Have you recently become Gluten Intolerant? Are you struggling with your weight? I know from experience, how hard it can be to find a weight loss program which is built for people who have Celiac Disease. Let me show you some simple ways to get rid of those extra pounds, safely and easily.
One of the strange facts about having a Gluten Free Diet, is that 99% of people will have mainly dramatic weight loss, and not weight gain. In most cases a rapid decline in weight is an indicator of having a Gluten problem.
Gluten Intolerance and Weight Gain. So whats happening to your body?
I mentioned above that 99% of people will lose weight, but a small percentage will gain weight, and there is a simple reason. I will try to explain this simply. When your body does not have an intake of Gluten, your body may react in a way that means you will have an insatiable appetite, as your body tries to adjust, and take in what it’s missing. A problem will then occur when your body cannot absorb or fully use that extra food, and hence you gain weight.
I must explain that people who are trying to lose weight by using a Gluten Free Diet will have to take precautions. Counterpart foods free from Gluten contain less vitamins, protein and fibre. It is a good idea to either take vitamin supplements, or extra foods which may contain these extra minerals and nutrients you might be missing out on.
So what can be done? How can I make my body lose weight?
The first step is to find out which foods are making you pile on the pounds. A simple reason is using Gluten Free flours and other products such as yeast substitute. These products may be good for a while, but over a short period, they could actually make you put on weight.
I know its easy for me to say many of these things, but I have family experience of this problem. A close family member was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and after many months of battling weight, it was finally got under control with some simple diet changes. If you are having problems with weight gain, trying some simple diet changes can make a big difference, and it’s not always the foods you think, that might be making you gain weight.
The second step that is quite easy to do, is not always choose the easy free foods. Having a healthy refrigerator and cupboard is a key to any weight loss program. In modern times, we have become very dependent on fast, easy foods, and the same can be said for Gluten Free products. The market is slowly becoming bigger, and its your choice to choose the low fat options, or even self made if possible.
We have looked at Gluten Intolerance and Weight Gain, and how making a few simple changes can be beneficial to your diet and body mass. What you need now is something to take it to the next level, and I have just the thing.
