Has anyone sucessfully joined Weight Watchers, and do you find it difficult to be on their plan for weight loss? I know there will be substitutions made if I joined and used their recipes. i was just wondering what diet plans have worked for other celiac disease people. Suggestions???

I just joined today! LOL!

But I know of people who have used WW, and I know that it is easily changed to a gluten-free diet. Because you don't use WW food anyway on most of the meal planning. You use a point system in which you can eat whatever you want - just in small portions and in a point system.

I feel so lonely being one of the very few Celiacs with a weight problem. LOL. I have been on the other side of the spectrum too however, and that isn't fun either. So, hopefully WW will help me get back to a normal weight.

Going gluten-free and quitting smoking in the same year has been a bit rough on my weight. Now that I am smoke free for over a year and gluten-free for almost ten months, it's time for me to try and work on even more discilipline - so here goes nothing.

WW has worked MIRACLES for a couple of people I know, so good luck! I will be tagging along on my own WW goal. :)

Hi Spruette!

It's wonderful to know you are not alone in this. My sister who does not have celiac disease joined WW months ago, and has lost over 20 lbs and still going. She is the reason I really decided I should join too, because I can change my diet- I did it for this disease, now I just need to change the way I eat all the time for the rest of my life to have a healthy weight again. Lifestyle changes are never easy!

GOOD LUCK to you!! :D

The WW core plan is perfect for the gluten-free diet. All persons that have to eat gluten-free that are considering doing some kind of diet plan should seriously think abou the WW core plan. It offers plenty of options, most of them gluten-free anyway. I have belonged to WW most of it before I discovered I was gluten intolerant-lost the most (60# on the points program, all that was offered at the time). I am now doing the core plan on my own and not going to meetings because I live in a remote area and they are difficult to get to. The meetings offer support especially when you are getting going with WWatchers. I would encourage it. Barbara
