Hi and welcome to the team. emoticon emoticon

There are plenty of foods that you can eat just have to read the labels and watch out for hidden flour.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Google Gluten Free Casein Free Diets - those avoid Gluten and Dairy Completely - even though you are only lactose intolerant and might be able to do dairy with enzymes. There is a ton of info out there.

I hope this link helps some.

emoticon You need flowers about now! Welcome! Just know that every day you eat gluten-free is worth it, that you will be richly rewarded with better health. Stay positive! You can do it!

(At first, I found myself eating the same things over and over - just know that as you learn the gf lifestyle, that will change. Just do it!)

Oh, and here's one hint I wish someone would have told me: you don't need to run out and buy all the different flours right away. I didn't bake much before, and I don't after dx. But I bought all the flours - they go bad quickly too. If you have a health food store, you can look for (don't look at the price - your health is more important - and you'll get used to it) Pamela's brand mixes, esp. all purpose. www.pamelasproducts.com/Products_fra

Also, there are gf foods available on Amazon if you know what you like, and s/h is free for purchases over $25.

Hi Louvene51! Welcome! I know how overwhelming it can seem when you're first trying to find those GF foods. My best suggestion is to go to your local health-food/oranic store, like Wild Oats, Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. These places will often have food that's marked as GF (so it's easy to find), and you'll be able to find tasty substitutes for the food you used to eat.

(They've even got dairy-free cheese, so you really can get anything!)

Good luck and hang in there--you can do it!

Hi-

I do not have Celiac Disease, although I am allergic to gluten and dairy. I see a dietian. I am not sure if you are able to eat soy or rice. Quinoa is another awesome grain that is great, try substituting broth instead of water if you decide to make it.

Another thing that also helps me is that I am kosher. Labels that are labelled kosher and have pareve or meat symbol are generally okay. Ones with a D or dairy symbol means the product contains dairy.

Good luck.

I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and I am Lactose Intolerant. I want to lose weight too so I need to put it together. I don't know what to expect or how to get started. I could use some advice please.

Thanks
