  1. I have tried the tapioca bread and thought it was delicious. My only problem with these breads are that they are so fattening. If anyone one has a low fat version I would love to have the recipe.
  2. Completely Adjusted!

    Been gluten free for almost 4 months. Not really having a bad time of it. Like someone said there are so many mainstream products out there that you can eat. I e-mail everyone and ask if the products are gluten free. I'm learning how to make bread and its really not bad. Good thing you don't have to knead the dough because thats where I'd probably kill it. Bought a cookbook at the gluten free mall .I do have to say that to get started it's a bit pricey, but very challenging. Also someone stated that when you go somewhere you might have to bring your own food. I go to McDonald and bring my own bread. It's really pretty good. Pizzas not bad of course its not dominos but edible. You adjust to it. Don't let eating rule your whole life.
  3. I'm new to this board. Have been Dr. diagnosed with celiac disease. Also been diagnosed with osteopenia. Have been anemic for 28 years. Just had two pints of iron transfused into me although this hasn't significantly changed much. Have to go back for another blood test . Has anyone ever had this iron procedure twice. Also everyone talks about diarea, its just the opposite for me. Constipation is a huge problem with me. The food I can live with, but wish I could just drink a meal instead of having to go looking for all this special food. Also I feel like I've gained 20 pounds even though 2 weeks ago I went to weight watchers and lost 2 1/5 lbs. Does the bloating go away or does it take a long time?
