YES!! Absolutely!

I take OTC Omegas, Calcium(1000mg daily in 2 doses)
and a multivitamin daily (plus a baby aspirin as directed by my MD). I get my vitamins from the Vitamin shoppe (also available on line...but we have a store very close to my home. Also I take both Rx Synthroid and Lipitor daily (the lowest dose ) and monthly Boniva started in the last 15 months due to my bone density beginning to show changes into osteopenia as I neared 65th B-day last year. Osteoporosis runs in my family and also is documented to be a side effect of both celiac disease as well as gluten/gut absorption issues. Also issues for me.

As for my diet now...I just try to be sure to get enough protein, still eat the 4 C veggies ( don't worry about select or occasional...just eat lots of them) and unlimited salads with lemon and olive oil or my horseradish hot mustard/rice vinegar dressing...added nuts, berries and some 2% cottage cheese and enjoy good cheese as a snack or social nibble. Try to leave the (Gluten Free) crackers alone. (But I do like the C-R-U-N-C-H...and do not always resist!) None of the rice carbohydrate gluten free substitutes have come back into my life...(bagels, cereal, waffles etc) ..all too high on the Glycemic Index...so I never added that stuff back into my diet. I don't crave it or miss it. Been GF for over 8 years now. Drinking alcohol has become passe...I consider wine as a food now ..much as my European relatives (Italian) do...and do not drink much other than a very good red esp a burgandy with an nice meal. The carbs and extra 100 calories/glass would mean even more time on the treadmill...and I'm not sure even that would help! In the past we drank wine daily with dinner..I walked 5 miles on the treadmill...and still had a weight problem. Not willing to test that one out.... Occasional is enough. I like being thin, healthy and my new wardrobe...a lot!!

I like my new life. And no one else has to........and more importantly, no one is able to pressure me off my game. 18 months and counting in June!! There is a 4lb window from my goal weight where I tolerate some fluxuations but think some of that is probably muscle because of the exercise. All clothing still fits fine since end of last summer. My P3 was different from everyone else's because with out the grains...and keeping carbs lower, my breakfast is usually smaller and under 300 calories...where it gets closer to 400 on Sundays only. My maintenance is very much a boilerplate. It is easy-peasy.... That is the real prize at the end. Figuring out what is worthwhile to you. Because I have simplified it...there is no need to track every day. I'm on auto pilot for the rest of my life, and my spouse is riding shotgun.

Ditto for me too, re: vitamins and Gluten Free (4 years), My drink of choice is good wine also. We live in a fairly famous wine producing region of Canada with lots of international winners, and I am Italian descent with relatives who own a large vinyard & winery in Australia - my maiden name is De Bortoli and the founder Vittorio is my grandpa's ("Nonno") cousin. http://www.australiasfirstfamiliesof...ortoli-Wines-4

DH & I have a little wine cellar (never more than 2 dozen bottles at any one time) and we drink about a bottle a week. Alcohol calories can kill you - they go down so easy, interesting website from the UK - National Health Services - you just have to figure out some of the non-familiar terms ie: pork scratchings lol - http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/alcohol/P...n-alcohol.aspx

Liana-
Hope you are better today..the risks with eating out at some types of restaurants is sooo tricky. We are so careful where we go...and what we order, but it's never a sure thing is it??

We are quite nervous about our upcoming trip to Mexico. My daughters and I are all used to how we have to travel and order and know what is most often the safest bet...(not always right about that tho' are we???) ...but our 12 YO granddaughter is newly diagnosed and still not healed. She also has seafood, tree nut and a lot of fresh fruit and vegetable allergies. We are taking a lot of food for her with us. My daughter already contacted the resort and the airlines...and we are going to be allowed to pack and even carry on a lot of food (with a Drs letter.) I am still worried. Her parents want her to learn what she has to do to take good care of herself, and international travel is going to be part of her life.

Makes her granny a wreck......I can't stand to see her hurt or be sick. She is my first grandchild, (named after me even) and has the sweetest disposition of all the kids. She always comes and crawls in my bed when we travel or vist them. I will have to be on 24-7 to protect her .. as will all the adults in our group.

How long does it take you to recover? I usually feel it for a few days after an exposure. So does my youngest daughter. We don't know what to expect with this kid..for how long or how bad she might get....

Thx RuthAnn..we all carry epi pens when with her...(peanut /nut/shellfish allergy is really serious)...and even the 9 YO sibling has been trained and able to administer. Don't know how my daughter deals with it 24-7 esp when she is away from home at school. This kid carries a cell phone even in a school that does not routinely allow kids to have them in class or during the school day.

So, after reading the last couple of pages, I strolled over to MFP and calculated my BMR at my goal weight. Feeling light headed now . . .

I'll get it together . . . I can do this . . . youch.

Mexico is actually fairly easy for those of us with gluten problems; where I have to watch is in Europe, and Asia where they use a lot of soy sauce based dishes, and fish sauces can have gluten in too.

I am feeling not too bad this evening but it takes me about 2-3 days to be OK tummy wise, and a week or so for the joint pains to calm down. I usually have no problem at this particular restaurant, but there was a new guy on and he didn't get the big explanation - I just assumed the other cook would fill him in... my bad! I am the only one who can be responsible for my health, I shouldn't have assumed he would understand and I should have supervised while he cleaned the grill & got new utensils

At least I don't have to carry an EPI pen for this. It must be hard for your granddaughter & family. I know it takes LOTS of planning. I can carry my own food onto airplanes too with Dr's note - which comes in handy if you are trying to watch your figure anyhow, lol.

THANKS for this...
I am feeling not too bad this evening but it takes me about 2-3 days to be OK tummy wise, and a week or so for the joint pains to calm down.
Interesting...that is also what I experience! The joint problems linger..
I usually have no problem at this particular restaurant, but there was a new guy on and he didn't get the big explanation - I just assumed the other cook would fill him in... my bad! I am the only one who can be responsible for my health, I shouldn't have assumed he would understand and I should have supervised while he cleaned the grill & got new utensils

When you didn't post I was worried for you. Some are like the canary in the coal mines....and can spiral dowh hill with very little cross contamination as you well know. My youngest daughter had descended into sprue and it finally took steroid treatment to reverse her immune-response even after 10 months on a GF diet....! So glad you are getting back to you! We adults who have to watch were OK the last few trips to Mexico...but this is a different game with a kid. The food is everywhere...and while we don't want to make her paranoid...her recovery is just underway, and she is very frail. My daughter said the resort was super accommodating on the phone with her and assured her they will do everything to make this part of the trip OK. Some resorts do have a GF area in the buffets now. We tend to do dinner in the ala carte restaurants as a family ...(photo ops for all of us with the kids and each other...dressed up and with sun glow from the long day of being outside and in the water...LOL!)... so keeping our fingers crossed. Again... you feel better.

65x65: It was easier for us as adults to eat at the little local restaurants (where most did not speak English), since they didn't try to cater to NA or European type wheat based diets. There were only corn tortillas available and rice & beans and fresh veggies with fresh salsas and fresh fruit and cheese. BUT, of course your gd is also in a difficult position due to anaphylactic shock from food - which is a different ball game altogether.
I've read in several places that it can take up to two years of eating GF for celiacs to have their villi heal again. That's without getting glutened in the meantime of course...

Here's a website for celiactravel.com with the link for 'cook cards' in other languages which inform the cooks of your dietary needs. They are provided free but you can make a donation toward the site as a thank you gesture.
http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/

Also you can get a multi lingual phrase passport from here: http://glutenfreepassport.com/

I hope these help!! (We do travel a lot and they have come in handy to be certain the restaurant/server/cook understands clearly)

hey guys.. I am on Phase 1 and was wondering what kind of food would I eat when in maintenance mode. I am an Indian and I was wondering if Dal and roti will be a good combination for lunch and dinner? I was a very heavy rice eater and thanks to IP I don't have any cravings for rice anymore but I was worried if I start eating curries and roti I will gain weight.
Here is the recipe for dal and roti you can advise me if having them will be disastrous.
Toamato Dal:
Toor dal ( Indian Lentils) - 1 cup
Tomatoes - 2 chopped into medium
Jalapenos - 1 (depending on your spice level)
Cilantro - 2 tbsp
oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tbsp

Wash the dal and add the dal,tomatoes to a pressure cooker until they are completely cooked.
Add little salt and in another pan add oil and after it's heated up add mustard seeds and let them splatter and then add cumin seeds , cilantro and add this oil mixture to dal.

Roti:
Wheat flour - 2 or 3 cups
water - may be 1 cup to make it a good dough

Add water to wheat flour and make it into a nice dough. The dough shouldn't be too watery. You should be able to make little balls and roll them into round roti. Warm up a pan and roast the roti until the dough is cooked. Some people apply some oil to roti or add some oil to roti to make the roti's more tasty.
You can cut some onions and add some lemon, pinch of salt and pepper and take them with roti and dal. It tastes really good.

Dal is protein, oil is fat and roti is carbs. I was wondering if this can be consumed during maintenance phase?

I cook & eat Indian a lot (I am gluten free) and this is a perfect meal for your fat-light meal in maintenance. You may want to add a few other low carb veggies in with this meal for more vitamins. Just watch the amount of oil or ghee you use with the roti and if you can, lower the amount of fat in the recipe by 1/2. I don't do roti because of the wheat - I use chickpea flour 'breads' - but those are higher carb foods with little fat. If you use yogourt for a raita or to mix into your egg/meat curries, try to make it 0-2% max fat. There is actually a forum thread for IP Indian style - me and a few others are on it although I think they are still on IP1. Sorry I can't think of the name of the thread off hand, but I will look & post here and you can do a search.
