Losing Weight After 6 Months Of Being gluten-free
0

6 posts in this topic

I'm curious to know when you started gaining weight? I have been gluten free for more than 6 months and I just recently had normal antibody levels too. But, I'm still not gaining weight and having a tough time managing my weight.

I'm dairy free. I eat until I'm full, eat 3 meals, 2 snacks and some fruit everyday. Thanks for your help. :)

What do you eat? Do you consume fats, dense calorie foods, and desserts with lunch and dinner? Do you snack on nuts? Do you still have reaction symptoms, which could suggest other allergies?

I was diagnosed with Celiac almost 5 years ago and one of my main symptoms was wieght loss and I also continued to lose wieght after eating completely gluten free. In fact, I was hospitalized 5 months after my diagnosis because I had lost so much even though I was eating a ton. The doctors said it just takes time for your small intestine to heal and start being able to absorb nutrients again. I didn't start gaining anything back until almost 8 months after being diagnosed. So, I know that's not very nice sounding, but sometimes it just takes longer for your body to heal.

are you eating lots of raw nuts/seeds, vegetable oils, whole grains? Those things contain antinutrients which will mess with digestion and thyroid

Have you actually counter the calories you're eating? Many vegetables are extremely low in calories, so you could, say, eat a giant salad but still only get 200, 250 calories. Have you had your blood sugars measured at all? Weight loss despite eating a ton is a symptom of diabetes.
