Great news and congratulations.

On google search for blueberry bliss energy bar recipe. There's a greatl recipe there for making batches of homemade energy bars. It's quite flexible so if you don't like blueberries swap for other dried fruits or use mixed berries, swap almonds for walnuts etc.

I use these as snacks between meals. They are hugely calorific and come in handy if there aren't any gluten free options available for a few hours.

In Topic: How Long Before Your Mood Symptoms Of Glutening Take To Kick In?

10 January 2014 - 07:16 AM

After 5 months being accident free I was 'glutened' last night. Cross contamination I suspect.


In the past I accidentally ate gluten on average every 10 days. Reactions were immediate.and strong.


This time, 5 months since my last accident, reaction took 14 hours to kick in. Lots of physical issues but mentally: feeling blue, irritable, saying inappropriate things without thinking, not being able to construct a sentence properly either verbally or typing. Feeling slightly 'unstable' emotionally - being super happy one minute and taking things personally the next. Not able to say what I mean.


I expect over the next week or so to be very blue, anxious, obsessive and irritable. it'll clear up by February hopefully.


Hope this helps!

In Topic: Does Dh Ever Go Away?

I fully agree. My body has been knackered this year. Mentally its been really stressful too - the exacibator as you say. I think there have been a knock on effect (or butterfly effect maybe? ^_^ ) on my state of mind.


Since hearing the results of my endoscopy and biopsy, which I've been waiting for for so long, a weight has lifted and my mood is improving. Hopefully, things will fall into place the longer I am off gluten.


Thanks for the reassurance guys !

So just got back from the GI consultation. Seems like stress is the culprit  for my dh in particular... time to get some councelling done to sort this sh out!

In Topic: How Do I Gain Weight Fast

11 December 2013 - 05:55 AM

HI, I'm with Wildwood's husband (I'm in agreement...)!


Always been the skinny guy, easily lose weight no matter what or how much I eat and no matter how much excercise I cut out. A few month back I felt a little better and tried to do excercise and weight train, but my body wasn't ready - I couldn't absorb calories/protein to replenish the reserves in my body. I lost weight rapidly again. Still the skinny guy.


Fast forward a couple of months. After a 3 week holiday/rest I seem to be healing thanks to more sleep. I had 3 weeks of nights with 10 - 12 hours of sleep. After this rest I found I could eat food without digestive enzymes. I had more energy, I just felt ready to get moving and excercising again. I am now back on the weights, doing more excercise - I'm not losing weight this time. In fact, 4 pounds stayed on this week.


I think, and I could be wrong, sleep is key and depending on how well you are absorbing food, excercise and weight training is mandatory for weight gain. Your body has been skinny for so long - it needs a reason to put on weight! Lift some weights. 


The other secret ingredient? Time - you may just not be ready yet.
