  1. Protein Drinks?

    Do you have a specific protein shakes/powder you prefer and know that are gluten-free?
  2. About a year ago I was diagnosed with Celiac's. I was and still am a vegetarian. I can't even think about eating meat! Since going gluten-free I have gained 47lbs!!!!! I excercise 3-5 times a week (45-60 min. each). I steer away from gluten-free breads, rice, and most desserts. I eat 600-1000 calories a day which I list in a food journal. (If I eat more, I gain) I have seen a dietitian, who had no idea why I was gaining weight and suggestested eating more protein and more calories, which resulted in 17 lbs in 3 weeks added to the initial 30 I gained in the first 3 months of going gluten-free. I have been to the local Physicians weightloss center, which can't help me because I am a vegeterian. No matter what I do I can''t get the weight off! I am desperate... Any suggestions?
