InterestsLearning and help others when we can.<br /><br />We both enjoy spending time with our family, working out and running our store. We both enjoy travelling and can't wait to do more of ....eventually.
Perhaps mini meals all day long, every 2-3 hours. Sounds like your metabolism is working a-ok. Keep your good fats high to help keep you fuller longer, protein intake should be high and keep your carbs to your fruits and vegetables if possible. Keep the mini meals balanced to help stave off sugar cravings and drink plenty of water to help you keep full.????? Hope this helps some!
If you're looking for a safe gluten-free whey protein to drink try EAS. They are one of the very few products on the market that are completely gluten-free. I have personally checked this out for a client who has celiac disease.
Another safe protein - a gainer style protein shake that is completely gluten free is Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice. All flavours are safe for celiac patients and people whom prefer a gluten-free healthy lifestyle.
In the event that you are interested you may wish to check out EAS's whey protein - it is completely gluten free and smooth to take. It's inexpensive too! You can find it online or in store almost anywhere. As for NOW foods - they are a remarkable company, very reputable and deliver amazing products for middle of the row price!
Found some product that are completely gluten free and safe muscle building or gaining products.
EAS's line of whey protein is completely gluten free and relatively inexpensive compared to other protein powders that are not gluten free. Also, we found a weight gainer in the Ultimate Nutrition line called muscle juice that is also gluten free. Their maltodexrin is derived from corn. Again, this product is not as expensive as traditional gainers....and apparently one of the best tasting gainers on the market today. As for EAS - well, you may be sacraficing some sweetness and taste ...but worth your it in the end.
Just so you know L-Glutamine helps the body repair, our bodies simply do not produce enough of it, and even less as we age.....this is why it's been helping. By you taking it at night is the best thing you can do for yourself, as the body naturally repairs itself while we sleep. Cudo's to you!
Now as for sugar craving??? Couldn't tell ya, you might be getting less craving due to your diet and eating patterns? As for boosting the muscular system and hormonal system - how long has it been since you got a cold or flu, while taking L-Glutamine???? Probably been a while as it also boost your immune system!
There is a product on the market called Eload, it is completely gluten free, so is there emmend. These are electrolyte balancers and help with rehydration for high intesity sports. Very much recommended.
We are currently looking into Eload - triathletes, cyclist, runners use this drink to stay hydrated through marathon's and the taste is soft. Helps with recovery and electrolyte balances. Not very expensive either. Great to use during a weight training session also.
Hope to have the official word from the supplier in the next 72 hrs.
If ever you need nutritional information on a product, let us know and we can obtain it from the supplier. EAS has confirmed that their protein 100% protein blend is gluten free and relatively inexpensive compared to most other brands on the market today - including the leading brands.
I have their label if your interested, simply let us know.

Look into Vega protein powder - it is used by one of Canada's top triathlete professionals. They claim : no aminal products, no corn, no dairy, no egg, no fillers, no gluten, no soy, no wheat, no sugar, no yeast or wheat. They also claim to be preservative free, sweetener free and GMO, herbicide and pesticide-free. They come in regular, berry or chocolate flavours and are best mixed into a smoothie with fruit. I have to warn you though, you get what you pay for with this product...it is pricy in most stores. DO NOT EAT THEIR BARS THOUGH.....I checke the ingredients list and organic wheat grass is amongst this whole food bar.....
Optimum Nutrition's label does apprear to be gluten free, but tastes horrible. It's also semi soy based. I'm looking into Iso-Pro and Iso-Lean to be certain that they too are gluten free and taste considerable better and less expensive.
Continue on your bodybuilding diet of high protein, vegetables and introduce high fat to fill you up longer and supply your body with good healthy fats which are good all round for your body.
Good sources include:
Olive oil, coconut oil, 3-6-9 oil, salmon etc.
Stear clear of proteins that contain glutamine peptides as in most cases they are derived from wheat. Your top quality proteins such as isolates still have peptides in them and are therefore not gluten free. Be cautious with weight gainers also. I'm researching protein powders to be sure they are safe enough for people with Celiac Disease.
