Have you gained weight since you started eating gluten free? Click here to find out why.
Yes I have! Well, at first I lost 20# in less than two weeks and totally freaked out my doctor. That was almost 4 years ago, since I have gained 30# eating gluten free.
I have to agree with the article, I think I eat a lot differently now than I did when I first went GF. At first I had no idea what I could eat, so I stuck with plain meats, veggies and fruits. Then as the years went by I started adding in gluten free convenience foods, pre-packaged foods.
I'm starting to see where my 30# came about! I never looked at the carbohydrates of foods until this article and I am a bit shocked. The carbs in a slice of wheat filled white bread is much lower than a slice of gluten free white bread. The Points Plus value is higher too and the gluten free bread slice is tiny!
This week I am embarking on eating less processed and more meat/veggies/fruits. I had some $$ left on a gift card from Amazon and I bought a cool little gadget to makes veggies more fun...hahaha, if that were truly possible. It shipped yesterday, I will try it out and report back to you.
How about it? Have you gained or lost weight being gluten free?
