What Does A Whole Foods Diet Include?
0

5 posts in this topic

I can not get over the being glutened feeling. With that said, I think I may go on a whole foods diet. I can't do dairy so thats out. I know the obvious things like meat, fruit and veg but what about things like lunch meats and bacon and condiments like ketchup?

Also what about coffee, tea and juices?

I just want to feel better. Something is getting me over and over. I cant figure it out.

I wouldn't do the lunchmeats or bacon. You could make your own condiments. I know it's a pain, but Mom did it. When I was strictly whole foods, I still didn't give up my coffee. But you have had problems with corn in the past, right? So if you do tea, try to get loose tea. I make mine in a French press.

Juices should be OK, but they really aren't good for you. The fiber from fruit is what makes fruit good for you and there's no fiber in juice.

It sounds to me that there might be other intolerances going on. You have given up gluten and dairy. Maybe ditch the nightshades for a while? Try rice, meat, veggies and fruit only for a while. I know it stinks to limit yourself so much, especially at the holidays when everyone around you is pigging out, but if it makes you feel better it'll be worth it.

Hope you're feeling better soon. ((((HUGS))))

Try eliminating nightshades, and if that doesn't work out, try eliminating grains. Whole foods are about not processed, so use natural herbs to make tea instead of sachets. It's possible to bake cakes and sweets with whole foods. My favorite treat is a chocolate ice cream made out with only bananas, a bit of water, whole cocoa powder and brown sugar.

I agree with no lunch meat. Bacon may be ok if you get it directly form a butcher, or other ways to get it minimally processed. Otherwise skip it.

When I eat really strict my condiments of choice are yellow mustard and hot sauce (sometimes together, sometimes not). Very few ingredients and I think gluten free. IMHO, if you can handle ketchup. and its the worst thing you eat, then your doing pretty good. Still, ketchup is full of garbage (just read the label), so you'd be better off making your own or avoiding it.

Whole foods are those that aren't processed. Many processed foods have corn syrup added. Corn is usually GMO, and can cause problems for many of us. I stay away from anything that has a possibilty of having GMOs. Gmo foods include: corn, soy, canola, cottonseed, sugar beets, papaya, zuchinni/yellow squash. These foods do not have to be labeled if they are GMO. Just assume it is, unless it's labeled that it's not. Organic fruits and veggies may help you too?

I restricted many foods, but it wasn't until I went completely grain, dairy, and processed sugar free, that I started to feel much better.

Basically, the Paleo diet is a good one to go by. There are a lot of websites/books available with Paleo recipes. Maybe try it for a bit and see if things settle down for you?

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
