Welcome to the team. Yes the gluten free are higher in calories so you do need to watch our for them.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

First tip is to know that gluten free flours are higher in carbs and calories then wheat flour is. So you need to limit yourself for the baking and eating of gluten free goodies. I use them for a treat.
Second. After going gluten free you intestines heal and are now able to absorb more nutrients. Making it so you have to eat less. So, watch what you eat. Fill up on veggies and fruit and limit your starches.
Any particularly good tips to make that happen (lose weight) with GF eating? I am struggling with a big increase as well. I do recognize that GF prepared foods are often more calorie laden and that we should stick to naturally GF foods. I do exercise regularly but obviously I am missing some part of the solution.
Welcome to the team. I think a lot of us who have gone GF have gained weight. I went from 128 to 157 in a very short time. Right now I am just trying to get back to 140 and hold. I feel for my age I can live with that.
I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 09. I am overweight, had not real symptoms until I became severely anemic I have gain 20 pounds since becoming gluten free. I need to start healthy eating and stop feeling like if I able to eat it I should. So this is my first day on starting a new healthy eating diet. Thinking positive.
