  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. wow, its really interesting to read all of the things you guys say. All the things affected by gluten. Because I know I always considered myself lazy because all I ever wanted to do was sleep.... but also have insomnia. I still have insomnia and I'm still tired all the time but not quite as bad. i did notice that the last two days I've been really in the mood to get up and get out which is not usual for me. I still have insomnia though. anyway, i'm just really excited I figured out whats wrong. And I know it will be easy to stick to the diet at home... but now I'm afraid to go to a restaurant because I don't want to undo my progress.
  3. thanks! I better understand now So, I probably would have an intolerance and not celiac disease since I noticed improvement right away?
  4. I'm just wondering how it works... I have been gluten free for only a week, and really after 2 days a lot of my problems were gone. How is it possible for it to work so fast? I am self diagnosed, so I don't know if its celiac or just an intolerance. But if gluten damages the intestines, shouldn't it take longer before you have any symptom relief? I mean, shouldn't the stomach have to heal for a certain length of tme before symptoms improve? I just wonder how it works.
  5. Hello Paris people.. I also live in Paris. I have found Naturalia and Bio Generation to have some gluten free products. I just recently figured out that i have a gluten intolerance, so I am not very skilled at the diet yet.
  6. Thanks everyone! Yeah, the French eat more sandwiches I think than anyone on the planet, but they are on baguettes.. I did see some gluten free baguettes that I think you bring home and bake but I haven't tried them yet. I may do that this week.. its soooo expensive though! The sandwich bread you buy in the store, the ones that are called "American sandwich bread"... the slices are HUGE, like twice the size of our bread. Which makes it really weird to see it next to the tiny little ones in the gluten free section. I will def. try the Grainless Baker... is that in the regular supermarket, or is that in say Trader Joe's and Whole Foods? I'll also try toasting the bread and see what happens! I don't have a toaster here.. so I'll be good with the broiler setting. :-) And.. that is the most beautiful cat ever! anway, thanks guys!
  7. ok. I'm in France, but I just filled out their contact us form on their website.. I also posted a message about this on a vegetarian website asking people to do it too! I mentioned the sausage patties and asked for more products to be gluten free.
  8. I will contact morning star farms! I am currently living in France but when I go back I want to have veggie burgers and veggie sausage too! yikes!
  9. I'm in France right now. And, I have found lots of gluten free products in the stores... however, the breads are tiny. No way the slices are big enough to make a sandwich. I took some bread with my lunch one day and when i went to eat it, it was all crumbled into tiny pieces. Is this the case with all gluten free brands? I'll be moving back to the US in a few months, are there any breads you recommend for sandwiches.. (either in the US or in France)or, have a recipe for bread that you use on sandwiches. I really just want a sandwich and havent been able to find normal sized bread slices!
  10. Hello everyone. I'm new to this... both the board AND to gluten free. I've pretty much determined that I have either gluten intolerance or celiac. I'm not sure which but I've been gluten free for a week and ALL my physical symptoms are gone. I might even say that my emotional issues (such as anxiety) are improving. So.. basically, I don't want to eat gluten anymore. I haven't been to the doctor and honestly, I'm not sure I see the point in it. I have read that there is nothing they can do for it except tell you not to eat gluten. i can do that on my own ;-) Or, is there some reason to have a formal diagnosis that I should know of before I go too long gluten free.. Anyway. I'm glad there is a group, and I just wanted to say hello.
