I felt desperate. I was sick for a couple of weeks when I put the pieces together and went to a doctor, and my diet was only liquids, not to mention I was rail thin. How was I supposed to reach a healthy weight again, if I am not supposed to eat anything with wheat? My diet was basically cookies, bread and juice, back then.

So I sat down and started to list foods I liked and could eat. Then I went on trying new ones when I got better, and my food list has expanded greatly ever since. Processed foods around where I live hardly are gluten free, so I had to look before leap.

And that's about it. Thinking about what you can eat safely for the time being until well enough to try out other things seems to be the reasonable thing to do.

Thanks and i have been trying new foods. I have also found new ones to replace what i cant eat anymore. I cant really get anything at restaurants anymore :P. Sandwiches on gluten free bread is about the only thing i have been eating now though and that is getting old quick lol. What would you recommend?

I completely feel you. This weekend, I had to be rushed to the ER cause I had an anaphylactic reaction to wheat and milk. Now I can't eat wheat (gluten) or milk (cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt, rtc). It's hard but I HAVE to stick to it. The next time i accidentally consume it, I could die.

I've been scared to eat now too, after all had happened. But like the other user said, you just need to sit down and write what you CAN eat. I'm making cheese less Mexican pizza tonight (refried beans, salsa , corn) with a dairy free wheat free crust I found at whole foods. You can manage. Here are some ideas for you:

Chicken/fish/meat and veggie

Rice and meat

Tacos

Corn tortillas with stuff inside

What did you eat before you found out you had celiac??? You can pretty much eat the same things. Now you just have to substitue pasta and bread for Gluten free pasta and bread

Thanks for your reply and im sorry that happened to you. I have never had any really bad reactions, i just felt sick and really tired all the time. But i cant have wheat or dairy either now. I have found substitutes for most things like they have dairy free cheese which would go great with your pizza lol and i have been drinking rice milk instead.

    • MariaofColumbia,   I came across this thread when a two different friends had posted on facebook.  I read it and felt like you were talking to me.  I've had issues for 7 years now.  My candida cannot get under control.  I went and checked my vitamin B levels and they are high.  I've been on methyl folate for several months now, but only one pill a day.  I do have one MTHFR gene mutation.  I've tried SO MANY candida diets/options and the minute I stray it is back out of whack...or it never really gets rid of it.  I pick up viruses fairly frequently because my immune system is so taxed.  I'm so very tired of dealing with this!!!  I'm wondering if you could go into more detail as to what exactly you started taking/how often/what foods you still avoided (sugar/vinegar/mushrooms/peanut butter/etc), and where your healthy B levels are at now?  You can find me on facebook as Jessica Hecker Andersen and we could always private message as well.  I really wish I could just call you!  lol.  Please, any further information would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!
    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
    • Good to know I would like to get more nuts and seeds  but find many retailers by me have the shared equipment claim on package so I've held off other than some almonds. My daughter and I are battling over all the fresh pumpkin seeds I've been roasting so I should see if nuts .com sells some a 5 lb bag would fix the ordeal likely a need for magnesium -
