I Feel Like I Am Starving

Recommended Posts

Is this going to go away as my body adjusts to this new lifestyle? It has been this way for years and I read that it is pretty normal when you are eating gluten. What I want to know is once I stopped how long is this going to last? I get woken up in the middle of the night (abandoned puppy) and I am starving then. When I get up in the morning I am starving, when I eat I am starving within a half hour unless I eat a lot a lot a lot of food. I was hoping this would go away once I went on the gluten-free diet.

I really don't think I am getting contaminated because I am not having other problems like the big D.

BUT I FEEL LIKE I AM STARVING!!!

According to Dr. Green, this is a common experience. www.celiacdiseasecenter.columbia.edu

"Q: I feel hungry all the time. Is that normal?

Yes, it is very common. Your body is making up for the time it wasn't fully absorbing foods. Hunger levels tend to normalize within the first months after eliminating gluten and beginning a well balanced diet of gluten-free foods."

Ahh thank you. I was hoping this was the answer I just needed to hear it from someone that knows.

I was the same way the first month or two of being gluten free. I gained about 8 lbs though because I was so hungry all the time and unlike before, my body was actually starting to absorb it! It does get better!

I was like this in the first months after going gluten free as well. It's three years ago so i don't remember exactly how long it took to stabilize, but I think it was longer than a couple of months.

Don't try to limit your meals at this point, just try to eat nutritious food when you eat, and not too much low nutrition junk. In the first months I found eating a little but very often felt the best.
