Hunger Pangs

Recommended Posts

Everybody have experience the differences in their hunger pangs since they got on the new diet after get off the gluten foods?

I am still newbie at gluten free diet. I has been learning so much and starting realizing that there are certain limitations on kind of gluten free processed foods.

I hasnt ate too much of gluten free processed foods Beside that, I am still eating gluten foods in attempt to prepare for tests that I want to be tested for gluten intolerance or celiac.

so, i am in between both of gluten and gluten free foods for time being. plus, when i feel really sick and I has to stop eat gluten for few days in order to be functionable to do things i needs to do.

I noticed the diffrence in hunger pangs since I started eat gluten free for few days that has slow down and feel full longer. I started feel less needed to snack often.

When I start eat gluten foods again, My hunger pangs starting go crazy and feel so hungry all the time. its seem like I am straving and want to eat more after plate ful of foods. I start eat more snacks often.

I even tried to drink lot of water in between and just before meals etc. it do help bit but not so much as If i keep my hand and mind very busy and more likely less that I stop feel needed to thinking about the food.

I have to admit that I am quite overweight at 240 and I am 27. My weight have been up and down lot in past five years. I was 190 in 2006. it climbed up to 220 and stayed until this year. It went up to 240. I feel so ashmased of myself often. I just try to think positive to lose weight.

I am pretty sure this have do something with my disgestive system is not able to work well if I have gluten in my system. it seem slow down and dont really work at all. its like sitting duck until I suddenly have lot of gas and D.

it seem do something with body is not able to absorbing vitamins and minerals correctly that can leading to cause me to be more hungry so body can try to absorb again if my digestive system failed to absorb food in first place?

So, I am just wondering...

Yes. When I'm eating a gluten full diet I wake up starving, feel starving within a few hours of a meal and well, just feel the need to eat all day long. When I'm gluten-free I am content w/ 3 meals a day.

I think what you're describing is pretty common? Have you made an appointment to get tested yet? It seems like you are reacting to gluten pretty strongly?

Some Celiacs are overweight when diagnosed. Your body isn't absorbing vitamins, so your brain tells you it wants food...and you eat. Can you at least take a good multi-vitamin?

I know you said you wanted to be tested so your family will take your gluten free diet seriously...but if there's some reason there will be a long delay until you can be tested, it might be good to just go gluten-free?

True bubba's mom,

I m scared of get tested since it would turn out negative. I feel much better if i dont eat breads and cake at all. As kid i dont even like breads and cake at all. I alwaxs prefer other foods over sandwiches, pizzas etc. Its like i follows my instinicts without even think about it. I just realized my habits by just read this website and thinking about my habits when i was growing up etc.

In addition, Would get testing be worth my cent to have a paper that say i do have gluten intolerance so other people will take me more seriously?

Well, it may be worth trying to figure out if you are NCGI or Celiac because there are currently different maintenance checklists for your healthcare. Right now, the advice is for vitamin/mineral testing, bone scans, diabetes testing, thyroid testing for Celiacs. I don't read the same advice for NCGI but wouldn't be surprised if it happens soon since the research is evolving. In addition, it may help others in your family if you are dx'ed Celiac.

Do you need it to follow the diet? No. Would knowing if you are Celiac help in the future? Perhaps.

Thank you Pricklypear,

sorry for delay in comment. I am already starting eat gluten free mostly thru out day but do guzzle down few slices of breads per day. I do notice the symptoms start pop up like couple of hours after. Plus, the headaches show up. I decided to make myself a ant in log which si celery and peanut butter with grape. I felt bit better after that.

my sister kept tell me i need go get tested first before her. she have severe IBS and wont go in for celiac test. I try to encourage her because her symptoms are further severe than mine. she is not willful.

However, in order for be positive for bloodwork. I will try to eat lot of gluten stuff for a while until i make appt with strange primary doctor. i dont know if i should make appt at chicago's celiac center or jsut with my local primary doctor? mmm...

Before I started the gluten free diet I craved sweets all the time and I have diabetes type 2...

I don't crave the candy and cookies anymore, but I have a weak spot for IrisHeart's flourless chocolate cake...

Iv been ceilac for 7 years and i remeber when i was first diagnosed my hunger felt different or funny, me and everyone else thought i was crazy :P. its good to see im not the only one. I remeber i had just come off the flu and all of a sudden my stomach was feeling different before all the cramps started.

But yes if you're ingesting gluten it will cause a significantly less amout of your food to be digested, so your body will get hungry more often to make up for all the nutrience your missing out on.

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
