In Topic: Does Anyone Else Crave Tortilla Chips?

05 February 2011 - 08:04 PM

Thanks Takala and Glutenfreemanna!

I picked up a calcium magnesium and zinc supplement it's free of my allergens. I was taking a mineral supplement for my natural doctor, it says it's free of my allergens but I would feel odd after taking it, I don't know how to explain it. The new one I got is fine though. I've noticed since taking it I hardly crave grains as much, I did get into the chips today but not many :) Other grains I had no desire for like Bobs red mill cereal.

The iodine may be an issue too, I always use sea salt and I just put two and two together as to why some chips brands I can't put down and some I don't care for- the ones with sea salt maybe I don't crave? I actually craved meat today and was able to resist carbs until my meal- magic! Thanks for the suggestions!

Thanks everyone for your replies!

I've always liked salty crunchy foods like trisuits, wheat thins and pretzels which are obviosly out now. The gluten free pretzels are good but theyre so expensive! Theyre $6 a bag where Ive found them, geez. Im trying to lower my carbs and do more of a higher protein and (good) fat and vegetable diet and see how that goes. I havent tried beanitos, what kind of beans are they made from? Im allergic to pinto and kidney beans according to my blood test, havent tried them since going gluten free. I want to wait till my skin clears up before guinea pigging on myself :)

Chia seeds sound tasty! Would I find them at Whole Foods? Do I eat them raw? Thanks!

Could it be that you're craving salt rather than the chips?

I think thats part of it. I have low blood pressure so sometimes I black out when standing, my doctor said its because I have adrenal fatigue. She gave me her blessings to eat as much salt as I want as long as I also have alot of water with it. I should get one of those salt licks they give to horses :)

Do you think you're getting enough protein to feel fully satisfied?

Thats a really good point. For the most part I eat vegan, I've been having a cup of soy yogurt and 1/2 cup of raw nuts spread out every day, tofu, quinoa, soy milk, avocado, sushi 1-3 x's a week, yesterday and today each I ate a can of organic black beans (although Im allergic to most beans which makes it hard). I have red meat once a month or as often as I crave it (Im female so I need the iron, this month I had two burger patties and a steak in one week!) I dont do well with poultry or pork, I can do chicken once or twice a month. More than that I swear it slows everything down and I get c (sorry). I have a protein shake from my doctor I do a couple times a week. I think Im getting enough protein but Im not sure... My doctor tested my protein levels and they were low, but I dont have many options since Im allergic to everything and Im nervous about eating too much soy and getting allergic to that too. You might be on to something, maybe I should look into more protein options, any suggestions? Thank you.

Eat fats like raw walnuts, cashews, and pecans. Like a handful throughout the day. Eat half an avocado a day. Gluten free tortilla chips (I can eat half a bag a day lol). Bobs red mill gluten free hot cereal with agave sweetener and flax seeds on top and a banana. Soy yogurt if you tolerate soy. Saute veggies in olive oil. Quinoa pasta with soy cheese (I get Daiya its the only one without dairy proteins even though the others say theyre soy cheese grrr). Make homemade burgers without the buns. Get gluten free cookies and have protein shakes with coconut milk. Eat whole thai young coconuts. Have brown rice with veggies with olive oil on top. Take fish oil supplements. Have yams and potatoes. Fruit, yogurt, with nuts and gluten free chocolate pieces.

Hope that helps!!
