  1. can a person gain weight w/the gluton free foods..i sure need to put some pounds on..would you please, please let me know….

  2. @Irene


    While I did lose a few pounds when I first switched over to the GF diet in 2008, I quickly gained it back after figured out all of the comfort food I could still eat. I don’t even buy that many GF alternatives – I mostly skip out on breads and such – and I’ve still managed to gain weight since then, and I’m certainly not trying to!

  3. @Irene: Yes, many gluten-free foods are actually higher in calories than their gluten counterparts. Make sure you’re getting enough protein as well, but make sure to talk to your doctor or nutritionist about healthy ways to bulk up. Sometimes underlying conditions can be causing weight loss (thyroid issues, etc) so make sure to rule those out, but you should be able to put on a few pounds!

  4. Irene — it’s all about calories in and calories out — eat more calories than you expend and you are almost guaranteed to gain weight, unless you have a medical condition that is preventing weight gain.

  5. I would say definitely yes!
    Most gluten free foods are made with rice flour which is higher in carbohydrate that wheat by aproximately double. So enjoy and consider yourself lucky!

  6. I have tried Udis bread, and it’s not bad. I can’t eat it though, because there are corn products in it. I switched to Rudis Original bread. Yes, be careful of carbs. A GF diet can be full of them amd sugar if one is not paying attention. This type of diet has very little fiber, is low in protein, and getting enough iron, B-Vitamins and so forth is also tricky. Without enough protein and easily digested fiber, weight can be packed on. A lot of is that you need to eat more vegetables and fruits, drink more water, and find lean protein options. Sometimes, you think you’re packing on weight, when the issue is that you need to go to the loo more often; fecal matter left in too long can cause discomfort, fluid retention, toxic buildup and weight gain. So, move those bowels!
