Energy Levels: from on 2001-12-05
I sity in the UK and been reading your site with interest as I am medically diagnosed coeliac by jejunal biopsy. There are several points I might chip in on, but, a major thing for me is can you recommend how I can modify my diet so as to increase my energy levels [but not increase my wieght]. I eat fish rather than meat. I love veg, fruits, and any pure food which appeals.
Thanking you in advance and look forward to your reply.

HTML>Fish, potato, rice, veg, fruit provide an excellent diet.
If your weight is low or you are losing weight, try adding a little olive oil to your diet to increase its energy levels.
(don't add more sugar, pure starch or sweet drinks)
If you feel lacking in energy shortly after a meal, but recover later, you may be eating too much sugar and refined starch in flour, biscuits, bread etc.
If you feel short of energy, but are putting on weight, try a program of exercises to gradually build up stamina, but also consult your doctor.
