  1. I hope you don't mind but I read your very helpful review before my Princess cruise and thought I would tack on with my post cruise tips for other celiacs. We were on the Coral Princess. Here are my experiences. I gained 10+ lbs. I ate alot of really delicious curries, Indian food, Thai...
  2. I stop eating at 5 p.m. and take Acid Sooth right before bedtime, around 11 p.m. https://www.amazon.com/Enzymedica-Occasional-Heartburn-Indigestion-Capsules/dp/B00L2LP7YU?hvadid=241930076102&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9028797&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t2&hvqmt=e&hvrand=51312582999883243...
  3. Thanks Mateo, After being a bit stunned by the property tax we're probably not going to retire in Texas. However we are planning a long vacation down there, maybe early next year, to visit relatives so will still get to check out Austin and SAs gluten free options. The Omni La Mansion...
  4. I find they do work. I currently use Enzymedica Digest Spectrum (it does gluten and a bunch of other things). I used to use Enzymedica Gluten Ease but as I got older I like the broader spectrum digestive enzymes better. I find if I do get cross contamination taking 2 will eliminate the symptoms...
  5. Thanks TexasJen, We have relatives in Texas so were talking to them about Austin today. They encouraged us to also check out San Antonio. What do you think of the gluten free offerings there (if you are familiar with them)? Probably we will try to make it out there early next year.
  6. If you want safe gluten free pancakes in Fort Collins try the Original Pancake House. My favorite are the Georgian Pecan because of the orange tropical syrup. I also like the pumpkin pancakes. http://www.ophfortcollins.com/ Unfortunately I have gotten glutened at Snooze twice so had to...
  7. Thanks! We went over the suggestions last night and are going to look further into Austin and Tucson. Any particular side of town or area that has more of the gluten free restaurants? More suggestions are welcome.
  8. Thanks for the input. I appreciate the responses. Karen, I agree that Fort Collins to Longmont is pretty good. We really like Loveland but I just don't know if I should stay here with my altitude issues. Cyclinglady, in terms of Prescott I wasn't looking for 100% gluten free, just a restaurant...
  9. My husband and I are searching for retirement areas. We currently live in CO and feel it is pretty good for gluten free. Unfortunately as I age I am becoming less tolerant of the altitude. So we have made a few visits to places to look for a retirement location. I have been using findmeglutenfree...
  10. This is from a post back in 2013. The only think I do now is Enzymedica Digest Spectrum and Acid Soothe after dinner so as not to get GERD problems at night. But here are the supplements that fixed it all. Here is a link to the the original thread: After about 5 yrs eating gluten free...
  11. Op, I'm going to go against the grain in this thread and suggest you stop eating gluten now, today. You are in horrible shape. I mean like really wrecking your body. Your digestive system is so messed up it doesn't know what to do with it self. That is why you don't react to individual foods or meals...
  12. Basically I do not know how to cook. I need to lose weight for my health. I have to eat gluten free due to celiac. I have tried 6 week body makeover years ago which was very successful but ultimately too difficult to stay on long term. I looked into weight watchers but know with my personality I...
  13. So many people are going gluten free as a fad diet that when I go to a new place I closely question how they guard against cross contamination. You know the drill, a clean pan?, a common toaster?, gluten free grill?, dedicated frier? etc. About half the places say they don't have safe practices or...
  14. I've traveled alot internationally. Try to not eat off the buffets. If you ask at the hotels they will generally bring you hard boiled eggs from the kitchen. A fruit you peel yourself like a banana or an orange makes a nice compliment. Apples can work too if you can wash them. If you see prepackaged...
  15. I'll take a look at them. It is so hit or miss with gluten free products. I've tried a few brands but don't remember which ones didn't make the cut. Thanks for the suggestion! Michelle
