High 5 for day 1. I have sent Mr Mindwarp to the shops to get more meat veg and eggs :). I am having encores for breakfast. That should make him wince, he is not a fan of sprouts or mornings...

I will be wincing myself ----as I am unable to eat eggs alone without nausea (can do them baked IN things)

and have no clue what's for breakie...except ..encores. Coffee with full fat coconut milk and no sugar was....er, um interesting.

:lol: and when 5:00 happy hour rolls around soon....I may be wincing then too..

I am doing this for the sole purpose of seeing if I can reduce inflammation. Losing weight is a side benefit

of course, but the reality is, I do not feel well most days and the pain index... just plain sucks.

WOOOO!!!! I'm waiting until I'm free to eat bacon to make some. I know I could just make it and refrain from eating it. I know that in theory I have the willpower to refrain, after all I've made it this far with all this other crap. But I'm also honest with myself, I'll tell myself to double up my topamax and dig in and probably still end up half blind. :lol:

Totally with you on this train of thought -- my will power has gained a lot of strength this year -- getting taken back out last spring clinched it for me -- I can now sit comfortably with all sorts of treats others are munching, crunching and praising without blinking an eye (well maybe I blink, but it is easier than it used to be) -- even the RBJ waited a month before I tasted -- finally gave in to "make sure" it really is as good as reported ;)

PS...I trained the teen chef in the family to make RBJ this morning -- I'm certain this family will not be without it for long -- hubby said something like they have been eating too much bacon as they were munching candied bacon on Christmas morning -- could have heard a pin drop on the carpet -- needless to say all are happy that Mom does the grocery shopping once again -- things are right in our world!

If I may kinda sorta jump on the bandwagon and commiserate --as of today I am embarking on the 8 Hour Diet. 8 hours of eating (sensibly but normally), 16 hours of fasting (no cal beverages ok).

I'm weak and can not give up dairy--had to for years and now that I have it back....I...just...can't :unsure:

Today has been ok so far. I figure I'll give it 6 weeks.

I did have a small handful of macadamias mid afternoon when I thought I might keel over, but that was because my daughter woke at 5 this morning. I had my decaf with creamed coconut. The milk I tried a few weeks ago was better. My tum feels happy, full but light if that makes any sense. I confess I spent some time looking at suitable mayo recipes earlier. There are some and it appears to be a acceptable :).

I spent a long time in denial about dairy. I am secretly hoping when I reintroduce it it will be ok. Fingers crossed (I'd happily do bribary if I thought it would work)

yes, losing dairy (and grains and legumes..... and booze ) is a tough one, but I've done it before and I can handle it for a month or so (she said with enthusiasm....)

I remember how when I lost those (plus some more), how freakin limited my diet was--but worth it in the end. Now, I just want to lose some weight.....I am on some meds that have cause a weight gain :angry: , and the clothes are getting tight :(and....I finally was honest with myself and my knee pain getting worse coincided with the weight gain, which was pretty sudden with the onset of the med. <_< So..... time to get my arse in gear B)

Good News on the Cabana Boyz front (& backs ;))

We need look no further than the volleyball courts of South Mission Beach - I spied many glorious candidates this morning - no pics - I know a few people down there - with my luck a photo of me taking pics of/oogling at our candidates would end up on FB!

Sounds like you are enjoying yourself on your cabana assignment. Maybe go incognito?! We need pictures for inspiration. I mean project. I mean, well, you know... ;)

I've been grain free for over a month now, and have been 99% sugar free for over a year.

Honestly, I freaking hate it, but I just force myself to not think about it, because my bowels

are the closest to normal they've EVER been, and my general level of inflammation was

just getting way too out of hand. I may give 'fringe' grains (buckwheat, quinoa) a shot next

summer. For now, I'll stick with it because it's working. Hopefully when my general stress

levels are able to recede a bit food will stop biting back!

The recipe for the sour dough crust PLEASE !!!!!! :D

Here we go. This is from Mireille on Delphi forums:

1 1/4 c. rice flour

2 c. tapioca flour

1 c. dry milk powder

3 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

1 tsp salt

2 t. dry yeast granules

1/2 c. warm water (or a little more depending how thick is the dough)

1 c. sourdough starter*

1 Tbs sugar

3 Tbs shortening

1/2 c. hot water

4 egg whites, at room temp.

In bowl of a mixer, - mix flours, dried milk, xanthan gum & salt.

In small bowl or cup: Add sugar to ½ cup warm water and dissolve. Add the yeast and stir. Let sit until bubbling.

In small bowl or cup: Melt the shortening in the hot water

Blend the dry ingredients, and with the mixer on low, add the hot water/shortening, then, the egg whites, and finally, the sourdough starter & yeast/water/sugar.

Mix at High for 4 minutes.

Oil 2 pizza pans (I use large cookie sheets with rims) and sprinkle with cornmeal.

Spoon the dough onto the pans. It is very sticky. Dip plastic gloves or saran wrap or your fingers in olive oil pat the dough until not more than 1/4" thick. Let rise a little. Time varies depending of temperature. Hard to get smooth. Mine was very bumpy and didn’t rise much. It will smooth a bit when it cooks.

Bake at 475F for a few minutes until it starts to brown. Freeze at this point if you want it for later. If you use it right away, add your topping and bake until cheese is bubbly and the outer of pizza dough is golden.

*Starter:

2 1/4 tsp dry yeast granules

1 cup lukewarm water with 1 tsp of instant potato flakes (mix well)

1 tsp sugar

1 c. white rice flour

Use a big jar, or the such.

Dissolve yeast into the potato water. Stir in the sugar and rice flour. Cover with a saran wrap and let the jar sit out until fermented (1-3 days), stirring every few hrs at first. The mixture will bubble up and ferment and then die down with a skim of liquid on the top. Be sure to stir well before using. The consistency should be about that of pancake batter.

Replenish after use by feeding the remaining starter with 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water and 3/4 cup rice flour, each time you use some. I didn’t try to replenish. Most gets used in the recipe.

You can do it!!!

I've been dairy, grain and legume free for 16 months!!! It gets easier....loads easier once you find safe ingredients :)

booze - now that I suggest trialing at least once per month

Or worse.

News at 11: Crazy ski-goggled woman caught taking semi nude pics of bronzed young men.

Claims it's for a "secret society of women who need them for their enclosed private compound to perform various duties such as shoveling, serving drinks, eating gourmet meals and just being hunky. Possible reanimation of dead handsome male celebs also involved in the bizarre cult plans..... Charges pending..."

seriously....anyone reading that sentence on its own?....would wonder exactly what the hell we are up to on this thread.....

and congrats on all these victories. :)

That news report was hysterical!! :lol: Almost choked on my dinner.

Italian sausage with sweet peppers, onion and garlic. Broccoli and a bit of rice.

I think I'm going to have some squash tonight with my burgers. I'll probably yank a pack of cookies out of the freezer too for a snack or something later.

I sort of feel like I should be all jumping on this whole new year, try some new diet thing but frankly I'm scared to try anything until I'm done testing all my tyramine foods to see what bothers me and what doesn't. I'm a good way through my list though and hoping that maybe by the time I head back to my neurologist in March that I'll be able to embark on something new since I'll have a lot more options open to me.

i'm sort of bummed at my roommate. He came home with salmon cakes and salmon loaf that were clearly identified as containing gluten. I'm feeling sanctimonious that I didn't Mace him or something. Gosh, I better go shopping tomorrow. Waa.

    • Hi! I was officially diagnosed a couple of months ago now but I have been gluten free for about 4 months since my endoscopy. However, in the last month I have noticed some worrying post diagnosis and treatment symptoms. My appetite has shrunk enormously. I used to be able to eat bowls and bowls of food and still be hungry, I could consume food even when full and I was constantly snacking. I understand over eating is a big part of celiac disease before going on a gluten free diet but food is such a huge part of my lifestyle. This last month I feel as though I have lost myself a bit as huge parts of my character like my love for food, huge appetite and my non fussy nature have all been turned upside down. I could easily not eat any snacks in a day now and not have to have all my meals. I thought I might have lost weight so I weighed myself on the same scales I did a couple of months ago. I am a young tall girl and was 10 stone for the last year at least. In the last few weeks I have lost half a stone which is 7 pounds and am now 9.5 stone. This is not intentional and I did not aim or want this to happen so I am concerned about any continued lack of appetite and weight loss in relation to my health. Therefore, I am going to weigh myself each week and make sure I am eating all three meals. If it continues I'll visit the doctor. Also, I am noticing fatigue still which was a huge part of my pre diagnosis symptoms. I get to a certain point in the afternoon where I feel like I need to go home and rest because I can no longer continue. I have no stamina and it is restricting my freedom, which I feel has already been taken from me as a result of this diagnosis that came at a frustrating point in my life which was a huge nuisance. Finally, I am also finding it a bit of a struggle to get my head around the whole thing still and to understand what it means for me and my life. I am very worried and scared that it will impact me not just physically but mentally and socially and it scares me. I guess this was more me getting all this off my chest and into the open, if anyone has any advice or feedback I will be hugely grateful.
    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
