#651204 Does Anyone Like Being Celiac

Posted by on 04 November 2010 - 03:03 PM

I know I probably sound like a nut, but I kind of enjoy it. I've always been a weird eater, and im also dairy free and vegetarian...I guess its kind of fun for me to be different.
Sure I hate getting weird looks when i bring weird food, or not being able to eat the cake at a party, or having to look stuff up ahead of time, or accidently contaminating myself..(jeez maybe im talking myself out of liking it) But I like to know that i am doing something healthy and i like the challenge of finding/making new foods. Does anyone else relate?

#648805 Celiac Vaccine?

Posted by on 24 October 2010 - 06:00 PM

I think it would be risky to make a vaccine for this. If your body is not meant to process gluten, then its not meant to process gluten. Why would you inject something into your body to stop your bodies natural reaction to what is pretty much seen as a poison to your body? I think that most if not everyone would benefit on a gluten free diet and that more effort should be put into making gluten free options more widespread and less spent on trying to stop celiac.
Just my thoughts :P

#648686 Oh My! Do You Remember These Delicious Cookies?

Posted by on 24 October 2010 - 07:50 AM

I did it! Yesterday I made sugar cookie dough, and seperated it into uneven 3rds. then i died one part of the dough orange, the other green and left the rest white. When I went to bake it i flatted out the cookie part and put a little blob of orange and green then baked it, and they now have little pumpkins in the middle. I was so happy!

And for grain free things, i dont know much but the first thing i thought of was finding the raw recipes. There are a lot of raw foodists and you can find recipes online for things and most have no grain at all. Heres an example and the things on this website look pretty good to me! http://www.therawdessert.com/

#642533 Ran My First 5K!

Posted by on 27 September 2010 - 06:08 PM

I wanted to run my first 5K back in April, but the undiagnosed Celiac knocked me on my butt and I was unable to train for it. I finally got the Celiac under better control (including getting the diagnosis!) and I just ran my first 5K race today. It felt great! I just wanted to say that Celiac may have slowed me, but it couldn't stop me from reaching my goal! I kicked Celiac in the BUTTOCKS. Hooray!!!!

Thats awesome! Im in cross country and since going gluten free my running has progressively been getting waaay better! Theres even another girl on the team who has celiac. Its crazy! WOOHOO for you! Are you planning on doing another one?

#632418 Anyone Know How I Can Put Weight On?

Posted by on 17 August 2010 - 10:05 AM

im sick of everyone telling me how skinny I am - i eat 3-4 meals a day and usually have a Lara bar or fruit as a snack but i still cant get past 144 lbs. I should be 155-157 but that all changed when i cut out gluten and dairy.

i cant over eat and dont want to load up on too many carbs or too much protein so i guess theres really no other way to gain weight, but im open to some suggestions



Have you tried gaining more muscle. Maybe you could go to the gym and do some lifting and strength training. It would be a good way to gain weight without excess fat.

#629795 More Constipated After Going Gluten Free?!

Posted by on 06 August 2010 - 05:36 PM

I had the same problem. The only thing that EVER helped regulate it, like perfectly regulate it, is taking a magnesium supplement daily. You can adjust it. Take enough to the point where you have regular bowel movements, if it becomes diarrhea, lower the amount you take. Plus, magnesium is great for heart function
