  1. Weight Gain After Recovering

    Its been nearly 4 years since I went off of gluten. Last year in January I suddenly put on 15 lbs in about two weeks. That might not seem like much, but I could never put on weight and always looked gaunt and sickly from the time I was a child. I've been working out, eating well, and haven't been poisoned too often lately, and yet this extra weight still remains a year and a half later, not growing, not shrinking. I have a theory that maybe I've healed to the point where finally my body can absorb nutrients and fats again and its adjusted me to a proper healthy weight. My doctor thinks the stubborn weight gain is from a thyroid issue, but I exhibit no other symptoms of such a thing. If anyone has had a similar experience after being off of gluten for a few years I'd love to hear about it!
