In Topic: Weight

I've been gluten free since October of 2007. I lost about 35lbs in the first two months. Now I can't lose a pound to save my life. What I notcied after speakign with my doctor was that most of the gluten-free foods are super high in calories. Try tracking your calories a little closer. You should burn about 2000 calories a day without exercise so you should be able to simply figure out if you are taking in more then you are burning.

Good Luck!

Yes you should. I've been getting glutend and not knowing why. It seems I didn't fully understand the consiquences of being lazy. I am now in the process of buying all new kitchen utensils, pots and pans etc. I am also going to separate my food from my families.

Good luck!

I actually called the Starbucks 800 number to ask about gluten. I was told that all latte's and other coffee drinks are gluten-free with the exception of the Mocha drinks.

In Topic: Tomato Sauce? Help!

I hear ya. I'm not sure if I was more in pain or surpise. I'm leaning towards the acid from the tomatos but I too have been eating more tomatos that aren't in sauce without a problem. Funny though how the first time I got sick from my wifes home made sauce she used Classico Plum Tomatoes.


In Topic: Newly Diagnosed--scared, Confused

Hey Dave,

I was diagnosed in October of 2007 and had many of the same feelings you are having now. You've found this site faster then I did thought as I've only been on for about 2 weeks. We are both about the same age so I can relate to your sorrow. The one thing I can tell you is that this will better your life. Once the initial shock is over you will start eating more healthy and understand better about what you are eating. I lost about 35 pounds in the first couple of months. I also starting feeling much better. I've taken a couple of steps back but am now on the road to getting better again. Eating out will take some getting used to but you will get used to it. Celiac is becoming more and more understood in the resaurant business, at least here in NY.

I miss Pizza too. I also miss Beer. There are some gluten-free beers but they're not as good to me.

I'm curious though as to why you can't have the endo done sooner. I'd be pretty upset if I know I was a celiac but coudn't go gluten-free until months later.
