Unidentified Food Problem?

01 August 2004 - 12:08 PM

Ok, something is still upsetting my stomach, I have had such a time getting my stomach straight. :( I'm still learning what I can and can't eat, but I can't identify what i could have eaten today that is bothering me. So here's what I ate and maybe someone will see something I shouldn't have eaten..... (i'm not sure I am more than just GI, I don't have the full celiac disease symptoms, but have had the IBS sym. for years)

ok Breakfast was: 1 fried egg, bacon, gluten-free toast (Energ tapicoa bread), no sugar strawberry jelly, 1 hashbrown, low sugar fruit punch, felt fine (other than grouchy from hormones!)
lunch: baked ham, canned black eye peas, fresh tomato, onion, diet dr. pepper,
got the stomach ache after this.... then I ate to pamela's cc cookies (yes, with an already upset stomach). AND my left side is hurting.

New To Gluten Free

31 July 2004 - 06:12 AM

Greetings, I just wanted to introduce myself. I discovered after going on the atkins diet for weight loss, that I am gluten intolerant. I have had IBS since I was a teenager and noticed how much better I felt without bread and my symptoms were much better. So now I am off the atkins diet and *trying* to learn to eat gluten free. I don't think I am CS, but I haven't tested either. I don't really have alot of the symptoms, although my sister, who as also recently gone gluten-free does have, although she has had Lyme's before and thinks they are related to that (I am trying to convince her to have the test, esp. since she has had intestinal & weight loss improvement from gluten-free, but her muscle/sleep problems continue. Anyway, I am having such a hard time sticking to gluten-free. I finally broke down and purchased some gluten free products. However, I tend to be sensitive to carbs so I really want to limit them. I also have another 10-20 lbs left to lose. Does anyone else have trouble sticking to the diet? I *always* regret when I cheat and wonder what I could have been thinking, lol. Also, I am still learning what I can and can't eat. I was eating oatmeal for hte fiber and realized that's why my stomach was bothering me so. Does anyone know if methycelluose is ok?( main ingredient in citrucel) It's a main made chemical for fiber. My son also has IBS, but I think it is really encropesis, so I am not sure if I should put him on the diet or not.
