  1. Forgive me, but I'm really upset by the title of this article. A "yuppie" disease? Give me a break. celiac disease and all the others that were posted are real problems for everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic background.
  2. Everyone, thank you so much for your posts. I'm so glad that I'm not alone. I had a realization the other day that before becoming GI/celiac disease, that I spend SO many years not eating this, not eating that all for the sake of losing weight. Now I'm in a position where I can eat so few things that I sort of beat myself up for wasting that precious time. I'm not saying I could have gone out and eaten everything in sight, but I would have taken the time to enjoy those items that I can never have again (at least in the "real and normal" form). It's quite sad how I think (disturbing at times), but I guess it's time for self-forgiveness and time to move on.
  3. Not necessarily a relationship between celiac disease and an ED. But more along the lines of because we have to so closely watch what eat, that it has spilled over to being obsessive about food. I find myself constantly thinking of my next meal, worrying about food, thinking about it and a whole lot more. It's like I'm afraid I won't get to eat again or that more food will be restricted because I have difficulties with so many foods. As it is, I can't do gluten, no dairy, no raw veggies, limited fruits and cooked veggies, no nuts, nothing high in fat, it all affects my system and I feel very deprived.
  4. I'm not sure if I can post this here, but I will. Since we all have limited diets (some more so than others), have you found yourself on a path or potential path to an eating disorder? Counting calories, watching carbs, obsessed with food, body image, etc.... I ask because I'm struggling in a major way and would like the perspective of others in similar situations. Thank you.
  5. Lisa, as always thank you for your insightful information. I typically don't eat frozen meals, but sometimes it's nice to eat something a little different for lunch.
  6. Hello all. Question about modified food starches. I found some frozen meal made my Healthy Choice Smart One's that clearly state the food allergens. It will say wheat if wheat is in there. But I found several without wheat, but found they contain a modified food starch. If the starch isn't coming from wheat, what other form of gluten would this starch be coming food. Is this safe to eat? Thoughts?
  7. Has anyone else found that gluten-free oats cause them problems? Yes, the are 100% gluten-free, dedicated oats.
  8. Has anyone had any issues with eating Safeway brand rice cakes? Thank you.
  9. Maltose

    Thank you Peter. I will give it a try.
  10. Maltose

    You really think it's safe? I'm so tired of being freaked out by every little thing I put in my body and every label I read. I know about the obvious, but this is ridiculous. I know, I know, it's my health. But I'm tired of stressing about everything when it comes to food. That certainly isn't helping my health any. I found the maltose in VSL#3 probiotic powder.
  11. I've done a search and read conflicting information. Is maltose safe for us to eat?
  12. Thank you lorka. I wasn't completely sure if it was gluten free. I am curious to know if anyone has experienced any issues with the product.
  13. Has anyone had any problems with Cool Mint Listerine? Thank you.
  14. Food Glaze

    Hmmm, I wonder if this is what irritates my gut.
