What If I Took The Bread Off?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok this is My Newbie question, What if I took the Bread off? I go to Burger king get a Fat Whopper and just ditched the Bun? or Get a Sub platter at work so can I dump out it's veggie cheese and meat stuffing on to a plate and ditch the Sub roll? I am really wondering if that is so wrong? I'm guessing I would live considering all the Gluten I have missed so far, I believe they is always a chance that a minuscule amount will always get through and it's is ok. Or am I so wrong?

unfortunatly you can't just take the bread off... even a miniscule molecule of gluten will cause damage to your insides EVEN IF you don't notice any symptoms. BUT most people become hypersensitive to gluten after going 100% gluten free and the crumbs from the bun left on your burger would definitely make you feel sick.

oh if it were just that easy. It's not. BUT it is easy to ask the server at Burger King or McDonald's or Wendy's to just fix your burger PLAIN W/O the bun... They have to. And if they serve it to you with a bun you have every right to send it back and ask for a new one and explain it HAS to be a fresh one and CANNOT have touched the bun.

Yup I echo everyone else.....even a slight amount will affect you. I wondered the same thing right after I was diagnosed, but I learned the hard way......100% gluten-free is the only way! ;)

I'm going to echo with NO NO NO NO NO!

In regards to Subway - My fav thing before being diagnosed was subway salads, ate em like three days a week. After being diagnosed I figure, no problem, its just a salad. The problem is, everything in Subway is covered in bread crumbs. Even if they change thier gloves, the last 20 times they dipped thier hands in there to get salad and topping they just finished cutting open a loaf of bread.

I have this bread crumb radar now, and I never realized how many bread crumbs get everwhere!

Needless to say, I've never had anything form Subway since.

Heres the fun part, which someone else mentioned. As your body starts to detox from all the gluten, it can get more sensitive than it was. About a month in, I ate some slices of cheese that had been cut with a knife that had been used to cut bread earlier that day ( I didn't know it at the time). I became violently ill in about 20 minutes after eating. That really brought home the "one crumb can cause damage" thing to me.

If I was starving in the middle of the Sahara, sure. But other than that, if its ever touched gluten, it doesn't come near me.

LOL, this is great, because this is exactly what I did last week. I just get frustrated with the whole thing, eating this way. SO, my son and I were out all morning and stopped at McDonalds. I ordered a fish and took off the bun, thinking a little is better then a lot. I usually get sick with in 40 minutes of eating her anyway, and we have called it McThrowups when we go. Few and far between now.

Are you talking about the Filet-O-Fish? Its also dipped in batter and fried with other battered things. Anything that is battered is off-limits, cause its going to be full of flour.

No that I'm saying anything new here--but I agree, No! :) As as elonwy asked--what is the filet of fish? I thought Mcky D's only had fried fish...(I could be wrong though, I don't ever eat fast food....)
