For Those Of You With Soy Allergy...

02 February 2011 - 04:21 PM

does soy lecithin and soybean oil bother you? I was pretty sure I had read somewhere that soybean oil and lecithin are NOT suppose to bother people with soy allergy, but I am sure both bothers me. Maybe I am wrong, and that soybean oil is also bad?

Thanks!

Gluten And Soy Free Food? Help!

29 January 2011 - 03:13 PM

Does anyone have any suggestions for packaged gluten and soy free foods? Besides Larabars? It's not that I don't like those, but I'm trying to lose weight and the calories and sugar just arent good for my waistline :P

Any recipe/cooking advice would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm getting very tired of my usual yogurt, turkey, chicken, apples, strawberries, carrots and a few other veggies. I sort of had a major meltdown yesterday when I went to Uno's Chicago Grill, who I know is good about gluten free/food accomadations, and after reading through the ingredients of every possible menu item, I could only have one thing...and only one of the sides (who knew they put soy on french fries? and broccoli???!) I hate to admit it, but the thought of such limited food opptions and difficulties for the rest of my life (i'm only 18....college eating/socializing can be a nightmare)was hard to swallow. Admittedly, I went home and, like a baby, had a good cry and moped around for a good hour or so. *sigh* I just get very frustrated with having to life inside such a "box" per say. I know it's only food, but it isn't the lack of food that bothers me so very much, although it does suck, but the unfair limitations I have when it comes to socializing and such. Anyways, thanks for listening to my vent and crying confession.

Thank you SO much in advance for any food help!

Sudden "d", Advice Needed

05 January 2011 - 01:44 PM

Usually when i get glutened I have constipation, never the big "D". Well I have been learning to go gluten free, and while it hasn't been long, I have been feeling a bit better! I'm having BM every day now, buuut...they aren't quite...right. It's very almost like D (sorry for the TMI!) every afternoon I'll have a snack, and then after a bit a get sharp stomach pains and some bloating (none of the other gluten symptoms) and then the D-like BM about 5 min later. I'm sorry if it is TMI, but for anyone who finds it helpful to know....the BM's are definitely a lighter color than normal, and while they have shape it looks very...peicy? I don't quite know how to describe it, except for I think food isn't being digested properly because it looks as though there is some food partially digested in it....gross I know :/

Anyways, my question is, for anyone who has a soy allergy, did something like this happen to you? I ruled out fructose malabsorption because I eat an apple a day and haven't had this problem before, only just this past week, although I suppose it's still possible it could be FM. If it doesn't sound like a soy problem, could it be that my body isn't processing gluten-free products properly? I don't eat a lot of them right now because I know you arent suppose to in the begining, but I do eat Chex cereal (gluten free). I don't think it could be lactose intolerance because while I often have yogurt for a snack, I didn't today, and I still got the "D" like BM.

All personal experiences or opinions/advice is welcome! Thanks so so much for reading this icky personal post :)

Just So Down, Suggestions Or Advice?

01 January 2011 - 06:02 PM

Hi everyone,

I am just so down and depressed right now. I keep getting glutened, it's gotten to the point of ridiculous in my opinion. I have been trying since 11/21/10 to stay gluten-free, but it seems almost every week at LEAST i get glutened, whether it be my own stupid fault or I'm traveling and my food is cross contaminated from stupid resturaunts who think they know how to do Gluten Free. I am so sick and miserable! Gluten makes me gain weight like a polar bear, and I am overweight already from not knowing for years that i had celiacs. I am just do distraught, and so depressed by thw weight gain. I would feel better if I was gluten free and working towards being healthier, but constanttly getting glutened, and living in a gluten household is just so depressing. I have to watch everyone eat things I can't, and normally I can deal with that. But when i get accidently gluten, i go literally crazy for food, particularily gluteny chocolate-y foods. So my willpower weakens and I get glutened some more because I am really just an idiot (who glutens themselves?!) *sigh*

Sorry for my vent, I am just so unhappy and frustrated at the moment :/

anyways, my question is, for anyone who has dealt with food cravings when glutened, what do you do? Any comforting words and advice is GREATLY appreciated!

Fructose Malabsorption?!?

22 December 2010 - 06:14 PM

Hi everyone, my story in a nutshell is,in the past few years, particularly past 2 years, I have been getting sicker, having problems such as extreme weight gain even though I can hardly eat, feeling all over crappy 24/7, always very very tired, bloating, gas, constipation to the max, intense cravings, mild depression ONLY after I eat carb-loaded/gluten foods, and joint pain. After my doctor tested me for different thyings over and over again, she threw up her hands in despair. When I proposed that I may have a gluten intolerance/celiac, she promptly blew off the idea and I was never tested. So i went gluten-free myself exactly a month ago, and while I have had plenty of accident glutenings in the past month, I have been feeling considerabling better. No more depression, joint pain, crazy fatigue, no more weight gain. But, I have noticed a problem where I seem to get nauseous, bloated, and just... a slow, bleh feeling when I eat foods that contain a quality amount of sugar. For example, I had a peice of gluten free chocolate bark that i made, and I didnt have a huge amount, just a couple squares. Well within the hour I felt rather queasy, hot, tired, just not good. Then later I taste tested some peanut brittle (gluten free) and I had bloating, gas and stomach pains, hot, and just didn't feel well. I have had this problem before, when i ate honey on gluten-free bread. I did some research and came up with Fructose Malabsorption.

Can anyone please explain this in laymans terms to me, and what should I do? Do I have celiacs, or FM? or both?! and what foods can I not eat/ can eat with FM???
Please help! Thank you so much in advance
