I found this petition at gopetition.com that was started last April. It looks credible to me, but so far has only 122 signatures. It ptitions Chipotle Grill to eliminate soy products, including soybean oil, from all of its food products. Please sign it so Chipotle might become be more like its slogan- "food with integrity". And pass this along to anyone who might be interested in signing it. :)

What would they use instead?

IMHO, soy is so not good for anyone, and so many of us gluten freers do not tolerate it either, it seems such an unnecessary allergen to add to food. Sure, it may be cheap, genetic modification has seen to that, but really, why would you want to eat GMO food?? It is one of the top eight allergens and there are so many better (even affordable) choices. (Steps off soapbox)

I agree! It wasn't until I took soy out of my diet that I had a painfree day.

Done. I'll sign any day a petition against soy products. Soy is everywhere and it is not only GMO but it messes up hormones for men and women. I never have soy but I eat popcorn as one of my safe snacks and hope this other frankenstein food isn't messing up my health.

"The undersigned believe that Chipotle Mexican Grill is a wonderful example to fast-food restaurants of the ability to maintain integrity and offer healthy foods; and that Chipotle Mexican Grill will continue this example by removing soybean oil from their food, and replacing it with a healthy oil that is not genetically-modified, such as extra-virgin coconut or olive oils."

That's what it says in the petition.

Not all soy is GMO....you have to do your homework. It also does NOT mess up hormones in all men and women. Those who are sensitive or intolerant of soy definitely should avoid it but there are many people, myself included, who can tolerate good soy products without issue. I am post menopausal..there are no hormones left to mess up! :P

As far as Chipotle Grill, never eat there and never would so I don't care about the soybean oil. If you are that concerned about it, just don't eat there. They are not going to change their oil for more expensive ones because then you would all be complaining that the prices are too high. Plus, olive oil and coconut oil would not give the same results and may change the taste of their menu items and they don't like to do that.

Gemini, I never eat there either but I sign the petition anyway because I hate soy products :lol:

From what I have read, soy has been promoted as a health food and pushed by vegetarians but it is far worst than corn and even wheat (for those with no intelerance). Even the organic soy isn't good...watch out maybe there is something else it can mess up for you.

I was just having a discussion about GMO soy and corn with a friend of mine who has a PhD in agriculture. She said that about 70-80% of soy used in America is GMO, so in fast food the likelihood is very high that it's GMO because it's cheaper. I would guess that most fast food uses soybean oil because it's so cheap.

Naturally, a fast food joint would use cheap soybean oil....that goes without saying. All fast food is derived from cheap food

products and that's why you can get a whole meal there for next to nothing, money-wise. But I eat protein bars that have non-GMO soy in them. There are companies that source their soy products they use to be non-GMO. I also am not convinced that soy is the evil food many think it is. I eat soy, not much, but it is in protein bars and a few other things I eat and soy does not adversely affect me at all. If people choose not to eat it, that's fine, but I do not buy into all the fear concerning food that's prevalent today. If something makes you feel unwell, then don't eat it but that may not be the case for many people.

I can guarantee you that, soy is NOT worse for me than wheat. Without exaggeration, wheat nearly killed me but soy has never caused me any grief. Ditto for corn....you can source non-GMO corn. I know you are trying to be helpful and I appreciate your concern but I am doing pretty good these days and am not having any issues with all the autoimmune problems I have. It's the gluten and dairy that I have to stay away from.

I am post-menopausal so any hormone fluctuations/issues from soy aren't a problem....I have no hormones left anyway! It could only help. ;)

    • Take the opportunity to get healthy!    Nuts, seeds, fruits, take these as snacks on your drive. I personally love almonds and pumpkin seeds. Or bananas and blueberries. Or if you need protein there's lots of gluten free protein bars at gas stations. I like to pack hard boiled eggs too.  One thing I do for long trips is I make sort of a granola/protein bar at home and take it with me.    1 cup oats 3 eggs two spoonfuls of peanut butter some cinnamon and a banana.   mash it all together and bake it like a cake for about 20 minutes. Chop em up into little bars and bag em for your trip. just get creative and try new things! 
    • I totally understand.    Ive noticed the same thing when I started really ramping up my fitness program.    To start, cut out the 30 day challenges. If your serious about fitness, you will incorporate it as a normal entity of life. We already have compromised immune systems so putting sudden outbursts (or challenges) of stress on it will only make you more susceptible to pathogens and ultimately, get you sick.    Take a week, only stretch, light cardio, very light strength training, and lots of rest. Next week, add a little more. Show your body that you can handle it, but do it push it by any means. This new training regime is forever, it's your lifestyle. Take it easy, and play it smart. Slowly add more intense training over time... slowly. Get to a point where you feel your nutrition and fitness needs are being satisfied, and you're productively making differences.   i personally work out 3-4 days a week. But if I go too hard, I get sick. Then I get frustrated that I can't exercise, I work out anyway, and get even more sick. It's just not smart. So I stopped that. I have respect for my immune system and its limits. I took it very slow, and increased my intensity over time. Now I'm at that golden point in my life where everything is balanced. Progress (in terms of personal aesthetics for myself and my interests) is slow, but it's progress. And it's a hell of a lot better than the go hard and get sick cycle.   Best of luck to you friend! I'm sure you will find your way! Learn your body. Know that you are strong, you are powerful, you just have to play it smart. 
    • Yes^, usually if you tell them about celiac, they know. Almost all nurses know what celiac is. If not, tell them what you can and can't consume. There is no such thing as gluten in IV. They always have fruits and juices at hospitals, you can ask for those. Staff in an ER, will always be very kind and helpful, as long as you are kind and respectful to them. I've noticed nurses are just about the best people in the world if you let them know how serious you are about something. As for medications, ask the physician or doctor what the medication is. See if it's diluted with anything. If either of you are unsure, look up the medication online before you take it. You can almost always find an answer. Besides, nowadays it's extremely rare to find gluten in prescribed medication because of how strict pharmaceutical companies have become on allergies and intolerances. 
    • A ketogenic diet is good if you are trying to lose weight, lower insulin levels, fight diabetes, lower blood sugar, etc. . But I'm 20 years old, 5'9 165lbs, that's not healthy for me. I am extremely active and need carbohydrates. In fact I definitely need more because I am lower than 12% body fat for sure. Also, if I remember, ketoacidocis is practically what the ketogenic diet induces, which isn't a normal body function. it's practically tricking your body to think it's starving, which for some, is a good thing. Not for all. It's like taking cold showers, they're good because they can boost and improve muscle recovery, but it does so by putting stress on your nervous system. Our bodies can handle being put into shock, they can bring out helpful chemicals in our bodies, yet they're not necessarily healthy. Yet, if you truly believe this is improving the way you live then who am I to tell you it's wrong.      And yes, I am still playing the game of trying to find the golden number of hours on sleep. I read about sleep cycles and I'm going to try to make it either 6 or 7.5 on the dot.    Nightsky, what carbs would I eat? Am I allowed any type of rice if I'm grain free? I eat lots of potatoes but sometimes I feel it's too much. I cook all the time and eat about 90% whole foods  with the exception of peanut butter and ground beef. 
    • I pretty much do all of that with the exception of parchment paper. I tried telling them about the loose flower and they look at me like I'm being some controlling a**hole. I'm too poor to afford extra paper towels and parchment paper. I can't seem to get them to understand how serious it is. I don't want to ruin everyone's day because of my disease. I can't use the ice machine because they put their hands in it, and when I tell them to be careful they forget. They've used my pans and silverware so I just end up giving them my pans and buying new ones. I am just going to accept that the next x-amount of years are just going to suck and there's nothing I can do. I just feel like I am being treated unfairly by the world. I  steal from grocery stores because I feel like they're robbing me with extremely expensive prices on food that I can eat. I have no shame whatsoever taking things when I can.  It sucks and there's just about nothing I can do. I am going to accept it, work hard in school and finally have my own gluten free household.  Im starting to get sick of free food being everywhere, and I can't have anything. My work always buys everyone lunch or dinner. And I can never eat anything because there's no safe local restaurants. I don't care about eating the food, I have no desire to eat gluten food at all, I just feel like everyone around me gets paid extra (in food because we're poor college students) and I'm left out, starving, eating canned tuna and canned beans. Can I at least get a raise since I can't eat the food?? And don't get me started on the socials. Last time, my work had Olive Garden, and everyone was running around with breadsticks trying to shake my hand. Probably washed my hands about a hundred times and still got sick that night.   PS I just kissed a girl the other night who definitely drank a beer so I'm dying from that as of now. (She lied about drinking beer). I know, I'm a mess.    So like I said you are all very kind and helpful, I will take your advice and do my best to minimize my ingestion of gluten (I feel like I'm starting to become neurotic because of it). And I will continue to accept the suck, with the dream of one day being completely isolated from everyone where I can live in gluten free peace. I'm just physically not meant to be a normal human being.
