How To Start Gluten-free Living

29 April 2009 - 07:23 AM

I'm wondering if people would be willing to share some tips and ideas on how to begin a gluten-free life. I am brand spanking new to this and am truly at a loss. I have a gluten-free cookbook and have been researching online but it all seems so complicated.

I am unsure as to how my pantry should change and if there are some easy transition ideas that could be shared.

Any information would be wonderful.

Thank you in advance

I Get Tired Right After I Eat!

24 April 2009 - 07:14 AM

Wondering if someone out there might have any suggestions as to how to go about solving my problem. It seems that no matter what I eat, I get so, so tired that I have to stop what I am doing and lay down or take a nap! I've been trying to do the South Beach Diet with less carbs and eating only meats and veggies, but even still, I am exhausted! If anyone has any ideas, I would really appriecate it! I'm at my wits end and seem to be spending more time laying around that awake. It's not fair to my 3 year old and I feel horrible as a mother and wife because of it.

I have done a Candida cleanse 3 times now and take probotics daily.

Thank you

I Just Cheated!

15 January 2009 - 06:03 AM

Ok....in a moment of weakness I just cheated by eating a bowl of Kashi Cinna.Raisin Crunch!!! :( I have been on this Candida diet for 6 days and was going to puke if I didn't eat something other than meat, veggies or nuts!!!

My headaches and facial pain have subsided for 3 days now but the engery level is horrible still. I am taking Probotics 3 times daily and a garlic pill to help assist in the attack of the Candida.

Has anybody been on this diet and cheated? What side effects did you encounter? Am I doomed to fail again? Will this set me back? Does this start me from step one? Have I ruined all my hard work (all 6 days worth..not much I know). If you can't notice, I am feeling HORRIBLE AND GUILTY!! I am planning to resume the diet after this one lapse....

Thanx

Recipe For Pork Loin--on Candida Diet

14 January 2009 - 09:58 AM

I was wondering if anyone out there would have a REALLY good recipe for a pork loin? I am currently on the Candida diet (horrible) which means I can only eat meat, fresh veggies, nuts and water. I am not opposed to stuffing it, however I can't have cheese or milk.

I'm at a loss because I am running out of ideas. Please help. THIS DIET IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!! :blink: :blink:

Thanx

Is It Celiac Or Maybe Candida---or Both?

12 January 2009 - 08:16 AM

I'm wondering if I would be able to gather some feedback from Celiac suffers to help me in my search for a pain-free and happy life. I have had the following symptoms since I was in 5th grade...I'm 32 now so it's been a really long time feeling like total crap. After looking through so much info with my mother and being through so many doctors and test, my mother is ABSOLULTLY convienced that we are on to something with Candida. I am not sure...I am starting to believe that maybe it's Celiac Disease. I am really new to this and don't know where to begin. Here is my story and symptoms...I would appriecate any info....I am truly lost.

I am tired ALL THE TIME. Even after a 8 to 9 hours night sleep, I wake up and continue to be and feel exhausted all day. I have no engery at all. It takes all my strengh to do the simplest things because of the lack of engery and tiredness. It's really annoying that I can't enjoy my days.

I have headaches pretty much everyday. Doctor diagonsed me with migranes..been on Topamax for those and didn't work. I have constant facial pain, like my actual facial bone structure hurts..my husband thinks he is going to "break my face" because I make him push and rub so hard to try and relieve some pressure.

I have always had knee pains, major pain in my shoulders(like it almost feels hard to hold my head up sometimes because the muscles are so tight and hurt so bad). People think it's stress but even after a massage, I have no relief. When I was young I was told they were "growing pains" but I am 32 and I think that they should be done by now and I still have them.

I have been dianosed with chronic sinusitus and have had sinus infections all my life--so antibotics I have been on quite a bit. I do have allergies, such as cats, dogs, mold, dust, everything outside, CORN and a few others. I have been diagonsed with ADD and Depression and have been on medication since I was about 20. Irritability and mood swings have all been equated with the ADD and Depression. I have those on a daily basis as well. I am on meds for the ADD and Depression, as well as a host of other supplements.

I did just start the SUPER-STRICT Candida elimation diet...which is basically meat, veggies, nuts and water. It's horribly limited and I am craving cheese, milk and sugar! So, that's about all I can think of at this moment. I have a beautiful 2 year old boy and a wonderful husband. I can't continue like this...it isn't fair to them and I am at a lost as to where to start. I hope that someone, anyone can help me, even if you think I don't have Celiac or Candida that would at least help me look somewhere else. I am desperate.

I thank you all in advance.
