Swimming And gluten-free Diet

2 posts in this topic

Hi!

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!

What are you eating for protein? Turkey, fish, and shrimp are very high sources of protein. I've been eating a lot of fish and shrimp lately and I've been noticing improvements. For example, I don't get as hungrey as mush as I used to and I don't feel wiped out like I used to after soccer games. I also find that fruit smoothies give me lots of energy.
