How are you guys making your own popcorn with olive oil? That sounds really good! I have an air popper, but the popcorn has absolutely no flavor, so I don't eat it very often.

I'm so very sorry.

For your information, my brother's blood work and endoscopy came back normal. But if he eats gluten, he gets quite sick. I'd trust your body's response far more than I would a test. And you can't just go gluten light -- you have to be completely gluten-free at *LEAST* 3 weeks before you may notice a change. It took me 2 weeks initially to feel better, and then by 3 weeks it was a big change.

Tough one. The manager may understand food intolerances, but does the rushed waiter earning $2 an hour?

I have been contaminated at many restaurants. It is hit or miss.

If you feel adventurous, I would try ordering plain, white rice, steam veggies and steamed chicken. Make it very clear that you need clean pots and pans each time, and speak with the manager.

Or, if you don't feel adventurous, sneak in your own food and order a soda if you want.

If you feel backed in a corner, tell the manager you want a signed, dated note that his food will not make you sick. Tell him your lawyer will keep it on file. Although, that might get you kicked out. ;)

I personally have a doctor's note that says I must carry food with me, but so far I have not had to use it. I have carried banana bread into restaurants before, but never a whole meal.

In Topic: Can Not Stop Gaining Weight!

My personal advice is to cut way, way, way down on processed foods.

Right now I'm eating meats cooked from scratch, veggies, fruits, rice cakes for snacks, nuts, peanut butter and honey and I'm losing weight very nicely -- without being hungry. In fact, I don't even limit the quantities I can eat. If I'm hungry, I just have a healthy snack.

I have lost 60 pounds from my pre-diagnosis weight.

Eliminate prepackaged gluten-free food. Stop the candy. If you drink regular soda, cut that out, too.

Cookies can be made GFCFSF. Natural peanut butter (no soy), 1 cup sugar, 1 egg, some vanilla. Mix and form into small balls. 375 degrees for 12-18 minutes. Super quick, super easy, yummy. Dip in powdered sugar is desired.

Make pie. Here's the crust recipe: http://www.glutenfre...mp;#entry362899. You can use any filling you desire. I haven't made a chocolate pie, but I don't see why you couldn't from cocoa and rice or coconut milk.

Jocolate bars from the Lara Bar people.

Mike Ikes are GFCFSF.

BTW, I like rice milk FAR better than soy milk anyway.

Make your own Cool-Whip from coconut milk.

Frozen bananas or fruit bars.

Baked fruit. Take an apple, add brown sugar and cinnamon and raisins. Bake 325 for 15-20 minutes or so.
