In Topic: Eating gluten-free And Gaining Weight

16 August 2012 - 05:33 AM

I gained a pile of weight after going gluten-free because suddenly I started absorbing everything I had never absorbed before yet I was still eating like I had eaten for 46 years. This is not unusual at all, particularly if you're eating those high-calorie wheat substitutes. My total cholesterol also went from an unusually low 120 to about 200 (although it is back down to 160).

Thanks Richard, I did read somewhere here that if you can't cook it, don't eat it. Guess that's a good rule, although, I can cook a muffin if I have too! :)

I have been gluten free for a few years now. I too have put on weight since being diagnosed. I went untreated for a long time, actually ended up with osteoporosis. I have never really had an issue with weight before. It sucks that when there are so many things you can't eat any more and you gain weight. Very frustrating. I am wondering if anyone has any diet ideas. I eat very little and try to eat fairly healthy. I also have thyroid disease... thanks :)
