  1. I'm 26 years old and I was diagnosed a month ago. I went gluten free the minute I fould out I had Celiac Disease and have been very careful what I eat and I read every label (I have been accidentally been glutened 2 times since diagnosis). What I am struggling with is when I will see and feel results from my diet change.  I am the Celiac who has suffered from gradual weight gain over the years, itchy scalp and body, debilitating stomach cramps and joint pain, extreme fatigue, and many other quentessential Celiac symptoms. I have struggled over the last couple years trying to figure out why I have been gaining weight with the inability to lose it and it has been emotionally and physically draining.   With all that said, my older sister has been gluten/lactose free for a year now and has dropped close to 30lbs by just going gluten/lactose free. I see her results and I am excited to have the same for myself in a year. I have seen small changes in myself such as less brain fog (I always thought I was just scatter-brained!), reduced swelling in my abdomen and face, and a slight change in energy levels.  For those of you who are the overweight Celiacs, when did you notice your weight began to decrease? I have lost 5lbs, but I'm guessing that is just water weight and reduced swelling.  When my digestive system begins to repair, will it start to work more efficiently to help me lose weight?  Since my energy levels are still low, it's hard to do workouts without completely draining myself of my sacred energy reserves.   I would love to hear your stories and when you all began to see your weight loss results as well as when you started to feel better! Also I would love to hear some remedies incase I accidentally get "glutened", and how to speed up my results to be a healthier me.   Thank you in advance!   Katie
