Switch to wine or cider... gluten free and still gets you drunk.

Gluten and dairy free. Being gluten free has cut down bloating dramatically, feel loads better. Suffer with allergies and they seem
to of cleared up.Dairy certainly played havoc with mucus and phlegm, being inflammatory;this has now improved.  Its sometimes difficult to maintain, but worth it.
Recommend if you have/suspect, gluten intolerance symptoms.

My niece has removed gluten from her diet, and she claims to feel a LOT better.  She says she's sleeping better, and her migraines have gone away.

Of course, her diet over the last several years has been 98% pizza, spaghetti, and bread, so that may have had something to do with it.  :eyeroll:   She's finally got it into her head that she should eat meat and veggies.....

I put this in the Pissed Off thread in RS, but it's worth repeating here:

Here is a hint for any of you who may know someone who gets migraines:

When the sufferer is in the beginning stages of a migraine, complete with nausea, scotoma, and pain that feels like an iron spike in one eyeball, do NOT, DO NOT suggest to them that they might not get migraines if they'd "go gluten free".

It very nearly got someone cuntpunted today. As it was I acted completely unlike myself and literally yelled at her to "get out of here!  JUST GET OUT!  I DON'T NEED ADVICE RIGHT NOW!!!" I don't think anyone in the office has ever heard me yell in anger before but I was really feeling like crap.  If that's the best you can come up with, then keep your trap shut.

She's a pain in everyone's ass anyway with her unsolicited preachy diet advice and I probably could have gotten away with decking her; I don't think anyone would have corroborated her story.

I've had migraines for 30+ years and tried just about everything - dietary modifications, chiropractic (they love to be able to cure everything) - to no avail.  It seems it's just one of those things with me though it is much, much less frequent now.  (And now there is Imitrex - so much better than waiting until the agony is in full flare and then going to the ER for a shot of Demerol!)

Just wanted to post this somewhere. Made it through my first vegetarian week. This should be pretty easy to keep up cus I don't eat to much meat anyway. Last Wednesday I made my usual chili recipe only with no meat and used 2 more bean types instead. It was awesome and didn't need the meat to taste good at all. Put it over rice just as usual and it worked well.....

Detoxing myself of it has helped clear up my villi quite a bit and my absorption rate of proteins, iron and B12 have risen. It's def not for me.

I didn't go gluten free, but l decided to pretty much cut out sugar and carbs from my diet, "the white stuff" as I've seen it called.  I have cut out 98% of priocessed sugar and 85% of carbs, pretty much only whole wheat when I do eat it.  I started the first week of April.

I have lost two "belt loop" sizes and had a great surprise at the Dr yesterday.  My blood pressure has dropped significantly.  I have been 130-135/80-85 for years and that is with medication.  It was at 190/115 at one point without medication.

Yesterday it was 112/60 and I was shocked and thought there must have been a mistake.  At the end of my appt (at least 20 min later) I asked to have it taken again and explained why.  It was 120/70.  I mentioned cutting out sugar and carbs and the nurse said that can certainly have an effect on BP.

I am ecstatic about this,  I just wanted to lose a few inches and be healthier.  That was a great bonus.

People suspected of colon cancer which is one of the most preventable cancers and a good chance of survival if caught early.

That's amazing Digi!!!  Honestly, I've seen SIGNIFICANT results for myself for changing the way I eat. Not just in how I look, but how I feel, my moods, and my health.

That's great to hear! :D

No I know that lol. I thought people were going in for other reasons, like to see how much gluten was clogging up their intestinal tract.

Thanks, it does feel good.  We have almost completely cut out processed foods as well, as much as we can with three teenagers always on the go.  I ride a stationary bike weekday mornings for about 30 minutes as well.

I just popped in to tell you all that gluten-free pastry crust tastes like cardboard ass!

Someone brought in a couple of apple pies for the office today.  I didn't know they were gluten-free when I got a small slice to go with my coffee, so let it be known that I had NO preconceived notions!

Hard, not flaky at all, and it had sort of an "off" flavor I can't quite find a suitable term for.  It looked lovely, pretty lattice crust and all, but the taste was just wrong.  The apples were good, though.

I should go totally gluten free. But I can't do it everyday, in every product.
Sometimes it's difficult to find these products.

Nowadays there are books who teach how to cook gluten free, lac free and so on.

A good option is to use rice products. It works for me.

Living in a (virtually) vegan gluten free household.  My daughter was the first one who actually made the conscious decision to change her lifestyle to that of a gluten free vegan.  I've been feeling guided to go that route as well for some time now,  there is energy in the things we digest... and mostly followed along... old habits die hard especially eating/drinking habits!  
I was recently diagnosed with RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and the Dr recommended following a paleo diet plan.  In my research though it would mean cutting out nuts, seed, beans, lentils - all of which i LOVE and some even help with some RA symptoms...
not 100 % gluten free vegan, but i'm getting there... a work in progress...  :)  it's a more laborious lifestyle choice - especially with the gluten - which when i'm not flaring i'm OK with.  

We've made tons of vegan gluten free pizza's, pot pie, fruit pies, breads, cookies, brownies, cinnamon rolls was our latest triumph.
