  1. I had been diagnosed with celiac about 5 yrs ago after loosing alot of weight and things have been good since until last Friday. I ate out and think I may have been glutened. Since then my stomach has been upset and I have had diarrhea and loose mucus stools, sorry to be gross. this has been going on now for 7 days and I thought I would be over it by now if cross contaminated. Please share you thoughts on if you think I may have been glutened from the symptoms I am experiencing. Thanks.
  2. How To Stop The Immune Attack?

    Try to accept the fact that you will not feel very good but DO NOT let this take over all your thoughts. Find something to keep you busy and try to live instead of letting all your fears take over.
  3. It's happened to me more than once and I have learned that the more I worry about it the harder the weight is to put on. Relax and don't stress yourself out, it will happen. Other than that, try working out and drinking some protein shakes to build your muscles. Start slow though.
  4. Having been gluten free for over 3 years and recently alchohol free, I am looking for ideas for something good to drink at a few holiday parties I will be attending soon. Nothing too fancy but something other than a soda or water. Does anything go good with 7 up or ginger ale? I appreciate any suggestions, Merry Christmas.
  5. Before going gluten-free I was 205 lbs, very fit and muscular and worked out three times a week. I then got sick and lost alot of weight, down to around 150. After being told I had celiacs (18 months ago) I have felt alot better and am up to 180 lbs. Now the problem, 4 months ago I was back to working out three times a week using my old routine but have barely seen any results. I have added creatine to help, as I have dabbled with it in the past, but this hasn't done much except to give me more energy during workouts (which is great). If anyone has any ideas, please respond. The funny thing is I am more healthy now than before, I eat much better and have plenty of proteins. The energy is there but no results. Thanks
  6. Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

    Yes, just when they stopped asking all the same questions all of us have answered again and again.
  7. Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

    Dominos just made alot of celiacs' lives more complicated, in my case a co-worker was very excited and told me "from now on when we order pizza for lunch, we are definately going to Dominos so you can eat with us again". When I told her I wasn't quite sure it would be safe, she just stared at me and said "but they say its gluten free so you can eat it". I for one, as much as I used to love pizza, hope it flops or another pizza chain decides to do it the right way.
  8. Try the Kirklands pulled pork at costco, tasty. I also like to get a few bags of (kirkland) mission chips which are cheap and are great to munch on between meals.
  9. just brainstorming. Yes, looking for more cals in my diet as I am looking to gain a few pounds after losing alot b4 going gluten-free. thankyou for your responses!
  10. I could use your help with ideas for new side dishes I can try. I have always been a meat and potatoes guy b4gf and still enjoy my steaks, chicken, turkey..., but am growing tired of the same sides, (rice,3-4 days a week, potatoes 2-3 days a week) and maybe oreida fries or gluten-free pasta (very $$) once in a while. I also have my share of veggies and fruit throughout the day. I know this is the place to get answers and would very much appreciate any ideas. Thanks.
  11. Beverages- Gluten And Soy Free

    There are some gluten-free beers out there including redbridge which is made by budweiser and seems to be the most popular. Most whiskey, vodkas and brandys are fine, I personally have never had a reaction to any of them. Google gluten-free beverages to get a complete list.
  12. Its funny you bring this up because 2 days ago the same thing happened to me, for some reason I took a smell of this milk and it was awful, (exp. date in july), and I have not touched it since. I don't have an answer but after reading your post, I am guessing this must just be the way it smells. Hopefully we will get an answer.
  13. I tried the cookie and brownie mix on two seperate occasions and had a reaction both times, so now I just stay away.
  14. Milk Back Into My Diet?

    no, but I want to thank everyone for your responses, it was probably a stupid question but I am still abit paranoid about what goes in my body. I think I will try it first with a small bowl of cerial, thanks again Mike
  15. After starting the gluten-free diet a few months ago and not seeing any immediate changes, I stopped drinking milk and avoided dairy. Now a few months later I feel much better, but looking back maybe I should have given the new diet more time to work before eliminating the dairy products. The cost of lactose free milk is very $$, I don't realy have alot of extra money to spend and I could go for a cold glass of 2% milk. How would any of you introduce it back to your stomach without any problems? Or is this just a bad idea this early into my diet? Thanks for any help.
