Substituting Bad Foods For Good Foods

23 March 2011 - 11:28 AM

I was diagnosed with Celiacs last year and have been substituting candy for healthy foods ever since. I think part of this is because I can't eat my favorite foods like pasta, bread etc. I have been eating those things for 20 years and then all of a sudden I am told I can't. for awhile I used to crave those foods so much that I would turn toward candy to ease the crave. And now I am eating alot of candy and gaining alot of weight and no matter how hard I try I can't seem to stop eating candy because I know I won't be able to eat my other favorite foods. Any suggestions would be very helpful, Thanks.

Help! Not Sure What To Do About Diet

22 July 2010 - 10:32 PM

I was diagnosed in Janurary with Celiacs....I am still in the denial/angry stage. I need advise about foods to eat. I have been gaining weight pretty steadly...I am scared that I am going to keep gaining weight. I get bloated really easily. I have heard that when you are first diagnosed with celiacs that you should not eat lactose for a couple months to let your instestine heal (this is hard cause I LOVE cheese). I am 21 and living on a college students budget, so I don't like buying gluten-free grains because they can be really pricey for me. everytime i see regular pasta or cake, etc I get huge cravings. I am just so upset with myself for allowing myself to gain so much weight...any suggestions or ideas would be gratefully appreciated.

I am in college i was diagnosed with celiacs in january. I am working at a sandwich shop. do you think that being around the breads could cause problems. also, if i eat a piece of chicken or something that has been touched by gloves that touched bread is that bad and will it give me problems related to celiacs.
