I made some great gf banana bread and added rice bran and ground flax along with the rice flour. It also had nuts in it so it was full of fiber! and tasted great! (probably not too low calorie though)

I add flax to my cereal/oatmeal ect. I eat a lot of beans. I like steel cut oatmeal. It takes longer to fix, but more filling. Getting more fiber is something I also need to watch. Maybe others have some ideas for us as well!

Hi, I'm Lynda, I was told by my doc yesterday that I should go gluten free for a month, as I've had many of the symptoms of Celiac, and my brother also has been GF for a while now. I'll be seeing her in a month's time, in the meantime they ran the blood panel, some urinalysis and stool sample tests. Since I've been watching what I eat trying to lose weight, I have been astounded at how much high fructose corn syrup is in EVERYTHING, but now, after my forays to the health food stores yesterday, I am astounded that Wheat is in EVERYTHING!
One question I have, is that I was eating high fiber breakfast cereals and breads to boost my fiber intake, but the GF cereals I have seen don't seem to have much fiber. What do you do to increase fiber?

Hi, I actually gained my weight from using steroids, which actually caused me worse stomach issues and finally lead to my diagnois. I've tried the subsitutes and there are a few good tasting ones but with higher calories content. I have 4 birth children, 4 adopted children(2 were drug babies,and twins with medical special needs)I also have 3 foster children. when i get them in bed at night i tend to go for my milk duds, the chewing helps to relax me, i feel so depribed watching all of them eat their regular foods. I was doing better for a while but with Christmas it was hard. i'm getting back on track now hang in there, a lot of us have gone thru the same thing!

HI! I sound like you. I am 42 work with Middle Schoolers who are special education students. I have done the same thing -- I started out afraid to eat anything except fresh fruits, veggies and plain meats, chicken etc. BUT watching my family and friends continue to eat what they want has been hard so I have looked hard at substitutes and have overdone myself with gluten free sweets and bread and I have gained most of the weight I lost back (NOT a good thing)! So, I am trying very hard to limit myself and eat sensibly!!! Good luck and welcome to the group!

See - I can have 2% milk on my GF cereal (weekends only do I do this) but I cannot tolerate sour cream, most cheeses but I can eat GF low fat yogurt. For me it is more the fat content I think. EveryBODY is different.

If you look at my nutrition tracker, you will notice that I am horrendously bad at eating. But I do not eat gluten products, I hate feeling icky. Sometimes I forget to flip and read the allergen warning notice and gluten myself - usually I notice it before I use it or I figure it out pretty quickly.

You can do it!!! We are all in this together!

I am 32 years old. I have had celiac for about 4 years now. I almost wish I had been born with it so I wouldn't know how things really should taste! However there are some products out there that I find very tasty. I am starting to cut milk products out now also. I am having A LOT of trouble with these things. It makes me very sad because I LOVE LOVE ice cream. I read about one other member that lost 10 lbs at first because she was afraid to eat anything. I was the same exact way and then I discovered what I could eat and I think resentment made me over eat the things I could have. I am trying to gain a balance now and come to terms with the diagnosis. I also have a stressful job and that makes me want to eat everything in sight when I get home. I work with kids that have severe behavioral and/or social disabilities. It is very rewarding but wearing. Hello to all in this group and look forward to supporting each other.
