Not Sure Where To Post This

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have eaten low carb man times looking back, eating low carb is similar to eating no gluten isn't it?

why didn't I get the same results?? (ok it was much harder LOL at least I get fries, and rice, and potatoes, and dr pepper)

I'm just wondering - why

I seem to like this way better - it's a bit difficult - i miss certain sweets like cookies and brownies - it's a bit more pricy to make 'em right now - but I can get over that b/c I'm feeling better but still - ya know

There are many common carbs that are sources of gluten. The obvious ones include pasta and baked goods such as bread, pizza, cakes, and so forth.

There are many carbs that are gluten-free. Examples include fruits, potatoes, corn and rice.

Gluten can hide in places other than carbs. You would not ordinarily consider soup or broth to be carbs, but often there is gluten in them. Wheat flour is commonly used as a thickener. It can appear in gravies, stews, and other products. Always read the label--wheat must be disclosed in the US and in Canada.

"Low gluten" is NOT gluten-free. If you have celiac disease, you must strive to avoid any gluten source. "Just a little" WILL do damage. But don't become obsessed with possible contamination sources. That risk is, in my opinion, greatly overplayed by many.

when I did the low carb - I did the south beach/atkins - where I had no bread/pizza/pasta none of that - which is why I am confused as to why I am healthier now

the only thing I am thinking -is I used A LOT of soy and teryaki sauce (which I do miss right now)

Check out this thread about which soy sauces you can have.

I think you are feeling better now because you need to be gluten free. Low carb and gluten free are not the same. This is particularly the case if you are eating the prepared foods that are sold for these diets. While some might be gluten free many are not.
