i would love any advice or tips on getting fitter and losing the weight and maybe gaining some muscle.
I would like to know what you normally eat on a daily basis, as it would help further in the problem. As much as I try to limit my consumption of gluten, the "gluten free" substitutes are still carbs that are causing your blood sugar to spike. Usually when you eliminate wheat and gluten, it's usually to eliminate the food group together, not to substitute it for an equivalent.
In terms of fitness, the most efficient approach is to do weights, keeping protein intake high, and not worry about the cardio (if you like to do it, go ahead, but shouldn't feel like a chore). There are many programs out there that will get you started in terms of gaining strength, but they will all lead you to the same goal; It depends on what available resources you have (gym membership, home equipment, money, etc).
