Celiac Weight Loss Group?

Recommended Posts

with all of the food issues we have, joining something like weight watchers isn't always an option. i was wondering if anyone would be interested in being part of an online celiac weight loss group? we could share diets/recipes, talk about frustrations, and encourage each other.

what do you think?

Excellent idea!! Count me in! I have been using Weight Watchers, but it just doen't meet my dietary needs. Everyone recommends whole wheat things, and just don't understand when I say I can't have them. Our breads and pastas are so much higher in calories than wheat, so it is easy for me to get fatter than I am!

Can we start a thread that is just weight loss and accountability? One with just tips and menus and weigh-ins? I would want to include tape measure results, because I lose inches before I lose pounds! Maybe even just keep it on this thread, and anyone interested can post to it.

OK, yesterday I blew it. I think my Honeycombs have a cross-contamination issue. I could feel the reaction less than an hour after eating them. I can eat plain oatmeal without a problem, so I know it's not the oats in it.

I also just plain ate too much Easter candy!

breakfast: 1 bowl Honeycomb cereal, 3/4 c whole milk

lunch: grilled beefsteak, french fries (homemade), pear

dinner: hamburger patty w/veggies on top

snack: 1 whole box chocolate cherries, 1 caramel egg

bedtime: an apple

The daytime snacks got me. I will have to do better today! :rolleyes:

I cannot have gluten, eggs, poultry, strawberries, anything from the peach family, and tree nuts. I am so happy to be able to have dairy!

Monday:

breakfast and lunch: lean beef steak and fries

dinner: lean beef steak, mahed potatoes, peas

snacks: apple, cheese cubes, potato chips

I was at a church function serving snacks, and the only thing I could have was potato chips and cheese cubes. I looked at all of the homemade goodies the other ladies had brought, and thought how the misery was just worth even one taste. I will just have to make sure that I take something that I can have, so I joined the fellowship committee. It is my responsibility to take care of myself!

So much for spelling! That is "mashed potatoes" and "the misery was just NOT worth even one taste". One of these days, I might be perfect....NNOTTT!! :D

    CB, sorry to hear you're still having problems.  Deficiency of Vitamin B12 can cause diarrhea.  It's a frequently overlooked symptom.  Did you discuss with your doctor what to do about the B12 deficiency? Shots or oral supplements?  ...
    I think you should consider getting tested for celiac disease in order to help rule out gluten ataxia.  Why?  I just had anemia.  No GI issues with gluten.  I never would have guessed that I had celiac disease.
