My name is Doreen. My daughter and I were diagnosed with Celiac in 2008.We have maintained a gluten free lifestyle but not without challenges.Living gluten free requires commitment and an incredible amount of discipline.It has brought about a creative side in me but It has also increased my dress size about 4 sizes.I have an insatiable appetite and was always hungry! I began to create gluten free meals that were mouth watering but it wasn’t helping my weight. The more I cooked, the bigger I got and the harder it was to stop eating. I became consumed with food. I decided to join weight watchers and started to lose the weight very slowly. Then there is my daughter who weighs about 100 pounds! what a dilemma! My task was to create low fat meals for me and high calorie meals for her. So I compromised. I decided I would make healthy,balanced, and wholesome meals that are gluten/wheat free without all of the extra calories. Creating “balanced” gluten free meals is not easy but it is worth it. I am down 15 pounds and my daughter is up 10 pounds. Looks like our digestive tracts are on track. I feel inspired and hope that I can inspire you too on your journey to a gluten free lite life.
