  1. Best Vitamin D?

    The sun. 15 minutes per day. No sunscreen. No washing of exposed body parts 2 hours before or after.
  2. Help Plan A Trip To L.a. Inside

    I am headed to Los Angeles and have never been there before. Please provide pro tips on hotels that cater to gluten free and/or would be within good striking distance by foot or car of gluten free friendly groceries and sit-down restaurants or quick-meal establishments. Assume mid priced or luxury accommodation pricing is fine. Any geographic area is fine. Downtown? Beverly Hills? Laguna Beach? Tell me about L.A. gluten free here...
  3. Anyone In Florida?

    I'm moving to Florida in a couple years; seeking friends in the meantime. I'm 30 and travel there often.
  4. Elimination Or Cave Man Diet

    I'd like to add to this and my post that it is critical that you not cook the lamb in butter, add sauce to the lamb, or buy seasoned lamb. Everything has to be prepared perfectly plain for you to understand what you are allergic too. That means no seasoning, olive oil, butter or pan spray, etc. Also, I personally would veto high fat meats to start. I'm not sure where lamb stands, but I would pick the leanest lamb you can find; lambsteaks perhaps. The reason is that many people with stomach disorders have some kind of fat malabsorption issue, so fatty meats will screw with you.
  5. Elimination Or Cave Man Diet

    Just use your common sense and create your own diet. Tomorrow, eat only potato. Maybe do it for two days. Feel okay? Then on the third day add hamburger. After 4 days, if you feel okay, add eggs. Feel sick suddenly? Then stop eating the eggs. Continue adding foods like this. And only add none processed, no preservative, no additive foods. If you were to add in Rice Chex on Day 6 and suddenly get sick then who in the world can say for sure which ingredient made you sick? You'll just end up speculating about this or that ingredient, or whether it contained gluten. Stick to fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, meat, and potato initially. Do not drink anything else but water for two weeks. Nobody ever needed tea, sprite or coffee to survive.
  6. Ditch all chemically altered or preservative encased foods. Eat fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood, rice cooker rice, raw bars. Absolutely no preservatives, additives or chemicals. This includes virtually any type of sauce or any processed foods, cereals, tap water (chemicals), yogurt, chips, dip. Your symptoms will improve.
  7. Respectfully, I disagree. Birds of a feather flock together.
  8. Previously Wheat Intolerant - Now Boom!

    Try germinated brown rice. Its the only grain I can eat. Regular brown rice is problematic for some reason.
  9. Neuro symptoms could be. They are very difficult for an adult to describe, let alone an 8 year old. I would describe celiac neuro symptoms as just not feeling with it; your nerves don't accurately respond to stimuli around you; would be felt most acutely in a busy setting where all your senses were activated at once. Thus, you see how everything around you would feel like it was moving too quickly if you couldn't keep up.
  10. 7 full days. Try not to get too anxious about it; that will not help the stomach. Just let it ride its course.
  11. Grain Free Diet

    The chart numbers are misleading in the sense of servings. For example, typically people do not limit their grain intake to one cup at a time. You'd likely eat two or perhaps three cups at once. Two cups of brown rice as a side dish is not an eye popping amount. A serving like that is equal to two baked potatoes in terms of carb count. Moreover, while government recommendations are not the be all and end all, they provide some guidance. Specifically, they recommend 300 carbs per day. That's 8.1 potatoes. I have tried the grain free diet. The adjustment was not tough, and it did help my stomach. But over the course of a year my adrenals wore out. It was not clear why but I understand a lower carb diet can cause that. I don't recommend and state proceed with caution.
  12. Grain Free Diet

    You'd have to eat 6-8 potatoes or yams per day to match your old carb intake. If you eat 8 yams per day you'd be in the bathroom all day long. 6-8 old potatoes does not strike me as healthy. Eat a helping of beans with every meal and you'll spend all the interim time in the bathoom. Cassava might work but good luck finding it at your local Piggly Wiggly. A lot of these alternative foods just are not very practical. I have tried all this before; it really is not practical. That said, I am not totally against it. In various ways I did feel better when I was grain free, but I would not advise it to anyone. I think there are other options that people tend to look past.
  13. gluten-free Accommodation In Ny And Boston

    In NY there are two diners that serve gluten free food at breakfast. I would recommend you camp near them. One is near 42nd and lexington avenue, which is in the Grand Central Station area. The other is around 80th street and 1st avenue. There are not as many hotels in that area as there are near Grand Central, but there are a bunch more gluten-free dining spots.
  14. Grain Free Diet

    No, not healthy. The reason it is not healthy is that you have to take in a certain minimal amount of carbs for your body to function properly, and you won't meet that minimum eating veggies, fruits, and nuts, unless you eat those things literally all day long. Your body has evolved to live, to some degree, off carbs. Now, if your stomach has unevolved to not process so many carbs due to an event like celiac or IBS, I sympathize. There are various other options you can try. One is to avoid all processed foods, or at minimum, processed grains. Basically all bread you buy in the store is processed. 99% of the rice you find in the store is processed. Instead of a bag of uncle ben's, buy a bag of brown lundberg rice, cook it and see how you do with it. Better yet, try germinated rice, which is difficult to find but goes down much easier in an impaired stomach than even raw cooked rice.
