliment?

as I am in very good company around here....just saying.... ;)

Disturbingly, YES. :rolleyes:

Oops...I didn't see the END!...just wanted to add one more hilarious story! :P

:lol: :lol: :lol: Yes, it is what people debate over! Hilarious!

For me, I went into a Restaurant that I have had "good luck" with on not getting gluttened! In the table right behind me, was a woman talking blah, blah, blah about being allergic to Gluten....then orders the *highly glutened French Fries*--which the menu clearly states that they are *not* gluten free. The waitress reminded her of this and she actually said, "Oh, they will be OK for me to eat"...

Is she on the hippity hop gluten-free diet? Yes..... Sorry IH, but for me it is a gluten-free lifestyle--without the swapping! :D:lol:

since the context of "Trendy" back then --when he used it sarcastically --meant the same as it means today? I say "once trendy, always trendy." (in the sardonic sense, of course)

You realize....that this means you're "trendy" too, right? :lol:

I am not going to get in a battle over word usage with you. I will not only lose, but ultimately go down in flames, spiraling to an epic and tragic end. I will simply admit that sometimes, just as I let my mouth get away without my brain, I let my fingers get away without my brain. Or possibly I have misplaced my brain altogether. At any rate, it seemed funny at the time. :lol:

I still think you are literally the last person I know who I would want to debate (even hysterically) the proper meaning or usage of words with. I'll just let it go that trendy then is trendy now. Even if by that logic I should be able to be cool wearing bell bottoms. :P

    • Gluten challenge. Random reactions of gluten sensitivity (brain fog)
      hi all, I have brain fog and I suspect that is due to gluten sensitivity.  When I became aware of those symptoms in the past, I did an elimination diet, and gluten introduction  seemed to correlate with the perceived brain fog Then, I was off gluten for a year, but because it is self-diagnosed it is not always easy to explain it and remain 100% gluten free when, for example, travelling or invited to someone's house for dinner. So, I thought I wanted to get to the bottom of this and check for celiac decease first. I have been doing a gluten challenge for the last 4 weeks, and my symptoms are very strange. Sometimes, I eat a slice of cake or a croissant and I can be tired and foggy for the whole day.  Strangely,  there are other times where i can eat bread or a full pizza and have no symptoms at all. Beer is strange, sometimes it affects me, sometimes it does not at all... I am not sensitive to Pasta so far... I am very confused. I thought that maybe it was because the consumed gluten quantity but there does not seem to be any correlation at all. Sometimes, I think that it has to be something else (not the gluten) that is causing those reactions. I cannot understand the random reaction to gluten.  Does anybody have a similar experience or an insight or what could be going on? Thanks!!!    
    • I got WELL!!
      It sounds like things are looking up for you. Happy dance, happy dance! Happy Valentines Day!
    • Help understanding test results??
      I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.   Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!   Hang in there!    
    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
