  1. Thanks for the advice but Juice Plus is most definitely gluten free. The video that comes with it talks about how these pills can benefit people with celiac. And, I could feel the difference in just one week of taking them and now its been almost 3 months and feel a lot better. I recommend you start taking them too, big advocate! I finished my half marathon! Pretty miserable but I finished and will never do it again. My body hated me for a good week. So now I'm just doing shorter runs and now training for the 3 day breast cancer walk. So my body likes me again Thanks again everyone for all the advice.
  2. Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I figured it was too early to be pushing my body like I am but I signed up for these runs prior to the celiac diagnosis. My doctor said that going forward with the runs and keeping my active life will not deter from my GI healing but it just may be more challenging than a person with a healthy small intestine. I'm excited to get to where you are with your exercise program and still feel great. Thanks again!
  3. Well I have been gluten free and lactose free since the end of january so now I am not eating a lot of processed food. By clean diet, do you have any food or drink suggestions besides just eating Gluten-Free?
  4. Hello! I am 28 and newly Celiac as of January, so I have been Gluten-Free and lactose free for almost three months. I have been iron deficient for over 10 years. I haven't felt 100% yet but definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel some days. One issue I wanted to bring up is muscle fatigue during exercise. I was a college tennis player and would cramp up almost every match, no matter how much I trained/stretched, how many bananas I ate or hydrating drinks I drank prior to the match. I started training for my first half marathon in january and just finished a 10 mile race for training purposes. Every time I push myself hard for a run or if the run is longer than 6 miles, I would be completely out of commission the rest of the day. I slept the whole rest of the day after the 10 mile race last weekend and still felt 'off' the next day. Primary symptoms: muscle fatigue, dehydrated, tight muscles and just overall tired. I am very active, play on a tennis league and volleyball league during the week on top of working full time and running or walking after work prior to my leagues. I don't always react as extreme as noted above but I definitely do not feel as in shape as I should be with all of my exercising. My vitamins and minerals all came back WNL. I take Juice Plus, B12 supplement and benefiber daily on top of a well-balanced diet. Wondering if anyone else has any of my same concerns and issues and if you have a solution. Also, any thoughts on malabsorption? Please let me know if I am not making sense, I may not be expressing my questions well. I have many... Thanks for reading!
