Hi and welcome to the team. Have your tried the other nut butter like almonds, cashews etc. they are out there and are better for you or you can make your own if you have a food processor.

If you want to eat low carb your life will be very easy! I do low carb-type eating and have off and on for years! Gluten is in a lot of things but you will find by sticking to your basic meat and veggies meals you will do great and it will be an esier transition. Then you just have to worry about condiments. I think most peanut butter is GF. The psoriasis may clear up if you are very diligent with the GF diet. If not, then dairy might be an issue. I know a lot of people have skin issues from dairy, myself included. emoticon

thanks guys! I appreciate it! I mainly eat nuts, dairy,meat, and veggies now. Can anyone recommend good gluten free flavored nuts and gluten free peanut butter? The natural stuff that is unsweetened is nasty. I usually eat Jif, which I know has sugar in it, but I could atleast start there. Then add in a few products a little at a time then see if I can have potatoes and rice once I notice a difference. Thanks for all the help! I don't know. I have always hesitated going gluten free, because it seems like such a huge task.

I know that Gluten has an affect on me... for at our wedding last month , I though it was okay to have some Cake...~smile~ it was awful... I had bad stomach aches and awful gas... sorry... I don't have the stomach problems anymore or the bloating... and I just feel great over all... My energy has come back and My hair has gotten thicker and more healthy...~smile~ just be more in tune with your body... and you will know... I had the test for Celiac and it came back negitive... but it does run in my family... with a cousin ... I just know I feel better... and it gets easy... you will find products that you will really like ... there are alot out there now..~
Good Luck emoticon

I am gluten free. I have found that I have to watch so much more closely than being low carb. But I can have potatoes and rice. I run, so I need my carbs. Just can't have the gluten.

Hi there! ?years ago, I took a test from a naturopath and she told me I was gluten sensitive. I never followed the diet though. I have done south beach off and on for a long time now, and I always notice how much better I feel without carbs. I also have psoraisis and PCOS, and Hashimoto's, all of which I am told can be derived from a gluten sensitivity. in all honesty, when I had the test done, I had been out drinking the night before, and I thought maybe the test results were wrong because of all the grain alcohol in my system, so I never paid it any attention. I wasn't really looking for answers back then, but I am now. Anyway, my question is, I have been doing low carb and while I feel better, I have not noticed my symptoms of Psoriasis getting any better. Shouldn't it? I am probably still getting some gluten in my diet, but not like I was. My other question is, how easy is it to eat low carb and gluten free? Is there anyone here that does that? Thanks! I do not really want to get retested again, just because of the money, but I just thought I could give it a go. I have been low carb for almost a month again now, but I thought I would gradually work my way over to gluten free from low carb and stick with gluten free for a while. How long does it take to see results if you are having a problem?
