#653075 What's The Bread That's Inedible But Makes Good Stuffing?

Posted by VitaminDGirl on 13 November 2010 - 12:07 AM

lovin' this thread. Enr-G bread yuck-sharing...
but the package looks so neat and like it could be yummy...
who really eats and enjoys it? (ok, just read there are a few that like it--good for them and the company :)
Even my baby threw it down and made a bad face.
I only use my bread machine now to make breads. Love Anna's breads and
Gluten Free Pantry Sandwich bread....

Looking forward to trying one of these stuffing recipes!

#646626 Should you be eliminating wheat from your child's diet? - CBC.ca

Posted by VitaminDGirl on 15 October 2010 - 10:59 PM

Are we as forum members, allowed to respond to these articles here? If not, please delete. I'm new here. I see there is not much conversation here...
but I was saddened by the article somewhat making it sound like it could be damaging to take your child off gluten, especially if they haven't tested for celiac...
I was actually told by my daughter's pediatric GI that he felt it cruel to take a child off gluten esp when other kids get to eat it. Told me right in front of her. I was asking for blood tests with possible biopsy in sight. I was thinking how bad of a parent I would be to not take her off of it and see if it helps her health and body.
She deals with constant constipation and ezcema. His cure? Miralax and mineral oil daily. How is that any less cruel than taking my child off gluten/wheat products to see if it helps her system???
Hmmmm...
I hope others might read the article and respond as well.

#630446 Need Some Help Understanding Weigh Loss/gain On gluten-free Diet

I'm not a scientist or doctor but my understanding is that since the lining of the small intestine is damaged, it does not absorb nutrients, vitamins and fats as it normally should. This can cause diarrhea, constipation, vitamin deficiencies, weight loss, weight gain, metabolism changes and other symptoms of malnutrition: Any or all of these can by symptoms/outcomes.

Thanks for your response.

#630248 Need Some Help Understanding Weigh Loss/gain On gluten-free Diet

Posted by VitaminDGirl on 08 August 2010 - 06:41 PM

So do some celiacs lose fast because they are having diaherrea?
Or why is that?
The past year I was 'trying' to lose weight and got to my smallest size ever. BUt now I wonder how much of it was by my trying, and if it's just because of the gluten? I do not get diaherrea though. Mine has been more constipation.

I'm worried once I go totally gluten free I will now GAIN weight if this is 'why' I lost.

Does that make sense?
I hope you can help me understand that.

Thanks.
