3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can get more info about Dr. Fasano's diet?  I plan to start my 6 year old on it and can't any find details... I have so many questions!  Any blogs out there that anyone knows about with recipes/ideas?

Why no frozen fruit?  I get that frozen veggies are often processed with seasonings, but fruit?

Why is Gatorade allowed?!

Can I make my own rice flour to use?

Is the following allowed:  fresh garlic, peanuts, ground beef/turkey, cocoa, maple syrup, sugar, coconuts, cinnamon sticks... (that's my list so far)

Thanks for any help anyone has!!!

This has study contains a table with the list of foods:


I think the diet is trying to avoid all processed foods.  I have no idea why Gatoraid is on the list!  There must be a reason that some foods are not included.  You would think that garlic, fresh should be fine.   Same goes for unshelled peanuts.  Ground meats you would think too should be fine if not ground by a butcher who stuffs chicken breasts or chops.  The other items are processed.  Even frozen fruit has the possibility of being contaminated.  

DR. Fasano's Gluten Freedom book does advise that this diet be supervised by a celiac-savvy dietician and or doctor.

Feel free to try what ever diet works for you and modify it a bit to make it a tad more healthy. PS plain rice noodles from JUST rice are available from the lundberg rice company. I would personally just avoid all processed foods, Anything with added sugars, or questionable content. I personally found my perfect diet just this last month by eliminating all grains, fruits, and starchy veggies moving over to a high fat/protein diet free of most carbs.  We are all different in the way our body works and we each pretty much to tailor make a custom diet to each of our bodies that works best for us. Took me 3 years of tweaking so far and I still feel it needs a tad adjustment.  

I got to admit that list is a tad funny on some allowed and not allowed.....I for one will never eat real dairy again, mix thing really between a 10 year intolerance and a bit of a stepped back and logical point of view, and mixed research.   But that is another long winded story, and while on that note we do suggest dropping dairy for the first few months due to the way the body processes it in relationship to damaged intestines.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
