  1. The Fatigue...!

    I take some stuff called arabinox, it increases the immune system. Before being gluten-free I was fatigue all the time, and had the strangest infections. After the diet it all went better, but not as good as now with the arabinox. Check out the internet for, it may help you!
  2. Hi Violet, I've asked myself so many times "am I the only one out here on this planet who doesn't eat gluten and sugar". It really hard to find sugarfree and glutenfree stuff. I live in Holland and France, and I travel a lot. Though it's not really difficult to find glutenfree products in Europe, these breads and cakes always contain sugar or cane sugar (which I don't eat either). As you will know, surfing the web is of little help to find the desired food. So when I found out that this is how it is, the only solution I saw is to adapt and bake stuff myself. To sweeten I use dried fruits, (a small handfulf of) raisins and to add some taste spices like coriander, cinnamon, cardomon. I just set myself to adapt never taste sweet things again. And after some weeks, I found that things I never considered sweet, start to taste sweet. It's not easy. I have a busy life, being single, 28 years of age and at the start of my carreer and on the road a lot. So, if I am at home, either in Holland or France, I have a kitchen and I can bake the most healthy things myself. These are the recuparation times. And yeah, it boring sometimes. Come home and cook everyday, make stuff for breakfast as well. Sometimes I feel like some old granny in the kitchen, it doesn't feel very trendy. But in the end I feel better this way. While traveling and without opportunity to cook, is to make the best of it. So I eat nuts, raw veggies, cheese, fresh fruits, puffedrice cakes. And if all is unavailable: potatochips and frenchfries! But I always carry food with me. Being sugar free and gluten free is not really a choice, if I do otherwise I become sick, really sick. I took me 4 years to get used to live like this. But before the diet I didn't have a life. So in the end missing out on sugar is not a great loss, other things will replace it. Search for a good cookbook, put the prefab stuff out of your mind. Succes!!!
