  1. Eating beans and fibrous vegetables could also contribute to the problem. For me personally, too much meat even causes this. I agree, maybe you could just eat rice, fruit, juice, etc. until you're free of gas. Then add the Mac and cheese...

    Enough! I Just Need It All To Stop!

    Actually, the easiest way to "detox" the liver is to avoid animal proteins and fats. Gerson therapy, which is a well-known alternative cancer treatment, is entirely based on the cleansing of the liver. It advocates fresh juices and bans...

    Appetite Changes

    Same here, no tapioca for me. I'll try Betty Crocker. I actually made Pamela's brownies today, but wasn't too crazy about them...like Yoshi said, I think it's because I'm used to eating the whole pan!!! I've heard before that people...

    Soaps, Shampoo, Face Wash, Etc

    I use coconut oil for moisturizer (awesome! lasts forever! and doesn't clog pores!) and baking soda for my teeth and/or Tom's of maine. I am currently on the search for a good shampoo with as FEW ingredients as possible, and preferably...
  5. Hey Jeffiner (love the name), I was throwing up every day too, probably at my lowest point, right before I went gluten-free. But instead of losing weight while that happened, I actually gained a few pounds. I'm sure it was because, after...
  6. I got worse at first. But now I don't see it as "worse" than as "more sensitive"--to dairy, harsh grains, and most refined foods. It's funny how the moment you let go of the main baddy--gluten--your body suddenly goes "Ahem" and demands...
  7. Hi Elastigirl, I don't know whether it has to do with the chickens being grain-fed or not, but it could also have to do with the hormones or antibiotics in the chicken. Like a lot of us, your son could be very sensitive to certain foods...
  8. p.s. I recommend a sushi place for dinner, since they usually don't have a lot of wheat lying around (lower risk of c/c). But call ahead of time and talk to the chef, if possible! You can order sashimi (raw fish) if you want to be safe...
  9. I totally understand! Discussing flattened villi and abnormal bowel movements aren't very "romantic" first date conversations. However, consider this: it could possibly lead to a very interesting conversation! If she knows nothing...

    Weight Gain

    I lost weight on this diet, mainly because I had to give up dairy as well as gluten. (I used to overeat on both.) I also don't eat any of the gluten-free packaged foods because I'm still healing, which is probably helpful. And ever since...

    Appetite Changes

    Hey! That's really good news. I read somewhere--maybe? somewhere?--that when you first go gluten-free, your blood sugar drops due to lack of carbs. So then you'll crave lots of other carb sources (i.e. cookies! chocolate! sweets!), and...
  12. OMG... Sandsurfgirl, this story will haunt my nightmares forever! I'm so sorry about that. Pre-this diet, I'd have bad spells where I wouldn't go for over a week. I'd think, "Is this normal?" But I never pictured this scenario. How...
  13. As soon as I eat anything disagreeable, I bloat up (and get constipated). I feel your pain! Yes, an elimination diet is the way to go. It helped me tremendously. Your body IS reacting to something; keeping a food diary will help...

    Canceling Social Plans...

    Thanks Welda and jackay, I agree we ought to be proud! This was my first gluten-free holiday and I made it through. Yay, me...and us! People were eating gluten and dairy all around me. But like you, jackay, I was feeling good because...
  15. Your story sounds like mine: I developed colitis after working in a bakery for close to a year. I never ate the food, but the cross-contamination was enough to make me sick. I started feeling much better after a month of going gluten...
