Gluten Addictive?

Did you know that Gluten can affect the receptors in the brain the same way Opium does? I didn't. It makes sense however, who of us hasn't sat down to a fabulously crafted pizza, or a bowl of pasta and felt that lethargy come on? It also explains why gluten / wheat products can be addictive in their own right, making it difficult for those of us who absolutely know, we KNOW we can't eat them, and yet we just can't help ourselves sometimes.

After the last time I made the mistake of thinking one sandwich won't hurt me, I hope to never fall

down that slippery slope again.

On a recent trip to New Hampshire, we went to Weir's beach and they have fried dough there. Think of those words... fried...dough. I am proud and happy to tell you I did not succumb to the deliciousness. It was a glorious piece of work much like funnel cake, but larger and covered in powdered sugar. It would have exploded in my mouth with "fabulousness," and in my gut like dynamite.

My skin would have "rashed out," I would have gotten puffy, and "headachy," nauseous, on and on the symptoms would have hit, and yet I wanted one! So bad! Now, as we are planning a return trip to New Hampshire, I know I will be faced yet again with those fried dough plates of gorgeousness and pain.

But I hope to resist them again, and wish all of you the luck to do the same my fellow glutenators, when faced with your gluten filled temptations.

check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.

remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."

Thank you for all your help with this. I was also wondering if I could ask and hope you don't mind, will they be able to tell Celiac on the camera or will it be down to the biopsies they take? My endoscopy is on the 9th, and I am worried about not having enough gluten to show.

Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals

Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head! The glasses may not be clean!! I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free) another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is! Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS) i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!! The humour and information has made me feel so much better thanks all xxx
