I personally think I like the Cheese Glutino pizza better than Amy's.

In Topic: How Do I Stop Anorexia Comments

04 August 2008 - 12:00 PM

O man do I know how you feel. I am between 5'3 and 5'4 and when I was healthy I was 114 and then when I got sick I went down to like 83 pounds and people kept making comments and doctors even asked me if I was anorexic and I absolutely hated it. I had tons of anxiety due to what I have been through and so I would not eat alot or in front of people because I was afraid of getting sick because everything used to make me sick so I decided I guess not to eat. Anyhow to make a long story short I am about 125 now and I have a healthy appetite because the doctors actually put me on an anti anxiety med that helps increase weight. You know I am not a big fan of meds but when you are so thin like I was, it's a last option. Anyhow, just try not to let it get to you...I know it is harder than it seems cuz I was there and those comments hurt because you feel like you can't help it but you know what..it WILL get better. And being gluten free for a while did help me gain weight back too. Just hang in there

PS...I don't think your weight seems that bad to me..that is actually a pretty good weight for your size if you ask me. Maybe they are just jealous ;)

[font="Garamond"]Will, if you've been diagnosed with celiac disease, you really, really do NOT want to eat wheat gluten. The only exceptions to this rule (that I can think of) are:

(1) that your doctor told you told to do because you're due for a biopsy confirming your diagnosis; or

(2) while at a restaurant, you have no choice but to order the dish containing the smallest amount of wheat, barley, or rye AND are going to take Gluten-ease or Gluten Defense pill with your meal.




WOW! That is some of the worst advice from a fellow celiac that I have ever heard. This person obviously is either new to celiac and just believed the first thing he/she read or is in denial. You should never eat any amount of gluten as even the smallest amount will give you damage whether or not you have symptoms.
I do have glutenease and if I somehow accidentally get glutened I will take them for one reason...they can't hurt anything because I am already miserable! lol and to me thats the only purpose they serve.


There are actually alot of "snacks" and "junk food" that we can still have. Alot of ice creams, chips, etc. if that is what you crave. As far as gluten free specialty items...some of it tastes like crap BUT there are alot of good brands and if you ask for suggestions I am sure people will be more than willing to help I know I will help.

I am a very picky eater and a brand I like to get alot of stuff is Gluten Free Bakehouse by Whole Foods has some really good Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, sandwich breads that don't tast like cardboard, cookies, and more that my husband loves and he is picky and not celiac.
Glutino has a pretty good cheese pizza too

As far as people trying to force it on you...just tell them it can die and it will just slowly kill you if you eat it. If they don't understand that is their problem. I know it is difficult. I was 17 when I was diagnosed and I had pizza parties and all that I went to and it was tempting but in the end I was able to resist because I was so miserable and knew how it made me feel. Just stay strong and know that you are not the only one.
If you need any help just let me know

In Topic: Is There Anything You Can Do Once You´ve Accidentally Had Gluten?

23 July 2008 - 09:32 AM

I know for me when I started to be gluten free I was up and down alot even when I was not getting any gluten in. When I did accidentally get something it got worse and I felt like I had been hit like a bus and soooo much nausea. I know for me there was nothing I could do to get it over with quicker. It would take me sometimes 2-3 weeks but for some it is longer and for some it is shorter. I would have good and bad days throughout that 2-3 week span. Just hang in there and know it will be over soon and take care of yourself and much as you can. Probiotics and enzymes are a good addition when you are feeling bad as well. Take care

:D
