Started Diet-Worse At First!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it normal to get worse after abt 10 days on the diet? Im suddenly worse than before. I wonder if I'm more sensitive? I accidentally took a bite (like two flakes) of the wrong cereal. Thought it was my gluten free stuff but it wasn't. But I was already worse buy wow even worse after that. Maybe I need to recheck all my meds. But still, I'm really taking in no other Gluten that I know of. Any thoughts?

If you could list the foods you're eating, we could take a look and see if any of them might be more of a gluten cc risk (cross-contamination).

Also, what do you do in your kitchen to cut down on gluten cross-contamination? Separate pots and pans, separate work station for food prep? New toaster? New cutting board? anything else?

that might help us help you figure this out. :-)

To my mind, from the brief description, sounds like you may be getting gluten slipping in there somewhere. Many of us become more sensitive to gluten - or our reactions are more noticeable - after we have been off of it for a bit. So we realize that foods we thought were safe are actually making us sick.

Thats Right! We do get more sensitive to gluten after we have been away from it. 10 days is'nt that long you may have ups and downs at the start. That being said there are many ways to get hidden gluten in your diet. I had quite a few mess ups in my first 6 months. CC could be a problem if your sharing a kitchen. Be careful not to share butter, condiments, jelly etc with any gluten eaters. Have your own toaster, collander, can opener, cutting board and don't use any wooden spoons or scratched teflon pans-they got me once. You may want to double check any medications. Also check your toothepaste and any cosmetics like lipstick or chapstick. It is better to be over cautious especially at the start than to be sorry. It takes time to navigate your way through this disease and it can be very frustrating at times. It might be a good idea to start with just safe whole foods that don't hide any gluten for a little while and see how you feel with that.

I'm not celiac but got much worse when we went gluten free, not only because of increased sensitivity, but also because the gluten free processed foods I tried were bad for me. We ended up doing the GAPS diet which has been a huge improvement. We also cleaned top to bottom to get rid if cc. I have an article on the blog linked from my profile on going 100 % gluten free that may help you.
