Thanks for all the replies! Since I posted, my appetite has had yet again another "swing" and all I have been interested in is ice cold fruit and veggies. (raw, uncooked) so I'd say that's not such a bad thing lol
I am 30 years old. I have been off gluten for 3 months now. I think my first day of quitting the gluten was somewhere around mid-december, as I recall going nuts when my mother brought out her calzone for xmas lol. It was actually really easy for me to start, with the exception of home-made goodies like that. I still resisted!
I never really had symptoms that I recognized before I cut out gluten cold turkey. Now, I noticed the few times I had been bad and ate something I shouldn't, I would break out in what looks to be hives, I'd feel terribly bloated, and have tremendous difficulty digesting - and it'd often just come back up on me.
You've all brought up some great ideas - and I do have to remind myself that I am not only harming myself, but also am harming the one thing I was sure would never be!
So now I'm going to have to find some great meal ideas - and mashed potatoes have been a heaven-sent carb solution for me when I need them most! So for now, I'm going to stick to that being my only starchy fix since the other stuff is just making my stomach turn.
