Successfully Putting on Weight Despite the conditions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is a odd one for me I thought I would cover some points and share this update I am so proud of. I am finally putting on muscle weight. I am up to 130lbs which is more then I have weighed in several years. Coping with 2 AI diseases that make nutrient absorption difficult, topped with a medically limited diet due to the celiac disease preventing me from eating gluten, Ulcerative Colitis preventing me from eating carbs or sugar. The inability to digest meats, and intolerance to dairy, soy along with allergies to corn, peanuts, and olives......yeah you see the limitations here. Yet fighting against all this and trying to body build and prove I can has been my drive. Note this picture is for a proof reference, I went and looked in the mirror today, I was happy to not see caved in stomach I used to have, or the bloated one I get from a flare up, but normal looking, and a lean muscled body......it really made my day seeing this improvement from what I used to be.
