I travel, I sit on my bum and write day and night and I do all the things I am supposed to do, I think. Just between you and me there are times that I KNOW I just am not getting enough fiber in the good old GF diet, if you know what I mean!
I have tried the Oats that are from dedicated facilities and I am one of those that do not do well with oats despite all the literature I have read, researched and tried. I get aches and stomach troubles.
I am thrilled for those that do tolerate the oats. I sure wish I could as I long for those days with my hot oat meal in the morning, with melted butter all over the top, and I mean all over the top. My spoon had to dive through the melted butter to even get to the oats. Yes, I love butter, coconut oil etc.
Anyhow, being on a GF diet has it care and concerns for the actual dieter, and this does need to be looked at. The grains we are allowed to have for the most part are not too terribly loaded with fiber, in fact they can be rather binding. They do not help the intestinal tract to move, which is called peristalsis. This moves the food through the colon into the rectum.
We need to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables yet when one is healing still form a newly diagnosis of gluten intolerance or celiac disease, our small intestinal lining is sensitive and needs to heal. The unfortunate part of this diagnosis is that often there are other effects in or on the body form the years of not being diagnosed correctly. Hence you nay have a terribly sensitive tummy, irritated bowels, aches in the joints, skin troubles etc. Some other foods may cause irritation and even an increase in vegetables and fruits may irritate your body somehow.
Be sure to work with someone who understands your diagnosis that you feel comfortable with and trust and the healing process can take place a bit smoother.
Just do not go out and load up on a bunch of GF baked goods and expect to feel better overnight. The fiber content of most of the GF baked goods on market do not have much fiber and can cause you to be a bit constipated.
