How much weight have you gained after on gluten-free diet?

Recommended Posts

Within 1-2 years after going on a gluten-free diet, how much weight have you gained if you had undiganosed celiac disease with damage done to your intestines?

I gained 20 lbs.

There are so many questions and so many answers to this!  

Were you underweight to start with?  You body may be healing and starting to process all the nutrients which mean you finally start to gain.  Are you closer to achieving your ideal weight?

Were you overweight to start with and are you now gaining more?  Are you now eating a lot of processed gluten free food products.  If so, they are full of fats & sugars which can help you to gain.  (this could also be the cause of gain even if you were under weight)

Are you gainig too much?  Is this an issue? 

I lost big time when I got sick, gained a lot back afyter I started eating again and just this last year or so have reached a ok weight.
