* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Allergic to Wheat!!!
« on: December 04, 2018, 04:57:41 pm »
Okay, I developed swelling in my legs and had no idea why.  I have eaten low-carb to manage my weight off and on for years.  I was having dental work and it was hard to eat meat and veggies for a year so there was a lot of wheat in my diet.  I did not want to go carb free or rather grain free again, so I continued to have bouts of swelling for 3 years. 

In the end I was swollen all over like a giant stuffed sausage and had gained tons of weight.  Turns out I was allergic to bleached wheat the very most and a little to unbleached wheat as well.  I can still eat occasional small amounts of unbleached wheat. 

I lost about 10 to 15 pounds of swelling and water when I removed wheat.  I thought my problem was all refined carbs and starches, sugar, rice, potatoes.  The real reason my low-carb diet was working so well was the wheat was gone. 

I can still have a Monster Java.  I can have a wheat free cookie made with gluten-free flour containing rice and potatoes and my weight is still correcting. 

The most horrible thing is while I was sick, I lost all sex drive. I thought I was on meds, old and that was just over.  When I got well, it came back!  Granted then I had to correct some problems, but still it was a shock that the wheat allergy caused that.

Also, not eating wheat isn't so bad compared to a strict low-carb diet.  I can use the gluten-free flours and make myself just about anything.  Since I am lazy, I do eat low-carb a lot, tuna salad, turkey patty, veggies that are quick to make. Eggs, lots of eggs.  Cheese.

It is a diet I can live with a lot easier with than a strict low-carb diet.  But before you go out and cut all the carbs, just cut wheat and see what happens.

Thanks for sharing that, it's something to think about.
