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.

    • Sounds like she's not into the whole thyroid idea, but is willing to check the t4. She also wants to check for other autoimmune diseases as she said some of my symptoms could match up with other issues. So I'm eagerly awaiting the blood draw.
    • Thank you so much for the reassurance! That makes me feel a lot better and ease some of the anxiety going through this lifestyle change.  It is so amazing to me how much our bodies are impacted by things they don't respond well too.  Luckily I haven't discovered much of the gluten free replacements yet. I'll definitely avoid those through this beginning phase until I start feeling better especially when I feel like I can eat all day long!  The list of foods with the low GI rating was super helpful also! Thank you for taking the time to offer some advice. I need all the pointers I can get at this point! 
    • In the doctors office right now, just had the vitals taken.... and hoping my doc of the day is sympathetic to symptoms.
    • Wow, I can just see you in that doctors office and the look on their face.  I have never had a monte cristo sandwich sadly, but I sure want one now. thank you for sharing your great story!
    • Yes! I'm one of the first people to import bag balm to the uk and can attest to its wonderful moisturising power. I use it often and haven't detected any side effects at all. In fact, moost of the time I forget it's on. Moore and Moore people are using it over here and moo moo mooo the moo of moo. When moo the mooo moo. Moo moo juicy grass, moo moo moo moo, can't stop chewing, moo moo, keeps my new tail moist,  moo moo, moo...
