In Topic: Gaining Weight - Not Eating Gluten Free Subsitutes

14 October 2013 - 07:20 PM

Have you had your thyroid checked? That can slow things down big time.

If that's not an issue and you just need to find a way to cut calories, I'd suggest more veggies -- especially leafy greens. You get a whole lot for very few calories and they're good for you too :)

In Topic: Confused About Testing Again After A Year Gluten Free.

I think corn allergy/intolerance is pretty common...enough so that a doctor shouldn't be surprised by it!

If you've been gluten free for a year your blood test will be negative.

Hope you feel better soon!

In Topic: Upset Stomach - Gluten Or Stress?

13 October 2013 - 07:58 PM

I personally feel that stress can exacerbate an existing stomach issue, but it won't outright cause one all by itself. Just my opinion though!

I wonder -- has your diet changed at all? Or other habits? For example, when I'm busier/stressed I tend to eat larger meals a couple times a day which tends to get to me if its days on end. Same with too many starchy things, high fat foods, etc.

Sorry you're stressed out and not feeling well!

In Topic: Trialed Those Muffins

Salax, there is a bit of corn starch in them, but no corn syrup solids. I have gotten to the point where I can handle corn starch. I eat it in other things, like Udi's bread, with no problems.

Pugmug (love the name, by the way!), I went five days between servings. I think it really was because they are too rich with chocolate to handle on an empty stomach. I'll find out on Sunday when I try one for dessert.


Ah, gotcha! Hopefully it was just the empty stomach then. They sound delish!

In Topic: Trialed Those Muffins

I've never tried the muffins, but I do find I can really only handle things like that in small doses.

I'll tolerate one serving and be just fine. Then I get excited, try again too soon (like the next day) and things go down hill... So I try to limit imitation processed stuff to once or twice a week and never two days in a row.

I haven't quite figured out what ingredient(s) I'm reacting to, but the one and done rule seems to work for me for now.
