Losing Weight And Frustrated
0

5 posts in this topic

So, since I've lost a good eight pounds from obvious steatorrhoea, which has been confirmed, aside from taking Creon, what kind of things should I do to help myself gain/keep weight? Less sugar consumption? Less fat intake? I have started eating more, and increasing my caloric intake to between 2500-3000 calories a day. I already have a fast metabolism, and I started out slim to start with. Originally I weighed 140, now I only weigh 132. I'm trying my best to keep this weight and gain more, but it's getting frustrating because I don't know even with the caloric increase if I'm actually gaining anything. Is there something you guys did to help this? Thanks.

Are you newly gluten-free? If so, it can take time for your body to heal and begin to absorb nutrients properly. Once this happens weight/metabolism issues tend to equalize - those that lost weight gain and those that gained weight lose - for now keep up the caloric intake and increase good fats from fish, nuts, avocado, coconut, olive oils, etc.

My son and I both lose weight every time we have problems with one or more of our foods bothering us. We have to do diet challenge/elimination studies to figure out what it is. We both get pretty obvious symptoms so that helps figure it out. Then we consume like crazy to get the weight back up again. Whole milk and whole milk yogurt helps a lot. I've just been through that and regained the 5 lbs that I had lost. My son could still use another 10 or so.

Do you just need to heal more to get rid of the steatorrhoea, or do you need to make dietary changes?

Like GottaSki said, it could be because you're new to the diet (if you're new to it). I've been gluten free for almost two years now and have only started putting weight back on, except for some silly reason, its going all to my stomach :angry:

It'll definitely take some time, especially if you have a fast metabolism. I have one too, which could be why I took so long to put the weight on.

Eat plenty of meats, eggs, avocadoes, fish, and nuts. I don't suggest sugar and carbs because they can cause other problems.

    • Yeah but it does explain my slight reactions I get  randomly from those two foods. Wish there was a very well documented lab study. You know like 10-20 different brands testing 1 batch per week over the period of 12 months recording the gluten content to the PPM and posting it. Also a varied control of doing it twice once with washed once with unwashed.   Would love to see this kind of study done to just lay it out plain in a table of data instead of a huge written article of various opinions on what might be what could be, and OH this is safe for SOME. or IT COULD BE.
    • Always had a slight fear of diabetes myself due to my nerve issues was first thought by doctors to be diabetes. I will tell you something that I did for another reason that slammed that thought. I got a glucose monitor kit for like $14 for everything. And started checking my blood sugar for a few days making record of meals snacks, moods etc. IT did show that on the lower end of healthy and higher end is when my mood changed. BUT they were all well within your normal range of 90-135. Few times after waking up in the morning was a tad lower and after working out, but that depletes your glucose stores, and this ran with my binge eating urges....oddly for nuts and protein, and stevia tea.     But the fact is it showed my blood sugars changes very little in relations to my food, but more to do with my physical activity and stress, along with normal ranges so proved I was not diabetic at all in my mind. Congratulations on finding your regime and issues out so far, hope you nail down your other culprit. Might just take more healing and time an be nothing.
    • Have you taken lactose out of her diet?  Trouble digesting lactose might be a temporary side effect of Celiac Disease.  It is also possible to be lactose intolerant and Celiac.  You might try eliminating it and see if that helps.
    • In my opinion, this  author goes a bit over board with her "gluten is everywhere" agenda.  
    • Yes! They have been ruled out. All my nutrient and hormone levels are good!
