  1. Gluten Free Debate

    Kamma, should we assume that all those "greater than" symbols (>) were actually intended to be "less that" symbols (<)?
  2. Battling No Food

    The OP has been a member for over four years, but is still eating gluten on a regular basis. There is a problem, but I don't see it being in the people responding. The OP asked a question, and got answers that were honest, even if they weren't what they wanted. UnhappyCoeliac needs to stop eating gluten. Now. Forever. Period. Too bad if that wasn't what they wanted to hear.

    We appear to have an interest in common, Bear!
  4. Oh, yeah. Celiac disease is controversial--my ass. Well, maybe the wheat industry and other interest groups want it to be. There is no offer of a better explanation of villous atrophy while eating wheat, that heals on a gluten-free diet. All encompassing IBS. Doh. It is Bull Shit. Or maybe, the doc thinks, I've Been Stumped. Done grouching for now.
  5. The manufacturer is in a position to KNOW whether the product is gluten-free. The rest of us can only speculate, which is rather pointless.
  6. How many of us are recovering from a massive gluten-free meal yesterday.
  7. Um, I don't want to worry anyone, but there are two board members (both of whom have posted here) that are closing in on 6,000 total posts.
  8. Dejibo, I think that people here are truly trying to support you. They are just flabbergasted by the inconsistencies in what your various doctors are telling you. Perhaps there are too many cooks to make a soup. You don't want to stand up to a doctor--maybe you have been there and have beaten down. Many have. I am going to suggest a concept I learned a long, long time ago for situations where the rules don't make logical sense. It is called malicious obedience. You follow the exact word of the rule, while at the same time defying it. You are forbidden to have almond flour, or almond butter. Obey. You are allowed to have whole almonds. Make them part of your food. After you add the whole almonds to your ingredients, grind them to a powder. Your ingredient is still "whole almonds." Use a mortar and pestle, or a grinding machine.
  9. Bring it on! Harumph!
