FREE Webinar: Maintaining a Healthy Weight While Living Gluten-Free: The Importance of Physical Activity & Mindful Eating
Weight is a popular topic when it comes to questions about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet. While a sign of undiagnosed celiac disease can be weight loss, research has shown that this disease can impact overweight individuals, too. Further, many newly diagnosed celiacs experience the common unwanted reality of weight gain due to their small intestine now able to absorb more of the nutrients they are consuming.
