I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 1998, I wasn't told anything back then about it. I
received an email about a year ago saying that Lupus and Fibromyalgia were link
to Celiac Disease. Since I was diagnosed with having both of them back in 2006 and 2007
I got serious about changing the way I was eating. I noticed a little improvement such
as some weight loss and less migraines and headaches, but not enough improvement
over-all. I was still eating corn, rice…and so forth thinking it was safe to do so, now I am
making more changes by what I have learned here. Thank you!August 8, 2010 at 2:05 pm #8720

Thank you very much, I am very glad to be here. I am looking forward to your book
coming out soon. I am dropping weight once again just learning a little from what you and your patients said in your videos. I know when I get your book I will do even better. You have help me figure out (solve the mystery) to why I wasn't losing more weight eating Gluten Free. I have you and your patients in the videos to thank.

Welcome to the forum! I am glad you were able to find us and glad you were able to be helped by the information on this site. I will have the cookbook out in Oct. and am working on a comprehensive book on gluten. Just finished up a chapter on the liver.
I look forward to your future contributions to the website and our community.
All the best,

Thanks I will be looking forward to the book and all. Great to hear!
I have a question a friend brought to my attention this:
Mesquite flour is a high-protein, low-glycemic
superfood from desert trees.
Would this be ok to use, or it still consider a grain?

wow good for you for getting the courage to change your diet! it can be tough at first.
Dr O so cool you have books coming out! i can't wait to get them!September 3, 2010 at 3:15 pm #8743
I think it's like anything once you get started and learn what we can and can't eat it gets easier. The hardest part for me is telling my friends I can't go out to eat or come over for dinner. Also teaching my husband what to buy and how to read the labels.
Looking forward to Dr. O's new book(s).
Let us know how you do on here ok?

Re mesquite flour: It is gluten free. I don't have any experience with it. Just remember that substitute flours (unless fresh and home made) should not be staple foods in your diet.September 8, 2010 at 9:30 am #8756Ariella6Member
yeah it does get easier once you get started. I am myself intolerant of all grains. not sure if i have celiacs or not. but my reactions to any grains are getting worse and worse. so i do understand. i basically can't tolerate ANY flour. sometimes that is challenging. I do ok withmost of it sometimes i want some rice tortillas though. it sets me off horribly though. Would be nice if there were local support groups for this type of stuff.
I will let you know how it goes with my daughter. 🙂 It may not be until december/january??? I have no idea. It is a ways out there yet. We dont have a hearing date yet.September 9, 2010 at 2:18 pm #8757
Thank you Dr. O I really appreciate your feedback on this.September 9, 2010 at 2:41 pm #8758
