  1. Hello! I am 26 years old, 5'6'', and 160 pounds. I was diagnosed as a Celiac 2-3 months ago via blood test AND endoscopy. I have been gluten free for about 2 months now - and I cannot stop gaining weight! I've read many posts on this site telling people to watch out for the gluten-free substitutes for bread, pasta, etc. Well - I don't eat those except maybe once or twice a week for one meal that day even. I eat very clean - this is what I ate today: (hopefully you can see it) Breakfast Fage - All Natural Nonfat Greek Strained Yogurt, Total 0%, 0.33 cup (227g) Bob Mills - Chia Seeds, 13 g (1 Tbsp) Fruit - Nectarine - Large, 1 Large Nectarine 365 - Walnuts Chopped, 1 oz Mid Morning Meal Blackberries - Raw - Blackberries, 0.5 cup (250 ml) Driscolls Raspberries - Raw (Net Carbs), 0.5 cup Lunch Tyson Chicken Breast - Shredded Skinless Boneless, 8 oz Aldi - Roma Tomato, 1 tomato Mid Day Meal Acient Harvest - Quinoa Rotelle, 2 oz. (57g) Kraft - Reduced Fat Parmesean Grated Cheese, 2 tsp. Intek - Vanilla Protein Powder, 1 SCOOP Dinner Tyson Chicken Breast - Shredded Skinless Boneless, 4 oz Belfonte - Nonfat Sour Cream, 2 Tbsp Cilantro - Chopped, 0.1 cup Tillamook - Special Reserve - Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, 0.5 oz. Berkley & Jensen - Broccoli Florets, 1 cup (85g) Total Calories and Macros for the day: 1484 Calories 95 grams carbs 50 grams fat 156 grams protein 25 grams fiber I eat very clean (above is a typical day) - I love veggies, clean proteins, and love to cook my own meals from scratch. I have gained 10-15 pounds in the last two months. Exercising 3-4 times a week (weights) and a very active weekend chasing after my nephews. I have no idea what is going on! HELP! Alex
