How much weight will I lose because of Celiac Disease?

Question by Corinne L: How much weight will i lose because of celiac?
I’m 15 years old and I was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I now have to go on a gluten-free diet for the rest of my life and I can not have any wheat, AT ALL. How much weight do you think I will lose in the first month or two?

My friend got it about the same age as you. She lost probably 20 pounds overall, but she was a little heavier, too.

You’ll probably lose a little bit of weight, but as long as you get all the nutrients you need, you’ll be fine! 🙂
