What have you been eating? What is optimum weight?
According to the charts my optimum weight is 145 lbs. (for a 5í 8í male). Iím now about 148 lbs.
I found that rice helped stabilize my weight. I eat it with every meal. I found that an Asian diet really works well for me. Rice, a little meat, vegetables, and a little fruit. Iím never hungry with this diet, and have plenty of energy. I never fry anything.

Why don't you try to set small goals for yourself. Make it a goal to add one new food a day(or every other day!) to your regular diet. Not only should this help you not get too overwhelmed, but it will also help you recognise if something bothers you. You are a bit on the light side for 5'8", but it doesn't sound like you are skin and bones, yet. You do need to eat a more well rounded diet to get proper nutrition though. Just don't be too hard on yourself and take it slow. It takes our bodies and minds time to get past all of the pain and damage that was done by all the years of gluten. Just take it one day at a time...

To keep myself eating all day, I cook up a bunch of food at once. I cook up a big pot of brown rice and steamed vegetables. I refrigerate the food and eat it all through the day as I get hungry. I add a little meat to the vegetables and rice to balance out the carbohydrates. I also will eat red apples, but two hours after eating a meal. If I eat it right after a meal it will create tons of gas, because the body will digest the sugars first and the other food will just sit there and form gas. Also it is best to eat the sugary vegetables first to avoid gas.

Instead of an apple, have and apple and a bannana. Its a little more for more energy, also, dont eat so low-calorie. Have small snack in the day if you arent exactly hungry. Drink something like juice instead of water, but keep water in your diet!
