Need To Gain Weight

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

New to this forum but not to celiac disease. Was diagnosed when I was 18 months old and I'm now 35 (seen a few improvements over the years).

Have always been thin (150lb/68kg) in fact I've been within a couple of kilos since I was an 18 year old. Have been always able to eat as much food (gluten-free) that I could possibly fit in without putting any weight on. And I have tested this theory to the extreme on more than one occasion eating an obscene amount and finding out the next day that I weighed less (absolute disbelief).

For those out there who battle with losing weight this may sound fantastic, but those out there that are like me and have extreme difficulty puting on weight know how frustrating it really is. :angry:

I very active and eat lots of fruit and vegies everyday, as well as red meat, chicken and lots of fish. Became a father 2 years ago which also keeps me on the go.

Really need help or advise on anyones past experiences, (specific eating plans, supplements, whatever will help)

Thanks in advance

My son was diagnosed at 14 months and he is now 22 months old. He is very small for his age, even though he eats alot.

You said your weight, but not your height. My husband barely weighs 150, if that. He is only 5'9 though. He looks normal to me and works out, so he is all muscle. He can eat whatever he wants and never gains any weight. He doesn't have celiac disease, but a high metabolism. Also we are vegetarian, but eat dairy. Anyway, my point is I don't know if it is the celiac disease for you or maybe you just have a very high metabolism.

I am sure there are proteins out there to drink, but it might now help much.

GOod luck,

MOnica

Sorry Monica, I'm a smidge over 6' and hover around 150lb's. You are correct it very much is my metabolism, my parallel's that of a rabbit I believe.

Any ideas would be much appreciated, its not for health reasons as I eat very sensibly, sticking to the diet strictly. I suppose its a little for superficial reasons.

I have a high metabolism and I have always been thin. I haven't gained weight since I went gluten-free, but I have maintained it. I try to eat a lot of nuts and beans. Also I have to eat about every two to three hours. But I'm not able to offer much help because I haven't gained weight either.
