In Topic: Rotation Diet

29 June 2013 - 07:14 PM



Thank you!

quote name="cyclinglady" post="877300" timestamp="1372527587"]Day 5, go back to Day 1.  If you find the four day rotational isn't doing the trick, then do a seven day rotational.  Do not eat the foods that you know are giving you the most problems.  For example, I can't eat eggs, milk, garlic, mushrooms, or almonds.  Things that I'm that only slightly bother me, like celery, rice or tomatoes, I put on the rotational diet.  
 
Here's a nice tip:  Start you "day" in the evening.  That way you can prepare your evening meal, and save some for lunch the next day.  It works well for the working folks.  Be sure to list all your foods and divide them up the way you normally like to eat them (i.e. beef, potatoes, carrots, apple, lettuce or fish, rice, pineapple and zucchini).  Each day you should have more than a dozen foods to eat.  This is your chance to try lots of veggies that you normally wouldn't have tried or a new fish or even buffalo.   It does limit you on processed foods, but you won't be on the rotation forever.  
 
This diet helped me "calm down the fire" and prevented (I hoped) new allergies/intolerances.  
 
By the way, I'd cook a turkey breast, divide it up into individual servings, freeze them and then pull out and defrost.  The same for burger patties, etc.  No food goes to waste!  
 
I used lots of frozen veggies too and to this day, I still eat  veggies at breakfast!  I also learned to eat yummy foods like taro and tried every single veggie in the produce section of American and Ethnic markets.  
 
Watch out for food families.  For example, no garlic for me and that means no onions or leeks.  :(
 
My rotational list was taped on the kitchen cupboard, put in my wallet (for shopping) and kept on my office wall.  
 
I don't know if this rotational diet has any scientific evidence showing that it worked (I did it based on  my medical doctor's advice) but mentally, it sure helped!  
 
I was never hungry and I got well and now eat lots of foods that don't bother me.  I did learn that everything in moderation and not to eat the same foods day-in and day-out. 
 
Good Luck! :)[/quote]

In Topic: Igg And Ige Testing

13 June 2013 - 07:20 PM

My doctor orders those checked through the city's medical labs. It should be covered by health care.


Oh really? Are they just the basic tests do you know? (Like dust and cat dander and things like that) .. Or is it like the ones that some naturopaths do that test like every food?
Because I asked my doctor about it and she said they don't do these extensive tests.
Where in Canada are you? I'm in Nova Scotia.

In Topic: Do Celiacs Have A Harder Time Getting Pregnant?

If you heal up by following your diet, I believe that you may be blessed with  children.  I had untreated celiac during my childbearing years.  I miscarried my first child, after that I had 5 healthy children.  My pregnancies were naturally 2-3 years apart and then I lapsed into infertility. 

 

It is possible to have children when you have celiac disease.  Wait, I think, until you have a marriage with their father, so you will both stay commited for those dear ones yet tobe.

 

So how long were you on the gluten free diet before you had your first child?
