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 highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.
    • Hi.  I'm new to this!  Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
    • Hello. I apologize for this being long but I feel I should explain the situation so you better understand where I'm coming from. I am here because I do not have the time or money to be galavanting around to different doctors offices. I spent time doing that already, lost money out of my pay from not working but never found A SINGLE ANSWER.  I am a 23 year old female and back when I was about 13-14 I was diagnosed with Mononucleosis. Prior to this, I had been having other issues, or at least the minor problems I had previously considered as 'growing pains' since that's what my primary at the time attributed my pains to. Well now i'm 23 and it's only gone downhill since then. Back then I was told by a GI doctor who had done two or three EDG's and two colonoscopies that I have "the enzymes for crohn's and need to be careful." No other explanation other than eat 'gluten free'..... Now, this was kind of when it was the new 'health fad' for people, so being so young my logic was 'I'm young, I should be able to do what I want and eat what I want without worry!" so that's what i continued to do, despite feeling overall unwell. (I had really always felt unwell so it wasn't really that big of a deal for me)  Now that i'm older, i've literally experience an entire swath of issues. The only reason I am here is because I am now thinking back to that conversation with the GI Doctor that maybe she was right. While I do have insurance, I honestly don't really have the money to be shelling out for these tests all over again as I was lucky the first time around when my grandparents had taken me since I was underage.  My symptoms over the years and continuing have been: (in full, some may have nothing to do with the another)
      Lower back problems, feeling like sciatica but never confirmed. X-rays, MRIs, etc show nothing despite the intense pain. Drs now refuse to do more tests for 'nothing'. So I am left to handle feeling like an elephant is sitting on my lower back, right above my tailbone. (I did fall on that around 12 or 13 but doc never called back after testing, assumed i was fine...)
      Stomach cramping/spasm feelings
      On and off nausesa, any time of day.
      Inability to sleep. 
      Constant changes from hot to cold. (Original doctor has said over the years my temperature seems to run higher than normal. I almost always feel feverish even if only slightly.)
      Headaches/migraines
      Fatigue
      Lightheadedness at times
      Restless legs (DRIVES. ME. INSANE. The muscle relaxers i've been given just made it 1000000x worse! I was so sleepy but couldn't fall asleep due to the restlessness.)
      On and off diarrhea / constipation (I don't know what a 'normal' bowel movement is)
      Costochondritis that has come and gone since I was in 4th grade. (I remember the day because it was April Fools day and everybody thought I was faking the serious pain I was in. I could barely breathe, it felt like my tendons/muscles were being torn apart on the inside) .  I believe this is what my original DR thought was 'growing pains', except they never stopped even after I was finished growing..
      I used to get sick very easily - for about two years it seemed to clear up then i started getting infections non-stop.
      There are some .... embarrassing things... Such as despite how many times I clean myself I feel like i'm.... leaking.......... 
      Sharp/ache like pains everywhere in my body.
      There are likely many other things that I'm just so used to I'm not listing because I'm not sure if they're even related.



      I am just so tired of feeling like dog crap. I've never felt 100%, ever. For as long as I can remember i've always had issues but I come from a family that kind of just.... deals with their problems and not complain 24/7. After years of that, I need help. I am absolutely fed up not being able to do things because I just feel generally crappy. It's seriously depressing and making my depression and anxiety worse. Is testing for a second time worth it? If it is, what tests should I really be focusing on to figure out if this is my problem?
    • Thanks for the responses raven and cyclinglady!  I guess we just have to wait.  Is it wrong that I want there to be no question that its celiac?  She has had so many symptoms for awhile now--seemingly increasing--but I want there to be no question in her mind that she needs to be gluten-free--you know? For now we are working on eating gluten-free but I haven't really tackled the whole cross-contamination thing yet and looking into my freezer, fridge and pantry I have a decent amount of gluten that the rest of us will eat.  Then I guess I'll decide how gluten-free the rest of us should be. On a side note--the gi ran a bunch of tests prior to the biopsy--I haven't seen the results--but they mentioned over the phone that her white blood cells were high--maybe due to celiac?
