Here Is a kicker, I had started a diet the 80/10/10 kind of, read half the book, and went full into the breakfast and lunch diet. Unlike most or maybe some of yall. Had a good diet before finding out you had a gluten or soy or what other issues. I lived on a Fast-food diet for 20 years. Some home cooked, but that was mostly box meals, processed foods. Finding out my pain for the past entire lifetime was because of gluten and soy and god forbid something else. I resorted to few foods, and starved myself the first 2 weeks until I could figure what foods to eat. IM NOT RICH. I'm averagely poor. This Gluten and soy had ravage my body so badly I Had lost My Business that supported me and my family. Now I’m just picking up the pieces of my life. I FEEL GREAT, hope the go back and get things running again soon and get my Biz back up and running.

 

Until then. I have to make due what I got and buy what I can afford. So getting back to the Topic.

 

I lived on a fast food diet, moved to home cooking after finding gluten and soy. The new diet included corn chips meat eggs and beans, soda. Can’t say that’s very healthy. So I looked for anything that could help. They raise you on a diet in school. its all you know. Cutting out gluten and then soy, cuts out 95% what’s in grocery stores. That 5% sucks. So I started eating the basics fruits and vegetables. The second day I thought I’d cross-contaminated something so bad, as if Id eaten a pizza or drank a glass of soy milk. I do realize now I'm detoxing. OMG I can’t believe how bad I feel, the fog everything hit me. But one thing was out of place. I had allot of energy. But still have knots in my stomach.

I went through some sort of withdrawal when I went gluten-free too. I felt very tired, cranky, and had a headache that I still remember two years later.   LOL  It lasted about 10 days. Hang in there!.

 

I could not handle some raw fruits and veggies at first, actually there are still a few that hurt my stomach, so be aware that the raw stuff can hurt if you aren't used to it. Beans can be tough too.

 

Also, about 50% of celiacs are lactose intolerant when they are diagnosed.  You might want to cut dairy out of your diet for a while too. Many regain the ability to consume dairy after they have healed for at least 6 months, so it may be a temporary thing (if dairy is a problem).

 

Try to consider yourself to be a meat and potatoes man. Rice is fine and eggs are great.  Any veggie and fruit will be fine too.  There is a lot of choice out there and it doesn't have to be expensive.  You'll find some good new recipes soon.

The withdrawal period is real. It will get better, however. I also recommend that you cook you veggies and break them down into a puree or something easier digestible at first. That seems to help some people, including myself.

2 words: Digestive Enzymes. They really do help your poor tired gut break things down.

If you've just started on the gluten-free/SF diet, then your gut it going to take a while to heal and adjust. In that time, it's going to be super fussy and not agree with things that otherwise are perfectly safe. Go easy on it. Cook your veggies. Lean meats. Not too much rice and such. Kick the soda! Don't be tempted by "gluten-free" versions of cookies and pizza and all that.

Soy and gluten is in a lot of processed foods and sauces, but if you stick to whole foods you'll be ok.

The big thing is just getting used to cooking. Every meal. All the time. Ok, it's not that bad, You can make big batches and freeze things, or have lots of leftovers.

It takes time and patience and persistence, but if you're already starting to feel better, then you know you're on the right track.

 

Good luck!

Yup, I cant drink milk at all, makes me sick. never had that issue until I pulled gluten out of my diet. I drink silk almond. Awesome when it comes to baking. just baked a pie, so good to eat. no soy,no gluten,no lactose. sooo good.
