Didn't Get To Sleep Until 3 Am, Trying To Figure Out Why!

Recommended Posts

Guest keegans_mommy

Ok, I had a busy day yesterday but busy is normal for me. Here is my day:

Breakfast:

flaked quinoa sweetened with honey and raisins and salt

orange juice

Lunch:

Burger King (thinking this is the culprit)

double Whopper made without the bun

fries

2 med. diet coke's

After workout snack:

2 boiled egg whites

Special treat:

1 piece of ghiradelli chocolate with carmelized almond pieces

Dinner:

chicken thigh (w/onions, garlic & salt)

rice (w/ salt & butter)

broccoli

And that is it! I knew I was in trouble when everybody was going to bed and I started feeling panic attacks. I stayed up until 11 then tried to go to sleep. Nope, not until about 3 am. DH's alarm goes of at 4 so I woke up then. At 6:40am my 3 year old got me up and so goes my day today. *yawn* :(

I agree with Momma Goose... Burger King is probably not the safest place to eat. They don't even have a list of gluten free selections (just wheat free).

Burger Kings fries and the cc from the whopper would no doubt make ME sick and I am not sure about the chocolate.

Please forgive me for my ignorance but what is "cc"?

I'm rather sad because I love BK fries! :(

:) CC is short for Cross Contamination, which is very high at fast food joints. If you hunger for french fries. McD's is considered gluten free by the Celiac Sprue Association. (although, some here has reacted to the fries, perhaps too much grease?) And McD's (for the most part) have dedicated fryers, which means that nothing but french fries are put into the grease.

There is A LOT to learn about having Celiac! ;)

There have been quite a few reporting in various threads that once they're fully on a gluten free diet, they're more sensitive to some things, not less.

One of my theories about that is that a person on a gluten free diet's whole system isn't clogged up with additives that are in so many foods that celiacs have to avoid, and so a person can ~feel~ the effects of something that sets the body off more easily. Anyone coming off a fast will notice the effects of something that breaks the fast...

From your list of things that you ate, in addition to the BK items mentioned, you had a couple diet cokes...they have caffeine in them. And there's that chocolate. I've seen little kids so hopped up on taking in sweet and chocolate later in the evening than are usual for their little bodies that they just can't sit still....parents of small children might weigh in on that.

A lot of people can't take any caffeine at ALL after a certain time of day, if they expect restful sleep that night. My limit is about noon.

I think the BK fries have a coating on them, which is suspect. But even if not, they fry them with the onion rings, and then dump them in a bin with the onion rings. I don't see how they would NOT be cc'd. :(

Oh this just stinks :( I love BK fries MUCH more than McD's!

Thank you for letting me know what CC is :) Yes! So much to learn and I am becoming sad each time I find something else I cannot eat. BK didn't bug me before when I was gluten lite but it may have yesterday.

Now I did have 1 1/2 cokes at BK but it was for lunch and I normally do that once a week and don't have issues and I am a choco-holic LOL So I am not really suspecting that. Although things seem to be changing for me so they are possible!
