    1. starfiremyst added a topic in Gluten-Free Diet & Weight Issues   

      I've read most of the posts in this section and was concerned that most people seem to have gained weight since going gluten-free. I'm already rather overweight and the last thing I need is more poundage.

      Oddly enough, I began about a week ago and have noticed that I am eating much less overall.

      I have suspected (for some time) that eating flour based products caused me to crave more of the same (and indeed, feel like a bottomless pit). Since going "cold turkey" on these products, I've been eating mostly meat, fruits, and vegetables. The gluten-free breads don't really cause me to want more like the regular stuff does. One slice of them seems to really fill me up.

      If anything, with all the fiber in the fruits and veggies, I am averaging about 1,200 calories a day or less and feel more stuffed than I was eating thousands more containing wheat.

      I weighed myself this morning and have lost 3 lbs. Just in case it's a fluctuation in fluids, I am not going to get too hopeful yet.

      Did anybody besides me have out of control cravings for wheat products before you went gluten-free? And then when you began going gluten-free ended up eating very small amounts because you're full?
