Ugh...so Much Pain! Now I'm A Believer

Recommended Posts

I've only been on the diet a few weeks and doubted that it was making me feel better.....

Well, this Sunday at a picnic I decided to test myself and see what would happen.

I ate brownies and a hotdog bun and cheese doodles. :P

I am STILL hurting. Two days lost so far. I'm a believer now.

Thanks for all those who responsed to my last thread. I still think I'm allergic to dairy too but this pain I'm feeling is ridiculous!! I don't remember feeling so bad when I ate gluten all the time....

I don't get it

Once you remove gluten from your system, your body becomes much more sensitive to it when it's reintroduced and the reactions are worse.

Is that really true!!! So that means I'm in a world of hurt for any cheating, huh?

This is really going to be challenging. I cheated at lunch today. It was a new restaurant and my office went for lunch and we all got burgers. They have a burger with a soft pretzel roll and I thought I just had to try it. Well, it wasn't worth it. and I already feel awful.

I was a bit in denial and even after I said I was a believer....... It's just really hard, like everyone here knows.

I'll do it, though. I quit smoking almost 1 year ago and I know I can quit gluten, too.

I feel like I'm addicted to breads... ESPECIALLY soft pretzels. They are my absolute favorite. KNow I think that they are more of an addiction than anything. I think I'm addicted like I was to nicotine and I just have to quit, quit QUIT!!

No more brownies either!!!! :(

Yes, the addiction to gluten-filled goodies is tough to crack. It gets easier, but I'm sure as an ex-smoker you know, cheat once and it's back to a pack-a-day!

But you CAN do it! And you'll feel so much better when it's all out of your system and you're healed!

Not to mention the fact that brownies and pretzels are very easy to make gluten-free! Try the baking and recipes forum, there was a soft pretzel recipe there recently. And if you don't feel like making them, you can get gluten-free brownies in the freezer section at most health food stores. I like Foods By George........

More pain as you get clean seems to be my response. I'm guessing that as you begin to not overstress the gut with poison it looses some of the excess mucus lining and thus it's protection. Then when you get hit again you digest a lot of it and whamo!

EnerG also makes those little pretzels. They are pretty good, too.

Yuppers I recall my first glutening very clearly, mine was accidental due to my inexpirience with the details of the diet, but on what a wonderful week I had in the bathroom. My hubby says I am becomming "anal" about my kitchen being 100% gluten free, he keeps noticing his "crappy cupboard" keeps getting emptier and emptier :lol:

We went to sturgis the other day, he stopped to fuel up and brought out a bag of frito's for us to share (hes getting good at remembering my junk food, but the list is still so small, lol) he also had some nasty gluteny jerky I wouldn't open it for him as I was eating my chips, then after he finally got it opened then tried sticking his hand in MY bag, oh so did NOT happen!


Just my .00000002 cents worth

If I knew what I was doing years ago I would have half a clue today!
