  1. My mother in law is a retired nurse, she's always used white bread because she's allergic to wheat. She reads labels, but tends to assume she knows what things are made of instead. She's in her 70's and finally realizing she's been doing it wrong.
  2. Overweight With Celiac

    This is really fascinating to me. I've not been able to lose weight no matter how extreme diet and exercise most of my life. I actually gained when dieting and doctors never believed me. The best I did was atkins induction until half a graham cracker and a drink of beer I bloated up 2 sizes in a day and stayed that way. Now I know it was gluten. Since going gluten free about a month ago I have lost the bloat in my upper abdomen and some weight I'm sure. Don't have a scale anymore. I had a gallbladder attack that led to me figuring out I'm sure I have celiacs. No insurance so I won't be getting tested (also be giving myself a pre-existing condition) I am eating more of the processed breads and stuff because I cut out meat,eggs,dairy and most things on the gallbladder avoid list. Normally I eat more low carb and very little sugar. I'm adding meats and eggs in slowly and doing fine. The last thing I gave up after the gallbladder thing (which I realize now is the rib pain I've had for years) was gluten and all the pain went away in my gallbladder area, and the rest of my body. My dad wasn't much older than I am when he died from colon cancer. This forum is great I am learning so much and there are other people going through what I've been going through.
