  1. Protein Drink

    I drink the isopure shakes, get the liquid kind not the powdered and I recommend going with either alpine punch (tastes like fruit punch) or apple melon. One bottle has anywhere from 200-260 calories and 40 grams of whey protein. It is gluten-free and smooth and tastes pretty good. Also (unless you have an allergy) try soy protein shakes they tend to pack the most protein per drop. Isopure is great, filling and since 2 out of my 3 meals consist of protein shakes I really recommend it. Its even kept me from passing out.
  2. Boasting Time

    I've lost a lot of weight too on a gluten-free diet. I went from 140 lbs to a 115 lbs in just a few months (without any exercise), but it is mostly because I've lost all of my appetite and have a hard time eating over a 1000 calories a day. Has any other celiac lost their appetite? Also, because of my age I am only a few pounds away from being underweight, does anyone have any tips on how to plateau or how to stimulate appetite? Thanks for your help. l.j. Christian first post,
