And so far we are on the fourth page and going strong.

Here's what the OED has to say:

LIFESTYLE

"lifestyle (a) a person's basic character as established early in childhood which governs his or her reactions and behaviour; (B) an individual's or group's way of life; a way or style of living; " :)

DIET

1 Food; esp. one's habitual food. Freq. with specifying word.

M. W. Montagu Herbs or roots…and plain dry bread. That is their lenten diet.

†2 A manner of life; a way of living or thinking

So, I guess you takes your pick :rolleyes:

So wanting to slap people is a lifestyle?

:lol: :lol: well, for Addy it seems to be ......at this moment in her "life style" .

The problem with rigid definitions is "application"

..."Gluten free" was NOT established early in my childhood (I did not even know what that was)

so it could not have had a significant impact on my basic character or my behavior

or maybe I would have had a different LIfe ? and er ....um" llifestyle"

This ":lifestyle" I have had to adopt was thrust upon me .....ergo, this definition does not fit me.

The term "diet" seems more apropos, at least in my case, perhaps. I guess I am "old school" .

And this is where I am came in....

Well... at least I refrain from actual slapping! And yes, imaginary slapping is a lifestyle.

I could think of a few, but none I can repeat here. (I haven't had positive interactions.)

Fantastic, Takala! :lol:

Okay everyone.....Try and recall ROBIN LEACH's voiceover....remember that?? Hear him say this:

TONIGHT 's episode ON "LIfestyles of the celiac housewives who dream they can swap their hubs out for cabana boys and nibble on the fingers of KAREN"....we examine the ways we negotiate this "lifestyle" while driving a bus, hopping a train and washing down the contaminated shelves of the grocery aisles while trying not to slap silly the idiots who only THINK they know what a Gluten Free "diet" really means.

Gluten Free Lifestyle Sounds Like We Are Doing A Reality Show In the Whole Feuds Aisle !

Cabana boys... ladyfingers... mmm...

And then people ask me what I like in this forum.

BUT! I have put my Barnardo's thinking hat, and pulled out my Latin dictionary and my philological training:

DIET (via Old French) < Latin diæta (in medieval Latin di&#275;ta), < Greek δ&#943;αιτα ‘mode of life’

The old dead folks are laughing their pants off at all of us debating whether gluten-free is a δ&#943;αιτα or a δ&#943;αιτα. :lol:

However, they also knocked on my door, asking if we still had some cabana boys available. :ph34r:

How about gluten free life? As long as this heavily implies cabana boys I could live with that.

Nice crab by the way.

I find a sharp jab tempts me more than a slap. Imaginary of course :)

What the...? Are you serious? People do it to lose weight? If anything, it has the opposite effect; at least it did so on me, and even if that didn't help with my having to drop +25 lbs, at least it made me feel less of an invalid, and I don't have to plan my routes around ladies rooms anymore. I think that idea only applies to people who eat tons of junk, and since a lot of junk is not gluten-free, and gluten-free junk costs an eye and a kidney, the simply clean up their eating act. <_<

I would like not to be serious... But they basically just go clean and low carb. There was even one girl who said she scraped the cheese out of a pizza because there wasn't any gluten free food around in miles.

The cheese of a pizza.

She then added about being one of the gluten free perks of hers.

:rolleyes:

I think lifestyle applies because it goes beyond diet. At least for us. In our case it wasn't celiac but gluten and wheat intolerance. And if my daughter got those things on her skin, she got a rash. So we had to eliminate them totally from her life.

no, I was kidding the Capt. about asking this question and inspiring more pages of responses.

I was just joshing him. ;)

But I see that dieticians get "mixed reviews" from the troops.

From what I hear, I think our friends in Canada, the UK and NZ and Aus have better luck with helpful dieticians than those who are called "nutritionists" in the US.

But to answer the Capt.'s question:

A " gluten free lifetsyle-ician " is a bit clunky for a title. But I have seen "gluten free lifestyle coaches" advertise their services.

:mellow: hmm....don't most of us offer that for free right on here?

All of the above. Also: endless discussion on a distinction without a difference.

I am going to adapt a version of this thread next semester when I teach my classes on humane food policies.

:D:lol: You all have spent too much time in the malls or with 24-7 Christmas carrols... you're cracking! :P

Maybe we should just take back the title of "Picky Eater" and be done with it... If you tell someone you're a picky eater there isn't much they can say to that except, "oh." ;)

I just came back from a kids Xmas party where we could only eat corn chips... this thread fixed my mood right up. :D Thanks.

    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
    • Ha, Ha!!!!!!  If I wouldn't get in trouble for practicing without a license, I would!     I get it because that is what they did to me for years.  I never had acid reflux but had enough other symptoms that all screamed Celiac but no.........they told me that my severe stomach pain might be acid reflux so take this script and go away. They never even tried to figure it out past the 10 minutes allowed for the appointment. I'll never forget one doctor that I pushed back on and told her I was not there for meds but to find out what was actually wrong and she got so mad she left the room and never came back. All they kept doing was trying to shove pills down my throat.   I am guessing that the procedure is the one where they tighten the sphincter muscle at the entrance to your stomach? I know so many people who had that done because it's become so common to push that if the meds aren't working well. Follow the money........ If acid reflux becomes that bad, then you have to start looking at food, period.
