Posts I've Made

In Topic: Looking For Yogurt

18 August 2011 - 04:55 PM

I like FAGE Greek yogurt. I just buy the plain with zero fat and add a bit (or a lot) of honey, preserves or fresh fruit to it. Plain, it tastes like creme fraiche/sour cream. With additives it tastes like thick flavored yogurt.

If you are counting calories, watch some of those brands already mentioned. They are be really high in fat and a small tub (5oz) can have upwards of 2-300 calories, especially if they are also flavored.

In Topic: Help Me Like Lara Bars!

18 August 2011 - 04:51 PM

I loved Larabars before General Mills bought them out. My faves were the nut and chocolate ones. Now...they're just not as good anymore<sad sigh>

So far KIND bars are still made by their original maker. They are tasty, but they stick to my teeth like crazy and that's annoying. I have to pick, brush and floss after eating one lest I go around with a nut skin for piece of dried fruit stuck to my front tooth...

In Topic: Vitamin D Deficiency--Poll

18 August 2011 - 04:23 PM

During my last physical (a year prior to going gluten-free), my doctor said my levels were low. How low, I don't know because I didn't think to ask. He told to me to start taking 2000IU's a day and get re-checked in a year.

That was in April of 2010. I haven't been back, nor have I been very good about remembering to take the stuff. I don't suffer from any symptoms that I know of, but I've never looked them up either.

It's funny/strange to me how many of these posts I read that mention something that I have or have gone through. This gluten intolerance had a lot of rammifications that I NEVER expected.

In Topic: How Long Before You Feel Better

10 August 2011 - 06:36 PM

I felt results almost instantly--within 24 hours. I've noticed more subtle positive changes as time has gone by. Instantly I lost my nightly stomach cramps. Over the next couple of months (it's only been since 04.21.11 for me) my migraines lessened and are all but gone now; the dark circles under my eyes have lessened; and I have fewer aches and pains. I've also got some relief from my IBS, but it is not resolved.

In Topic: How Long Until Regular Bowel Movements?

10 August 2011 - 06:30 PM

I'm having the opposite problem. Without 2-3 doses of psyllium/day, I don't go. With the psyllium, I'm going 2-3/week. Daily or multiple times daily is beyond my comprehension...
