  1. Thanks so much for all of you responses and suggestions. I guess I am just going to have to take this one day at a time. I now know that I can't eat Chinese food anymore because I had steamed broccoli with chicken and garlic sauce yesterday for lunch. That afternoon, I had severe cramps and felt pretty bad the rest of the afternoon at work. Last night I had a beer and I don't know if I had a delayed reaction from it but once again I had cramps this afternoon and that's the only thing I think it could've been. I had coffee with sweet-n-low and cream this morning and ate a banana. Am I not supposed to be drinking coffee?? I had a v-8 at lunch and some salted pumpkin seeds because I didn't have much time to eat because I had errands to run and ran out of time. We are having major flooding here in PA and instead of it taking me 45 minutes to get home, it took two and a half hours and I thought I was going to explode on that bus - I had to go to the bathroom so bad and had to hold it. Not a fun experience let me tell you. I had a salad tonight with dressing - but I just noticed that it has "natural flavor" as an ingredient. I hope this doesn't again bother my stomach. Do most of you after you ingest gluten notice symptoms right away or do you notice it the next day??? I'm drinking right now a raspberry flavored sparkling water (sugar-free and caffeine free) and it also has natural flavor. This is really really frustrating. I admire everyone on these boards. I hope I can be successful at this. I can see not eating breads, cakes, and stuff like that but if I have to worry about flavored sparkling water... this is going to be extremely difficult.
  2. I'm just starting a gluten free diet. This is very overwhelming. I have a hard time eating food "plain." I love salad but I cannot eat it without dressing. Does anyone know of any good dressings that I can use?? What about ketchup and mustard? I have a gluten free soy sauce. I use light mayo so I think I have to get rid of that and get the regular kind. I also need to lose weight. I have a horrible time with digestion and just recently bought some digestive enzymes to help. I'm going to need all the help I can get and any tips to help with weight loss. Thank you!!!
