Hello all! I'm gluten intolerant, being tested for celiac this week. Ever since I went gluten free a couple of months ago, most of my gluten related issues have cleared up. Before I went gluten free, I would eat and eat and eat and eat and I would NEVER feel full. I know this is a symptom some people have when they're gluten sensitive but now that I don't eat gluten my appetite has decreased dramatically. I can literally have two scrambled eggs w/ veggies in the morning and be full until dinner time. At dinner time I can eat a simple salad and ill be fine. Is this normal or is there something else wrong with me now?

Just an FYI. For best results, you should be eating gluten for Celiac tests. If they are negative, that may not mean you do not have Celiac, it just means you are gluten free and not producing the antibodies that the presence of gluten causes..

I think that is part of celiac. I always knew I ate a lot more than others without seeming to pack on weight. I thought I had a "fast" metabolism. I was terrified of putting on fifty pounds once I went off gluten and started to absorb but I think what feels like "no appetite" to us is actually normal appetite, meaning not constantly starving and shoving cookies in our faces.

ditto about being on gluten for the testing.

At this point in time, it'll probably do ya no good.

I have no appitite whatsoever most of the time, so eating is me forcing myself to do so.

My appetite is way down too. It fell off at about 3 months into the diet. I don't even bother with a full size dinner plate now, I just use a salad plate.

And ditto the others on the testing; if you are gluten-free you will probably test negative because your body will stop producing the autoantibodies. Intestinal damage may still be evident in a biopsy though.

Best of luck. :)

I was glad at first that my appetite was slack. It comes back now and then. Get ready for that.

I had the same. I could eat staggering amounts of food and still be hungry. Having an empty stomach would make me so crazy. Now I eat bot nearly as much and Im satisfied.
