Xhale1227 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsConstantly Hungry- Never FullI took an allergy test and it said I had gluten sensitivity. Pretty sure I don't have celiac disease. My doc said he wanted me to give up gluten for a few months and see how I feel. I am on week 4 and my digestive system is feeling much better. However I am still very bloated, which I hope improves with time. My main concern though is my hunger. I have put on 5 pounds in the last few weeks, and if I ate when I was truly hungry, it would be 10 pounds. I am starving 24/7. I'm eating MORE calories now than I did when I ate gluten, and yet still my hunger is ravenous. Before this diet change, I would have to force myself to eat.... Now I eat as if I am going into hibernation every day. It is ridiculous. I just had 2 cups of oats, a peanut butter protein bar, half an avocado, fruit, protein shake, and 2 eggs for breakfast. No joke. I am now an hour later.... starving. Why is this happening? I am tempted to just quit, I don't want to gain weight.
