Yes I know the 13th came and went and I thought about it all day. I wanted to eat that Ding Dong so bad but I didn't. I have been doing so good, why should I ruin my progress? I have been reading the Stephenie Meyer series "twilight" and I remind myself that I too am try to prefer a new diet. Edward (the vampire) does not hunt humans, he hunts animals to drink their blood. I see how he has to go without and the feelings he has and I can relate (although I am not a vampire I feel his anger and temptation). I really thirst or hunger for gluten but can not cross the line to fulfill that hunger or thirst. Call me stupid or whatever you want. This book is helping me get through my newborn days as an anti-glutite (if read the series you would understand). I have to thank Stephenie for writing such a wonderful series. This is the first book I have read since the Harry Potter first book (I didn't read the rest because they were boring). Her books are definitely not boring if you like vampire stuff! I LOVE THESE BOOKS! I cant wait till the 4th book arrives at my door!!!
What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is a disease of the small intestine. The small intestine is a 22 foot long tube that begins at the stomach and ends at the large intestine (colon). The first 1-1/2 feet of the small intestine (the part that is attached to the stomach) is called the duodenum, the middle part is called the jejunum, and the last part (the part that is attached to the colon) is called the ileum. Food empties from the stomach into the small intestine where it is digested and absorbed into the body. While food is being digested and absorbed, it is transported by the small intestine to the colon. What enters the colon is primarily undigested food. In celiac disease, there is an immunological (allergic) reaction within the inner lining of the small intestine to (gluten) that are present in wheat, rye, barley and, to a lesser extent, in oats. The immunological reaction causes inflammation that destroys the lining of the small intestine. This reduces the absorption of dietary nutrients and can lead to symptoms and signs of nutritional, vitamin, and mineral deficiencies.
