Hello,

I seem to lose weight too!! I lost about 10.5 kilos (about 23 :P lbs) in about 4 months... Too much huh? :huh: I don't even know if it is usual because I am still losing more and more weight! So I seem to share my problem with others! :P

Before I was diag. I lost around 35 lbs.
Now I've gained back 8-10 lbs but I'm having a hard time keeping it on.
I'm not under weight or starving just a lot smaller in stature than before.I've even been lifting weights and my strength in almost where it was before I got really sick but my weight doesn't move.

i've always had that same problem too...always worked out hard and just got really strong, but my body never got anywhere...i always thought that it was my metabolism was too fast, but now i kow that its b/c i have celiac disease.

For about the first 9 months after going gluten-free, I slowly lost weight. Not much, maybe 5 - 10 lbs. My doctor was very concerned about this and ran all the tests for small bowel lymphoma. Fortunately, the tests were negative, and now I am slowly gaining.

I don't mean to be an alarmist, but you should follow through with your gastroenterologist. It could be serious and you want to catch that early. If you're ok, then maybe you can be referred to a nutrionist to address the issue from a dietary standpoint.

Also, keep in mind that the gluten-free diet is very similar to the low carb diet that is all the craze right now for losing weight!

I have hit a plateau myself and would like to lose another ten lbs. I am not sure that it is possible though. I would be happy to take suggestions on how.

Sorry for the confusion about the carbs, Eddie. You're right, rice has lots 'O carbs, but they are considered "good" carbs - kinda like the "good" cholesterol!

My reference was that the success behind diets like Atkins, is the almost complete elimination of "bad" carbs like white bread - which we do too! :D

yea i know wat u mean now...i asked my girlfriend who's a student nurse and she told me the same thing...= )
i started again to take Nitro Tech, itz a protein supplement for weight gaining for people who work out...i read the ingredients throughly and none of it has anything that contains gluten...so i'm hoping that with me workin out and takin this stuff will help me to gain some weight, and of course get a nicer body..= )

Good luck on your workouts and weight gaining! I'm 45 and have been thin all my life (well, thin compared to most Americans!!!). Many years ago, I worked out pretty regular, but never gained any weight. Of course, that was before I was on the diet. Now I'm too old, too lazy, and too indiferent to care! :P

Rice might be considered a good carb, but if you eat any of the gluten-free breads, cakes, cookies, and other goodies then you certainly couldn't call those good carbs or low carb!

Despite the fact that I do eat gluten-free rice bread a couple of times a week and the same for the gluten-free sweets, I have lost 20 lbs in the last 8 months! :D I have 30 lbs more to go to be in the high end of my ideal weight range, and then I will be so happy. This is the first time I have lost weight eating whatever I want (ie: not counting calories, carbs, fat grams, etc!) in the past 10 years! It seems my body just wasn't healthy enough to want to let go of any of the food I WAS able to digest, so it turned it all into fat. Now I am absorbing properly I can loose the extra weight now.

I do feel bad for those of you who do NOT want to lose any more weight. I would suggest either checking your diet to make sure that you are not accidently getting gluten in that would cause you to keep loosing weight (like before going gluten-free), or else maybe add in some more calories to your diet. Healthy choices are always the best when adding more calories, nuts are good, since they add calories, protein and healthy fat to your diet.

God bless,
Mariann
