Poll on weight gain/weight loss. I lost 7 lbs in less than 2 months on the GF/DF diet, mostly because I noticed a severe decrease in food cravings. I have to remind myself to eat now. I guess gluten really is addictive. I expected to gain weight once the D improved. But my diet is much healthier too.

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

I wasn't quite sure how to respond to this poll, because I had a bad malabsorption problem, (and a lot of small intestinal damage), so I was still losing weight after I started the diet. It took me a long time to reach remission, (a year and a half), but after I finally achieved remission, then I gained all my weight back, (and then some). IOW, I wasn't sure if you actually meant after starting the diet, or if you really meant after reaching remission, (I decided that you probably meant the latter). Soooooooo, I selected the third poll option.

I've lost weight while eating 3 meals a day plus snacks (no loss of appetite here) since going GF/DF/SF/EF/CF (7 months now). I don't need multi-vitamins as Tex has just mentioned to increase your metabolism..............I have it naturally. Of course, I lost 18 pounds prior to finding this great website. Since adding some grains in the last month, I am beginning to hold my own...........praise the Lord! Ginny

I have lost 20 pounds on a GF/DF/YF diet. I eat plenty and have no issues with hunger. This was odd as I am on steroids which normally result in weight gain

I have lost 27 pounds since I went GF/DF/SF/EF.

Now, that I'm in remission and have been so for a couple of months, my weight has not increased.
