  1. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in Aug 1998 after suffering for 16 years with bizarre symptoms. These included waking up at night with thirst, brief lack of coordination, loss of concentration, tingling fingers, abdominal cramps, slight headache, tearful, anxiety attacks, and reddening around the mouth. I discovered time after time that if I reduced the sugar (glucose, lactose, and fructose) in my diet I improved. Recently I lost a job, became stressed, and suffered for four months with symptoms so I took drastic measures. I cut ALL simple sugars completely and starchy foods such as potatoes and white rice. I think it's called a Caveman Diet. I now eat vegetables (not potatoes), and I grill fish, chicken, and turkey. I also eat wholegrain brown rice. There's no fruit. After three weeks of this I've never felt better. However, I've dropped 3kg (7 pounds) in three weeks although I'm still at the top end of my recommended weight. So it looks like an intolerance to ALL sugars even those produced from starch. Here's my problem. If I continue with this vegetable and meat only diet I'm thinking I'll continue to lose weight. But will I waste away? Surely I should hit a platform weight where it won't drop any more. The caveman lived with it didn't he? What do you think?
