Fage Greek Yogurt

7 posts in this topic

So I've been gluten-free for almost 3 weeks and decided to see if I could tolerate dairy again. I ate about 3oz. of the Fage Plain Greek Yogurt last night and felt fine. This morning I had cramps then some D, yuck! But I also made homemade gluten-free chicken chili last night. Was it the beans or yogurt that could have caused this? What should I avoid being a newbie to the gluten-free? HELP!!

Beans and dairy are both difficult foods to digest :huh:

You might want to stay off them for a few months... once your intestines have healed you'll be able to tell if you have a permanent intolerance. Hopefully you can eat them again :P

What are the best foods to eat for the first couple months? Its such trial and error I know! Thanks for the advice!

Really simple foods are the best. Rice (the easiest grain to digest), meat, lots of vegetables, fresh fruit, seeds, nut butters, eggs, etc... Your body will probably thank you if you go easy on the sugar, dairy, and processed foods for a while :)

If you haven't done much cooking before, now is the perfect time to learn!

Since you are so new to gluten-free you probably need to stay away from dairy for awhile. I eat Fage every single day but that is only after 2 YEARS with no dairy and working it slowly back in.

A food log with symptoms is essential. It will be your friend. I cannot digest rice no matter how "easy to digest' people say it is. (My mom being a big proponent of this idea! God love her!) I even had trouble with chicken at first- not sure why. I ate fish (lots o' salmon), beef, bananas, cooked veggies (squashes, zuccini, summer squash, swiss chard, spinach...), larabars (on occasion and only a couple of bites), grapes and cooked berries for a couple of years! Yikes! But, I am very sensitive; you may have more luck. Add one food at a time so you can assess its influence. I still am soy, high-fructose corn syrup, mostly corn and, of course, gluten- free. oh yeah, I don't eat eggs much but am tryi g to work them back in- whites alone first.

I now successfully eat a healthy diet of hard cheeses, fage, beef, chicken, fish, shellfish, nuts, butter, occasional coffee with milk, raw sugar, fruits (not a ton), rice cakes, Tinkyada pasta (rice bothers me, Tinkyada does not- maybe it's been processed enough so I can disgest it?), tomatoes and tomato sauce, Larabars, sweet potatoes and McCormick spices. I cook everything myself (or Michael does) and I eat out almost NEVER but have had two recent ventures out that were successful.

Hang in there; it will become second nature at some point but there is a monumental learning curve.

Oops, I forgot to say I eat lots of veggies, too, mostly cooked- they seem to sit better!

I think you have gotten great advice with the food journal. I pretty much know within an hour or so what is going to bother me, but it took me a lot of paying attention to get there. I kept food journals, too, for a while, until I could get a general reaction time, and narrowed down pretty much everything that bothered me.

I used to eat Fage everyday. Love that stuff! The last time I had it, it upset my tum, so I haven't tried it in a while.

I've been gluten-free a year. My doc and I don't think I'm lactose intolerant, but we're not totally sure. Keep a food journal for sure. It's probably best to cut dairy for now, but you may be one of those who can handle it.

When I first went gluten free, pretty much everything bothered me. When your intestines are all screwed up, nothing is happily digested. Hang in there, it gets easier!

    • Get the full celiac blood test.. It includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA It's just a blood test, no reason not to do it. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks for the test to not show a false negative. One slice of bread per day is enough. A positive on any one test is supposed to lead to an endoscopy to confirm celiac. Since you're already getting an endoscopy you're good to go there. There are several things you could have, digestion-wise, so I'd do the tests. Celiac requires 100% compliance to the diet, no cheating, so it's good to test for it.
    • Where are you? Nuts are gluten free by nature, some companies might use contaminated seasonings, or make them in a facility that processes trail mix or something with gluten in it. This is where your concern lies, A nut only company should be safe, unseasoned nuts are your best bet, and yest if you can get them in the shell then wash them off really well before shelling and eating them your pretty darn safe with them. Raw walnuts in shell are safe, they normally do not add anything them to them, in case they might have gotten dusted with something just rinse them off before shelling them, I really love taking the walnuts afterward and putting them in a pan on low heat til they start to brown and lightly roast, they are great this way. I also used to take raw walnuts and candy them. Might post that recipe since I can no longer eat them and do not sell them anymore. I have a bit of a issue getting nuts myself by I am allergic to peanuts (not really a nut but a legume). SO for me it is really tricky finding peanut and gluten free nuts lol. I found 3 companies I order from, 1 for organic almonds, 1 for my own almonds, and one that sales walnuts and pistachios only. Most people here just order from Nuts.com but they might not ship to you at a good price. Tried amazon?
    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
