smallquiltpieces added a topic in Gluten-Free Diet & Weight IssuesFast Weight Lossafter having 2 bowls of pasta one night and not being able to get out of bed the next day due to fatigue, I googled gluten free. Out of the online test I took I realized that it might be the problem(s) behind my constant dark circles, borderline anemia, IBS and constipation, asthma, allegies to 30 different food/ environment items, and the list went on. That day I decided to start a gluten free life.
I've done well avoiding all things gluten with the exception of having half a burger bun ( which made me hit the sack for a 5 hour nap). In fact I can't believe how full I get on plates of fruits, vegetables and cheeses.
My DH is worried because in a weeks time I've lost 12 pounds. I feel better, my asthma is not as bad, I have a little more energy but still needing a nap ( i contribute it to my age and several critters in bed!), though not as long. The weird thing was day 5 I felt crampy and full but that seems to have passed. I still have days where I can't eat because i have a horrible full feeling. Should I be worried over the weight loss and full feeling?
I'm hoping it helps my asthma induced allergy to MSG. I try to avoid it as much as possible.
