I'm just realizing it now Mushroom!
I considered it once before but then everything seemed to be bothering me.
Lectins have got to be part of the reason.
Yeah that's probably why meat is the only thing that really agrees with me.
While we are on the subject of lectins...let's post the lectin report for others to consider too.

Just in case we are not alone. :ph34r: ;)


I just can't thank you enough for the web link ! I read it and now I know why I can not touch a potato or peanut, I have never known why, just thought I inherited it from Grandma since she could not eat them either, Thankyou so much , it has answered so much for me !

I can't handle beans or lentils at all and I am one year into gluten free. I get sick every time. I started to consider lectins. I never touch tofu and I avoid soy so I'm not sure about digesting that. Nuts are ok for me though strangely enough. That is...unless they have been processed on a line that processes wheat. There are many that are so watch out for that too.


I tried to eat black-eyed peas for New Years Day ya know...for good luck. Well, I got anything but good luck from that little experiment. From now on it is good luck for me not to touch beans at all.


Protein from meat and poultry is well-tolerated though.



Thanks, I also find a little meat protien works ok .

It's probably not the protein that's the issue. Beans, nuts, grains, and other seeds are hard to digest if you don't soak them. They have phytic acid, enzyme inhibitors, lectins, and some difficult-to-digest starches that can all cause trouble.

Nuts need to be soaked with a little salt anywhere from 4-12 hours depending on size and the type of nut, then gently dried. You can use a food dehydrator or your oven on the lowest possible setting (prop the door open if necessary).

I would suggest soaking medium sized beans like brown beans a bare minimum of 12 hours before you cook them. Rinse them and change the water at least once during the soak, and be sure to rinse well again before you put them into the pot. You could also try a little Bean-zyme, a gluten-free version of Beano, if the long soak doesn't do the trick.

As far as tofu, soybeans are notoriously hard to digest if they are not fermented. Try tempeh instead. Be sure to write the company that makes the tempeh you can get locally and check that it's gluten-free. Some manufacturers maintain their cultures on barley.

Thanks, I have never thought about soaking nuts, I always do the beans, I just avoid all soy now.

In Topic: Lower Back Pain

03 January 2012 - 06:31 PM

Wow. Thank you for posting this topic. I, too, get joint and muscle pain (and fibromyalgia flares) from eating gluten, but never connected the low back pain into the mix. I have degenerating discs in my lumbar and cervical spine. Of course getting glutened would make that pain worse. Duh! (gentle head smack!) :lol: I will pay attention now to that connection. Yet one more reason to be even more careful.


I also have the fibromyalgia flares, and till you said it, I would never have linked it with the gluten ! Thanks,
