  1. Cornbreads and muffins

    About the cornbread, i get the packaged kind from the gluten free pantry. i really like it but next time i wont make the muffins, just the loaf. All of my non-gluten-free relatives (everyone but me...im the only one on the diet) said they smelled really good.
  2. Losing Weight...

    wow, thank for the advice... ~Nadia~ Those peanut butter bars sound really good. Do you have any info on where i can get them? I love peanut butter and if it is really sweete that woul be good too. ~seeking~ before i was diagnosed i think i checked out the eating for your blood type and it actaully makes sense, but i didnt know it was "ok" to do that and gluten-free for celiac. i agree with the diets vs lifestyle and got used to saying diet with being on celiac. I havent even slightly gone off the diet. But accidents do happen...horror story about that...i cooked the wrong kind of waffles one morning before school (rushing and i was excited, i had a tv appearance that morning with my choir, plus the packages are similiar) ate my waffles thinking wow these taste soo good. on the way down to the tv station i was like omg idont feel good but didnt think i was contaminated. (my reaction is to vomit between 2 and 3 hrs after ingesting gluten) i puke on the bus, then felt better. then down at the station were lined up, and i wasnt feeling good again, i run over to the trash can (in a dress and heels) slip on the tile floor puke all over myself (in front of my choir, the entire newstation, a few teachers.....) my dress was soaked i couldnt go on tv, and it was the most embarrassing event of my life. Thank you celiac... then i had to wait for my mom to pick me up, who immediately knew what was wrong. This was only a month ago...anyways, i wont be going off the diet but its definitely tempting, and seems like a "quick fix". ~midnight~ im not familiar with the gi index but i will check it out. good luck withyour weight too. thanks for the replies and suggestions. sry for the punctuation here its late and im a tenager so i cant really think. some of the "brain fog" that the other posts were talking about, lol. maybe i should tell my teachers that
  3. BOY am i glad someone else brought this up! I thought i was crazy and had cleanliness issues...im gonna try this and hope it works. Thanks
  4. When i was diagnosed with celiac disease i told myself i want gonna restrict my eating of anything else. That i could eat all the junk food i wanted since so much other stuff is restricted. Well...40 lbs later that doesnt work anymore. I crave sweets and obviously cant continue like this. doean anyone have any suggestions or tips how to LOSE wight on a gluten-free diet? I was cntemplating going off the diet, heck that got it noticed in the first place! It would work again, but then i actually thought about it and decided it wasnt worth puking for 2 straight weeks. I am starting to excercise again, but my life is so busy....thank god i dont have a goal date to lose it by. i would prefer 1 lb a week though...Help me please!
  5. I Am 18 W/cd.

    Thats really great that your friends are so understanding. Mine are pretty good after i remind them, but not before they offer me something. Some push it towards you and start to offer then their like oops sry nvm (and their honestly sry) I still have problemswtih my dad understanding ("can you have oats?" no dad, -gee i guess its too difficult after 1 and half year...) I still dont know anyone either which makes me feel more like a freak, but hearing other peoples stories helps and sounds familiar...Im not in college so im not dealing with that yet but im considering going somewhere close to here so i can live at home. Seems easier. Right now my problem is traveling! I go on trips with school and have 3 big ones coming up! The last trip was pretty bad i came home and practically binged, no food with and nutritional value for 5 days, (not to mention no private bathroom) My next trip is to New york for a week, then cali with my family. If anyone has any suggestions how to travel (without looking too wierd) i would greately appreciate it!
  6. I'm 14 And Need Snacks!

    OOO!! make rice krispies with fruity or cocoa pebbles (or other cereal) trail mix and mixed nuts (dont eat them every day, im sick of them after doing that...) popcorn gluten-free yogurt cheese crisps (white corn tortilla shells-mission brand even says gluten free on it!) fruit (can be a pain in the butt, but try canned, pineapple and pears are good) gluten-free cokies of course tapioca (kozy shack brand specifies gluten-free) hope that holds you over for a littel while
