Foods To Avoid

Recommended Posts

While I don't think its healthy to focus on what you CAN'T have at all I think it might be usefull for new people..well heck all of us to see some ideas of what products are not ok. Other than the obvious of course. We all know there are lots of things out there that have hidden gluten in them. My biggest mistake at the beginning....any Asian food. I thought, geez no pasta, rice based it has to be safe...WRONG!!! Of course my heart was broken until I got some gluten-free soy sauce and found the gluten-free menu at PF Changs that is. In any event, sometimes I think its helpful to have that list of NEVER TO BUY things too, maybe it could save someone an accidental glutening!

Here's a link to celiac.com's forbidden list. I don't know if it will work because apparently I'm not quite as computer savy as I thought...but just go to the HomePage and scroll down to the Safe/Forbidden Links.

Forbidden List

EDIT: Yay it worked! So, I like this list because it has a lot of things you might see listed in ingredients and be unsure of.

Gluten-free since July 8, 2006

Casein-free since October 16, 2006

Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.

Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006

Stupid cheese addiction....2/07

Dx Hypothyroid in 1993

Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06

Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

I wonder if the McDonald's fries vary from state to state--I was never glutened by their fries in Michigan or Long Island New York--NEVER! I no longer can have potatoes, so I don't eat them, but my sister still does in Michigan and has never had a problem.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Funny you mention that...I had them twice in Michigan while travelling and had no problems. I figured though that since it was the McDonald's at the airport, they had dedicated fryers since they were so busy. Either way, I didn't have any problems.
