I so agree with you. Recently in our local paper they had all about the gluten free diet but a very small blurb about Celiac, it irritates the heck out of me, all those who follow the diet for the "new trend in diets" dont have the health concerns that we have, no worries of CC and can still walk into Pizza Hut anytime they want, just had to rant about that. :unsure:

Did it not say anything about Celiac or gluten intolerance? I think someone needs to enlighten that magazine. If the person that wrote the article had just one of the symptoms it can cause, she would have a different opinion.

It was a little box inside an article called "BIG LIES ABOUT FOOD ALLERGIES". Ugh.

The magazines are full of it. If the fad diet brings us more safe products that are dedicated gluten-free, AWESOME. Otherwise, I'm sure the fad will pass and we'll be left with our trusted stand-by products.

Don't forget that people love a headline, and the headlines are what sell magazines. It's all BS. Let it roll off your back like a bad dream.

Good point. My husband said the same thing. And he added "Hey! Maybe you'll finally be able to get some gluten-free beer around here!" LOL

I read this also. The article mentions celiac in the last paragraph. It talks about wheat allergy and why some people "think" they need to be gluten-free. Then it was like..BTW some people have Celiac. At least that is what I took from the article. :(

'Zactly. "What's behind the wheat-free trend?" Well, probably the fact that it makes so many of us puke and gives us cancer and vitamin D deficiency and additional autoimmune stuff and basically makes our life hell.

I mean if they really wanna know. ;)

I wish there were some sort of rule banning people who do not suffer from the effects of gluten being able to write these articles. I just feel like until you've been here it's impossible to imagine. I can't read them. They are there to sell magazines. Probably a 25 year old copywriter with a lame story idea up against a deadline. (Well, idea was handled in a lame manner)

Just wanted to add that my mom dropped by this article last weekend. She found it in a magazine at the hair salon. It *really* irks me. There was a whole "myths about allergies" in there too that trivialized food intolerances just because they weren't anaphalactic or something.

It particularly irks me that my mom gave me the annoying article too! Yay for mainstream media. Not!

Come on now. Do you really think big Wheat is going down without a fight? Nope. They are going to make us out to be insane so the truth that gluten is at the root cause of the three leading causes of death in this country doesn't get out.

They are going to keep printing this vacuous nonsense to create just enough doubt so that people happily go on eating their poison.

That is why it is up to every one of us to help people with what we know. I've personally changed 7 lives in the last few months just by spreading the word and being an example of how awesome getting off this crap is.

Seven people who were slowly suffering and dying and aren't anymore. Seven kinds of awesome. B)

A co-worker gave me the same article.

I think some people are doing the fad gluten free diet because they see people like me who drop weight after going gluten free and then they think it's an easy way to lose weight. A different co-worker is doing just that. She tells me what she ate every once in awhile, she's not really gluten free but she thinks it's good enough for the diet. :( It makes me cringe.

Fad diets sell magazines, facts don't. (at least not for the most part) I used to be annoyed by articles and news clips on migraines. Once I saw a special report on migraines and the only "sufferer" they interviewed complained of one a year! Before going gluten free I was enduring as many as 18 days a month with migraine. Come to think of it I still am annoyed.

I think the fad diet is also chasing the low-carb trends like Atkins and South Beach. But just like every other fad diet, it's STUPID. Fad dieting is not a good way to be healthy, end of story. Eating good foods and eating reasonable portion sizes and staying active is how you stay healthy. People just don't like to be told that they have to be reasonable.

After all that I have suffered....I felt like I was basically dying a slow death and going crazy because of my gut, I hate trivialization, too! I pretty much gave up my career because of it and am fortunate that I could transition to being an at home mom. I still don't feel like I could hold a full time job and I made excuses for years to skip/avoid social functions, volunteering, etc.

So true guys. My weight gain this pregnancy is almost non existent, I have gained 4 pounds but I am pretty sure it's all in my boobs LOL. But some of the other pregos were like "Oh! How do you do it?!" Well, I can't eat junk, plain and simple. I make whole foods and my morning sickness is better because of it. On of the other women was like "Well you shouldn't be dieting". I'm not, I just got rid of stuff that made me so sick. I have a disease. THere's a difference.

Misconceptions are so uncool.

    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice. 
    • Hi   I'm in the UK so brand recommendations probably no help to you, although we have Uncle Ben's over here which is fine to my knowledge. I have to say I approach rice on the assumption that it should be safe unless I hear otherwise, that may not be the best approach if as you say you're particularly sensitive and want to cover all the bases. The exception to this is the precooked rice you can find over here in pouches designed for the microwave. That can be a problem.  If you have a brand you normally use or that's readily available you could try googling it to see if anyone has reported issues and of course contacting them directly to check with them. This forum is also worth searching in that way as over the years there's been many accounts from users of their experiences with different brands and products so you could try searching a brand name with them.
