I ALWAYS crave avocados. Especially guacamole!

This latter issue is the one that worries me. Since going gluten-free, I find I'm craving AND eating even MORE starchy foods than I did in wheaty days. I'm not sure if it is some sort of subconscious attempt to re-gluten myself... none of these starches have gluten, but they are often things that would have had wheat in them before. I always liked starchy food, ate a lot of "healthy" grains, but a reasonable balance. Now I find I'm really going overboard, having a hard time stopping. I've been gluten-free for about 6 weeks now, & it doesn't seem to be stopping. Anyone else have this experience? Or have any insights about what's going on?

I found after going gluten-free that the more starchy stuff I ate, the more I wanted to eat it, especially the gluten-free packaged/processed stuff. What worked for me is making sure my meals were balanced with a small serving of starchy vegetable or whole grain (i.e. 1/2 c.), a palm sized portion of protein and vegetables, and a little fat. Eating this way normalized everything fo rme.

I crave hotdogs that have been grilled and slightly burned. I found the applegate hotdogs and they are great! However I found these gluten free buns and they were terrible :blink: So it sort of ruined the expirence for me. I just ate it plain. I don't miss bread so much as I miss the buns that were soft and pliable for hotdogs and brats. Oh and hamburger buns I miss to.

I ate very few carbs before going gluten-free, now they make up about 1/2 my diet - not good. Right after going gluten-free, I craved sweets but couldn't eat them due to the yeast and corn thing so I ate extra salt and extra potatoes. I am finally off the salt kick - luckily I have always had low blood pressure otherwise I might have gone a little bonkers.

Am I missing something in my diet? Since going gluten-free, I have been craving candy and chocolate, and never used to have a sweet tooth. I imagine my body is freaking about about the reduction in refined carbs in general, but oddly enough, I'm not craving bread, but gum drops and jelly beans and the like! This definitely doesn't do much for the waistline when I indulge! Ideas? I am not the BEST at maintaining a healthy diet, but what I might be missing in food intake I make up for with a daily multivitamin.

i crave so bad i almost think im pregnant ( that with the bloating gets you paranoid). usually its chocolate biscuits to dunk in my tea.

I such a major craving for pizza last week. Ugh! Getting glutened last week made me rethink eating a bite of it though. I don't want to do that again! I must find a good dough recipe.

Munchkinette - I tried this recipe last week and my family totally loved it. I found it in a different forum and I don't know who it originated with. It was really satisfying. The commentary isn't mine. I copied it along with the recipe. I did my own with 2 medium eggs at 400 for 20 min and I thought it was fine.

Pizza Crust

you take 3 cups cooked rice (1 cup dry), mix with 1 cup shredded cheddar and 1 (or 2) eggs, mush it out onto a pizza pan, make a lip around the edge to hold in the toppings and bake for 18-20 minutes (I think it was at 375 degress). Then add your toppings and bake or broil until your toppings are the way you like (I like the cheese to brown a little). I baked mine at 450 for 20 minutes before topping. Then 15 minutes after topping. It was still a little too soft in the middle, but absolutely delicious. This might work better in personal sized pizzas.
