It seems that the folks who go off gluten and eat more naturally gluten free foods lose weight. Those who replace gluten with packaged, processed foods gain unfortunately. In the wintertime frozen fruits and vegetables are a good choice and I make stir-fries and soups because I don't have much taste for cold dishes in cold weather. I also found that once I was off bread for about a year that even having one piece of g-free bread would make me feel full.

About the protein... I've been reading that as we get older, we need more of it at one "feeding" in order to maintain muscle.

The magic number is 30grams, or about 4 ounces of steak or chicken... although you can get away with less if you supplement with the amino acid leucine.

The calorie count is high in many gluten free products. There is heavy use of fat and sugars.

If it is going to be it is up to me !!!

Interesting comment about the B12. If I have a store bought treat, it starts off a craving but I don't have a problem with home baked because I can limit the sugar and fat content. I don't make recipes that use shortening or margarine or more than 1/2c butter. I agree with the others about having protein in the morning. If I don't have a proper lunch, like protein, carb & vegetables, I will snack too much.

I agree about the protein for breakfast!

O, and I have to say I loved the title of this thread.. couldn't agree more!

Me... I've just given up that sort of stuff.
There's plenty of other yummy things to eat, than to be suffering with some imitation wheat product pretending its as good as the wheat based stuff!

I have found that since going gf my cravings have stopped. What does set my cravings off is starting the day without a good dose of protein. I think it has to do with blood sugar. Eating a couple of eggs does wonders for me throughout the day. If I start with any sugar I am off for that day entirely. Others on here have said the same.

plenty of protein seems to quell my carb cravings. I only use gf "treats" on special occasions. I use pancakes made of almond meal as roll ups for "sandwiches as they are mostly protein..

I find I crave sweet things and can binge terribly on them if my B12 is low. Have you had your levels checked?

My biggest problem is sweets and all the store bought cereal has sugar! All my cook books have lots of chocolate and this is my down fall . I have gained a total of 8 pounds since going on the Gluten free diet. I eat lots of vegetables, fruits and such but I crave bread ( found a good gluten free one), sweets and chocolate more than ever.
I live in Canada so fresh vegetables and fruit come from the southern countries and do not taste the same as fresh grown. I do eat them and lots as well as protein cheese, meats etc.
Is any one else having this problem? PS. I hate quinoa hot cereal but love the spaghetti pasta
