Before I was diag. I lost around 35 lbs.

Now I've gained back 8-10 lbs but I'm having a hard time keeping it on.

I'm not under weight or starving just a lot smaller in stature than before.I've even been lifting weights and my strength in almost where it was before I got really sick but my weight doesn't move.

For about the first 9 months after going gluten-free, I slowly lost weight. Not much, maybe 5 - 10 lbs. My doctor was very concerned about this and ran all the tests for small bowel lymphoma. Fortunately, the tests were negative, and now I am slowly gaining.

I don't mean to be an alarmist, but you should follow through with your gastroenterologist. It could be serious and you want to catch that early. If you're ok, then maybe you can be referred to a nutrionist to address the issue from a dietary standpoint.

Also, keep in mind that the gluten-free diet is very similar to the low carb diet that is all the craze right now for losing weight!

I have hit a plateau myself and would like to lose another ten lbs. I am not sure that it is possible though. I would be happy to take suggestions on how.

Sorry for the confusion about the carbs, Eddie. You're right, rice has lots 'O carbs, but they are considered "good" carbs - kinda like the "good" cholesterol!

My reference was that the success behind diets like Atkins, is the almost complete elimination of "bad" carbs like white bread - which we do too! :D

yea i know wat u mean now...i asked my girlfriend who's a student nurse and she told me the same thing...= )

i started again to take Nitro Tech, itz a protein supplement for weight gaining for people who work out...i read the ingredients throughly and none of it has anything that contains gluten...so i'm hoping that with me workin out and takin this stuff will help me to gain some weight, and of course get a nicer body..= )

Good luck on your workouts and weight gaining! I'm 45 and have been thin all my life (well, thin compared to most Americans!!!). Many years ago, I worked out pretty regular, but never gained any weight. Of course, that was before I was on the diet. Now I'm too old, too lazy, and too indiferent to care! :P

Rice might be considered a good carb, but if you eat any of the gluten-free breads, cakes, cookies, and other goodies then you certainly couldn't call those good carbs or low carb!

Despite the fact that I do eat gluten-free rice bread a couple of times a week and the same for the gluten-free sweets, I have lost 20 lbs in the last 8 months! :D I have 30 lbs more to go to be in the high end of my ideal weight range, and then I will be so happy. This is the first time I have lost weight eating whatever I want (ie: not counting calories, carbs, fat grams, etc!) in the past 10 years! It seems my body just wasn't healthy enough to want to let go of any of the food I WAS able to digest, so it turned it all into fat. Now I am absorbing properly I can loose the extra weight now.

I do feel bad for those of you who do NOT want to lose any more weight. I would suggest either checking your diet to make sure that you are not accidently getting gluten in that would cause you to keep loosing weight (like before going gluten-free), or else maybe add in some more calories to your diet. Healthy choices are always the best when adding more calories, nuts are good, since they add calories, protein and healthy fat to your diet.

God bless,

Mariann

    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt
