Topics I've Started

Anyone Living In Brazil?

26 March 2011 - 03:58 AM

I'm from Uruguay but I'm living in Sao Paulo, Brazil and was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. I know that in Brazil they are kind of lenient with what can be labeled gluten free and I have already gotten sick a few times from things that turned out to be "mostly gluten free." Do any of you live in Brazil and if so do you have any tips for me?

Travelling And Living In Germany

26 March 2011 - 03:36 AM

Hey Everyone,
My question is kind of broken up into two main parts: the plane ride there and what to do afterwards.

Next week, I am flying Lufthansa to Frankfurt, Germany. From where I am it is a ten hour flight and I really don't look forward to the prospect of not eating at all for 10+ hours. With that said, I'm not sure that Lufthansa offers gluten free meals (even upon request in advance). Any suggestions as to what I should do in terms of snacks? I can't bring fresh fruit or anything because of customs...

Also, once I get into Germany, I will be going to Bremen. Any experience with trying to eat gluten free there? I am considering going to college there next year so I kind of wanted to know what my experience would be like in terms of food in Bremen and Germany in general.
Thanks :)

Losing Weight

12 February 2011 - 10:46 AM

I was recently self-diagnosed by elimination with a gluten intolerance and am waiting for the results from my blood tests for celiac. I have been gluten free for almost a month now and have lost a lot of weight very quickly (12 pounds to be exact). Is it normal to lose so much weight in the beginning of switching to a gluten free diet?
