I am wondering if many have a problem gaining weight or have recently lost a lot of weight rapidly. I have had a hard time maintaining a proper weight level ever since being diagnosed with Celiac's in 2007. I am about 5'7" and weigh from 105-110lbs, never more. My Doctor said that this is very common in Celiac patients, but it is still very alarming to me. I have always been a string bean (as was my mother, grandmother, father), but recently have noticed people making remarks about my weight constantly and am starting to feel a bit uncomfortable with this. Can anyone give me some advice on how to enhance weight gain or should I just accept that this is how things are? Both would help.

I am actually looking to find out if many of you have had the same problem as I. I have been diagnosed with Celiac's in 2006. Since then it has been near impossible for me to gain much weight. About 2 years ago I succeeded by working out 3 times a week and consuming higher levels of Protein.
