  1. I'm so glad to see this. It made me sick for three days. Every time I ate it. Come to think of it, so did Udi's gluten-free pizza. Hmmm...
  2. I downloaded and use Intolerance Food Diary app for android - for everything that passed my lips. Even toothpaste and chewing gum. It's an awesome way to keep track of what you're eating and finding the culprits. In fact, it taught me how to write food down. Ie, don't just write "steak & potato for dinner". I learned to write down what seasonings were on the steak, what kind of butter I put on the potato, what was in the salad, what was in the salad dressing, etc. It really shows you what you're eating. After a week you'll have a remarkably clear picture.
  3. Hello everyone! I'm so happy to have found this board. I've read so much and gained so much insight, thank you all so much for this forum. About 3 years ago I was sick every day for a year. Out of the blue. No one could figure out what was causing my relentless, debilitating nausea, dizziness and pain inside. I was at the end of my rope in every way. Doctors said reflux, take nexium, didn't help. That's as far as I got medically. I went on a low carb diet to lose weight and soon noticed my symptoms went away. Stunned, I flew into obsessive research and learned about fodmaps and gluten. As I weaned off the low carb diet and went back to my regular foods, the nausea came back. Lightbulb! Stop eating gluten. After going through the 5 stages of grief I slowly and painfully went through the elimination process with pretty good success. Now two years later, I have a good strong list of safe foods and where to eat out, etc. Feeling great and all that stuff. But, I can eat pizza. Yes. Any pizza from any pizza place. In fact I eat pizza almost every day for lunch with no problems. My first question is, how is that possible? Everyone I know is baffled by it. I read somewhere that fresh bakery bread might be tolerated by gluten-free, and I thought maybe the low rise of pizza crust might have something to do with it. Maybe yeast? Except for freschetta gluten free pizza. I ate one 3 days ago and I'm still hurting and nauseous. I don't get physically ill, I just suffer with intense bloating, dizziness, and a nauseated feeling. From a gluten-free pizza??? How is that possible? I eat at pizza hut or my local pizza place ALL THE TIME, why did this gluten-free pizza make me sick? Thank you for reading this and I sincerely look forward to your replies.
  4. Before you freak out, try the no carb diet. Find the discipline. Then after about a month, introduce one carb item. See how you feel. With strict discipline, in no time you'll have a complete list of safe foods and you'll know exactly how to eat. Plus, you'll lose a lot of weight. Go on girl, you can do it
  5. If you really, really want to get to the core of this problem, strip down your diet. Right down to the bone. Go on a strict low carb diet. Absolutely no carbs or starches for 3 weeks. See if you feel phenomenal, because you will. Then, introduce one carb at a time. Schedule one carb every 3 days. Make a list. I promise you'll find what foods are ailing you. It'll be tough, but you will absolutely find what foods bother you and which ones don't.
