In Topic: Cant Gain Weight?

17 June 2007 - 03:16 PM

I have lost 15lbs in the past 4 months since going gluten free. I probably consume about 2500 calories a day. I used to be at 150lbs and not fat, but had a little extra fat in the midsection. Now i am 135lbs and i am 5'6" male. I am not losing strength, but i am very lean now. I want to gain like 10 lbs of muscle, but can't. I dont have any malabsorption issues, so i dont see why i cant gain. Any ideas?


What Tom said. I was in the mid 150s and dropped to the mid 130s prior to diagnosis. Clawed my way back to mid 140 and then had a setback this spring...back to 137. Over the past 2 months I've gotten back to 147, but it takes constant focus on calorie intake. 2500 wouldn't cut it for me. I make sure I have a solid breakfast, snacks during the day, an early dinner, and then a late dinner with the family. Snacks again at night. One thing that I think has helped me significantly is that I've increased my activity level. Joined a gym and have been doing some strength training. What's coming back is muscle...mostly. But it has really revved up my appetite making the eating a lot easier.

It just takes work.

In Topic: Gluten Free Breakfast Cereal & Chocolate In The Us

31 March 2007 - 11:06 PM

Hi there,

I'm from the UK & we are visiting WDW in May (which appears to be coeliac heaven!).

Just wondered if anyone could recommend some gluten-free breakfast cereal for an adult which isn't too sweet & is relatively healthy - can you get a gluten-free porridge (oatmeal?).

Also I'm a bit of a chocoholic & would love to know of some great chocolate that I can snack on.

And finally ....... does anyone know the nearest store to get Redbridge beer please? We're staying in a villa near Formosa Gardens (highway 192 - is the area Kissimmee?). The gluten-free beer & lager here leaves a lot to be desired, & I'm looking forward to trying Redbridge, as it's not available in the UK.

Thanks for your help

Kate


Can't help you with a specific store for Redbridge. However it is a Budweiser product and should be available at any good liquor store. I've also heard it is available at Wal-mart.

It's only been three weeks on the diet, try not to over-react. As others have said (and I've experienced), your body will do strange things at this stage.

Today I woke up really tired, and in the bathroom again! I was fine last night, so I guess my question is if I ate something wouldn't I have reacted sooner than this morning? Also, if I did I can't figure out what it was! I have been really carefull, if I continue to be so carefull and this keeps happening, its going to drive me batty! Am I just detoxing or still symptomatic because I just started on the 15th or so?


I'm new to this too. Diagnosed and gluten free in early July. Everyone has different recovery times. I've heard everything from 3 months to 2 years. What I can tell you is after only two weeks, you're still on the roller coaster.

Mostly at this point, I'm just curious. I find the autoimmune reaction interesting.

As far as my diet goes, I think 7 weeks gluten-free is too soon to start tinkering with other things. I do feel better. It's just the bad days seem to happen without a cause. Which because of my personality drives me a little batty.

If I'm not damaging my insides, I'm willing to give gluten-free at least 6 months to stabilize.
