Topics I've Started

Been Eating Wheat Now For A Few Months

04 August 2008 - 09:57 AM

Well I don't know what to say.

I started eating wheat again a few months ago, and basically been eating it everyday.

I guess gluten-free showed me what wheat really can do...

I still think it oddly contributes to depression...but only if I start eating too much of it... I think its just if I eat it too much, and that includes diary too...then it starts clogging me up inside more than my body can clean itself...so I start feeling very stagnant which then can setup depressive feelings. But honestly this has only happened a few times the past few months, and if this happens I know I need to drink some wine, some water... exercise...and just eat cleaner things for the next 4 hours or so...

I am just now more aware of what I'm doing... aware of how it can affect me.

Before I used to just eat wheat almost subconsciously...and dairy... and not only that...but eat it very fast and not even chew it well... most of the time. That is the worst way to eat that stuff...since you can't digest it that way.

So now when I eat dairy or wheat... I just try to eat it very slowly and chew very well...although I've only been doing that the last week or so...it really seems to help. But before when I started eating wheat a few months ago, I would just eat it once a day... drink more wine...drink more fluids and apple cider vinegar...stuff to help clean out the system...

Right now I'm actually trying to eat more raw fruits and veggies...since they digest super well, and don't make you feel any slightest bit tired and make you feel something high in some ways. Its just good. I don't think I'd ever become a raw vegan or anything but I think its good to eat more stuff like that.

Good luck to everyone. I think I'll be okay... but maybe my villi will suddenly go out on me and i'll come crawling back. Haha...but in all honesty I'm glad I went through this journey because at least I have the power of knowledge. I don't think my villi were getting damaged, I just think I may not digest wheat or dairy SUPER well...although I still can digest it. I just have to not be unconscious about my consumption.

Best of luck to you all!!

What Can You Do To Determine If You Have Villi Damage?

19 June 2008 - 07:34 PM

Lets say I can't get a biopsy.

If I got my genes tested would this help me determine if I have villi damage possibly occurring?

For instance, if both of my genes were celiac...that would be a good indicator?

But if they weren't, then I would then know that I DO NOT have villi damage?

Anyone know the answer to this riddle...

Ate A Bunch Of Gluten And Nothing... Questioning And Confused

13 June 2008 - 10:14 AM

Yesterday I felt like testing myself. I ate 5 bowls of special K cereal. 3 granola bars (with wheat). At lunch I had a few small sandwiches with wheat.

I don't know why but I just felt like it. Honestly I have not eaten gluten in probably 6 months. However the past few weeks this is the 2nd time I have dabbled.

So far I don't feel anything. No GI compaints. No mood complaints... at least yet. I'll give it a few more days before eating gluten.

I would hate to think I made this whole thing up somehow. But I remember "testing" this before with, it seems, real symptoms...

Maybe I would need to eat gluten for a few more days to get a reaction. But why is that?

I also am confused if I'm getting villi damage or not. Ugh I'm at work gotta go.

Withdrawal Symptoms Off Dairy - Anxiety?

15 May 2008 - 03:52 PM

Did anyone else get withdrawal symptoms coming off dairy?

I don't feel too bad, but I'm wondering if I'm getting some anxiety...

In other words, I'm not sure if the situation I am in, should be giving me so much anxiety... like if its real, or if its because I'm withdrawing from dairy.
I wish I could tell because...well... I'm trying to make decisions on something and the anxiety is telling me one thing...


Can You Be "intolerant" To Dairy Even If You Don't Have Any Gi Symptoms?

06 May 2008 - 05:38 PM

I'm not sure if I have issues with dairy. I think I may, but not sure. If you had issues with dairy would it be obvious??

I started eating ice cream about a month ago, and noticed I digested it fine. So I started eating it more and more. Recenlty it got to the point I had to have it everyday...and usually I would have 1 quart a day at a time. Sometimes 1.75 quarts...

But it was so good. And it was my only source of carbs (the rest of the day I would just eat good meat/veggies...some fruit)

But recently I was wondering if maybe I should really cut it out for 2 weeks to see if it makes a different in my general mood?

I don't feel depressed...but I think I struggle with anxiety...wonder if it could somehow mess with that. I seem to remember times in my life when I was against all dairy (for whatever reason) and I was doing better...

But is it so insidious that it affects you even without you knowing it? I seriously felt huge withdrawals today from ice cream....HUGE. I find that odd.
