High 5 for day 1. I have sent Mr Mindwarp to the shops to get more meat veg and eggs :). I am having encores for breakfast. That should make him wince, he is not a fan of sprouts or mornings...


- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

I will be wincing myself ----as I am unable to eat eggs alone without nausea (can do them baked IN things)

and have no clue what's for breakie...except ..encores. Coffee with full fat coconut milk and no sugar was....er, um interesting.

:lol: and when 5:00 happy hour rolls around soon....I may be wincing then too..

I am doing this for the sole purpose of seeing if I can reduce inflammation. Losing weight is a side benefit

of course, but the reality is, I do not feel well most days and the pain index... just plain sucks.

WOOOO!!!! I'm waiting until I'm free to eat bacon to make some. I know I could just make it and refrain from eating it. I know that in theory I have the willpower to refrain, after all I've made it this far with all this other crap. But I'm also honest with myself, I'll tell myself to double up my topamax and dig in and probably still end up half blind. :lol:

Totally with you on this train of thought -- my will power has gained a lot of strength this year -- getting taken back out last spring clinched it for me -- I can now sit comfortably with all sorts of treats others are munching, crunching and praising without blinking an eye (well maybe I blink, but it is easier than it used to be) -- even the RBJ waited a month before I tasted -- finally gave in to "make sure" it really is as good as reported ;)

PS...I trained the teen chef in the family to make RBJ this morning -- I'm certain this family will not be without it for long -- hubby said something like they have been eating too much bacon as they were munching candied bacon on Christmas morning -- could have heard a pin drop on the carpet -- needless to say all are happy that Mom does the grocery shopping once again -- things are right in our world!

If I may kinda sorta jump on the bandwagon and commiserate --as of today I am embarking on the 8 Hour Diet. 8 hours of eating (sensibly but normally), 16 hours of fasting (no cal beverages ok).

I'm weak and can not give up dairy--had to for years and now that I have it back....I...just...can't :unsure:

Today has been ok so far. I figure I'll give it 6 weeks.

I did have a small handful of macadamias mid afternoon when I thought I might keel over, but that was because my daughter woke at 5 this morning. I had my decaf with creamed coconut. The milk I tried a few weeks ago was better. My tum feels happy, full but light if that makes any sense. I confess I spent some time looking at suitable mayo recipes earlier. There are some and it appears to be a acceptable :).

I spent a long time in denial about dairy. I am secretly hoping when I reintroduce it it will be ok. Fingers crossed (I'd happily do bribary if I thought it would work)

yes, losing dairy (and grains and legumes..... and booze ) is a tough one, but I've done it before and I can handle it for a month or so (she said with enthusiasm....)

I remember how when I lost those (plus some more), how freakin limited my diet was--but worth it in the end. Now, I just want to lose some weight.....I am on some meds that have cause a weight gain :angry: , and the clothes are getting tight :(and....I finally was honest with myself and my knee pain getting worse coincided with the weight gain, which was pretty sudden with the onset of the med. <_< So..... time to get my arse in gear B)

Good News on the Cabana Boyz front (& backs ;))

We need look no further than the volleyball courts of South Mission Beach - I spied many glorious candidates this morning - no pics - I know a few people down there - with my luck a photo of me taking pics of/oogling at our candidates would end up on FB!

Sounds like you are enjoying yourself on your cabana assignment. Maybe go incognito?! We need pictures for inspiration. I mean project. I mean, well, you know... ;)


<p>Confirmed celiac disease February 2011 from biopsies. Strictly gluten free March 18 2011.Diagnosed with fibromyalgia April 13 2011.3 herniated discs, myofascial pain syndrome, IT band syndrome, 2 rotator cuff injuries - from an accident Dec. 07 - resulting in chronic pain ever since. Degenerative disc disease.Osteoarthritis in back and hips.Chronic insomnia mostly due to chronic pain.Aspartame free May 2011.

I've been grain free for over a month now, and have been 99% sugar free for over a year.

Honestly, I freaking hate it, but I just force myself to not think about it, because my bowels

are the closest to normal they've EVER been, and my general level of inflammation was

just getting way too out of hand. I may give 'fringe' grains (buckwheat, quinoa) a shot next

summer. For now, I'll stick with it because it's working. Hopefully when my general stress

levels are able to recede a bit food will stop biting back!

The recipe for the sour dough crust PLEASE !!!!!! :D

Here we go. This is from Mireille on Delphi forums:

1 1/4 c. rice flour

2 c. tapioca flour

1 c. dry milk powder

3 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

1 tsp salt

2 t. dry yeast granules

1/2 c. warm water (or a little more depending how thick is the dough)

1 c. sourdough starter*

1 Tbs sugar

3 Tbs shortening

1/2 c. hot water

4 egg whites, at room temp.

In bowl of a mixer, - mix flours, dried milk, xanthan gum & salt.

In small bowl or cup: Add sugar to ½ cup warm water and dissolve. Add the yeast and stir. Let sit until bubbling.

In small bowl or cup: Melt the shortening in the hot water

Blend the dry ingredients, and with the mixer on low, add the hot water/shortening, then, the egg whites, and finally, the sourdough starter & yeast/water/sugar.

Mix at High for 4 minutes.

Oil 2 pizza pans (I use large cookie sheets with rims) and sprinkle with cornmeal.

Spoon the dough onto the pans. It is very sticky. Dip plastic gloves or saran wrap or your fingers in olive oil pat the dough until not more than 1/4" thick. Let rise a little. Time varies depending of temperature. Hard to get smooth. Mine was very bumpy and didn’t rise much. It will smooth a bit when it cooks.

Bake at 475F for a few minutes until it starts to brown. Freeze at this point if you want it for later. If you use it right away, add your topping and bake until cheese is bubbly and the outer of pizza dough is golden.

*Starter:

2 1/4 tsp dry yeast granules

1 cup lukewarm water with 1 tsp of instant potato flakes (mix well)

1 tsp sugar

1 c. white rice flour

Use a big jar, or the such.

Dissolve yeast into the potato water. Stir in the sugar and rice flour. Cover with a saran wrap and let the jar sit out until fermented (1-3 days), stirring every few hrs at first. The mixture will bubble up and ferment and then die down with a skim of liquid on the top. Be sure to stir well before using. The consistency should be about that of pancake batter.

Replenish after use by feeding the remaining starter with 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water and 3/4 cup rice flour, each time you use some. I didn’t try to replenish. Most gets used in the recipe.

I've been dairy, grain and legume free for 16 months!!! It gets easier....loads easier once you find safe ingredients :)

booze - now that I suggest trialing at least once per month

Or worse.

News at 11: Crazy ski-goggled woman caught taking semi nude pics of bronzed young men.

Claims it's for a "secret society of women who need them for their enclosed private compound to perform various duties such as shoveling, serving drinks, eating gourmet meals and just being hunky. Possible reanimation of dead handsome male celebs also involved in the bizarre cult plans..... Charges pending..."

seriously....anyone reading that sentence on its own?....would wonder exactly what the hell we are up to on this thread.....

and congrats on all these victories. :)

I think I'm going to have some squash tonight with my burgers. I'll probably yank a pack of cookies out of the freezer too for a snack or something later.

I sort of feel like I should be all jumping on this whole new year, try some new diet thing but frankly I'm scared to try anything until I'm done testing all my tyramine foods to see what bothers me and what doesn't. I'm a good way through my list though and hoping that maybe by the time I head back to my neurologist in March that I'll be able to embark on something new since I'll have a lot more options open to me.
