  1. Hello Everyone, My name is Jeff and this is my first post. I am 39 yrs old and was diagnosed last feb (08). I have been struggling with weight gain my whole life and was hoping that once i was diagnosed i would start to put on some weight. I am 5'9" and have weighed about 125-130 for about the last 15 years of my life. let me say that as bad as it might sound i hate being skinny. I have seen so many people struggle with trying to loose weight and the same emotional struggle exists for some like me that want to "fill out". Im tired of people telling me that i should be thankful i dont have to be strugglig with excessive weight. For all the reasons they want to loose weight...i want to gain!! I have tried everything i can from personal trainers to nutritionists with no luck..i would only gain a pound or two but not the 15-20 lbs i would like to. I have heard many say that once your body starts to heal from a gluten free diet that most people begin to gain weight. I have been on the diet for over a year with nooooooo luck! currently weight 127 lbs and am getting discouraged. Does anyone have any suggestion to GAIN SOME WEIGHT? Please dont just suggest eat more because at this point if i take time to eat any more than i am i will have to quit my job. I am constantly eating.
