  1. Oops, I am still learning how to reply. Lisa thanks for your advice. After I posted the original post I did find a couple sites that talk about vomiting. Your list is much more complete then most I could find. Just getting use to gluten free but now giving up balsamic vinegar, well life is just cruel .
  2. My Dr said I am now allergic to sulfites. I was just getting use to gluten-free living but after a few problems with different foods, wine, gluten free salad dressing, grapes etc. The thing is I didn't have most of the symptoms like headaches. I did have scratchy throat, but the main think is after having some things like red wine, I would throw up like I had food poisoning. I could not find this as a symptom. Is anyone out there with sulfite allergy and have you heard of this as one of the symptoms? I am just wondering if there is something else in these same foods that could be the cause.
  3. You might want to take what I say with a grain of salt because I am new at this but I and my husband are both overweight. My 20 yr old son has autism and eats very limited foods and my 16 yr old DD is very athletic but shows signs of celiac or at least gluten-intolerance (need to have her tested) After being sick a long time and eating pretty unhealthy, I was diagnosed and have been gluten free for about a month. A month ago I told my husband, (who is very resistant to change and in evenings a couch potato) DH, you know how sick I've been and really need to get a grip on my diet to figure out how to live gluten free so I am only making gluten-free meals without all the premade gluten-free snacks. What you eat away or what you make yourself is your business. Well 4 weeks later I am feeling better and have lost 10 of the 40lbs I need to lose. My dh was feeling so much better just eating a healthy dinner that he says he is making better choices at lunch, he has lost 13lbs and has even has been taking a walk every evening instead of just vegging in front of tv. I guess what I am saying is that I didn't tell him he had to change but I said I had to change and I needed his help. He really thought he would hate not having my traditional cooking but he is feeling so much more energy that he is changing on his own. BTW my DD is eating healthy and is learning to read her body after having gluten. My DS is slower to coming around because of his eating issues but even he with his special needs is learning if he doesnt eat what I make, he has to make something himself. Added bonus is my kids are learning how to prevent cross-contamination so my Kitchen stays spotless. Like I said. I am new at this, but I hope my family will stay on board because it is making this lifestyle change easier on me. Good luck to you
  4. Good for you!! Glad your feeling better. I am new at this so reading labels are still confusing for me but I will remind myself that when in question, call the company. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Diagnosed A Week Ago

    I feel your pain. I too am new to this. About a month now. Some of my symptoms are gone but some remain. I am also trying to turn this into a positive by changing my attitude. We can go on this journey kicking and screaming or choose to accept and find it an adventure to better health. Good luck to you.
  6. Caveman?

    Wschmucks-Thanks for the info. I have been hesitant taking enzymes and such because I am so new at reading labels but have found and very knowlegable natural store that my be able to double check ingredients with me. I feel like I look like a turtle with the shell in front. This is a new "adventure" for me but spending 45 yrs just doing whatever, I am now learning how to read my body. Can you imagine never paying attention to your body for 45 yrs. Well live and learn. Thanks again for your help.
  7. Caveman?

    I wont bore you all with how I got here. Been yrs developing. I have been gluten-free for about a month although I know I had a couple slipups the first couple weeks. My stomach pains are gone, I have more energy, still have some bowel problems with carry over hemmeroinds. Going in for scope for that next week. Anyway.... My biggest problem is distention of stomach and bloating. I am never hungry and have to force myself to eat. I eat small amts. so I don't get too uncomfortable. I was always a big carb eater and still have been eating brown rice and a few other "OK" grains. I have lost 10 lbs, could stand to lose another 30 but my stomach is huge, tight and uncomfortable. My question after further investagating over the weekend is....Would it benefit me to cut out grains and basically do caveman diet? Have any of you done this and seen improvement in distention, and if I eat a wide variety can I meet my nutritional needs this way? Thanks
