  1. Hi, I'm a new Celiac too, what a shock, I've never heard of this diease before and I love my pasta and batter fried fish. My family are trying to get the hang of this, as I am, but they don't understand how serious it is.... that I can't have anything with gluten in it, or that I can't come off the diet for a special occasion then get back on it the next day. I guess they honestly believe that this is a DIET and not a life-style change. Anyway I've been reading some past notes and know I have a long way to go before this becomes normal. I'm going to stick with it because I feel soooo much better and I never want to get back in the shape I was in 2 months ago. I'd like to hear from you, This is also a first for me,(posting a note) I don't even know if I'm doing it right.
