Celiac causes fat Intolerance? Dr Davis says eat fat!?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am not full blown celiac, although it is in my family, but definately gluten intolerant. Every once in a while I have to remind myself. Like Sunday night when I had spaghetti. Just getting over the 'brain fog' and nausea now! 

I  read Wheat Belly Total Health and now I am really confused. He seems to have veered off track, and has morphed into a low carb advocate. He says ALL grains are bad, and to lose weight eliminate carbs and eat more fat. Isn't fat intolerance one of the digestive side effects of Celiac, caused by the gluten damage to the intestines? 

I tried a low fat (gluten free of course) diet for six months, and didnt lose much weight, but felt real good digestion wise. I switched to the  Total Health  approach, GAINED WEIGHT, had to quit-all that fat is too hard to stomach, and no carbs except potatoes? The other grains that he villifies, like rice and couscous, have never given me any problems.

 Now I am back to a gluten free low calorie approach, and making progress. 

Any thoughts appreciated!

I have celiac disease and I have no fat intolerances and I do not even have a gallbladder!  Everyone is different.  A gluten free diet or even a low carb high fat diet is not going to cause you to lose weight.  A calories is a calorie!  I think the diet you are talking about allows you "unlimited" amounts of certain foods.  I think they are banking on the  fact that you should feel full sooner.  But the reality is people eat for all kinds of reasons.  Some do not have that "I am full" mechanism.  

I am on a LCHF diet because my meter is happiest!  I would also like to prevent diabetic complications.  I think you made a typo as potatoes are never on a LCHF diet!  I have a bite or two but any more and my glucose goes up.  The same applies for any legume or grain.  

Glad that you are making progress.

Couscous is NOT a grain. It is PASTA! It is not gluten-free!


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!
