If you can stand in the middle of a candy store and not be tempted to taste even one piece for fear of spending a week trying to detox....you might be a Celiac.

Love it! Laughed out loud at the "if I take a sip of your soda will I catch your "bread thing".....

I'd like to add that you may be Celiac if you watch what people eat and think "you're NUTS!".

It is like watching some one intentionally eat poison :ph34r:

If you stand in line at the grocery store and look at what other people have in their shopping cart and shake you head in dismay ...........you may be celiac

This is taken from The Irish Coeliac Messageboard and is a true story, believe it or not!

Quote:

I was in College a while back, and was standing in line at the dreaded food counter, waiting to hear that inevitable question that all Coeliacs must endure "what would you like."

Ahead of me was a fellow student, and he turned to question me, "So, what are you in the mood for today.."

I replied "I wasn't sure" not wanted to blab out right away that I had unusual eating patterns!

He persisted though. "The pasta looks good!"

At this stage, I just thought I'd get it over with and said with as much gusto as I could "I'M A COELIAC".

He hesitated for a moment and replied

" Really, I'm a Saggitarian myself"!!!!

I laughed till tears came to my eyes...

There's a stomach bug going around and you are actually jealous of the people with diarrhea. (true story lol)

If you have spent $200 on food just to throw $150 of it away cos it went bad.

You've told a family member they can have some of your food just to find crumbs in it the next day :/

You've told someone that you can't eat gluten and tell them how it makes you feel and they say "I think I have that too!"

You tell family members this maybe why they have some of the problems they have just for them to say "I'm not giving up my food"

If someone has offered you unsafe food and before you can respond a friend or family member shouts out "They can't eat that!!" lol

You've gotten excited and bought something you think is safe just to get home and find you forgot to check for other things it has that you are allergic too.

You're brain hits the delete button after you tell it to remember something lol

Your colon looks at laxatives like they're Flintstones vitamins.

If you have more supplements than the drugstore. lol

If people seem have a harder time with you not being able to eat anything than you do.

You're brain hits the delete button after you tell it to remember something (Just kidding!!) :lol:

    • Just for your information - Celiac disease is not a "gluten allergy".  
    • Hello! Not sure if this has been posted before, as I did not see it. But as you all know a lot of us have problems with getting enough nutrients and even those like me that don't, its also just as important.  *Tangent* I think as a society, not just America but in the UK as I noticed while living there and I am sure other territories as well, we seem to ignore one of the biggest vitamins of all - WATER. 55-65% of our body is made up of this crazy vitamin. Not only does it help in our most crucial bodily functions, but it also aids in the building of our cells. Specifically those with celiacs, it is vital in the aiding of fixing the problems we have with not getting enough nutrients. After removing gluten from our diets, our bodies need to work SO hard to get itself back to as normal composition as possible. Water helps build our cells back up, carries nutrients, brings oxygen to our brains, and so so much more. I just want everyone to keep this in mind whilst continuing their journey through this confusing disease.  Please please, I urge you to drink your 64 oz of water a day!
    • Atkins is bad for your body, ketosis for the most part is fine (depends on your body). People who intake too much fat while trying to go through ketosis are at risk for stones. I think your route is the best though to be honest. Sweet potatoes and some antioxidant enriched fruits are a good source of carbohydrates while having a low-carb diet. 
    • Hi all.  I'm new to this forum and so happy to be able to ask questions.  I'm a makeup hound and realize I will need to start replacing.  I'm acquiring Arbonne products and really like what I'm using.  I have tons of lipstick and, obviously, need to make some changes quickly.  DLoes anyone know which of the higher end department store brands are safe.  I've been an avid Lancome, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clinique person, but I am fearful to use anything but my Bite lipstick now.  Would appreciate your wisdom.    
    • Growing up my Dad was a competitive bodybuilder.  He would go into ketosis before competitions.  He knew because he used pee strips.  I thought ketosis was hard on a person, as in bad for your body. Personal update:  I have been grain free for a few days now and have almost completely avoided brain fog.  I still eat sweet potatoes so I am getting enough carbs and sleeping well.  I weigh the same and I am happy! Friday is my colonoscopy and endoscopy to see how I am doing now at the 1 year mark.  I also have eosinaphalic esophagitis, hiatal hernia and GERD.
