After Being Glutened What Types Of Food Do U Eat?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Im curious ;) This has been the longest in 8 mos that it has ever taken me to get over a glutening. I ate something last Saturday and still havent figured out what i did. So it is now day 7 and i dont feel any better.

Do yal have any recommendations as to what you do? I know not to try anything new during this time but should I be eating bland food? B/c everything i eat hurts me.

Thank u for any advice!

I eat buckwheat hot cereal, so much like cream of wheat it is scarey, with cinnamon and a bit of sugar. It is real high in digestable protein for a cereal and quite soothing. Yogurt if you can tolerate it is also good, it helps to get the good bacteria back in balance. I also make real sure I am taking my sublingual B12, drink lots of water and get as much sleep as my body needs, after the gluten speed effect wears off anyway.

I tend to stick to bland foods after a glutening or when unwell but I follow my appetite/cravings within reason. If you're not already, you may want to try eating many little meals throughout the day. I think it is easier for an already stressed digestive tract to avoid eating too much at once. It is also a good way to keep your blood sugar stable throughout the day which is important to feeling well whether or not you're dealing with diabetes or other blood sugar issues. Also Pedialyte is a must for me at the first sign of GI distress. Being dehydrated is a sure way to make you feel even crummier.

Bland foods for me too!!! I also take probiotics when I get CC'd or glutened cuts the recovery time in half!!!

I try to remember to take them everyday but generally end up taking them if I feel yucky!!!

I never had buckwheat cereal...I tried cream of rice and didnt care for it. Where do you usually buy yours at? I might look into this, it seems like a quick and filling breakfast.

The past 4 years I went to dance camps at UF and USF and constantly got glutened, no matter how hard I tried. Fruit always made me feel better. I would usually eat some sort of fruit, drink lots of water, and take a little nap. Most of the time afer that I would have enough energy to finish my day "normally".

I buy the Pocono brand at either my local health food store or at wegmans. It is certified organic and is grown and packaged by a company in Penn Yan NY about 20 miles from where I live. The company that makes it also makes some other great buckwheat products including a kasha that is great as a replacement for bulgar wheat in tabollah (sp). The companies name is Birkett Mills, they have a website but I don't know if I can post it with all the spam we have had lately. You should find it easily in a search or PM me if you need to.
