I am a varsity swimmer who has celiac...we have just entered the taper part of our season and our big meets are jsut a couple weeks away. I have been getting faster times as I should in the taper but I am more tired and wiped after our 3-4 k practices then i was after a 10k practice. I don't seem to have any energy anymore and with the meets upcoming I really want to try to figure out what is going on. My diet hasn't changed, and I am still taking in as many carbs and protein as possible...lost of rice pasta and toast with peanut butter! But I was hoping that someone might be able to give me some place to start/get the doctor to test for...I didn't think that low energy coule be correlated to the celiac diet but any advice would be wonderful...this is the first I have read about celiac and sports---seems the information on celiac athletes is rather limited, and reading these posts has definitely been of help. THanks!
