Topics I've Started

What Are The Healthiest Grains?

31 March 2012 - 02:07 PM

I'm planning on trying a low to no grain diet, something like the south beach diet. I'm already gluten free but want to lose some weight and eat less starch and sugar.

I've heard of people on grain free diets still eating quinoa, millet, buckwheat, and brown rice. I've also heard amaranth talked about in this way too.

My question is what are the healthiest/most nutritious grains? Obviously I wouldn't have anything with gluten, and I'd also exclude oatmeal, corn, white rice, and potato. So are the grains I mentioned earlier actually better for you than other grains?

Trying Candida/scd Type Diet

30 March 2012 - 08:36 PM

So I've been wanting to lose weight, and this type of diet seems like it would help. I'm also doing it as an experiment to see if it'll help with my lingering depression and brain fog. I'm planning on doing it for at least a month. Anyone have tips for me? I'll probably be back to complain when the cravings hit.

Cross-Contamination Considerations

27 March 2012 - 07:02 PM

I've been on the gluten free diet for about 3 months and I'm not feeling that much better. I'm avoiding a couple other things as well (I'm on a doctor prescribed elimination diet), but am especially concerned about the gluten. I know from the enterolabs test that I'm sensitive.

I haven't bothered to think of cross contamination a lot because just sticking to the diet has been enough of a challenge. I guess considering my antibodies to gliadin weren't that high and I don't have clear symptoms when I eat gluten, that I have a hard time believing I really need to be that careful.

As an example, would dipping a gluten free communion wafer into a glass of wine that has breadcrumbs in it be a no-no? I've found a substitute for the bread, but I hadn't thought about the wine.

Sign Petition For Chipotle To Stop Using Soybean Oil

15 March 2012 - 09:44 AM

I found this petition at gopetition.com that was started last April. It looks credible to me, but so far has only 122 signatures. It ptitions Chipotle Grill to eliminate soy products, including soybean oil, from all of its food products. Please sign it so Chipotle might become be more like its slogan- "food with integrity". And pass this along to anyone who might be interested in signing it. :)

Gluten In Medications?

26 February 2012 - 09:46 PM

Is this a problem? My parents think I'm overreacting and its "such a small amount". Also what do you do if you get generic and the manufacturer changes often when you go to refill it? Thanks for the help! :)
