emoticon emoticon yyyYYYAAAYYYY! on giving up the cigs! (My mom's just been dx w/lung cancer - this is not fun for the family: it's not just about YOU! except it is, ya know what I mean?) People LOVE you and they depend on you for who you are in their life. It's empowering to take control of what you can. Good for you!

I lookie-looed in your food journal and am not sure if what you document is accurate or substituted in, but some of your items are not gf ... like I noticed Ezekial bread and Quaker oats for example. Did you know that? If "low" gluten is your goal, that's okay, I just want to make sure 'you' knew as I don't know what you've read or how you learned to become gf.

I gained weight going gf (trying all those new gf food products). I try to stick to whole foods, too. Watching the carbs has helped me (and walking).

Years ago, I started buying one lottery ticket each morning instead of a King Size bag of M&M Peanuts--won a few buck and lost a few pounds! Linda C

Sure does. I started buying more veggies to snack on during the day instead of peanut M&M's. Save the chocolate for the days when I REALLY NEED IT. not for a day to day snack, you don't get the scale to move in the direction you want it to with that approach!

That is a good question... I honestly believe that my weight gain is a combo of both.

BUT... I also know that since I was on a GF diet I allowed myself to eat more food and less healthy foods. I used being GF as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted... I think the weight gain is my fault not being GF. As for smoking I feel that I have worked very hard on not using food as a distraction from smoking but I am sure a little weight could be attributed to not smoking. Does that make sense??

Hello Allison and welcome to the list! I have been GF since June '08 and I look back and say .. wow it's been a long time! LOL

As for gaining weight going GF, do you think it is more the quitting smoking that did that? Congrats on that by the way! I found I lost weight by going GF as I was removing cookies and cake from my consumption...

I strongly recommend Karina's blog for help eating GF and using whole foods to boot.

My name is Allison. I have been wheat/GF since November of 2007. Wow has is been that long??!! I tested negative for CD but my stomach, skin, and entire body are much happier on a GF diet. My doctor recommended that I stay on wheat and retest until a positive test came back from Mayo, but after being sick for so long and having every test under the sun ,I decided to go GF without diagnosis. In the past I was all about finding the specialty GF foods but lately I have been trying to steer clear of the special GF food and just eat whole food. With that I also quit smoking 6 months ago. Since I went GF I have gained over 20lbs. I am looked to find a healthy long term nutritional plan. I am not into the fad or crash diets. I want to learn about nutrition and make healthy choices. I have also found it hard to use the other meal plans and be able to cut out or substitute the food I can't have. I hope to learn a lot from you all! emoticon
