I'd say this sounds like a very bad idea. I have no scientific proof, but common sense tells me the more gluten you ingest, the more damage you do.

I think of it like rat poison. If I accidentally ate a little of it and it tasted good, would I be happy to just go ahead and eat some more.

The immune reaction is a chemical reaction. An immune molecule hooks onto a gluten molecule which allows it to start the process that does damage to the intestines. So, dependent upon the speed of the process in each individual, the damage is going to likely be dosage dependent. Eating more throughout the day just because you slipped during breakfast is not a good idea if you want to avoid intestinal damage.

Sorry for being rude,

That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.

Your symptoms will last longer for how much gluten you intake, don't eat more, you will get sick for longer, also, cheating will make you want to eat more and more gluten because you will be craving it more and more because you have been eating it more and more, so don't cheat, if you by ACCIDENT get gluten, just wait for those symptoms to end not make them worse. DON'T CHEAT

flagbabyds...ROFL! Let's not say that people with celiac disease don't have strong opinions! :lol:

The thing is, if you're new to this whole thing, this sounds like a reasonable question. It's that "diet" word that throws people. Eddie, for me and my kids, this is how it worked. When first going gluten-free (and I mean within the first week) it didn't seem to make a difference whatever the amount of it accidentally eaten (it was a touchy first few weeks with my kids.) I'd even say that for the first few weeks, it didn't much matter. Now, however, that we've pretty much removed gluten from out diets (with the occasional accident) and have healed in some very visible ways, a little bit in my daughter, for instance, will have her throwing up in half an hour, but otherwise nothing else obvious (little = a bread crumb.) A lot of gluten, however, will have her throwing up, having intestinal cramps and major flu symptoms for 3-5 days (a lot = a bite of a cookie.) It really is a poison to us, even though that sounds so dramatic.

Good luck in working this out! I swear, it does get easier!

:rolleyes: that's the one thing we need to all remember--WE ARE NOT ON A DIET--we are eating or not eating the foods that will make us healthy :) and keep us healthy :D it's not a diet, it's a lifestyle--when people are not understanding my explaination, i tell them its like being diabetic, only they can have a little sugar and we cannot have any wheat, rye, barley, or oats---as this person is standing in front of me eating their Krispy Kreme donut, i say--like that donut, even if it jumps out and says "eat me, eat me" i know i cant have it and that prevents that lifetime on the hips syndrome :P--eddie--this is a lifestyle that you cannot cheat with--for your health you must be very conscious of everything you put in your mouth or touch--you must be careful--yesterday, i had a man hand me a sandwich to be scanned and he had heated it in the oven and i could smell the bread on my hand--i immediately went and washed my hands--we must be VERY CONSCIOUS ;) i know my life is so much better now that i am gluten-free :D deb

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
