Posts I've Made

In Topic: Weight Watchers

Been off line for a while, sorry.

I order my bagels from Kinnikinnick. They are an on line store that has great baked goods. Some stores carry them, they would be in the frozen section. I think Whole Foods has them sometimes.

The chicken tenders are gluten free, just regular ones from Tyson. Tyson doesn't add anything to them. And the Teriyaki sauce is from LaChoy and is gluten free.

Where do you buy the bagels? I've been to Whole Foods & Trader Joe's, but havn't seen gluten free bagels anywhere.

Don't the chicken tenders & the Teriyaki sauce have gluten in them?

Good luck on your weight loss! I've lost 65# altogether, and now am trying to maintain.

Keep in touch!

PG Tips is not a flavored tea. It is black tea in a pyramid shaped tea bag made in England.

The bottom of my box has the Unilever symbol. Unilever is a company that will list any gluten.

I drink it all the time.

In Topic: Numbers Still Elevated?

I can only tell you what my numbers did.

Before gluten free my level was 124. Seven months later it was 5.

Could she be eating gluten that you don't know about? I am not talking about having the kitchen gluten free or new everything. I didn't do that. And I still eat out every week.

But is she in school? Could she be eating something there that she thinks is gluten free but isn't? What about at Grandma's? Or friends house's? I am sure that you know about toasters and cutting boards. But double check that no one else in the house is using the gluten free ones for gluten stuff.

I would also be happy that the numbers are going in the right direction. But I understand that you wished you could see a bigger difference.

I hate to be the wet blanket here, but have you thought about maybe he doesn't want to be tested because he wouldn't change his diet anyway?

Think about how much trouble we all went through the first month or two. I completely cleaned my kitchen. Scrubbed everything down, sectioned off gluten and gluten free, and gave away loads of food. At 72, would he go through that. What about your Mom, she would have to change the way she has cooked for over 44 years.

He is 72. Think of his quality of life.

And no I am not getting this on my own. Dr. Alessio Fasano, the Medical Director of the U of Md Celiac Research center says the same thing. He would seriously question a 72 year old that wanted to be tested. Having him tested would only tell you where it came from.

I have not been a member of Weight Watcher's, but most of my family has. I never had a weight problem until I started eating gluten free.

I am using their information and have been counting points for almost five weeks. And I have lost 11.4lbs. :P My parents are doing it to, and the race is on to see who can lose the most by Christmas. I would like to lose 40lbs total.

One of my most common breakfasts is 1/2 cup Eggbeaters, 1 slice 2% Kraft American and veggies all scrabbled together. I then put salsa on it. Yum. Next is 1/2 a Kinnickinnick bagel with low fat cream cheese. I have yogurt or a banana mid morning.

For dinner I love Tyson's chicken tenders marinaded with LaChoy Teriyaki sauce, a little rice and lots of free veggies.
