Celiac Disease And Loosing Weight



Celiac Disease and​ Loosing Weight
Many celiacs lose weight before they are diagnosed; indeed it​ is​ often one of​ the​ reasons people go to​ their doctors in​ the​ first place. ​

Once on​ a​ glutenfree diet the​ symptoms disappear,​ and​ as​ a​ result of​ better absorption or​ simply eating more,​ some people gain too much weight.
Losing weight should be based on​ eating sensibly rather than lurching from one diet to​ another. ​
Be wary of​ low carbohydrate diets,​ as​ high protein diets can cause acidosis,​ which in​ turn can lead to​ calcium being lost from the​ bones.
You should always check the​ ingredients of​ any low calorie / low fat / low carbohydrate products as​ they may use ingredients containing gluten to​ thicken or​ stabilize the​ product. ​
These are often wheat based.
Moderation is​ the​ key. ​
Don’t deprive yourself but be honest with yourself. ​
Snacking and​ raiding the​ fridge can add huge amounts of​ empty calories.
Consider the​ relationship you have with food if ​ you are using it​ to​ compensate for feeling unhappy it​ is​ better to​ deal with the​ underlying problem rather than use food. ​
You end up with both the​ unhappiness and​ a​ weight problem. ​


It is​ quite useful to​ keep a​ food diary for a​ week before attempting to​ change your diet. ​
This refers to​ weight loss only,​ you must stick to​ your glutenfree diet at ​ all times. ​
Look for empty calories,​ hidden fats and​ sugar. ​
How much ​alcohol​ are you drinking? Be absolutely honest. ​
Cut down on​ convenience foods as​ they are usually high in​ fat,​ sugar and​ salt.
The best way to​ lose weight is​ to
Eat regular meals,​ particularly breakfast.
Consider your portion control,​ and​ use a​ smaller plate. ​

Don’t feel you have to​ eat everything on​ your plate. ​
Always stop eating when you are full!
Eat lots of​ fruit and​ vegetables at ​ least 5 portions a​ day,​
Fill up on​ vegetables if ​ it​ is​ green and​ leafy or​ red you can eat as​ much as​ you like
Eat potatoes,​ yams,​ sweet potatoes and​ parsnips in​ moderation
The way you cook food is​ important
Remember frying,​ roasting or​ putting loads of​ butter on​ vegetables adds lots of​ fat and​ calories beware
Cut out the​ snacks they are often very high in​ fat and​ or​ sugar. ​
if ​ you must eat between meals eat fruit,​ carrot or​ celery sticks
Be sensible with carbohydrates chose wholemeal rather than white bread,​ rice and​ pasta as​ it​ takes more calories for the​ body to​ digest,​ you feel full for longer and​ they have a​ higher level of​ vitamins and​ minerals. ​
Eat them in​ moderation
Trim fat off meat and​ don’t eat the​ skin of​ fish or​ poultry there is​ a​ high concentration of​ fat just under the​ skin
Beware hidden calories in​ drinks / snacks a​ single tin of​ non diet fizzy drink contains the​ equivalent of​ 7 teaspoonsfull of​ sugar
Crisps / biscuits / cakes / chocolate / sweets should be a​ treat they are laden with fat,​ salt and​ sugar
​alcohol​ is​ high in​ calories; approximately 80 calories for a​ small glass of​ wine. ​
1 unit.
Cut your intake of​ salt sodium can increase blood pressure.
Eating and​ weight are like the​ seesaw at ​ the​ park. ​
One end represents the​ calories you take in​ what you eat. ​
the​ other end is​ the​ calories you use in​ your daily activities including exercise.
If you eat more calories than you use you will put on​ weight. ​
the​ seesaw will go up as​ will your weight.
If you eat fewer calories than you use you will lose weight. ​
the​ seesaw will go down as​ will your weight.
Drink plenty of​ water it​ will purify the​ system and​ help to​ make you feel full.
Drinking icecold water will burn off more calories than drinking water at ​ room temperature.
It is​ vital that you follow a​ sensible balanced diet when you are trying to​ lose weight,​ ensuring you get enough vitamins and​ minerals if ​ you want to​ remain healthy. ​
We all know that is​ good advice,​ but for celiacs yoyo dieting can seriously damage your health!
