My wife has been diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, because of her thyroid. Not celiac, just intolerant. So to honor her I agreed to go on a gluten-free diet with her. We started about 9 months ago. I've lost 25 pounds and she's lost 12 (though to be at a good weight for her, she wants and needs to lose another 10-15 pounds.) She feels her thyroid condition keeps her from losing weight easily (she works out for an hour or so 3 to 4 times a week she's 43.) I feel like the weight loss is mainly from not eating breads, pancakes, etc. But maybe it's simply not having gluten. Anyone else dealing with gluten issues? I do find alot of gluten-free foods in the store seem to be lousy in terms of fiber, protein and anything good. Find myself being much more label-intensive when shopping!
