Weight Loss for People Living Gluten Free

Celiacs and other people living gluten free must agree with wheat-eating experts that “Despite the way it feels, losing weight is not a mysterious process. To lose one pound of fat, you must burn 3500 calories over and above what you already burn…”

I recommend this slide show as an introduction to the weight-loss process. Then try these articles that discuss “tricks” that we can use to reduce the amount of food we consume. In these article, there is no distinction between the gluten free and the wheat eater. We are talking about ‘how’ we eat rather than ‘what’ we eat. The titles are so similar that they are humorous: consider “Ten Simple Tips…”, , Nine Diet Tips…“, “Five Ways to Trick Yourself…”, and finally “A Dose of Tips…”. Since there are twelve tips in the last article, you will be considering a total of 36 ideas. There is much repetition here, but that may help you grasp these essential ideas.

Next Thursday, I’ll write about our attitudes and how they affect our weight gain. Attitudes toward food are essential, and our feelings about foodhave been profoundly influtenced by our gluten free diets.

The final article in the series is scheduled for February 24 will deal with issues of calorie counting. Yes, despite what you may have heard, calories do count.

All the information I have about weight control for people who live gluten free is summarized on my power page “The Gluten Free Weight Loss Diet“. Click on the title to go to that page. Another option is to scroll down to the bottom of this article (past the ads) and click on the red tag that says “lose weight gluten free”. You will be taken to a page that shows the first few sentences of each of my articles on the subject. Click to read the complete article.

    why is it so hard to lose weight being on a gluten free diet?. I understand it’s calories in and calories out…..It just seems harder.When I was diagnosed i was 40 pds lighter. The weight just kept on climbing….it stopped now and I am trying really hard to lose it. Is there a possibility that when you have Celiac it does damage to your intestines that makes it almost impossible to lose weight…I hope I see results soon. NOTE: Losing weight is incredibly difficult. Coping with both the gluten free and the low-calorie diet aggravates the problem further. Good luck. This post is the first of three articles on the subject of weight loss dieting. Hopefully, it will be helpful.
