In Topic: What Did You Find Most Difficult About The Gf Diet

03 July 2004 - 10:23 AM

It's really difficult to eat in a restaurant unless you pick Mexican or Chinese or Japanese. They seem to put wheat starch and flour in everything. Cybergran10

;) :blink: :rolleyes: Hi Smith, I know this post is over a month old and maybe you already found your answer, but I was thinking dairy might do it. I know I have to avoid dairy at all costs. Are you lactose intolerant? Just a thought. Cybergran10

;) :) Congratulations Kathleen. Good for you, 35 pounds is no mean feat. I'm sorry you still have medical problems to deal with that makes your success harder to enjoy. Hubby will get used to the new you, sometimes partners get a little insecure when we change ourselves, but with a little time and patience we can show them that we still are basically the same, just a smaller version. If you are happier, then ultimately that will be better for your relationship with him. Just an insight that has taken me a 27 year relationship to figure out. ((BLESSINGS)) Cybergran10

I have been able to add small amounts of dairy to my diet with out any ill effects. So I think you may be right. I think sometimes you get a hold of something that has been cross contiminated with gluten no matter how careful you are. I did that last saturday and boy did I ever pay for it. All you can do is try to make sure you prepare your own food as much as you can. Have a great day, Cybergran10

In Topic: You've Probably Heard It All Before

I've been doing this Gluten free diet for awhile now. Everyone has had some wonderful suggestions. When I am not low carbing I llke to take gluten free pasta and do a stir fry and add the pasta. You can add a gluten free sauce and you have a complete meal. Or chilli is always good. I only cook glutenfree so it's been awhile since my hubby has had any gluten, only when we eat out. At a restaurant if I'm not sure of the menu I order A chefs salad. Of course I'm probably not the one to answer your delimma on what to cook because I am an ex chef and cooking doesn't bother me. It's always nice to know what other people do when we have those days that we just don't seem to have enough time to prepare a proper meal. I found some really great helpful information. The only thing I will say is this (I guess I feel compelled to state the obvious) that staying gluten free is essential for us because our lives may depend on it. We cannot digest the protein found in gluten and it plays havoc with our villi, not to mention alot of other things. So please try to find a way to stick with the diet for your own health and well being. Back in 93 and 94 I was angry and decided that I was going to eat what I wanted anyway. It wasn't fair that everyone else could eat anything they wanted and I couldn't. It took a hospital stay, and a lecture from my doctor and dietitian to make me see the light. So don't do what I did, the diet is essential. I'm thru lecturing sorry :( :( I just shiver everytime I hear of someone not adhereing to the diet because I know how sick you can get. Have a great day Cybergran10
