In addition to what others have said here, once you start actually absorbing your food normally you gain and your body has to adapt to actually having enough and not starving. I went through a period of time I was always hungry when I was first diagnosed. It passed in a couple months. Also it helped to eliminate dairy I am sensitive to that as well. If you have any other intolerances it can cause that as well.

If you stick to the raw foods and along with meats, poultry and fish you should be fine.,

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.

When you have to give up all the wheat-based foods you enjoy and rely on, it is a hard transition. The natural tendency is to find gluten free replacements... unfortunately they are usually higher in calories than their wheat counterparts.

Find foods that are naturally gluten free and eat those instead. Limit the amount of gluten free breads, crackers, pastas, etc. that you eat. Fruits, vegetables, meats, brown rice, quinoa... these are all naturally gluten free. You can also get GF oatmeal to make for breakfast or to use in making your own GF granola. (It's much cheaper to make your own!)

I have posted some recipes here that work very well for Celiacs who are trying to maintain and/or lose weight. Here are links for you:

Once you get away from the breads and pastas and the like, the craving for those things goes away. I haven't had a sandwich or toast for many months. When I do splurge on GF bread, I have to remember that I have it so I can use it up before it goes bad. :)

Good luck!!

Hi,
I like to make a pudding or drinks with chia seeds...they have protein, fiber and are pretty filling. I also make recipes with coconut flour and stevia (find your fav recipes on the internet)...it's low carb and low calorie. I always have these staples on hand for snacking. Also, there is julian bakery which has low carb and gluten free goodies although they are a bit expensive.
Good luck :)
