In Topic: 1 Wk. Gluten-Free: Lack Of Appetite Normal?

06 May 2013 - 03:16 AM

I'm one week off gluten (again) after my brief gluten challenge, and I am just NOT hungry. I've been forcing myself to eat a couple of small meals each day because my stomach rumbles and I can tell my body is hungry, but the thought of food usually makes me feel slightly gross. I'm making delicious homemade mostly whole-foods meals, but nothing really tastes amazing, and after I eat I feel like I could have just as happily NOT eaten. Also, it's been a week, and the bloating is just now abating. Is this normal; my gi tract just trying to heal? Or does the loss of appetite stay?

I'm not complaining too much... after all, I have 15 pounds of gluten weight to lose, and a closet full of clothes that I miss wearing... (also miss having cheekbones and one chin)

 

I am not jungry at all either, and I have the exact same thing. I'm allergic to wheat, an 10 days ago, I removed it from my diet. Ever since,... I force myself to eat, but I really don't have an appetite. I guess this is pretty normal then. I have no idea if we'll ever be hungry again though! Only time will tell.


In Topic: No Appetite

06 May 2013 - 02:46 AM

I've been diagnosed as Wheat allergic 11 days ago, and since then, my appetite has diminished to nothing. I've removed wheat completely from my diet, which is most gluten products that celiacs also have to remove. I was also diagnosed peanut intolerant, so there are not many foods I can go by anymore. I have to force myself to eat 2 small gluten-free crackers in the morning, and live off half a carton of yogurt (fat free) with a bit of cucumber and some meat... but I force myself to eat, otherwise, I'd plan on not eating at all. I have to eat, otherwise I get weak, and my tummy rumbles at me like crazy.. I'm currently overweight, and I suspect I'll lose quite a bit during this process... My question is, will I ever regain my appetite?


In Topic: Wheat Allergy And Grain Alcohol

I'm not a celiac, but I have a wheat allergy. I just discovered it 4 days ago, and it's very high. I've been researching, and here's another list of products with vodkas and a few alcohols listed from the grain type and the distilled type

I was wondering what other drinks are wheat free??
