When To Be Worried About Weight Lose
0

5 posts in this topic

November 2nd my Dr told me he thought I might have Celiac Disease. He told me to go Gluten free for a month and see how I felt. I felt great. Since then I've realized I'm definitely Celiac. During this time I've lost all the weight I had mysteriously gained before eliminating gluten. In November I was 173 pounds and now I'm 127. 127 is fine. I have been as low as 117 at which time everyone worried about me. Well now I'm thinking I need to eliminate a lot more food from my diet because May was a bad month for me and I know I'm doing something wrong. Friends here suggest eliminating processed foods. I'm not a cook and I'm not financially well off so if I eliminate all or most processed foods my eating options will be drastically reduced. I suspect I'll lose a lot more weight. At what point do I worry about this?

(I know technically cooked food is processed but I think my friends here mean processed before it gets to me.)

PS I don't like to eat meat, I'm in the process of going Vegetarian. I'm also Lactose intolerant so I can't have dairy.

Can you tolerate legumes ?? They are great source of vegetarian protein , carbs and a good source of calories.

So far as I can tell, yes. :) I eat quite a few legumes. Thank you for the link. It all sounds great right now.

I would suggest that you be super diligent at watching your calories consumed . I did an elimination diet the beginning of the year and dropped 20 pounds in 6 weeks.

legumes are inexpensive and quick ( I buy the already cooked,canned ones but dried are even cheaper) and have a fairly high calorie count.

I can't afford to lose 20 pounds. My Dr doesn't want me to lose more than one more pound. I think I could lose as much as 7 and still be okay, after that though I'm going to be looking really sickly. Right, so watch the calories and keep eating beans.

Tonight I had wild rice and navy beans. It tasted great. :)
