  1. I used to make my own crust, but find that these taste pretty good....especially when I'm on a tight schedule. Try brushing on a little olive oil before putting the toppings on. That should make the crust a little crispier also.
  2. Weight Loss

    Hi, I have the same problem as alot of you. I wrote in another post. I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue when I was about 3. That would have been about 1971. I don't ever remember them telling me it was Celiac disease though. They just always called it Malabsorbtion. From what my parents tell me, I was starving to death and they didn't know why. Anyway, I've been thin all of my life and always trying to gain weight. Nothing really works that I can find. I try to stay as gluten-free as possible, but should probably keep a better eye on it. I travel alot and it's hard to stay completely gluten-free on the road. I am taking a vaction for the next several months because of some family problems and I'm going to really try to watch my diet and other things that I may come in contact with and see if this makes any difference. By the way, what is Graves disease? Thanks. Marty Schiff
  3. I am 5'8" and around 115 to 120 pounds. I was diagnosed with celiac when I was 3 years old and I'm 36 now. I've always had an underweight problem. I can build muscle pretty quick, but lose it quick also. I would like to gain some weight if possible. Does anyone have any advise? Are there any weight gain drinks out there that are safe? I have read many of you alls posts and can relate to all of you. Having this disease all of my life, I wish I had a dollar for every time I had someone tell me that I needed to gain weight, or make comments about my weight. People don't realize that to call a thin person "skinny" or make fun of them, is just like calling a larger person "fat". There are so many people out there that just don't know, or understand the disease. I was surprised to see that there are so many people that are having the same problem. Thanks. Marty
