Try not to get too caught up in "what if this is hindering my healing?" You can drive yourself crazy thinking like that. Perhaps the rice and agave are fueling your healing, and without them you'd be healing even more slowly than you are.

I personally don't do well on carbs in the morning, as it just leads to more carb cravings later in the day. I do best having my carbs in the late afternoon or evening. But since this is working for you- having your daily carbs in the morning and then none later in the day- keep on doing what's working.

I don't know what kind of cooking facilities you're going to have on campus, but if you're able to have a  toaster oven, you can bake muffins with similar ingredients as the pancakes- maybe even use the exact same batter. I did that the year I had an off-campus studio apartment. I bought a muffin tin that fit into the toaster oven, and I could bake 6 muffins at a time. I baked daily and used the muffins, snacks between meals, etc.

If you're not allowed a toaster oven in your dorm room (I wasn't) then you'll have to find some ready-made foods to provide your daily grain portion. You may do best having a rice side dish at lunchtime, since breakfast carbs are usually wheat and potatoes.

I have been grain free for a long time and feel fine. Sometimes, I will have an occasional rice cake or a serving of quinoa, but in general, I can't imagine making grains a part of my lifestyle daily.

Maybe someday, but I am in no hurry

Rice and agave nectar are actually "superfoods" on my customized "SWAMI" diet.  So if that works for you, stick with it!  And good luck!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

HA! Thanks for all the support you guys! The only grain I have eaten for months is riceeee, rice cakes, rice flour pancakes! When I wake up in the morning I sort of crave carbs,


The "carb" craving just might be the Tyrosine found in rice and other carbs.  Red meat is loaded with Tyrosine.  Being that you are an O, small amounts of protein in the morning just might be the trick to satisfy those cravings an be much better for you.


Be who you are.  Those who mind don't matter, those who matter won't mind.

I'm sort of paranoid about intestinal health. I just ate some coconut and feel great, but it's supposed to be an avoid, but I've eaten it my whole life (from Trinidad). Anyways, rice, peanuts, grains, all have anti-nutrients and supposedly upset our mucosial linings. But I wonder if that is because we have upset our intestinal balances at first. I mean I understand gluten being evil, because no one would just eat wheat wild unless it was highly processed, but corn is grown to eat, beans, coconuts. I mean certain plants create these antinutrients so that they do make us sick, but we have adapted to certain extents. And our bacteria flora keep us mucoused up, and help to break down the antinutrients

give the guidelines a chance to heal your gut

take it one day at a time

make sure you decide which route you wish to follow.....I highly recommend this ER-GT route not paleo, but the choice is utterly yours

I wish I could afford a swami!! But I can't and I don't have a doctor that could do it for me right now. It's hard to fallow your body, but I am finally mastering it. I understand that gluten and such are really bad, but I am not a diagnosed celiac and did enjoy eating bread until I got such skin disorders. I miss ketchup and piggg too, but I would rather be healthierrr
