The ones that come to mind for me are quinoa, amaranth, and hemp.

My favorite is almonds - 12 are a serving of protein.

I think the edit button allows you to edit your own message and will stay there. If thats the one you were talking about.

I have absolutely no advice about that...however, you may want to create a new post with that very subject.....Divegoddess has ALOT of great info on that subject and I think she'd see it if you posted it by topic, I'm not sure if she'll go through this post and find it.

I'd be interested now in what she'd have to say...as well as others who have tons of proteins. I know they mentioned tuna fish, nuts, but I'd be excited to see what would come up in the post.

So if you don't get any answers in here. Create that in a new topic so we can see what people recommend. I'm almost positive everyone will see it and answer.

Since we are on this subject, does anyone have any suggestions of how to get protein in without being able to have dairy, soy, or egg whites. I am very bummed that I can't have eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese and whey protein powder. I did find a rice protein powder that I can have but I need help with the other things.

Also, totally off topic, how do I get that edit button removed from my posts?

I've gotten some great ideas from this whole discussion. my husband has problems when he eats, that he has to run to the washroom 20 minutes later. Eggs are one of the triggers. I never thought allergies, or any disease, because he just thought it was because his gall bladder was taken out. His doctor just said to avoid certain foods. (nice eh?) He just switched to the same doctor as me, and he's more thorough and caring.

Thanks so much everyone!

MTNTOBEACH It's possible, however, I have had the belly for many years now. I was misdiagnosed with several issues and who knows, I may have been misdiagnosed or cross diagnosed. Everything seems to have similar side effects so it IS confusing. The only thing making sense right now is food allergies. I've been just AWFUL and It does make sense as I'm on more whole grains as I've ever been in order to get fiber.

I'm annovulatory. I don't ovulate. I stopped getting my period from the time I was 16 until 2006, when I finally got it regularly. It's since gotten odd again, but I had it two months ago and still get the symptoms of PMS every month like I'm getting it. It's hard to understand unless your in my body because I'm not explaining it correctly. So having had my period just two months ago and still getting those moody days each time in the month even though I haven't had it, well, I'm doubting its menopause. I wouldn't doubt it though either. Haha

We shall see what happens. My only concern is they do a scope down the esophogus into the small intestine to take a biopsy. I just have a fear of being out and under anasthesia because of my last surgery in 2002

I'll keep everyone updated when I find out.


Thanks again! ((grouphug))

It is amazing what food intolerances can do. I just found out that I am very intolerant of all dairy, pineapple, and egg whites! And the sadder thing is that for the last 14 years, I thought that I had Irritable bowel Syndrome when actually it was probably just these food allergies. I had a blood test for food allergies done through a nutritionist and was really surprised when I got the results. But I can say that after getting off those foods, I rarely have any stomach issues or tiredness. I hope you get your things figured out soon! Good Luck.

Hopefully you'll figure out what's up. It has to be complicated with all the other health problems.

Any chance you're in early menopause (it would really be a perimenopause). You don't look old enough, but with other health problems it can happen. I've been in perimenopause two years and gained weight in my stomach area, which I never had a problem before (I gained it evenly, everywhere), was constantly exhausted, had sleep problems, etc.

It's so frustrating trying to figure out your health sometimes. Having a doctor who is willing to work with you makes a huge difference - some just brush you off and don't go the distance.

Good luck finding out what's up

Hi HISIRISHGEM - just jumping in to say definitely DON'T start excluding gluten-containing foods until AFTER your tests - because you are correct, you won't get the right results otherwise since your body will start to recover.

I don't have celiac (at least, have never tested positive) but find I do MUCH better when excluding wheat and gluten-containing products. I made the mistake of going ahead and excluding anyway when the first set of tests came back negative, instead of persisting to the end with my doctor to get further sets of tests done. Like I say, I don't have things as seriously, but the thought of going back onto wheat and gluten foods fulltime for 3 months now (to get back to the un-healed state) is just not something I can bear to do....

But if this is your problem, be ready for a dramatic improvement - it will really make a difference when you do exclude!! There are some allergy SparkTeams that you might find useful - people in those have celiac and will be able to pass on good advice...

Hang in there - there could well light at the end of that tunnel for you!!!

Thanks so much! I found out that if I start gluten free diet, then when I have the labs done, they'll come out normal. So it's encouraged to continue eating everything I'd regularly eat UNTIL the labs are done.

I found that bit of information interesting. Again, I don't know if this is what I have. BUT, it seems awful interesting. We shall see.

I keep thinking, just what I need, another "issue". But as bad as I've been feeling, I'm thinking if this is really the problem, what a blessing it would be to feel better. I'm also wondering if I was misdiagnosed somehow and had all along Celiacs which caused the other autoimmune issues. Who knows, it seems like such a whirlwind and everything has the same correlation of symptoms. All I want is to feel better.

Anyways, thanks for responding ladies!

Hi You may be onto something with Celiac's Disease. I hope you can find out what's going on so you can be treated and start feeling much better. Finding out you'll also be able to know what and what not to eat. You might also do an inquiry on Google on Wheat Allergens. I'm don't have Celiac's Disease but also have a lot of the same symptoms that you have, too, I'm severly allergic to wheat, corn, soy, and a little bit to gluten, too. I went to an allergist and he took tests and I found out I was allergic to a bunch of food items. If I can be of any further help, please feel free to SparkMail me.

Maybe in the meantime, you could begin eating a non-gluten diet ... and see if you find some relief! The people I know who have gluten allergies saw immediate changes when they changed their diet, I think.
You're right -- there are many, many products gluten-free now. Whole Foods has whole aisles and freezer cases dedicated to it. So you could have a gluten-free week (go on-line and get food ideas) and see if you notice a change!

Good luck. Sounds like you've been through so much discomfort and pain.

Many of you know I've been having issues with inability to lose weight, that I have diabetes, hypothyroid, the big puffy belly with a smaller legs and upper body where clothes haven't fit well at all.

I think it was in here where someone asked if Bowel Movements were the way they were and I had mentioned expelling nutrient rich foods like berries and greens whole. ((sorry for the TMI)

I figured I wasn't getting nutrients I needed with expelling those foods, but I coughed it up to either hypothyroid (part of the polycystic ovarian syndrome) OR the fact that I don't have a gall bladder since 2002.

This past year, I've been getting pretty lethargic, feeling inable to even get up some days...yet again ANOTHER symptom of hypothyroid. My levels were fine, but my dr. raised it since I complained to 125mcg for thyroid meds. STILL I'm literally exhausted, expelling my food....and I'm more exhausted than ever!

Some of you told me that with expelling food like that I needed to bring it up to the dr., yet I STILL wanted to wait and research a bit. Things just haven't been making sense.

As I've been raising my protein, I've also been trying to raise the amount of fiber in my diet. I.E. greens, whole wheat, oatmeal, wheat germ and Kashi shakes with protein AND tons of fiber in it.

For YEARS now I've been complaining to my husband how for some reason, everytime I eat an egg, I end up with diarreha (AGAIN, sorry for the TMI).

Today I've just been SO down in the dumps depressed, just wanting to end it all because no matter what I do, I'm just not feeling well. I'm trying!

Anways, I started doing a google search about the inability to absorb vitamins and foods and several links came up with information pertaining to tests for malabsorbtion and seeing a gastroentologist. I saw all the listings.....several I've known about and didn't think pertained to me, one that was scarey that possibly could pertain to me and I was fearful because my friend passed from complications to it, THEN, I saw a link to Celiacs Disease. I've heard of it, wasn't too familiar, though I see foods all over the place catoring to gluten free products.

Oh MY GOODNESS! Could it possibly be that maybe I was misdiagnosed years ago? Apparently because its an autoimmune disease there's a correlation with thyroid disease and diabetes.

The one thing about this, is that one of the symptoms of the malnutritian is drastic weightloss. I have TOTAL opposite. I have the beer belly and frustrating weight gain no matter how hard I work out.

Could it in fact be possible that I'm allergic to gluten and the fact that I've changed my WHOLE diet around and purchased whole wheat flour, brown rice, Kashi shakes, TONS of fiber whole grain cereals, and such....could it possibly be why since adding MORE of this stuff into my diet why I'm all of a sudden sicker than a dog? Not to mention the fact that I've recently got hemmeroids from eating so much fiber (sorry TMI again).

Anyways, I think I just found a HUGE key to what may be literally killing my energy, and very being right now. If I had the energy to cry, I'd fall on my knees right now!

So I'm not going too overboard and diagnosing myself, I'm going to go back to the Primary Care dr. and ask for the tests for malabsorbtion and vitamin deficeincy, see what the labs are like and then ask to see a gasteroenterologist. I've had enough dr.'s to know that if I run in saying I have it, they'll most likely want to treat me for it even if I don't have it. So treading on unbiased waters without telling them what I think I have...while just asking for the tests to be run will be very helpful in figuring out once and for all what I may or may not have.

Anyways, just wanted to thank the team. I wouldn't have done a further search and probably would have ignored them if I hadn't confided in the most embarassing issue.

I still can't get over the egg issue. Who'd a thunk that eating eggs could potentially be an issue with celiacs disease...BUT if the chicken is fed grains with gluten.....thats a HUGE reason why eggs aren't working for me.

Anyone in here have Celiacs that may have further info for me? How are you using that in conjunction with eating clean?
