  1. It's been 3+ weeks for me and I'm seeing a decrease in belly size. My stomach pains have gone away as well. If she is experiencing stomach pains and distention, perhaps she's getting in gluten somehow.
  2. Good to know. I too am very active...a distance runner. So I'm thin and muscular, I thinks that's why the distention looks so odd and out of place. It's been a few weeks of no gluten and two months of no lactose and I'm starting to see a faint difference...or at least that what's I'm telling myself.
  3. Thanks! I've been dairy free since the end of November. I don't get the cramps that I used to, but no change in the belly yet. I love milk and cheese, so hopefully I will be able to tolerate it in the future.
  4. Thanks for the responses. Yes, milk has been a problem for me too so I've eliminated milk and cheese. I'm not completely dairy free though. I'm new to this so I'm going to be in a trial and error period for a while. As for the elimination diet...I'm starting that on Friday (and start a probiotic)! I'm hopeful it will have good results over time. I'll keep posting my progress.
  5. A distended abdomen has been my most frustrating and uncomfortable symptom. I'm recently gluten-free and hoping this will help, but no change yet. Anyone else have this problem? Did it get better after going gluten-free? How long did it take?
  6. Marathon Training

    Rfin, I hope your healing time isn't related to being gluten-free. I recently started a gluten-free diet and have had IT band problems for years. Crossing my fingers the gluten-free diet is the miracle cure!
  7. Marathon Training

    Zach, I'm newly diagnosed and an avid marathon runner. Haven't raced since my diagnosis though. It's very important to take in protein within 30 minutes after a workout. Whatever you decide to eat, try having a good amount of protein. And within an hour after that have a well balanced meal. If we don't eat enough after a hard workout, it can wear us out. Also, feeling wiped out a bit is normal post-workout. Consider other things in your life as well, not just food, that may be contributing to your tiredness.
  8. I'm new to the gluten-free diet so I don't have previous experience with Udi's hamburger buns, but I will say that they are rather good. The texture and the taste seem good enough for me, and before my diagnosis I was a bread maniac! Makes giving up "real" bread not so bad.
  9. I second the jerky recommendation. I make my own in the oven...very easy and inexpensive. Canned chili, canned salmon/tuna are other ideas packed with protein.
