Does anyone know of any gluten free weight gainers? or a good suplement to take for additional protein. I recently self diagnosed myself with celiac, and im used to eating whatever i wanted, which included alot of bread. But the diet is causing me to lose weight, which isn't good since im already skinny. So I guess im looking for some guidance on how to put on some pounds.

You have to add good fats..like Olive oil,nuts, avacados, and coconut oil. If you're eating mainly fruit, veggies, and meats it's hard to get enough calories.

If you tolerate dairy, cheese is good for adding calories too.

You might consider eating more of the gluten-free grains also, such as rice, quinoa, amaranth, etc, assuming your system can tolerate them and assuming you can control for CC. Something else that has helped me get comfortable in my new "underweight" body is calculating my BMI. Although I am now also quite thin (by Western civilization standards), my BMI is in the "healthy" range. Knowing that my risk of metabolic syndrome diseases is much lower as a result is some comfort...

This is good advice! I weight train and let me tell ya......I have had to go back to eating more grains and bread because it's the grains and bread that make people gain weight, not meat, veggies and fats. When you exercise, you are just burning it all off.

Carbs put the pounds on. Although I have to admit, I can eat anything and everything because of the weight training. Best way to ramp up your metabolism!

I have no trouble finding safe gluten-free bread and grains that are not contaminated, either. I have not reacted to food in a long time and my antibody levels are really good so I am comfortable with that.

    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
    • I don't have milk in liquid form any more, so I switched to coconut flavoured milk (rice based) for cereal, really like it. Then I take coffee black which I've also adjusted to. For an occasional treat I'll have a soy latte, tastes a bit nutty but I'm used to it now and it's as much about the visual treat of sitting in a coffee shop with a big milky coffee anyway. The last time I had a real milk latte I got some huge spots a day or so later on my chest and that was the clearest signal that milk and my skin weren't a good mix. What I haven't done is stop eating products that have milk listed as an ingredient. If I do that I lose so many of the nice gluten-free replacements  biscuits ice cream etc. I know I could try and get dairy free, but it's expensive and difficult to find. So maybe I should try doing that and see how I go... It's funny, a few years ago I used to have a 'healthy'  breakfast of porridge, milk, with a big spoon full of wheat bran for fibre which I convinced myself I needed for digestion. I used to feel pleased with myself for having a good start to the day when I subsequently found it was the worst combination of foods I could possibly have devised. I think If I ate that right now I'd explode!
    • I and many others here have been there and sympathise! Keep on keepin' on, it won't be long now before you can start feeling better. In the meantime, if there's a cheesecake, pastry etc that you want to say goodbye to, now's the time...
    • I'm not Catholic but I remember reading an article about gluten-free host wafers. Looks like this church has developed some guidelines you could show to your priest? https://www.dioslc.org/ministries/disabilities/holy-communion-for-people-with-celiac-disease
