    Be strong! Follow the 5 tips, one by one. Don’t try to do everything at the same time. There is a lot to do, not only gluten food elimination. Begin with eliminate the obvious gluten food and then every day try to learn more over the hidden gluten food and cross contamination, and apply one new rule everyday in your life. Step by step.
    You also need to find what is good or bad for you. Get a very balance life… because a autoimmune disease is a very serious and strong disease. Food, sleep, relax, work, exercise, have fun… you need all this but everything needs to be balanced in your life to give your body what he needs without being exhausted.
    You will find out that your body will take months to recouver… but if you start fighting today and change things today… you will have a little relieve every day… until the day you will say, finally this is not so difficult!!
    A stupid this that this disease brings is all the time you find that you have different or a new symptom. That is because the body is trying to find the best way to be healthy and trys to tell you that you need to adjust something that he needs or he don’t like. Try to listen him. With time you will understand him better.
    Everyday be patient with you body, do a deep breath, take a decision, move on, don’t look back!
    One day at the time.
    You can do it!!

    One of the worst parts of this disease is spending an hour reading labels and then getting sick anyway because the major drugstore chains don’t disclose the presence of gluten and the ingredients give no evidence that there is any. What we need is a law that requires companies to disclose the presence of gluten, not one that allows them to say it doesn’t without any testing. I’ve gotten sick from two different store brands of pain reliever recently. Neither had any ingredients that indicated gluten. One claimed gf on the website but not the packaging. I’m sick of trying to guess if something is safe. Our laws are a joke.

    As always, thanks Gluten Dude for your fun and knowledgeable writings.

    Dude is right, eat a balanced diet of real (lightly and mostly unprocessed) foods. Great advice Gluten Dude :)

    After seeing my ND, she told me the same thing as GD. She added that I should be eating 9 cups(before cooking) of veggies at each meal. That’s a LOT of veggies so I spread them out throughout the day, and occasionally fall short of that goal, but it has been very helpful in getting well. It was odd learning to eat things like broccoli and chicken for breakfast, but it sure worked!

    I’d add that eating organic (especially the “dirty dozen”) when possible. The less poison we eat, the healthier we can be :)

    The down and dirty reality: 1. Eat real food you cook yourself. Yes, you will probably have to give up a bunch of other things you’d rather be doing in order to prep and cook (alternate: you can eat the same simple food over and over again). 2. Find a few “emergency” snacks that are naturally gluten free and reasonably packable (e.g., almonds, bananas, an RX bar) so that you aren’t hangry when things go wrong and you can’t find real food. 3. Never eat out again. 4. Learn to smile at people as you say “F. you” when they wax poetically about all the “choice” you have in processed gluten free foods or how they sympathize with the difficulty you have in eating because they’re a vegan.

    That’s basically life with celiac disease.

    Dear GD: just diagnosed with CD and a great friend ordered your not so naked truth about CD. I sat down and started to read … then found it hard to put down.!!!
    This book has made the start of my new journey manageable and far less scary than i was lead to believe.
    My decision from the get go of my diagnosis was … I’m going to do whatever it takes to get back to my norm…. this, in retrospect has enabled me to tackle this crap shoot head on.
    I’m managing, I’m thriving… I’m winning.
    Thank you from the top of my intestines 🤣
