Most people who have Celiac disease don’t know they have it; and then there are those who don’t have it but still can’t tolerate gluten. I meet these folks because, unfortunately, many gluten-free products are way higher in calories and refined carbs (sugars) than their gluten form. Thus, slim people diagnosed with Celiac often start putting on weight when they start eating gluten-free; and overweight people with Celiac often start to gain even more weight.
It is absolutely possible to eat right, eat well AND enjoy it . . . AND lose weight if you have Celiac disease. Don’t use it as an excuse to not get to and maintain a healthy weight.
Here’s a reference sheet that we provide to clients.
