When I started SCD (which is gluten and sugar free), I lost 5 pounds. However, once I was on the diet for about
6 months, I gained it back, plus an additional 10 pounds
. I think it was just a matter of healing my gut so that it could absorb nutrients better. Almond butter and cheese are two things that helped me gain weight.
