As well as having coeliac disease I have IBS, I managed the condition quite well until I had to stop eating gluten when diagnosed with Coeliacs. Now I am having stomach cramps etc due to not getting enough fibre in my diet. How do people manage to find sufficient fibre for the diet when most of it is found in wheat based foods?

The following are all good sources of fiber:

 

  • Beans, lentils and peas
  • Fresh and dried fruits – particularly if the skins are eaten
  • Vegetables – particularly if the skins are eaten
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Jacket potatoes with skins, including sweet potatoes
  • Psyllium husks which can be added to baking or cereals

 

There are also the standbys of Metamucil and such to increase fiber if you are finding it is a problem.  Also, you need to be sure to drink enough water to prevent constipation.

Thanks for replying.  I already eat beans, jacket potatoes, fresh fruit and nuts, it's difficult getting 30g of fibre a day though. I am having difficulty in finding a source of dried fruit which has not been contaminated with gluten or wheat.  I was about to buy some prunes in a health store yesterday when I was told they were produced on a line which also uses wheat, I have the same problem with lentils.  I'm also beginning to think I have a problem with flax seed as whenever I eat anything with it in, I feel like I've been punched in the stomach and get griping pains.

 

I notice there are a lot of products you cannot eat, how on earth do you cope?

I've added metamucil into my morning tea and afternoon water.  It's been just enough to get me up to where I need to be, and is really helping me out.

 I actually manage to eat pretty well - just not food that others prepare :ph34r: .  I am adding back little bits of my intolerances - nibbling around the edges, so to speak.  :D  Can now tolerate some potato starch in breads (like Udi's :) ), also corn starch because all the lectins have been refined out of it.  Can have soy lecithin which gave me back a lot of things.  Still haven't challenged nightshades or legumes, but have been able to tolerate them when consumed accidentally by using a product called Lectin Lock which provides the sugars for those pesky lectins to bind to (instead of to my cell walls) :o

It's not something I'm familiar with, but I will certainly check it out! Thanks!

You certainly seem very positive about it all. I don't let others prepare my food either. I like to know exactly where it's been! Some people just don't 'get' how careful we need to be, especially when it comes to cross-contamination. There are a few things I can't eat too, which have nothing to do with Coeliacs, but no where near as challenging as your diet.

    • I have problems with corn so I have to be aware of that when shopping for spices and gluten-free baking products as Raven pointed out. I use Badia which states certified gluten-free As for encouragement drink lots of water and rest. A nice soak in tub sometimes is soothing. I hope it passes soon. If you find out it is gluten-free after all ask about corn in product, on the line, or facility . May your symptoms be minimal and pass fast  best wishes edit: it was Karen not Raven who mentioned corn  starch my bad entirely 
    • Nov 18, 2015 >.< yeah it was older, Checked some newer testing others have done and found the more recent ones under 5ppm.....so perhaps they got their act together. I still am that old dog recalling being hit and growling at them about it.
    • Yes, I've seen these and believe that these were taken during the time period that GM had an issue with a contaminated truck, and this caused them to issue a recall on batches made at a plant. If I am correct about this, that was years ago, and they have corrected that issue. What is the link for this? What time period were these tests done?  I am fairly certain you are showing old data here, that is old news that was dealt with by GM...but please share if you know.

      Sorry to be the jumpy rabbit, but once bitten twice shy, I recall when they first came out with gluten-free cheerios....yeah it was worse back then and that pain and trickery will not be forgiven.
    • Oh, and how much do Granbia and GFHarvest cost, and how available are these cereals?
