  1. Weight Watchers

    I've been on weight watchers for a couple of months, about as long as I've been trying to go gluten-free. And I've found that it's helped me a lot. It works well with gluten-free. If you join for meetings you can purchase a points calculator, with which you can figure out how many points things are worth. I've actually found that my gluten-free foods are a lot less points!
  2. I was in that same boat. My body developed very slowly, partially due to borderline anorexia, but now I wonder if it was a gluten thing too. Puberty seemed to have reversed itself for me. I didn't actually start my period until I was almost 18. I'm still smaller, I just moved up to a B cup bra. I have almost no figure still, but I found someone who likes my body, and that has made a huge difference in my self-confidence. You'll do fine.
  3. I've recently started a gluten-light diet, I'm having a really hard time going completely gluten-free. I've found I don't like a lot of gluten-free baked products because they seem powdery to me. I as well, am a very picky eater. Even before trying gluten-free I've always stayed away from breads and wheat products and such. I just find they make me feel sick. My acupuncturist actually sent me to save-on foods. In they're cake mixes, betty crocker has two gluten-free cake mixes that supposedly taste great. Also, this is more snack like than lunch, I tend to carry about gluten free cookies or something, or any other treats that you like, just to keep carbs up. Kinnick Kinnick makes really good gluten-free doughnuts as well. As far as lunch goes, I've found myself loving cesar salads with no croutons, but with asiago cheese and a sliced up chicken breast. You can prepare the chicken the night before, and just put it on the salad when you make it, or keep it separate and heat it up in the microwave before eating.
