If I ate wheat, maybe just half a piece of toast, the next day I would have 2 slices. Within a week I would be eating cakes and pastries every day. It would stop after about 3 weeks, when I would be very violently sick.
I am not proud of this.
It happened about every 18 months.
While I was going through diagnosis, my husband said he thought something must be medically wrong, as he had never known me not do something I wanted to.
When I got diagnosed and went totally gluten free, the cravings went.
When I get glutened now, I eat like it is going out of fashion, and feel starving for 2 days. I stay gluten free, and it passes.
I see now that when I was eating all that 'healthy' rye and getting cross contaminated, I never gave myself a chance to get better, so the occasional binges happened.
I feel better physically now I have quit the gluten, but I also feel better about myself now I have control.
If you make it this far OP, I hope you can pick out some useful information from everything here, and give yourself the gluten-free future you deserve.
