  1. I have been wondering recently if the opposite has happened to me...I seem to be unable to tollerate alchol now that im gluten (and lactose) free.. which i have put down to the fact my digestive system is now working and so pocessing all the alchol rather than before when it wasnt. I used to be able to drink (british teenager...we can *drink*),,,but this weekend I had half a bottle of red and was whacked! ( I can drink two usually without a problem),.. even had the bumpy head by the end of the second glass...*urgh!* although I have found that vodka is fine - i didnt know they made a non potato vodka, but im a vodka snob so only buy the good stuff.
  2. tbh i dont wear lippie that often (vasaline gloss and that i know is gluten-free!)..but yeah, the guidelines say that it cant be an issue anyway. I use dove though and the rest of my body prodicts are ok, save the makeup which im having real truble getting answers on! http://www.coeliac.co.uk/glutenfree_living/living/116.asp soya is soy (its soya in its tradition.. why do you guys drop the a?!) and i have been fine with it i thought, but its the only thing i can think of that i have eatten that it 'could' be.
  3. Amen to that! i was amazed when i started at HOW MUCH ruubish there is.. sweet and ckaes n buscuits and all sorts f gluten-free foods.. and so little 'good' n healthy replacements - and the ingrediants losts on those things terrified me!! Since going gluten-free and DF ive lost over a stone without even thinking (or trying!) and now im trying .. well.. lets hope heh! I think you have to try to eat naturally gluten-free stuffswhich are all naturally a lot healthier. however the fact you are working out a lot and still having an issue troubles me, so id got the docs first! unless you can honestly say you are eating too much and its all processed it could indicate a problem!
  4. The Celiac society state very clearly that you CANNOT be affected by the make up though - im so confused.
  5. black earl grey (wittards - there is only ONE type of tea!) i dont see how it could be that
  6. I have eaten nothing over the last two days but veggies and fruit.. I am in a gluten-free/DF bubble at the moe (so no cross contamination).. now it is only day two (of being omg strict, but I am very careful on the whole anyway) but this morning OH stomach ache! And this after noon I feel like ive been hit with the sleep hammer! Normally this is fine, I can go
  7. personally i have found that ive had to totally give up my coffee (which was a bind to start with!) i dont think it was to do with gluten itself, but just that my system (now ist all working) just couldnt handle the stuff... and then i was getting sysmptoms that were like being gluten'd... coffee is a natural laxative as well, so i just figured it was all to do with ...also it made me feel REALLY all anxious and nervous and skitty.... i cut it out and it went away... i can however have tea, so thats all fine.
  8. went out on sunday with a friend and the new blokey and we finally settled on Wagammas for food. Had a quick scan of the menu, and think OK its a Japanese (all be it westernised) Noodle style bar.. they have rice noodles and such so SHOULD be oK...right?... Oh so very very wrong! when i explained my problem (lastose intollerant celiac) i got given a sheet that lists the foods i 'can have with moderations' .. great i think... so i look.. i am not even entirly sure how they have managed to get lactose in some of the dishes the list said i couldnt have but im not going to risk it, i figure they know what their ingrediants are!... so i sat and cross referenced the lactose and gluten that left me with two things that i could eat.... BUT once you put the MSG in... NOTHING! they have got MSG in their miso! what cheap rubbish are they buying! I explained my problem to the waitess who was clearly out of depth once the trusted 'list' had failed her... and the manageress came over and asked what the problem was, i explained and she basically said if theres nothign you can eat you cant eat here... now given they make it all from scratch and its not exactly rocket scienec and all i wanted was stir fried veggies and a bit o meat (but not their chicken which has milk in it! (again withthe cheap meat!) and some rice noodles i wouldnt have thought it would be THAT hard to accomodate (ive had some loverley peeps at various places that happily sort something) but no.. apparently she couldnt do that.. she could modify stuff on the menu but not deviate so much.. and that that was the menuand if there was nothign i could eat then i couldnt eat there... so we left. Ended up at a loverly place called Bar Soya (next to the rag market) where they make their own rice noodles (best ever btw! noym) and who made me exactly what i wanted with the most amazing noymest crunchy veggies and things that havnt made me ill and i will be most definatly telling everyone in the world to go there!
  9. thanks for the replies guys! if i was at my home then i would have had things to throw in the microwave (as i seem incapable of making one person sized meals so always have enough for two!) ....but i was off to my new blokes (non gluten-free Lactose free friendly) house so its like EXTRA thought n care n stuffs.... even the silly things like the fact i know all my spices are ok at my house but i have had to rekit out anything i need at his (*rolls eyes*) Amys - london is a wee touch far to go for a ready meal but ill have a word with my local H&B and see if they cant get some sent there! its also more than just about the time n stuffs.. i MISS takeaways, i never had a lot of them n stuff...but yah know i miss that yummy MSG filled gloupy ness from the chinese (not the doubled in pain cramps n sickness and fogg after though!!!) it doesnt help that i seem to be reacting to EVERYTHING at the moe (even alchol now ((( !!!)
  10. thank you! your a star.... thats quite amusing...but very helpful *grins*
  11. ok, so i have a new bloke (yeahy!)...but of course hes not gluten-free and dairy free (booh...) .. although he is learning bless him (awww).... so the delictae question *cough*... involves overthinking im sure...but.. HOW far does the gluten-free have to go?... I mean.. i dnt wear makeup thats not gluten-free in case some gets in my mouth.. should i be considering the *cough* certain *cough* considerations with a non gluten-free bloke...
  12. i had trouble with Dove too, when i called them they said gluten was a sugar and only found in food...*raises eyebrows*...but i have seen othe rpeeps who have had responses confirming they are gluten-free (unless other wise indicated) Simple have repsonded to me very well and all but two of their products are gluten-free and dairy free (i have posted the repsonse in the products thread and on the blog)
