Loosing Weight, Not Good in Coping with Celiac Disease Posted October 29, 2009 · Report to Admin I'm having the same problem! I've lost almost 25 lbs. I'm a mere 97 lbs now. Used to be 115 (prior to diagnosis) then fell to 104. Now 97. It sucks because I've always been allergic to dairy, now now gluten, no eggs, no soy. And I'm on a fruit free ALL sugars free diet to kill of Candida. It's SO hard!!!!! Just add as many calories as you can everyday. CALORIES CALORIES CALORIES. Add an extra protein shake a day. Instead of water drink- Juice, dairy free milks, and get a good protein shake mix like Spirtein(it's gluten free/dairy free) or Jay Robb's Egg white protein, or Nutribiotic Rice Protein. They mix great with any juice or dairy free milk or go great in smoothies (come in all sorts of flavors). Also, Nut butters are key! Avocados, adding healthy oils to gluten free baked goods etc. Also, RED MEAT. Buffalo is great, it's higher in calories than beef and has a little less fat. Steak. Lamb. Also, eating lots of good whole carbohydrates as well as protein helps. quinoa, Amaranth, Teff, Buckwheat are all great grains to eat! High in protein and fiber as well as nutrients! Also, if you're excersizing regluarly, STOP! Yoga is okay though, help building muscle mass/tone as you gain weight back. Also, rest ALOT. I'm still working on gaining weight too! Hang in there!
