Gluten Free 2 Weeks

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey there.., I have been gluten free for 2 weeks now. I am finding it tough to find a few substitutes for things I enjoy but over all doing ok with it.

However I was feeling a little better and thought maybe I would feel even better taking a probiotic. Now I feel like between the extra fruit, salad and new foods my body is back in gas/bloat and you get the picture.. Anyone have anything similar happen to them? I stopped the probiotic as that was the latest thing added before the ground feel out again.

Hi, I've been gluten free for 1 week, and also was feeling a little better,but then tonight felt horrible and nauseous. I had just drunk a vitamin water, so that was maybe the culprit, but I also had cheese for lunch, and apparently new allergies like lactose intolerance can come up as you detox from gluten. It's hard because you want to help your body, as you did with the probiotic, and I did with the vitamin water. I feel like I've been unknowingly poisoning myself for so long, that now that I know I want to make amends and quickly replenish all the vitamins etc. I've been without. But from what I've read on this forum, most of the old hands say to keep it really simple in the beginning. I'm going to try to stay off of the foods that I've read about that have caused problems for other celiacs, and then eventually add them back in and see how it goes. Good luck to you and me both:)

Hi,

I found myself getting much more sensitive to gluten after I had been on the gluten-free diet a while. Also, I think our bodies go through a period of adjustment to the new diet. The gut bacteria balance may change as a result of different foods being introduced and other foods being removed. That process should self correct after awhile. Pro-biotics are good but many of them have dairy in them also.

A simple basic whole foods diet cooked at home is a great way to get started. Ditch all the processed foods (boxes, cans, etc) and eat things you cook from scratch. Look for foods with one, 2 or 3 maximum ingredients. Like frozen peas with water salt etc.

Some of us do develop or discover other food intolerances as we go along. Sometimes they are temporary and go away other times not. Dairy is a common one that we have, which may possibly correct after healing a while. Soy is another one and also corn, nightshades, eggs, etc. Everyone is different so it is impossible to say for sure you will/won't have another intolerance.

CC (cross contamination) is another issue. Little bits of gluten in a toaster, or on a knife shared with gluten eaters can get us.

Pepto Bismol is a good thing to keep around for accidents, it may help block some damage, or at least irritation. Avoiding sugary foods for a while may help also.

It just plain takes a while to learn how to eat safely on this diet. But it is not impossible at all, just a learning process like any other.

Don't forget to check all your meds, vitamins, teas, coffees anything you eat or drink.

Welcome to the gluten-free world! We are probably the healthiest eaters around since we avoid a lot of chemicals and food additives for the most part.

Hi, Thanks for letting me know of your experience it is very helpful to have feed back from other people. As good as my husband is about supporting me when leave the house he has other options for food mine are still limited.

I hope you are doing well.
