You and the others make sense, maybe I went too extreme, and I flushed something out of me, and now I'm sick because of it.
When you shed a lot of bodyfat at once, the bodyfat stores fat soluble vitamins and toxins. Shedding more than a couple of pounds of bodyfat in a
week will always overload the liver and kidneys and throw your blood chemistry out of whack. As the fat cells die, they release the toxins and
certain fat soluble vitamins they have been storing.
You need to be drinking TONS of water to help flush your kidneys, but you also need to keep the electrolytes in balance, so toss in a gatorade every
3rd or 4th glass.
Drink enough to make yourself urinate at least every 30-45 minutes until you start feeling better.
As others have said, supplement your celiacs diet with nuts, and lean meats. Linseed, and Omega oils will help.
It isn't all doom and gloom that you have dropped 30 lbs, it could be a good thing, just take every precaution, and get your system back in balance,
and try to not lose more than 5-8 lbs per week.
Be careful of Vitamins A, E, D, and K
while you are shedding weight, because those will already be
If you are a beer drinker, Redbridge is the best Gluten-Free beer by far. Beer is a great way to get some carbs and electrolytes, especially after
exercising. No kidding. Corn Tortillas can replace breads and other wraps in most cases, and they are Gluten Free. Don't assume things like beef
are Gluten Free. Taco Bell doesn't include their own beef on their gluten free menu, because of the 12% additives to their beef.
meats from the supermarket should be fine though. Atkins Diet, and South Beach diet plans are mostly carb free and therefore gluten free. At this
point though, it seems you actually need more carbs, not less. Ensure Drinks are gluten free, and they will help you get your calories and vitamins
If you need any help with Celiacs, feel free to PM me. My wife has been battling it for almost 5 years now, and she finally has her weight back to
about 100 lbs. Her Celiacs popped up during her second pregnancy. She didn't know about it, the baby was malnourished and came 3 months early, and
after the birth, she couldn't gain weight, and she got all the way down to 85 lbs before they diagnosed her and changed her diet. She is finally
feeling better, getting her energy back, and the baby is finally a healthy 4 year old now.
Toxins Released from fat loss.
Weight Loss pushes toxins into the bloodstream
Help removing toxins.
I forgot to add that certain supplements and medicines can help bind those toxins and remove them. Milk Thistle is very helpful in cleansing the
liver. Also, Mucinex is known to bind certain things (like phosphates) and flush them out of your system. Stick to whole foods and wholly organic
foods for awhile if you can, green tea, fresh fruits and vegetables (with the skin) contain yeasts that may help metabolize the toxins. Also, you
will need the pectin and fiber from the fresh fruits and vegetables because with major weight loss usually comes major constipation.
