Just a tiny TMI alert...

Today has been a weird day. Apparently, I was glutened by my tapioca (maybe it was the strainer I used, my sister cooked the not so gluten free rice pasta and used it) so yesterday I felt discomfort and unusual bloating. Today, a minor part of my stools was loose, had a foul smell and there were bits of food (ew :blink:). And I feel so hungry!

Since I was glutened, I decided to keep the diet very light. To breakfast, I had a tall glass of acerola juice, a scrambled egg and a banana. Two hours later, I felt cramping, and I started going nuts thinking what the hell did I eat to cause me cramping, then turns out it was hunger. Made a light tomato soup, ate a cup of it with passion fruit juice. Two hours later, cramping. It was hunger. Half of a cup of the soup, an apple. Two hours later, the same damn thing. Ate another banana, a glass of guava juice. And again. Another scrambled egg, another apple. Now it won't make even a couple of hours I ate this last meal and I'm hungry again, with cramping and all. Will make a glass of caj

If that's all I ate, I'd be starving, too. I'd go for that nice juicy gluten-free hamburger!!! laugh.gif

Maybe I missed it in a previous post, but is there a reason you need or want to stay at or under 1,000 calories a day?

I'd say phooie on the 1k calorie thing and go for it (if you don't have a medical reason to do so).

You could also eat more often with less meals. Thats what i generally do.

I actually end on 1000 cals by chance. I eat normally and use a calorie counter app on my phone as a food log, and I put the exact quantities and everything. It always end up 1000 or less, and usually I have only three or four major meals... Today was an exception because I thought my tummy would be upset. It is not, gladly :P

I am definitely concerned because I have swimming and dance classes, and I am underweight already (92 pounds at 5'3) but I just didn't find the right foods yet. Right now, I tried to cut the salad of my plate at lunch to eat more meat, rice and beans but then I reached 1000. Before, I'd stay at 800 or 900 at best.

Maybe meat is the solution...

I definitely think you need more protein and good fats. Your body is telling you something...you're starving!!!

Exactly! Also, can you eat tree nuts? They're loaded in protien.

I used to eat cashews, then I reacted to them as well (it wasn't CC, I tend to react to things when I eat them a lot and too frequently, learned the lesson <_< ) so I'm thinking of introducing some brazilian nuts and almonds now.

Will try to make a recipe of honey and lemon cupcakes without baking powder and with whole foods only to see if I get along well with them.

I have to agree that you are definitely not eating enough. Honestly though, after I've had a glutening incident I find that for several days I have very severe stomach cramps. They are quite similar to the pain I'll get after not eating for days, and I've found only one thing helps. Constant snacking. The only relief I get is to keep something, anything, in my stomach. From sunup to sundown I will keep something I can munch on within arms reach and start stuffing my face the minute I feel the pain again. I don't personally have a lot of protein options so I like to do things like hard boiled eggs and fresh veggies with some dip. Or I'll even do cheese if you can do dairy. I probably only eat 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of something at a time but it's enough to keep my stomach from gnawing on my spine.

That's what I'm doing basically... I snack every couple of hours or so right now. Hmm... Carrots :lol:

And you're eating a lot of low energy-density foods. The don't have many calories for their size and ability to fill you up. Which is great for some people, but not so great if you're needing the calories (and sustained energy) to keep your blood sugar up.

Fruit juice is very high in natural sugar. It has as much sugar as soda. It might make you spike and then crash needing nourishment. I agree also that high protein and good fats would be helpful. Without coconut, olive oil, or butter, I am hungry again shortly thereafter.

If you react to things after eating them a lot or too frequently it might be because you are salicylate sensitive. Salicylates build up in your system. Pistachios are a good example. I can eat ten or twelve at a sitting, and only once a week. Any more than that and I have a reaction. Most nuts are high in sals. Walnuts are generally safe though. How do you do with berries? They are all very high in sals. Do you have trouble with them? Check out salicylatesensitivity.com for more info.

Yeah, all that juice is cranking your blood sugar all over the place. I don't even drink any kind of juice anymore, I just eat the fruit. With cheese. You really need more calorie dense foods, soup and apples and juice just aren't going to cut it.

Avocados, nuts, olive oil, potatoes, sweet potatoes, all winter squashes, MEAT. These things will help keep you full.

So yes, to answer your question, shut up and eat a hamburger.

But my juice is just the blended fruit with water... :huh:

Bartfull, I don't think I'm salicylate sensitive. My father told me the other day I have a leaky gut since a child and it does cause random intolerances... Though I will sure pay attention to sals now, to see if it might have something to do with it.

And yes, everything noted down. Olive oil, nuts, meat. And eat more :P

Using the whole fruit is a very good thing, but having just straight liquid fruit is still going to jerk your blood sugar all over the place. When not combined with fiber, fat, and protein, it's pretty much the equivalent of having a soda every time, when it comes to your blood sugar levels. Yes, there's lots of good nutrients in there, but they'd be outweighed by the damage you're doing with the blood sugar spikes and the resulting insulin flush. Insulin is pretty rough on the human body. So a smoothie with whole yogurt (if you can have dairy) and protein powder and some flax seed along with that fruit will do you much better. If dairy's a no-no you might try coconut milk. Very tasty in smoothies!

I will try that, for sure! Yeah, dairy does no good to me, but I already used coconut milk in recipes and felt just fine.

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
