Welcome to the board :) How low fat are you talking? I follow a low fat vegan diet to keep my weight off and to prevent high cholesterol and heart disease, mcdougall diet (similar to Ornish but a bit different)

mcdougall.com and vegiac.com are vegetarian websites. Vegiac is for vegetarians who have celiac and mcdougall is vegetarian and has a gluten free area on the forum with some members who have celiac also.

Be careful- too low fat won't help you lose weight. You end up consuming more empty calories, you don't feel full and won't lose weight because you keep eating the low fat foods--been there. Calorie reduction is the key--calories in/calories out. You have to expend more than you're consuming. Balance the calorie reduction (but consume no less than 1200--more depending on your activity level) with exercise and you should be on the right track. Try to get some form of exercise every day and eat a balanced diet--if you want more info (I have a ton), PM me and I'll do what I can to help out.

Maybe try a low-carb gluten free diet? I personally never lost weight on lowfat diets, but I've been on a low carb diet for about 6 months, and in that time I lost about 20 pounds and I've pretty much maintainted it, although I still have about 30 more pounds to go. Low carb is the ONLY way I've ever been able to lose weight.

Most low carb diets are low on the grains, if they include them at all, so the low carb recipes are easy to convert to gluten-free (as long as you ignore some of the ones using wheat gluten as a white flour substitute! :lol:)

If you REALLY want a low fat diet, then I guess look for any low fat or calorie restricted diet, and substitute gluten-free alternatives for any gluteny options on the plan.

Hi,

I have celiac and also pancreatitis. So i can not eat a high fat diet. I would say lower carb diets are pretty successful, but i eat good carbs! Fruits and veggies. Maybe sugar is a problem? When i eat frequant small meals i feel better and lose weight, even thugh i am eating basicall all day long. It is supposed to keep your metabolism going in a positive directiona and also good for maintaining blood sugar levels. I know it took a little while but i got used to the smaller (NORMAL) portions.

Good luck

Well after not getting my new jeans zipped, I have decided I am going back on the 6 week body makeover program. It is Gluten-free Casein-free (actually how we started questioning gluten). The recipes aren't half bad.

I would love to have some menus. I do exercise 2-3 days a week. I plan on doing more, but I just can't get over how much weight I am gaining. 17 lbs since May.... URGH.... I am now trying to dramatically reduce my portion sizes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Where can I find this 6 week program?

This thread is almost three years old. Those posters (and programs) may not be around any more.

To the new poster:

As someone on this (old)thread mentioned, lowering the carbs and keeping a good amount of protein and fats will serve you better. The worst thing a person can do is high-carb low-fat. Insulin is the fat building hormone. The more carbs you eat, the more insulin your body puts out to manage the blood sugar impact of those carbs and if those carbs come with extra calories attatched to them, well all the more impact on weight gain. Fats alone don't make a person fat. Plan your meals around meats or eggs for the protein, add in 2 servings of veggies and a small portion of whole grains or slowly digested carbs if you must. Check Paleo diet which also includes some fruits but no gains. Eat 3 balanced meals a day with a good size portion of protein at each. Don't skip breakfast and don't eat a sugary, carby breakfast.

I was just reading about this today! Apparently, people who keep track of their calories - jot down how much you ate, and how many calories - tend to do better in continuing to keep the calories down.

And on top of that, if you take a picture of every thing you eat, with your hand next to it so you can see the actual portion size, that supposedly works well with our brains to motivate.

Haven't tried it - it was in a weight loss book - but I did record the calories for about 6 months and lost quite a bit of weight that way, so that part at least helped! :-)

Portions have been a problem for me for years. In high school and college I was involved in athletics six days a week.....that made me get used to eating like a man.

I try to shop the perimeter of the store and to help with my portioning and I have moved all my meals off of my dinner plates and onto salad plates. The plate looks full and pretty and I am forced to cut back portion size to still have variety.

Having said that, smaller portions mean you have to eat more often....5-6 times a day. Just make sure that EVERY time you eat, that you have some variety and include protein and fruits or veggies. Even if it is just an apple or celery with a nut butter.

    • I used the seasoned bread crumbs from Better Batter this weekend while making red snapper. They were awesome. The Company is extremely caution to make items that are 100% gluten free. https://betterbatter.org/seasoned-bread-crumbs
    • I would not worry.  Things might resolve on the gluten free diet as celiac disease does impact fertility in many ways.   I hit perimenopause at 40.  It lasted over a decade (the range of years varies from person to person)  and I experienced every single perimenopause symptom (on and off) in the book.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease after I went though menopause because of anemia that would not resolve.   You could ask your GP/PCP to order a hormonal panel (include thyroid) if you see him/her sooner.   This will let you know if you are starting perimenopause.   My Mom breezed through menopause.  Not me!!!!!

    • Yeah, I was pretty surprised. However, lots and lots of fantastic wine and gin. Even the house wine at a pub is going to be a nice French or Spanish something. Also drank a lot of port. And they take their gin super seriously there, some really good stuff. The closest I got to having a beer was trying some gin distilled from geuze (wild-fermented beer). Very nice. Make up for the lack of beer by eating all the fries.
