  1. I have the same questions about the meal plan, since I am going to be moving to a new college in Chicago very soon. I will probably be doing a combination of cooking and the cafeteria. I really want to eat with everyone else, but I think I will need to do some of my own cooking in order to stay gluten-free without being cross contaminated. You can definitely survive on that much money, and cook yourself gourmet foods in the process. If you want convenience, order from Amazon and have the foods shipped to your door. I like Rice and Shine for breakfast with coconut oil, and I love the sprouted beans they sell in large packages. You can also get lentils, rice flours, and tons of other groceries from Amazon. All of those foods can be found online without having to go to the store at all.
  2. I started going gluten free a year ago, but I still have pain. I am better than I used to be, but definitely not without digestive problems. I get glutened still from cross contamination from my roommates, and accidentally eating something little (like gum) that has trace amounts of gluten in. But I am learning how to eat, and I'll be out of this cc environment in 2.5 weeks. How long did it take for you to heal up?
  3. I have serious gas issues. As soon as I get rid of it, it builds up again! I make jokes of it since I am in college and have nice roommates. However, the flatulence is stinky, loud, and painful. The bloating is bad and it is relieved when the gas comes out. Coffee enemas help a lot, but I'm really tired of doing those. I've been gluten free for a year and also have cut out dairy, soy, eggs, and corn. I have to eat really naturally and am very strict. I really try to limit anything questionable, and eat almost nothing refined. I get glutened every few days from my roommates using flour, or accidentally when I eat food at someone's house (Thanksgiving ham gravy = gluten). It gets better in a few days and then I get glutened again. I know from a colonoscopy from before that I had little or no microvilli in my intestines. They were flat and probably covered in mucous. What can I do? When will the gas and pain go away? What do the rest of you do to get rid of gas? When will healing finally come?
