About Me

Ben (Caucasian male 58 y/o - 175cm/69" - 62kg/136lbs)

Diagnosed Celiac 12-Apr-2012

Dairy intolerant, B12 Mal-absorption, Bile-acid Mal-absorption.

2008-2011 Lived in Northeast of Thailand, almost symptom free. :)

Lost 12kg/26.5lbs in the process.

Now only eat Thai food.

Easy to cook - easy gluten/dairy free - delicious
