Lara Bars

Recommended Posts

I was so happy to find these after reading the post about how good they are and ppl loving them..well, about an hour or so after eating one I got the most incrdible stomach pain, it lasted 6 hours then calmed down to something I could handle with out tears.

Has anyone else had trouble with them??

I can't figure out what could have done it

thanks, Betty

Could it be the dates in them? Dates give some people D and major D cramping even when eaten in moderation. Are you sure it was the Lara Bar?

I personally haven't had any trouble with Lara Bars. I love them! I hope you're feeling much better by now.

I have one in front of me and the first engredient is dates, and they definitely can have a prune like effect on some people. Larabar is one of those where they are pretty hardcore about cross-contamination and I don't think they make anything with gluten in their plant.

THe other thing too, is it is raw food. The first time I ate raw food my body absolutely rebelled and I was in the bathroom for an entire afternoon. If you're not used to that much fiber all at once, it could just be that.

Yea--I was thinking the fiber and also possibly the nuts. Sorry you got so sick!

Raw veggies and nuts are probably too irritating for you. I'm sorry, Betty, I don't remember--have you been gluten-free for long? Quite possibly, if it hasn't been too long, your intestines are still healing. I had a lot of inflammation--the doctor could see it at the beginning of my intestine--he called it the antrium. It takes a while for that to heal.

patti, I'm about 3 1/2 months gluten-free...still healing I think, though I did read an article yesterday saying with celiac the healing takes about 2 months and pain will stop within a week!! I get mad when I read that stuff.

My stomach is so raw and sensitive I can't even eat read meat anymore, god I miss burgers lol

I think it took me at least 2 years before I could tolerate things like Larabars without having immense pain. They are raw and full of fiber and for someone still healing, it can be VERY hard on your poor damaged intestines. Stick to really mild foods for now... That is what I had to do. Rice, Potatoes, Baked Chicken, cooked veggies (simple ones like peas) Applesauce, Yogurt, and the only substitute product I would use was EnerG's crackers... plain. Yes it was bland and boring and yes I had to take supplements, but eventually I was able to start adding foods back in. Now I am thrilled when I can have taco night with spicy meat and taco sauce all over the tacos! (not just plain ground beef and cheese in the taco shell... oh, and it took a while before I could tolerate the corn taco shells too...
