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?
ebenbane: I actually hate gluten free fad dieters. They make me seethe with a deep rage.

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
Fibro: 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.I don't get your post. Are you jealous that this guy has the physical prowess to Crossfit and the discipline to eat a consistently clean diet, and you do not? Where's the hate coming from?I Crossfit regularly and eat 85-90% paleo and life is good; definitely way better than before.On the topic of gluten-free, I eat mostly gluten-free as it is just by nature of the paleo diet. Just because you can put something in your body, digest, and expel it doesn't mean you should.
Muta: I think people like these special diets because it makes them stand out. Everyone has to accommodate their needs so they get the trump card when selecting a restaurant. It gives them power over the group.
ongbok: Robo Beat: I've known exactly one person in my life who had celiac disease, back in college. When the rest of us were cutting our binge-drinking teeth on watery Natty Light at keg parties, she would carry around her own personal bottle of tequila, or sometimes rum. That girl was one hard-drinkin' Lincoln.Last I heard, she's a nun. Ironically, the sisters at her convent run a bakery that produces nothing but communion wafers, which are basically just pressed wheatpaste.Talk about penance.
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.
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.
Onkel Buck: If Someone Ever Tells You They Have A Gluten Allergy, Show Them This
Nuclear Monk: Fact: labeling something 'gluten free' removes 95% of any potential deliciousness.

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.

Lenny_da_Hog: But when the "WOW! GLUTEN FREE!" label is a two-color yellow-and-red star that takes up 1/3 of the front of the package, you can be pretty sure it's there for marketing. A crapload of products that never contained gluten have been getting these labels over the last year or two just to appeal to the trend.
tartcake: I have diagnosed IBS and I have to say I do feel for people who truly have digestive issues. It is horrible and embarrassing. A long long time ago in a galaxy far away, I went on a date with this nice guy. It was our third date I think. We had stuffed crust pizza which was a new thing at the time. (I had an onion on my belt.) After we got to his apartment, I was horrified to realize: 1. my GI tract did not like fact I had just ingested so much cheese, 2. his bathroom had no windows or air freshener, and 3. the walls were very very thin. It was absolutely mortifying. I mean honestly I think the fart concert rendered him speechless for like five minutes while all I could is apologize profusely and feel bad because he was going to have to repaint his bathroom. (God, undigested cheese stinks to holy hell.) Honestly, I can't believe he later married me.
Robo Beat: Maybe he's into that sort of thing.
Robo Beat: tartcake: Honestly, I can't believe he later married me.
Egoy3k: Why is everybody so invested in what other people eat. If they have highly restricted diets then they need to understand that accommodating them will be difficult for others and have some patience with them. Likewise everybody else needs to relax about what other people are eating because it's none of our business what goes into someone else's mouth.

rev. dave: FTFA, "In the '50s, everyone had ulcers," he says. "Then, it was back problems. Now, it's gluten."Well people still have stomach problems now known as GERD, and back problems never went away, just fewer surgeries and fewer bad backs from less manual labor. Bad examples.A few people don't eat gluten, most are trying to find out if they have food allergies or intolerance.I just say low-carb since that is generally accepted as a way to stop being fat.
China White Tea: Egoy3k: Why is everybody so invested in what other people eatBecause idiots adhering to nonsensical fad diets are physically incapable of shutting the fark up about their new diet-slash-magic-health-bullet. Ideally, I would never have to hear about this UH-MAZING! gluten-free diet from someone who has never even heard of celiac, but we don't live in that world, so the consolation prize is mocking them for their idiocy.
CeroX: So they process the shiat out of if, make it into small particles, ad some flour and some other shiat to turn it into a paste that they can put into a form before they cook it, then after they can stick it in a machine to slice and package.
CeroX: It's probably not that hard for them to find a corn substitute as a binder.
czetie: I used to think I was lactose intolerant, but it turned out I'm intolerant of pretty much everything.
thisdaydreamer: nunyadang: I still think you are fatDoes my being overweight make you feel better? Fine. I'm fat. Go to town with that.Now go to bed and let the adults talk.
Muta: Helicobacter pylori. It is well known that H. Pylori can cause ulcers, but researchers are finding that there is an increase in asthma where H. Pylori has been eradicated. There is also evidence that its eradication is related to increased obesity.
thisdaydreamer: hej: nunyadang: hej: thisdaydreamer: I really want to smack a lot of the gluten-free-because-it's-like-healthy folks.I really want to know how other people choosing not to eat something is a problem for you.Because he is a fat farkerThen I would think he'd be happy that there's more food left for him.Aw. You guys are so cute. I knew you'd come along eventually.Let me explain it to you. People with celiac disease have to severely restrict what they eat. People who hop on the gluten-is-evil bandwagon make everyone who truly has to avoid gluten look like a trendy dieter rather than a person with a serious illness, which convinces food companies and servers to ignore anyone looking for gluten-free food. Hence, folks with celiac are in more danger (and, yes, celiac disease can be deadly) while the trendy dieters get to keep thinking that they are ssssoooooo much healthier for dumping gluten.There's also the arrogance of declaring your diet to be as important as someone who must restrict themselves or land in the hospital.I am neither celiac nor gluten free. I just really hate what my friends are going through because of the latest nutritional fad.

vudukungfu: HeartBurnKid: Or did you really think that "roast beef" you were buying was 100% beef?I watched him slice it off the top round.Cooked on premises.I'm a bit picky.that's why I'm single
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.
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.
vudukungfu: I was just picking up lunch-meat for my sammiches in the store.Ham, Turkey, roast beef, all labeled Gluten free.Really?
