Feeling Great But Can't Eat!

6 posts in this topic

Since I was diagnosed in October, I've been doing really well on this diet. In the beginning, I was still feeling terrible and thought I was doing something wrong but then I did more research and saw that you won't feel better overnight so I held out hope. I started getting better at reading labels and knowing what to look for and realized that I wasn't eating some of the right stuff. So October and November were still very iffy for me. That darn nausea just wouldn't leave me alone! But finally and happily during the last couple of weeks of December, I felt so much better. No sharp stomach pains and no extreme nausea. It has been glorious to not feel like dying everyday again. I'm finally healing and it's amazing. I got thrown a curveball though the week before Christmas. I had almost a full week of no nausea and then got a stomach bug so that was no fun at all haha. Once that went away, I went back to feeling just fine. I still do! I'm so happy at the way I feel. And since being on this diet and not being able to eat all the fast food and junk i used to eat, I've lost 13 pounds. I can finally live my life again without pain all the time. It's amazing. But one thing has been happening lately ever since I started feeling better and not feeling sick anymore. I get full so quick. Way too quick. I eat a couple of bites of something and get so full that I feel like I ate a five course meal. Like yesterday, I ate a small bowlfull of Tostitos (my fave go-to snack lately) in the afternoon. It was the first thing I ate yesterday. It filled me up for the rest of the night. We had cheesburgers for dinner and mac n cheese (mine obvioulsy with gluten free pasta) and I couldn't even eat it. I was still so full hours later from the chips that I took two bites of the macaroni and ate only half of one of the cheeseburgers when we each could have three and was ready to burst i felt so full. Is this normal when you start feeling better? Is it normal at all? I know I heard that usually when you go on this diet you actually start to feel really hungry but it seems I'm in the other direction. I feel like I'm barely eating everyday because any little thing I eat fills me up for the rest of the day. And after all that, I woke up today still feeling full from yesterday. I'm forcing some food into me right now because I have to eat obviously but I don't really want it. Just wondering if anyone has any insight to this. Thanks!! And happy new year!

My celiac symptoms included bloating, although I would still cram food in there and feel hungry despite my bloated stomach :-p

You may feel better being lactose free. Bloating is a sign of lactose intolerance which you've probably heard a million times by now, is standard problem for celiacs.

Those are very calorie dense foods... Do you feel the same if you have a bit of salad or some carrots?

I'm not bloated, I just have that feeling as if I ate a lot when I only ate a small amount of chips. It's the full feeling on the inside without the bloat. It's just weird that a small amount of chips could fill me up so quick and last so long. It's like that with anything I eat lately. The first thing I eat that day no matter what it is, it intantly fills me up for the rest of the day. Like I said, those Tostitos filled me up so much I couldn't even eat the cheeseburger or the mac n cheese. I had to force small bites down. It's been going on for the last couple of weeks maybe.

I find that I get full much much faster than before I was gluten-free. I usually only eat off salad plates because I get enough from that... I'm going with it since I ate too much before. ;)

Have you tried taking digestive enzymes? It might be able to help you break down the food more...

    • So here's my adderall report.... I take it in the am, after my other melds and coffee. It's the XR version so it lasts all day for me, but the most helpful part is the first 4 hours. It takes a little while to kick in, and then I notice a calming effect. I'm usually very anxious so this is nice. I notice I'm more positive, and feel actually pretty happy, although I've got some major things pressing down on me I feel like I can think about them straight and get them taken care of, instead of panicking. I'm not starving all the time like I usually am. I felt hungry since I started taking my thyroid med and am worried I started gaining a bit of weight due to eating more. Now I don't feel like I need to eat between meals. I'm back to making every bite count towards nutrition. I've been better at taking care of more adult type duties. I'm happy to say that it's been a very good experience so far and I don't feel like I'm taking so much that I get a high from it. A decade or more ago I took double the dose I'm at now and I can tell you I was feeling that super happy high when it first kicked in, and although it felt great, it scared me as that is so on the path to some major addiction issues, you know? I can tell you that the current dose makes me feel like I did in my 20's, and I was pretty kick a$$ then, lol!
    • Thanks, I'll look into these. This is what I'd seen re: lanolin in d3.  http://www.livestrong.com/article/414363-difference-between-vitamin-d-from-fish-oil-lanolin/
    • Found this article about a 11 year old with celiac who was forced to eat outside after being told he could not bring and eat his own "Safe" food into Shields Tavern. Biggest point was the social impact it had on the kid and the way it was handled. I think this will bring up a new perspective and in the end perhaps open more restaurants to understanding that some of us have to bring own food to a gathering for our own safety and that ousting us for it is actual discrimination with legal implications. I personally bring my own food when I eat out, I tip big for it if they are understanding and normally order a 1 ingredient side to simplify it with the least chance of contamination. This is something many of us do to meet a compromise and interact in a social environment, and feel normal. While it really depends on person to person and how sensitive/comfortable you are eating out, heading out to accompany and eat with family, friends, and coworkers should be a option, even if we have to bring our own food as a compromise. http://wydaily.com/2017/07/20/family-of-disabled-11-year-old-sues-colonial-williamsburg-for-discrimination-nws/ On a side note remember not every chain and store are the same, always talk to a manager, or call ahead before bringing in your own food, or eating out with special requirements, dietary restrictions, or extreme food allergies/intolerance.
    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
