Going To The Cinema

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure which forum to put this post in since it's not about recipes or about restaurants. Sorry if this is the wrong place.

My husband has been wanting to go to the cinema since Friday, and I've been putting it off, basically because I had no idea what snack to take with me while I'm on the elimination diet. To me part of going to see a film is having munchies. I basically eat veggies (no corn, and carrots or peppers since they make my throat sore) and meat.

I was thinking.. would it be a bad idea to have a coca cola zero? :-(

Anyone else have a bad experience from cola or any type of diet soda?

Any ideas on interesting snacks I can take? :-)

:) yay movies! My newest favorite gluten-free munchy: Bangkock Sweet Chile Rice Chips by Snapdragon. Our kids love Pirates Booty (but I think it has corn, so double check the ingredients list). For a more healthy choice I love jicama slices. Jicama can be sweet and crunchy and has lots of water in it! Jicama, like carrot, is a root, so I'm not sure your throat will like it.

Instead of cola/soda could you find a more "natural" soda like a ginger ale?

Have fun at the movies!

I haven't had any issues from Coke or any other colas, although to my knowledge so far I don't have any additional food allergies or interferences. I do love Izze sodas though, they're pretty much carbonated water and juice with no additional sweetener.

If you can't do corn, soda is a bad idea due to high fructose corn syrup and regular corn syrup.

Neither of those should be an issue since she mentioned getting Coke Zero. I haven't looked up the ingredients but I am assuming that zero calories = zero corn syrup. There also isn't any corn syrup in the Izze soda, it doesn't have any sweeteners.

No I don't think diet sodas contain corn syrup.. I can't do any sugar or corn.

I also live in sweden, we don't have Izze soda but perhaps there is something close to it :-) Thanks!

Whenever I do have a soda, depending where you are you can find Sierra Mist Natural or Pepsi throwback cola. They are made with real sugar. I also like Crunchmaster 7th Ancient grain lightly salted cracker. It has no corn, no nuts or soy! I'm not sure if you're eating any graines, but this has been the best for me.

Nope no grains.

ah, I missed the "zero" part up there. I myself don't do fake sugars because I cannot stand the taste (splenda and saccharin are the worst, but aspertame sucks too). I wouldn't think such a chemical concoction would be good for an elimination diet, but hey if you don't get symptoms, good on you.

you didn't mention if you're off ALL sugar, such as the sugar in, say, strawberries, or just cane sugar/added sugar. I often substitute blueberries when I get a skittles craving. a handful of nuts or berries or something like that could do for a substitute for movie theatre candy anyway.

I'm off all sugar. Really good suggestion on the berries though, thanks :-) I was thinking of adding rice next but I think it's better to start with fruit... Which makes me wonder, when I add berries, means I can have all berries? or all fruits?

I know the OP isn't drinking soda, but I want to point out that the ingredients in Coke, Pepsi etc. in the US are completely different from the ingredients in Coke, Pepsi, etc. in Sweden. Coke in your country isn't the same as Coke in someone else's country. Just important to keep in mind when giving people advice about specific products. :)

    • More and more, people are adopting a gluten-free diet due to perceived health and weight-loss benefits. A team of researchers recently set out to ask people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity about their views on the health effects of gluten, and safety of vaccines and gluten-free food products.

    • Welcome!   Get that follow-up testing.  At least help  confirm that you are compliant with the diet and that celiac disease is not the root cause of your brain fog and anxiety.  Once ruled out, your doctors can focus on other possible AI issues that are beyond your control (unlike celiac disease).  For now, you can focus on a good healthy diet.  Consider a modified AIP diet.  I just read a study involving this diet and IBD (autoimmune) done by Scripps in San Diego.  There was a 77% remissions rate.  Amazing!  This can (in theory)  be applied to other autoimmune issues.  It helps to validate that diet can heal.   http://journals.lww.com/ibdjournal/Pages/ArticleViewer.aspx?year=2017&issue=11000&article=00021&type=Fulltext here are some follow-up guidelines: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ Hang in there.  Consider Ennis’ tips too, but I prefer and do well without supplements.  My doctor has checked me for deficiencies and so should yours.  You need to really  figure out what is best for you (food, supplements, etc.) 
    • I have seen info that children's antibodies can drop very quickly.  The lucky little guys!
    • I think if you search through this section of the forum, you will find that many children see a quick drop in their antibodies.  Recovery can come fast or slow  in both kids and adults.  We are all different!   I can tell you that my antibodies are still high, yet I had a repeat biopsy done last week showing healthy villi (Marsh Stage IIIB at diagnosis five years ago).  So, here I was beating myself up for having elevated antibodies which made it look as if I was not diet compliant, and I was actually healed.  Researchers  have not done a lot of studies about repeating the antibodies tests after diagnosis to monitor progress (lack of funding for sure).  Repeat antibodies testing is not perfect, but it is the only tool in the box right now.   We suspect my antibodies (DGP IgA only positive on the panel ever)  are up for other reasons (e.g. my Hashimoto’s, another AI issue, residuals from a previous gluten exposure).   I do have symptoms but these were attributed to other  things including chronic gastritis which, since I do not have active celiac disease, h. Pylori, drink alcohol, and am allergic to NSAIDs and other meds, is probable autoimmune.   Great job on keeping him safe!  I am glad he is feeling better.  He is seeing results from the diet which helps confirm the diagnosis.    Systemic issues can take longer to heal, so just keep moving forward.  
    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
