  1. Will I Gain Weight?

    Hi GG, First off, thank you for the post. I was being kinda vague in the post, my goal was to get some fat and once i got about 10 lbs then ill start lifting and use that fat to help build muscle, but for 6 months (since i was diagnosed) i haven't gained any thing(1), so now im going to change tactics and start to lift. (1)should i give it more time and see maybe i will gain that fat within a few more months or just start lifting? My diet was and still is: Breakfast; 1-2 eggs, 2 pieces of gluten-free bread with cream cheese on both (sometimes i add a few slices of hard cheese), cup of OJ and my multivitamins(just started taking them last week). Brunch; tuna salad with lots of mayo and a whole avocado. Lunch; meats(beef, chicken, fish, etc..) and side dish (potatoes, rice, gluten-free pasta, salads, etc..). Dinner; 2-3 bowls of gluten-free chex cereal with regular whole milk. Others; a few snacks in between meals (fruits, candy bars, ice cream, used to drink protein shakes but no results of weight gain so i stopped), i drink 2-3 liters of water a day. That's basically my diet, as you see i have protein and fat and to me it looks like an all in one diet, but please let me know what you think and if i should add or take off something, anything will be much appreciated. Thanks again.
  2. Hello fellow celiacs, My name is Nick (I'm new here), I'm 22 years old, my weight is 120 LBS (under weight) and i was diagnosed with celiac disease back in February (Iv been gluten free since then). Iv been skinny all my life and Iv been trying to gain weight for about 5-6 years now and i never could put on the weight no matter how much i ate or worked out due to all of the side effects (mainly constant diarrhea) before i was diagnosed and now i know why. Iv been gluten free since i was diagnosed 6 months ago, i eat 4 meals a day, i have a very good diet, i workout 4-5 times a week push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, no weights yet but im starting this week, and i dont seam to be gaining any weight. so my question is will i gain weight while diagnosed with celiac disease? any comments and/or pointers will be great help. Thank you!
