Hi there sugar; are you a celiac and, thanks a lot...
:wave: I'm on a gluten-free diet too. I'm afraid you're going to have to start doing almost all your own cooking. Cooking gluten-free isn't hard at all, but buying prepared foods is.

Don't worry about your weight - the Celiac disease was keeping you from absorbing nutrients, bust once your intestines have healed up a bit, you will start gaining naturally.

Some books for you:

[I]The Gluten-Free Gourment[/I] by Bette Hagman.
This has yummy recipes, and also a recipe for a GF flour mix that you can substitute 1/1 for wheat flour.

[I]Against the Grain[/I] by Jax Peters Lowell.
The writer seems like a really annoying person, but it does have some very good information. It's just that it ought to be subtitled, "How to use your dietary restrictions to alienate all your friends."

You'll also want to visit the Celiac Disease Foundation website. There is a popular diet called "Paleofood" or "Paleodiet" that is good for celiacs. Do a search on "Paleofood" and you should find plenty. Another good site about gluten intolerance in general is finerhealth.com.

My GI doctor says I do not have Celiac. My PCP doctor thinks I have a "mild" form of it. In any case, I can't digest wheat or oats.

People with true Celiac [B]must not eat: [/B]

Wheat
Rye
Barley
Seitan
Texturized Vegetable Protein
Spelt
Sprouted wheat / sprouted bread
Oats
Maltodextrin
Club
Durum
Bulgur
Einkorn
Semolina
Triticale

Things that are up for debate, so avoid them until you talk to your doctor:

Quinoa
millet
teff
Kamut (Kamut is a wheat but some people seem to be able to use it anyway.)

Flours and you can use:

Rice
Soy
Potato
Tapioca
Cornmeal
Cornstarch
Arrowroot
Legumes
Nuts
Buckwheat
