Sesheta added a topic in Gluten-Free Diet & Weight IssuesHelp! Can't Stop Gaining...I was diagnosed with celiac in Feb 2005 and have been gluten free ever since. My problem is that ever since I started the diet I continue to gain weight, I went from 150 to 218. I've begun an exercise routine, tried dieting, and end up missing lunch a lot. Does anyone have any suggestions for healthy recipes or ways to lose weight because I'm getting married in about half a year and I want to look my best. Please help!

Mountain Blast, and our 100% juice products (without added ingredients)
are gluten free.
Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet
Codex's definition of gluten-free, which is currently less than 200 ppm
(parts per million) (0.02%) gluten. Codex is in the process of reviewing
this standard and we are monitoring the progress closely. At this time
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a regulatory
definition of gluten-free.
We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in all these other
products is very low - perhaps even zero. Some minor ingredients in
these products are manufactured from plants that gluten-sensitive people
could react to, so we are unable to state categorically that they are
totally gluten-free even though they may have undetectable levels of
gluten in them. The Codex guideline provides a very low threshold for
gluten content. However, extremely gluten-sensitive individuals should
discuss consumption of these products with their health care provider.
We hope this information is helpful. If you have additional questions
or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
