I am 26 years old, 5'6'', and 160 pounds. I was diagnosed as a Celiac 2-3 months ago via blood test AND endoscopy.
I have been gluten free for about 2 months now - and I cannot stop gaining weight!
I've read many posts on this site telling people to watch out for the gluten-free substitutes for bread, pasta, etc. Well - I don't eat those except maybe once or twice a week for one meal that day even.
I eat very clean - this is what I ate today: (hopefully you can see it)

95 grams carbs
50 grams fat
156 grams protein
25 grams fiber
I eat very clean (above is a typical day) - I love veggies, clean proteins, and love to cook my own meals from scratch.
I have gained 10-15 pounds in the last two months. Exercising 3-4 times a week (weights) and a very active weekend chasing after my nephews.
I have no idea what is going on!
