In Topic: Anyone Know Of Any Good Research On The Effect Of Gluten In The Behavior In C...

04 July 2012 - 04:06 PM

As part of my Master's thesis, I'm researching high protein, low carb vs. high carb, low protein on student achievement and I have read a lot of articles but have found very few that related to topics like gluten. I know from experience if I'm exposed to gluten I'm more likely to suffer from brain for and as a child (pre-gluten knowledge) I was in trouble most of the time. I have run across a few articles that mentioned celiac being misdiagnosed as mild autism. If you have access to a university database you might have better luck. If you like and I run across any as I continue my research I would be happy to email them to you if possible through the forums or you can send me your email by pm.

In Topic: Weight Watchers

I agree with killernj13, both works well for me--finally! once I got my head around the fact that just because I couldn't eat one Krispy Cream Donut that I could eat a whole a whole box of gluten-free donuts. I like the meetings for the accountability but I like the online resources because it's easier to calculate points of my gluten-free recipes. Good luck you can do it. I really believe (after years of struggle) that 99% of losing weight is all in the head--the fork is just a tool.

In Topic: Could It Be I'm Still Not Healing

Thanks for all the replies everyone. My TSH was 1.92 and the Albumin was normal. I guess I was associating the low cholesterol with low fat absorption (thus low rate of absorption of fat soluble vitamins)The only abnormal numbers were low WBC 3.4 (range 4.8-10.8) Low segmented neutrophil 44 (range 50-70) and high lymph 54 (20-40). My B12 was high at 998 (range 211-946) which is a little odd as I haven't been very consistent in remembering to take my vitamins every day.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful suggestions especially the elimination plan and the possible link to salicylates. I can't do much about the baby aspirin until I speak to my cardiologist because of the weird heart rhythm I've had to deal with--evidently the baby aspirin will help in the prevention of a stroke? I plan on beginning the elimination diet today in hopes it helps. In some ways that should make my life easier--you don't have to think about what to eat, the list is so short it's easy to narrow down :P If these fail I would possibly consider adding on a med but hope to avoid that if at all possible. Thanks again for all the advice, I guess I should consider it darkness at the end of the tunnel--especially at 3 a.m. LOL Happy New Year Everyone==May we all find peace and healing this year.

In Topic: gluten-free Pie Crust?

26 December 2011 - 04:15 PM

I struggle making traditional pie crust before becoming gluten-free and always relied on the supermarket for ready made crust. I don't have access to gluten-free pie crust now and found this recipe online which I used for the first time last year. It is extremely easy to work with and I roll between two sheets of plastic wrap which makes it easy to place in the pie pan. The hardest part is doing the fluting around the edges although I'm getting better :rolleyes: at that part. It is very easy and if you don't need the second crust it freezes very well.
Vinegar Pastry by Betty Hagman. This makes two crusts.

1 c white rice flour
3/4 c tapioca flour
3/4 c cornstarch
1 t xanthan gum
3/4 t salt
1 T sugar
Combine all of the above. Cut into it: 3/4 c shortening.

Blend together:
1 egg, lightly beaten
1T vinegar
Add this to the flour mixture.

Add ice water, 1 T at a time, and toss with a fork until it holds together when squeezed without being crumbly or sticky. Divide in 2 and wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 min. At this point you can freeze it.

Roll out between pieces of rice-floured wax paper or plastic wrap, remove the top one and invert into the pie plate. Finish and bake as usual for your pie recipe. Bake all the scraps as well, spread them with jelly, and pretend they're poptarts
