In Topic: How Long To Feel Good Again?

09 February 2009 - 09:02 AM

If you really overdid it on the gluten after being gluten free your system is really telling you not to do it again.

Yeah, I suppose you are right. It's just very fruastrating to be around good food and not eat it. It seems like this is the worst I have felt in a long time. It appears everyone is right when they say reactions get worse the longer you are gluten-free. I just today had a semi-normal BM.


In Topic: Need A Healthy Way To Get Fit

Here is something I really enjoy. I am a competitive marathoner and run on a military team, but the stress of running a LOT of miles started to wear on me. So last summer I took up walking while swinging dumbells. It was popular about 15 years ago when it was called "Heavyhands" walking. I swing them front to back, do curls, tricep presses, upright rows, all while walking very fast. It gets mr heart rate up and really works the arms and shoulders. You can pick up some light dumbells at any sporting goods store or Walmart and that's all you need. Start easy, and build up in weight and duration as your fitness improves. I try to do it 2 or 3 times a week on days I don't run, or else i use it as a warmup for my esy run days. I usually do about 2 miles.


In Topic: Being Glutened?

I usually can tell by an excess of gas and cramps. Then the next day I'll have D a few times, and then loose stools for anywhere from 3 to 5 days. Lately I also seem to get dizzy for a while. Luckily I have not yet vomited, and I don't get the extreme fatigue many experience.


In Topic: Banana Bread Recipes?

15 December 2008 - 12:54 PM

I made this last night since I had some Bob's Red Mill gluten-free rolled oats that I don't like. I put them in my coffee grinder to make flour with them


and it was pretty good. It took 7 eggs to get the 1 cup of whites, so then I used the yolks and made this


which was also pretty good.

For a real treat, take your banana bread and use it for french toast. Top it with this



In Topic: Initial Diagnosis A Possible Gluten Problem?

I can identify with this. I was just looking at my test result of "3" for Iga. My GI told me that was a negative. I had been gluten-free for over 2 months when I first went to the GI, and she told me to eat gluten for 3 weeks and then we did the test. I did not eat much gluten during that 3 weeks, because I was not told I should eat a lot, and I did not like the side-effects. However, I went for a follow-up just last week, and she now feels that I do have celiac based on my positive dietary response and the fact that every time I eat gluten, either accidently or on purpose, I end up with the same old symptoms; gas, cramps, noisy stomach, D or loose stools. I don't understans the tests, but I do understand my GI tract.
