Well people I hate to admit but I think part of my IBS problem is WHEAT of all things!


Been keeoing a food/symptom diary for a while. Yesterday I didn't have any wheat products until about 7 pm (french bread with dinner). After I ate my stomach started to swell a little, I felt all gummed up inside.

BUT I LOVE pasta and bread whhaaahahah

meh, what can I do, don't have much choice.

Go to the health food store and find gluten-free products. I found this place online (don't know if it's any good or not, but will help you price comparison): http://www.glutenfreemall.com/catalog/pastas-noodles-c-29.html?gclid=CNWSwvar-owCFQJUZQodsUUbCw As you can see, they have a whole range of pastas, and even breads and rice!

Of course, this is going to make your grocery bil skyrocket, but it's worth if if you never have to buy Beano-o or Immoium ever again, right?
 
Keri, all I did was make your link linkable. - Lil :-)

I'd be laughing my way all the way down the gluten-free aisle if that's all it took to cure my stomach problems. :-)

I can relate, big time...sad isn't it. I miss french bread!

I've been almost gluten free for quite some time. Had to add some of that back in for my celiac test. Boy, I felt bad...almost instantly. Test came back negative (which I knew it would), but I'm going back to the way I ate prior to the test. I felt so much better. Sure seems like a lot of people lately are becoming (or have been) intolerant or sensitive to wheat/gluten stuff and are just now finding that out. Very strange if you ask me.

Btw, it is rather pricey for the GF stuff...have you picked up a loaf of GF bread? It's like holding a brick! My grocery store actually carries a substantial amount of GF products -- cheaper than the health food store, but still a bit pricey.

I still want my french bread though!!! yeah

Hey Starrnr

Haven't seen the GF bread yet, but I have eaten Ezekiel bread which is also like a brick!

I'm not too happy about it, but after last night I KNOW it's wheat and/or gluten. Have stayed away from it today and feel much better...

darn the french I say with their WONDERFUL breads and pastries.....LOL scool

I know the feeling about eating wheat stuff and feeling bad. I had a small bit of 'white' pasta prior to my celiac test -- it had been over 2 years since I had had some. Boy o boy, did I feel sick after eating it (it was good though!).

I haven't tried the Ezekiel bread, although I have seen it. These breads are just too dense and funky tasting for me. Truth be told, I'd rather eat a loaf of fresh, french bread than a piece of chicken any darn day!!! LOL I have learned that that is just not a good thing for me... Ah well...live and learn I guess.

Hope you continue to feel well. If you find something interesting to eat, please let me know. I'm always interested in new things.

Star, did you see that link? They sell gluten-free bread-making kits. You might can find a way to cook it yourself to make it light, like normal bread.

  LOL
 
I told my husband when I tried the ezekiel bread (I'm not fond of it)..."do I eat this, or is this my plate?"  Because it IS so dense can't imagine using it like regular bread, say in a sandwich.
 
 I think I may try Keriamom's suggestion too...

Keri - I bookmarked it, but haven't had a chance to look at it yet. That would be cool - good, light tasting GF bread! Thanks!

Just wanted to sympathize.  I have the same issues with wheat.  I'm still waiting on celiac biopsies to come back, but I already know that I feel better when I avoid at least breads and pasta.  My DH bought me a gluten-free pizza crust kit last Friday.  I must say, it was awful.  It nauseates me just thinking about it.  I told him for our weekly pizza night, I will just have a salad from now on.  I will keep looking for other gluten-free products, but I imagine most of the gluten-free breads and pastas will not taste the same as the real thing.

My husband is diabetic and he sometimes uses scrambled eggs in lieu of pasta. I've had them with spaghetti sauce on them and it's quite good, actually. There's not really a no-carb bread option, though, which is what gets him. He loves pizza. I did find a recipe for using hamburger meat to make a "crust" with, and he does like that, but it makes my heart constrict to look at all that saturated fat.
