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

    • You can always check to see how long the lab order lasts, if you'd like to continue eating gluten longer.
    • Might be something else in there, perhaps he ate something else with gluten, something was mixed in the chips, the chips were flavored or in a snack mix with pretzels. I get that way with gluten, but the last 2 times the gut issues render me unable to argue like that but I do go Mr. Hyde like =. Seems to be linked to my mental confusion that arises when I eat gluten the fog and looping of thoughts causes extreme anger and makes it where I can not connect things and think rationally leading to anger, outburst, random acts, and punching and breaking things out of frustration.
    • I hate to say it and be Mr. Negative ass here. But I had this exact same thought about having kids, I do not wish any kids I have to have my AI issues, and decided I would wait a few decades if need be for the new gene editing things they are working on so we can have them changed. Call me crazy.
    • Unsure but I would say wheat, when making that kind of soup you normally use wheat base flour as a thickening agent when preparing the soup. Often formed into a roux with the meat juices after cooking the meat and before adding the rest. Yeah I have issues with the pick up thing too, never accidentally ordered but I have to call them after every order to make sure they know it is me (manager knows me) and they do not put seasonings or sauces on stuff.   It is one of two restaurants in town I trust, but there are only two sides they do that are safe. I bring my own sauce, and main meal order the sides and a drink and go there to fee like a normal human sometimes. lol On a cooking note you can make your own using another flour, a deep nutty flavor like sorghum works great with this or garbanzo for the roux. You can also go and apply another technique where you take some roma tomato chop them up and stir them simmering with a bit crushing them with the ladle in the ban and it will thicken in to a roux like consistency. I find this last method pairs well with a cooking wine to deglaze and add brightness when finishing and can be used for flavorful soup bases or gravies.
    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.
