Hi - Lots of people here have gone through the weight loss after starting the diet. I'm not one of them :( and can't give you an insight, but keeping checking back. You'll get plenty of suggestions and support.

I continued to lose wait also. I found that Ensure (a high protien drink) was both gluten-free and good for maintaining weight. Actually, it put me into a weight gain mode so you have to be careful.

Good Luck! :)

Laura,

I lost 25 poinds in 3 months after going gluten-free... (210 to 185)

Somefolks lose weight because of the loss of all those carbs (South Beach effect)...

I eventually began to get back to my normal weight after a few months....

Thanks! I was thinking maybe I was doing something wrong....It kind of took me by surprise when I weighed. I thought that if my body was able to absorb nutrients better, I would gain weight. But looking back at my previous diet, it was all high carb, high fat, low nutrient. So it makes since that a leaner, more protein diet would cause you to lose weight. I will try the ensure!

Thanks to all who responded so quickly, it really does help!!!
