I have been trawling through past posts on weight gain to try and understand any physiological explanation for gaining weight prior to my diagnosis of being gluten intolerant. Although others have similar problems and struggle with weight gain I can't seem to find any reference to the reason this happens. I am surprised that since being gluten free the weight has not dropped off me because I don't eat any GF products (eg bread, pasta, cakes, biscuits), chocolate, sweets or other goodies. I stick to eating non-processed food which consists of meat, fish, vegetables and fruit and I exercise nearly every day. Even before diagnosis I very rarely ate bread, pasta etc as it made me feel ill. Since I have been seeing a dietician I have kept a food diary and now weigh my food. I am trying very hard to lose weight as I am far too heavy. I have never been a great eater so do not understand the weight gain or the inability to lose it. However, I do accept there may be individual reasons that are not related to our diagnosis that may explain why a person may have weight problems.
If I have missed any explanation please can someone refer me to it. Thank you!
