    I'm only 15 and I'm already neurotic per feeding (TOC) I lost almost all my friends because I'm afraid to eat out, afraid of where gluten can hide, I'm not celiac, gluten fear most by the time say he stays in the body .... not like pasta more afraid of cross-contamination or a steak seasoning ... thoughts? Thanks!

    You should see a therapist. It sounds like the beginning of an unhealthy relationship with food, and at your age you should be out and having fun with friends, not obsessing about what you eat if you don't have a health problem concerning gluten and other food allergies.

    You started a thread on this same topic (fear of gluten that is impacting your life) a month ago. You really should do something about it. I can't eat gluten at all, but I don't let it affect my life.

    I'm celiac and if you decide to live this way by choice you are not right in the head. It sucks and is awful to constantly have to live in fear of contamination. Why you would do that when you won't be harmed by it is beyond me.

    I was fat as a kid too, and I eventually learned balance was the key. Being so careful will make it far worse if you ever fall off the wagon. Learn to eat ONE small roll. Two little squares of chocolate. If you practice moderation you will be able to relax. That's what happened for me. I still eat too much chocolate sometimes, but I am far better off than I used to be.

    Traces of gluten will not make you fat or gain water weight. Just eliminate the visible sources like pasta, pizza, cookies, cake and bread and eat meat, vegetables and some fruit in stead and other primal food. If you are not a celiac you should be fine
    At you age also add some potatoes or white rice, you don't need it every day but it is ok to eat it when you are with friends or when you exercise.

    Don't let your friends be stronger than you. And don't take people so seriously. The friendships you have right now will all disappear into thin air very soon. Just laugh and tell them they can eat what they want, just like you.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
