I'm thinking of going on a low-carb diet, where can I find low-carb gluten-free foods? I'm not sure if this type of diet is possible for someone with celiac because most of the low-carb foods are not gluten free. Any ideas? Or, are there any good online stores for this? Thanks

I found this, I eat the smaps cereal, it's pretty good, really expensive, but oh well. I think there may be some other gluten-free stuff on the site...

The best lowcarb diet is one that is not intended to be low carb. <_< What do I mean? Don't go low carb, just eat whole foods. :)

If you eat a diet rich in fruits and especially green veggies, (green LEAFY vegies all the better) you WILL loose weight.

Drink a glass of 1% milk when you feel hungry outside of mealtime or get a craving (not skim, 1% is better, it helps in reducing the bad fat). drink a glass of water, sometimes it's not that we are hungry we are just dehydrated and our bodies are telling us to eat something to counteract it. Drink a glass of white or green tea, it has natural appetite supressants in it.

Try to eat at least 4 small meals a day instead of 3 big ones.

Eat 1 organic yogurt (Stoneyfield is good) every day, it has the beneficial bacteria, acodophilus, in it, which aids in your immune system and digestion. Eat lots of protien, eggs are great.

Of course these food sugestions are supposing that you are not allergic.

Try to stay away from starches. Grain, potatoes, bannanas, corn, peas, and carrots. Your body uses them as sugars.

Eat things like almonds or pecans for snacks. I even eat chocolate covered soy nuts from Trader Joes.

So what do I mean by whole foods? As you can see... stay away from the processed junk. Eat foods that are in as natural a state as possible. Eat an apple, not apple cookies.

I promise you WILL LOSE WEIGHT and you WILL feel better. :D

Good Luck

Wendy

That Heavenly Low Carb site has Barbara's Bakery items under the "Wheat Free/ Gluten Free" section, BUT they contain oat flour and barley flour. They may be wheat free, but not gluten free! BE CAREFUL!!! Yikes!! Misleading information there. I hate that!! :blink:

I'm confused when you say that most low carb foods are not gluten free... Meats, nuts, oils, non-starchy vegetables, leafy greens... all these are staples of a low-carb diet and naturally gluten free.

Could you be more specific about the conflict you're seeing?

The best way to go low carb is to not eat processed foods. Meat, veggies, fruit, nuts, cheese, yogurt are what I mostly eat. Buckwheat, and quinoa are great because they are high protien and fiber and low in carbs. I prefer to eat foods the way they are supposed to be eaten, whole and unprocessed. Low carb diets are based upon eating unprocessed foods. The low-carb processed stuff is way too expensive anyway and not always gluten-free.

I'm not going to pan low carb diets because without them I would not have figured out that I"m gluten intolerant. But the best part of a low carb diet is the focus on whole foods (as written already). For me, eating regular dairy products, not low fat or skim, was a big help - first of all have less sugar and more fat in them so they keep you fuller, plus are more like they were intended to be eaten in nature.

I have seen some lower carb treats - Pamela's cookies now has some low carb ones (they use Splenda though... blech!) and also I noticed EnerG has a "lighter" loaf of tapioca bread now, too. But if you're really into going low carb, you really don't need to be eating that stuff anyway. Meats, veggies, nuts, dairy, eggs - all really good stuff. Yeah, so you need something sweet - then get some stevia or xylitol. Making brownies with almond flour and xylitol/stevia is super easy and very tasty.

Oh, I did see also that Stonyfield has a yogurt smoothy with half the calories, I think it said 15g carbs (still too high for a low carb diet but it's progress) and it doesn't contain any splenda or aspartame - which is totally unusual! But great! As a former low carber and still somewhat hypoglycemic, things like that make my day. I'm going to go check them out next time I'm at the store...

If it wasn't for the Atkins diet I never would have found out what was wrong with me. By eating more protien and natural fats from both plant and animal sources you will not get hungry as often. Protiens and fats take longer to digest and don't produce insulin spikes like a high carb diet will cause. I lost 80lbs and don't eat nearly as much as I used to. Low carb diets work great if you are gluten intolerant. If you do try the Atkins diet you must read the book and follow it exactly. It won't work if you don't.

I'm on the SCD diet and feel SO much better after getting all the processed carbs out of my diet. PLUS I am losing weight! Something I have been unable to do while eating carb-full foods. :) I love having a bowl of strawberries, grapes, apples, etc. for lunch. I also find I am not nearly as hungry. For a "snack" at work I keep small bottles of 100% juice to drink. Cuts the cravings and is good for me! Good luck doing whatever you decide is best for you!!

    • 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,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
    • I was just thinking the same thing!
