  2. Shane I kinda did put in extra effort to gain.Lots of potatoes,rice,etc.But we are all different in healing.My theory anyways.All I know my gain just stopped,like a light switch when I got to that certain weight.Hope this helps you Chuck

  4. I found out the NEWER Doctors seem much more well aware of celiac than the oldtimers. My new doc ran celiac test First after she saw my previous testing done by my old doc Chuck

    Recovering Celiacs With Demanding Lives

    Hello Ladycyclist I constantly had brain fog,unable to focus,in my case,I rapidly got better (hence a 50 pd. weight gain in 6 months) Everyone is different. Be patient your good health will come back. Unless there is something else. If I remember your the person from York,Pa.?And your in nursing school, wow,the eating part must be very difficult ! But, I have to make my own meals (barely have time) and the cycling keeps my mental-state sharp,along with physical You keep at it,keep gluten-free,and try to find time to CYCLE! Chuck

    Is Fresh Produce Glutened? Help!

    AllI know Ann,is some of us are VERY sensitive others are not. You are a confirmed celiac,I presume? And if that is the case,do as I did,everything you eat and put on your body, including letters,vitamins,prescription pills,bath olis,hair shampoo,dog food,EVERYTHING,and one by one check them out.In the meantime eat the pure basics,potatoes,rice,fresh veggoes,meat chicken fish. It worked for me. Good luck Chuck
  14. Our lifestyle is hard indeed,but we eat btter than most!A classic celiac will actually gain wight,post diagnosis,dur to the fact that you are now absorbing nutrients. I dont trust eating out,even if its a gluten-free menu,remember,those COOKS are usually 16-18 yr. olds that want a paycheck,not making sure you havnt been cross-containenated! Chuck
