Gluten and inability to lose weight?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found that ditching the gluten helped speed up weight loss, combined with calories restriction and exercise? The info I am finding says that gluten inflames the intestines which can contribute to obesity. Also gluten containing carbs are a problem for some. Thanks!

Problem is if you eat processed gluten free foods you will gain weight.  Eat clean (meats, fish, veggies, fruit, and limited gluten-free carbs such as potatos) and exercise and you will lose weight.

I actually gained weight after going gluten free, and I eat little to no processed food.  But prior to diagnosis I was underweight because I could  not finish a meal, I never cleaned a plate or even consumed many ounces of my meal.   Every meal had gluten and most of the time I would get sick a few bits in.  Now I can actually eat and finish a meal and am probably consuming more calories than I ever have in my life.    Now I wish I could loose some of what I have put on, but I figure this is probably where I should have been all along and I stopped fighting it.
