My appetite has been crazy lately I can eat then an hr later I'm hungry again.. that's all fine I guess but I find myself eating more then usual is this common with celiac? I don't wanna over eat because I'm already experiencing a lot of gas, bloating and constipation and eating a lot is not helping ??

That is not uncommon when we first go gluten free. Your body is craving nutrients so be sure to eat a lot of good whole foods. If you haven't already you may want delete or strongly limit dairy for a month or two. That may help the bloating. Hope you heal quickly.

Yep, I eat very high fiber and protein to help will fullness....also sip on a protein shake all day to keep the cravings down and my weight up. Digestive enzymes, probiotics, multivitamins, will all help with the gas/bloating and sense of fullness.

I am also finding the same problem!

I have only been gluten-free for 6 weeks, however for pretty much my whole life I have always had a big appetite and eaten way more than normal for my size. A former boss used to say I eat like a truck driver - I  was always hungry and would stuff my face but managed to stay slim - I always put it down to high metabolism, now I know that isn't the reason why .... ?

I think I am feeling even more hungry now I have gone gluten free, its really frustrating as i never know how much food to cook or take with me to work for lunch. I eat a large portion and an hour later I am hungry again. I assumed the hunger pangs would go but I guess it is going to take some time...

Ennis - which enzymes and probiotics would you recommend? I have been taking iron supplement (in liquid form) for energy as I don't eat meat (not noticed any difference), and just started on magnesium with zinc as I heard this is supposed to help other nutrients absorb and may also help with energy. 

Also, do you eat high fibre & protein for all your meals? What about carbs? I have given up dairy for now and eating mostly unprocessed whole foods so hoping this will help.

I do not really eat carbs, I am on a ketogenic/paleo diet. I also hardly eat meat as I can not digest it. I have scoops of vegan protein powders through out the day, different brands and blend to get a complete blend. I eat a whole bunch of nuts, seeds, and smaller amounts of leafy greens, and low carb vegetables. I also consume massive amounts of egg whites. NOTE if your not eating meats Nutritional Yeast like the one by KAL can be great for getting in many nutrients, I even make vegan cheese sauces with it and slather that stuff on alot of my meals. I even eat breads made of nut meals, and vegan cheeses loaded with fats. You will find a very high fat, protein, fiber diet keeps you full longer and with less bloat then eating carbs. At least for me it works great this way. I supplement vitamin C, Iron, Magnesium, and various B vitamins. Should I give you a break down of today's meals as to a idea?

Breakfast

10 egg whites with 2 heaping tbsp of nutritional yeast and some almond milk, and coconut yogurt whipped in scrambled with sauteed mushrooms and fronteria barbacoa sauce seasoned jackfruit served topped with a bit of my homemade salsa and shredded lettuce. 1 of my homemade Vegan Cheesy garlic rolls, 2 pieces of Julian bakery toast with almond butter, hemp seeds, and smuckers sugar free strawberry jello.    

Mid morning snack 1oz of hemp seeds and

Lunch   Porridge made with almond milk, almond butter, hemp seed protein powder, konjac flour to thicken it 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 scoop hemp powder, and used pralines and cream extract and some of that strawberry sugar free jam in it,  Then had a slice of julian bakery toasted bread with julian bakery mozzarella melted over steamed Brussels sprouts and a bit of my vegan hemp Parmesan. 

Mid afternoon snack was a few hand full of almonds.

Dinner was 2 1/2 cups of my own homemade vegan icecream of almond milk, almond butter, coconut flour, coconut yogurt, stevia, monk fruit extract, butter rum extract and banana flavoring 3 scoops of protein powder, topped with cocoa nibs    and a side of that toast again with 1 egg whites, slices of avocado and sauteed mushrooms.

NOTE I eat a bit extreme like a body builder and tend to pace/walk about 12 miles a day average along with work out with weights.
