Welcome to the Team! Good for you getting a proper diagnoses. Now you know what you are working with. I agree that it's best to stay away from the GF bakery products. I found it better for my weight and pocket book to just eat foods that are naturally gf: fresh fruit, vegetables, starches (rice, quinoa, corn, corn etc) beans and meat. I use corn tortillas as my "bread."

I make most of my own foods. I try to use lower calorie flours Or when buying stuff I do look at the calorie count and buy the lesser.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotin ~~~Author Unknown~~~
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.

I gained weight when I first went GF as I replaced my wheat foods with gluten free substitutes. Finding that they were much higher in calories and lower in nutrients, I now rarely eat gluten free breads, cakes, crackers, etc. and I am starting to lose a little again.
A goal is not enough - You have to have a plan.
You have not failed until you fail to try.
If hunger is not the problem, then food is not the answser.
Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease about two months ago. I have had the usual struggles to get to this point. I had just lost the baby weight and now find that having gone gf I am struggling to keep my weight stable. I am looking forward to hearing all your strategies and tips and being part of a supportive community. Rebecca
