Hi Robin:

I'm not sure what you are eating right now, but I read a thread yesterday that a celiac couldn't take off weight, but then realized she was eating all corn and rice and potatoes. That will pack the weight on. Perhaps sticking with just the basics of lean meats, fresh veggies, and fresh fruit.

Did you lose a lot of weight before you were diagnosed? I had lost tons of weight and once I stopped eating gluten I gained it back pretty quickly and then stopped gaining after I got back to my normal weight.
