Smoking GNU: Gaylord Fister: fark these people. I hope they die...You do know that the people with the actual legitimate problem that goes with needing gluten free food will quite probably die if they ingest too much gluten, right?
vudukungfu: I was just picking up lunch-meat for my sammiches in the store.Ham, Turkey, roast beef, all labeled Gluten free.Really?
Onkel Buck: If Someone Ever Tells You They Have A Gluten Allergy, Show Them This
rev. dave: I just say low-carb since that is generally accepted as a way to stop being fat.
frankmanhog: Hanson Cheng doesn't pay much attention to the gluten-free haters. Feeling out of shape a couple of years ago, he joined a CrossFit training gym and went on the Paleo Diet, which consists of mostly meat and vegetables.My eyes just rolled out of my skull. Nice of them to close the article with an example of one of the problem idiots.
dready zim: My friend brought his GF round. Either she will die soon or is hypochondriac. She is vegetarian and gluten free and a complete pain in the ass.
ebenbane: I actually hate gluten free fad dieters. They make me seethe with a deep rage.
MindStalker: FTA: Jessie Dankos, a 24-year-old grant-management consultant who lives in Arlington, Va., felt bad for a woman she recently met at a wedding who has such a severe reaction to gluten that she has to check the labels on her shampoo to make sure that it doesn't contain traces of the substance.What? That's not Celiac's which is an inability to digest gluton, either that's a severe allergic reaction to gluton, or this woman is crazy, I'm voting the later.
Nuclear Monk: Fact: labeling something 'gluten free' removes 95% of any potential deliciousness.
Headso: it's odd how many people on fark.com have never met anyone with an actual food allergy and only know people who are faking it, you guys hang out with some weird mofos
DjangoStonereaver: Nuclear Monk: Fact: labeling something 'gluten free' removes 95% of any potential deliciousness.You've never had my mother in law's flourless chocolate cake.It is so good that I have to actively curb myself from eating an entire cake in one sitting because A> thatwould make me feel like the fat pig I am and I don't like that feeling and B> deprive my legitimatelydiagnosed Celiac niece from one of life's truly great pleasures.
Cold_Sassy: If your thing these days is Celiac disease you should really think about: What if I had [any type of] cancer/a brain tumor/lost a limb [or two] in the war and QUIT FARKING WHINING about you so-called ailment.
Delta1212: dready zim: My friend brought his GF round. Either she will die soon or is hypochondriac. She is vegetarian and gluten free and a complete pain in the ass.Hahaha
seancakes: Hector Remarkable: It's not so much what people are eating, it's what is coming out of their ass and how fast it's coming out, and in what manner it's coming out. Of their ass. Very little mention in the article about asses, and how things come out of them, but this is a real reason many people change their diets.You mean like gold pocketwatches? Because I hear those are pretty uncomfortable to have in one's ass.
dready zim: ...Did you know potatoes had gluten? I didn`t. She can`t eat those even because she said they had gluten....
Gaylord Fister: fark these people. I hope they die. I hope there's some kind of famine, and the only thing to eat is a bag of wheat that you get from the government like once per year. (whiny voice) "Uh, excuse me, do you have something gluten free?" Yeah, dirt. Eat farking dirt, you gluten freetard.I'm farking sick that 99.9% of the people have to cater to the whims of retarded farking minorities. You're allergic to peanuts? I don't give a shiat. It's your own farking business. Grow and cook all your own food then.
thisdaydreamer: Czechzican: Later on she'll lament that she is having so many issues losing weight and can't understand why.Ironically, two of my truly celiac friends were diagnosed after losing a dangerous amount of weight. They are both very happy to have gained weight (and therefore not stuck in a program with anorexics).I really want to smack a lot of the gluten-free-because-it's-like-healthy folks. Does your digestive tract do its job? Fantastic. Now shut the hell up and eat the stuff you whine so much about missing. Don't worry. You'll have another fad diet to follow and complain about in a few months, and maybe that one won't be so damn insulting to people with a serious, life-threatening illness.
yeolcoatl: "Within minutes of eating it, my stomach felt really bad and got bloated and crashed my energy. It made me feel just really bad," says Cheng, 33.If you're having a reaction before the gluten can even hit your intestine, yeah that's psychosomatic.
HeartBurnKid: Or did you really think that "roast beef" you were buying was 100% beef?
Pathman: Cold_Sassy: If your thing these days is Celiac disease you should really think about: What if I had [any type of] cancer/a brain tumor/lost a limb [or two] in the war and QUIT FARKING WHINING about you so-called ailment.uh, what if that "so-called ailment" is Celiac disease?
Cold_Sassy: I eat pizza all the time. It is my favorite food. Of course, I have never claimed I had Celiac disease. Why is spellchecker tagging Celiac as a typo?
dready zim: One more thing, the diet I propose has no `banned` foods, you can eat anything you like but if you mix carbs and fat, protein and salt, or fat and salt you will need to regulate your calories (portion size) consciously as your body will not regulate them by itself so you *will* want to overeat.Either eat them mindfully, sparingly or avoid them.
TheGogmagog: I suspect a major contributing factor to obesity is because wheat is such a staple in every meal.
Slives: dready zim: ...Did you know potatoes had gluten? I didn`t. She can`t eat those even because she said they had gluten....I hope that is you being sarcastic and don't actually believe that potatoes have gluten...
dready zim: rev. dave: I just say low-carb since that is generally accepted as a way to stop being fat.Ah, a mono dietist. They never work. You always slip back into mixing your macro nutrients then your regulation mechanism falls down and you get fat again. Your diet is just a brute force way of avoiding a fat/carb mix by removing carbs.Also I don`t have the `atkins` smell, my energy levels are great, and I`m not consuming my muscle to get carbs...I should go to the gym a bit more, I`m untoned through just sitting about. At least I`m not getting fat, hehe.
bearcats1983: I'm an event manager for a medium sized company, dealing with everyone's "diet restrictions" can be a huge pain in the ass. Look, there's no way a third of the room is gluten free, vegan or both (somehow...). I'm empathetic if you have a medical issue and will get sick. To make people accommodate your fad diet of the week is really annoying though.
TheGogmagog: One person chooses a gluten free food and everyone builds this straw-man image of that person being a douche to waiters for no reason.
jehovahs witness protection: 90% of the "gluten free" crowd actually have no idea what gluten really is.Just ask them.
wren337: Onkel Buck: If Someone Ever Tells You They Have A Gluten Allergy, Show Them ThisMy good friends 10 year old was diagnosed by an actual doctor with celiac. They went to Fridays which has a large, prominent gluten free menu. He was served a burger with a regular bun, ate half and then projectile vomited all over the place.
vudukungfu: TheGogmagog: One person chooses a gluten free food and everyone builds this straw-man image of that person being a douche to waiters for no reason.Most people are douches to waiters,except ex kitchen staffers.
