Fitness and Dieting

Hello! Two things for everyone here. I was recently diagnosed (through blood work, not yet have gotten the endoscopy), and have been super into fitness for a while. I always feel the best when working out. 

 

Firstly, almost all (except the peanut butter ones that are I think mixed with chocolate and stuff) are gluten free at LA Fitness! They do have yogurt for those who don't eat dairy, but for those who can its good. I've had it multiple times, and the workers by me in NY are usually pretty good with properly cleaning the smoothies stuff between each one. 

Secondly, I am wondering if anyone has found a good diet plan. I've lost about 75 pounds over the past four years through low carb dieting (it was 90 but I gained some back). I have been going to the gym during my lunch and after work every day, so about 35 minute session during the day, and an hour and a 15/20 at night. My diet consists of:

 

I have a quest protein shake for breakfast with almond milk (Quest powder is gluten free, low calorie, and ranges between 1-3 net carbs); Lunch I usually have a salad with ranch dressing, baked chicken, and sprinkled with cheese; Snack: another protein shake after my noon gym; dinner is usually eggs. 

I would like to create a gym routine that works going twice a day, and maybe if anyone has any suggestions about adding to my diet/changing it. I bought blackberries this week to try to add some fruit, but I am trying to keep my carbs down. 

I was wondering if anything else here has found a great routine/meal plan that would like to help me/talk about it. I want to keep my fitness going well!

Wow!  That's awesome. Congrats on your success. In my experience, successful dieting, whether  it for weight loss, general health, muscle building, etc looks very different from one person or another. What works for one person may not work for another.  This is due to a number of reasons: finances, family, time to exercise, motivation, chronic health issues, food preferences, etc

The diet you are on is gluten free (as long as you verify that your shakes are gluten free). So, if it's working for you, it seems as though, to me, you wouldn't have to change it.

I will say that about 3months into my gluten free diet after my diagnosis last year I suddenly gained 10lbs in 1month.  My weight had been relatively stable (minus pregnancy) for the previous 10-15 years. I suspect it was because I was finally absorbing all of my food.   This was disappointing to me.  I am still working on getting used to eating less than I used to and I've only lost 5 of the 10 lbs. :) 

 

Good luck!

great work! I just started to attend the gym and it's not so easy for me as I thought...My trainer advised me to drink at least 2 litres of water a day and eat more fruits.

    • Hi!   It is true that there is a strong link of autoimmune thyroiditis (Grave's Disease or Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) with celiac disease because both are autoimmune disorders.  You can get screened for celiac disease by taking a simple blood test (JMG supplied excellent advice).   You do need to be on a gluten-containing diet (daily, 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood draw) as eliminating gluten from will yield negative results.   I wish you well.  
    • I looked at their website, but did not see anything that mentioned gluten free.  Tea is normally gluten free unless gluten (usually barley based) is added.  But that should be included on the label.  I drink plain old Lipton and Republic of Tea (this one is certified gluten-free).  It is possible (though very low) that the tea was cross contaminated.  Here is more information about tea: https://www.verywell.com/is-tea-gluten-free-562355 I know I am always perplexed when I suspect a glutening.  My gluten exposure symptoms are never consistent.    So, I email my GI and ask for a celiac antibodies test.  If positive, I do my best to track down my gluten source.  Sometimes I am not successful, but by testing I can determine is gluten is actually the root cause or not.  I have only done this twice since my diagnosis.  Not everything is due to celiac disease.  
    • Hi I was wondering if anyone knew if red rose tea bags were gluten free? I have been drinking this tea for years now and the past few weeks I have not been able to drink it. I get cramps in my lower abdomen and this morning I got nauseated. I was wondering if this is something to do with the tea?
    • @LouiseBea Welcome!  Has celiac disease (dermatitis herpetiformis, skin version) been ruled out?  DH treatment requires a life-long gluten free diet.  
    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.
