  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Omg! I Can't Do This.. :(

    No, I don't eat fast food at all and I'm actually a health nut. I weigh 107lbs and am in very good shape but it is hard to find the time and the energy to learn all this stuff because you have to check for ingredients and additives in everything you buy. It does suck. Thank you all for your replies.
  3. I can't survive on such a strict diet! I'm having a really hard time adjusting and I can't go for very long without screwing up and eating stuff I shouldn't. I don't have time to cook my own meals because I pretty much work 24/7 so I don't know what to do. This is really discouraging and is the last thing I needed right now.
  4. Hi everyone! My name is Vania and I've been training like mad for the past month. I workout 4 times a week for at least 40 minutes and there have been no changes to my body at all!! I lost 3 lbs but the bloating and extra stubborn fat are still exactly the same way they were when I first started. This doesn't make any sense because I have been on a really clean diet and I don't eat more than 1300 or 1400 cals a day! I can't lose anymore weight because I look like I'm too thin but the fat just won't go away!!!!! I haven't been diagnosed, I'm acutally in the process of getting that done but I know I have it and my daughter does as well. I was just wondering if some of you have had problems getting the results you were looking for or the desired fat loss, and if those problem areas disappeared after you were diagnosed and changed your diet. Can celiac disease actually eat away at your muscles if you're not on a gluten-free diet and keep you from developping good muscle tone? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to know about your personal experiences with training. Thanks.
  5. Thanks guys for replying! I'm very selective when it comes to food and I always try to eat right but even though I'm only 107 lbs, there are certain areas in my body where fat simply won't come off no matter how hard I train. I haven't been diagnosed yet but I'm having my labs done this week and I know for sure I do have it because I have a multitude of symptoms that are telling me so. Plus, my daughther has it and her GI told me I probably do too and should get tested a.s.a.p. , especially when I told her about some of my symptoms. I read this girl's blog on another site and felt relieved because she seemed to be dealing with some of the same issues I'm dealing with right now and after she was diagnosed, they simply vanished after her diet changed. Maybe mine will too, especially when it comes to stubborn fat. I found her blog on a site called body building. com and if you type in celiac disease in the search section you'll see her article entitled Celiac Disease...A blessing in disguise! I tried posting a link but can't for some reason.
  6. Once we've been diagnosed with celiac disease and start changing our diet to gluten-free won't our body fat come off easily? The toxic effect produced by gluten ingestion will no longer be a problem so it'll be easier for the body to get rid of the fat cells used to accumulate these toxins since they will no longer be produced. Anyone ever experience significant body shape changes after diagnosis? Was anyone having difficulty achieving fitness results before you were diagnosed? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
