When Will I Stop Losing Weight?

5 posts in this topic

I have been gluten-free for 5 months. Since then I have gone from 142 lbs to 110lbs at 5'7" I am pole thin. I am very strict with my diet and Ive found brownies and cookies gluten-free to up my weight gain. If I make a mistake I feel the symptoms immediately and usually loose 1-2lbs more. Has anyone else dropped drastically in weight since going gluten-free?

Yes. I was at least 155 lbs and in 5 months have dropped to maybe 130 lbs. I am 5'4", and my pre-illness post-children weight was about 125 lbs, so I am not worrying about the weight loss just yet. I seem to feel symptoms very quickly and one of the earliest is nausea and loss of appetite. I will eat through this, but not as much as normal. If I've really copped it then I get a migraine and am completely unable to eat anything for a day or so, and then cannot eat all that much for a few days afterwards. My weight loss is therefore somewhat erratic, going in fits and starts. As I love food and eat well most of the time, I suspect that my weight loss may well stabilise once I get back to my skinny normal weight, which would be in the range 115 to 125lbs. Any less would not be good. My weight had ballooned in the last couple of years while I was unwell, until going gluten free.

Yes. Since August I've lost 40 lbs. Needed to but now I'm concerned because a set back happens often and I'm steadily loosing weight. Very thin runs in my family and I don't want to be very thin. Sorry if my news is discouraging but it is the truth.

Oh dear, that is a large weight loss in that time. My friends and family are noticing my circa 25 lbs weight loss, and either complimenting me or worrying about it. It would be odd for me to lose much more, as our family tends to the well-padded side, even the more longstanding celiacs among us. Only time will tell.

I hope you get a handle on your weight management soon.

I was never diagnosed with celiac, rather I was having severe allergic reactions to anything with gluten. It wasn't fun being that I am German and Italian. All we know is good bread and pasta! Unfortunately, my stint in the hospital was it for me. When I first stopped eating gluten I was taking celexa and lost nothing. I was also doing Taekwondo 3 times a week and working out daily. About 4 months ago I stopped taking celexa and since I have lost 50 pounds and it is still melting. It is a bit concerning since I was never able to lose weight before. Now my concern is like yours, will it stop? I haven't really replaced with gluten free, except rice flour and Udi's white bread. I am not fond of gluten free foods So now my diet is lots of smoothies, no processed foods and mainly organic. I feel great, but I don't want to be a toothpick.

    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
    • Has anyone had an reaction to potatoes? Just made couple bake potatoes 2hrs ago and now I feel awful...just wondering thought potatoes were gluten free🤷🏾‍♂️
    • I recently covered some pizzas when adding some grain free options to the gluten alternative list....I actually found a company that makes gluten-free hot pockets also sorta made me laugh. There are some unique ones out there now days even found one that made low carb crust out of chicken breast and cheese. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
