  7. Gluten Free And Constipated

    Hi, Yup, flax seed ground in a coffee grinder added to your favorite breakfast cerceal it worked for me. I am self diagnosed gluten-free, i know that doesn't sit well with most, but it worked for me. I am still having tired issus, bowel problems, mood swings, low energy, but l know that if i just hang in there things should get better. Just a side note, i have been on a lot of different diets over the years, taken a lot of supplements, exercised a lot, until one day, l just had know energy, no air, all i wanted to do was sit down and die. Soooo.... this is my last resort, going gluten-free, getting away from the low energy, the bowel problems, and on and on it goes........ Just hang in there that's what l'am told, l hope you are feeling better Lewiss
  8. Hi I know i'am new, but dairy dosen't seem to bother me, are there others who, are gluten free, but can still use dairy. I have been gluten free for about 2weeks. I've never had problems with dairy, l like cheese of all kinds, and so far l have had no advers reactions. So please comment, and tell me if you've had similar good results with dairy. Sljh

  11. No Energy

    Hi, I was wondering why my energy and disposition was all over the place, about three days ago i consumned some garlic suasage, i should have read the label, it had wheat flour in it. Any ways lesson learnt read labels, not what's in your product. Further comments and observation, i have been eating wheat products all my life, i use to read labels just to see what the carbs content was etc, so wheat never entered into the picture. I live with my family whom comsumne wheat products, so i will have to be on the vigilance for cross contaimination. sljh

    Hi Janet: You are right fruit and veggies, meat etc, cost the same its the specal foods like bars, and bread, pretzels, etc. I tried some of these, and l like some, but when working on a budget, the wife say spend only so much that's what its come to. Save up and buy what is on sale and go from there. working on 10 days of being on gluten-free foods, mostly bad days, not one good one yet, l hope it soon improves. Patience not one of my best virtues, so far l like this forum. Lots of info, ideas and places to visit.

    Thanks GFinDC i will look up some of the threads, and thanks for the welcome, some good old fashion chit chat and ideas about what to eat when you're family isn't on the band wagon seems to me to be pretty good medicine.

    I'am just new to your forum, l just started about 8 days ago on gluten-free diet. Since then it has been rough. Some backgroung, l have not been diagnosed, but l have noticed in the past when i use wheat products, l felt terrible, to the point of losing half of my sight in my left eye, to having almost no energy. The adustment period is not been pleasant, headaches, stomach upset, constipation, not energy, i just feel lousy most of the time. Also l take vitamins a good omega and multi, vitamin d and vitamin c, and krill oil. My diet now consists of chicken, steak, pork chops, vegetable, fish, lots of fruit, flax pumpkin seeds, walnuts, organic whey powder, pink himalayan salt, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar. Bread made with gluten-free produces, I also have been doing resreach on the ingredence in the bread, and the one thing that l found out is that Xanthan gum may contain propleayen glycol, not very healthy, but its nice to have a bread product, without the wheat, and gluten. I know there is help from somebody, on how to stay on gluten-free and learn all the in's and outs of this diet, since no one else in my family is doing gluten-free diet. I also let my wife know that i felt better on this diet, but l got the rolling of the eyes, and the cost of everything is very high. Please help!! Thanks Lewiss
