I just got my self-diagnosis of celiac confirmed, doc said I'm probably also lactose intolerant. In a way I'm bummed, but in another way, I've committed to the BTD so it's no big loss on either front anymore. I just wish I weren't soooo reactive to everything. I'm thankful to the guidance of the BTD though, never would have even known why I was sick without it. If you're sick all the time, and eating the same basic foods everyday, you don't realize it's the food making you sick.
Here's what I can't eat, due to intolerance, food allergies, reactions, etc.
Wheat, Kamut, Spelt
Ezekiel and Essene bread...there's gluten there in my gut's opinion :-)
Oats (not sure if there's always a celiac reaction there, but they do plug me up at the very least)
Artificial Citric Acid
Dairy, I'm beginning to learn
Corn, I'm beginning to learn
Couldn't eat converted white rice for a few years, but now all rice is fine. I think the wheat was confusing my system.
Then of course, most of the avoids make me feel, at the very least, a little tired.
But hey, the list of things I can eat is much longer!
