Protein Drink And Help With Weight Gain
0

16 posts in this topic

Hello, can anyone recommend a protein drink that is gluten-free, dairy free, soy free and nut free? I've heard there are some that help promote weight gain but have not been able to find any. Is there a reliable place to order produts like this one line?

Thanks again,

Becky

I think Rainbow Light has a rice based protein powder. Don't know if it fits all the other requirements, but it may well since I have the same no no's.

I'm adding onto this I wonder if there are protein/weight gain options for folks who don't do the things you said, AND don't do grains.....

Ensure and Boost are gluten-free (except the chocolate malt ones) and come in "Plus" versions that are about 350 cals each. They also come in "high protein" versions.

If you want a protein powder, Genisoy makes choco, vanilla, and strawberry flavors.

Ensure and Boost are good products but Ensure contains milk and Boost contains casein. We tried the Boost and then found out after getting sick that my daughter has sensitivities to those foods. I will check into the Genisoy protein powder. Since it has "soy" in the name I wonder if it contains soy? Thanks!

Living Harvest hemp protein and Nutri biotic rice protein. I found both of them at my health food store.

But neither have a lot of calories. THe rice is only 58 calories per tbsp.The hemp is only 65.

I had trouble finding protein powders without soy, etc too. IMO the hemp has a strong flavor, but some like it. The hemp seeds taste a little like cashews.

Yikes, duh, yeah Genisoy powder would contain soy. Sorry, I gave you my response after a loooong night at work and obviously my brain wasn't functioning :blink:

Hmm, I really can't think of any way to get a substantial amount of protein in a beverage without soy, dairy, or casein. Hmm....

Sorry I'm not much help! I knew that Boost and Ensure were "lactose-free" but I didn't know much else. Hopefully some others will come up with good suggestions. Would you consider protein bars, or does it need to be a beverage?

Hey Lauren, I appreciate you trying to help us! A protein bar would be fine too. Any type of high protein would be great. After finding out a person is Celiac and losing alot of weight, does the weight ever come back?

Thanks,

Becky

I use rice or hemp seed protein powder in fruit smoothies with coconut milk. You can easily get those things quite packed with calories that way. :-)

Try designer whey products, I emailed and they told me their products are gluten-free not sure on the other stuff you need but they have a web site to check out.

Rice and Pea protein are the only ones I can think of. Well besides meat products, but I'm sure a steak shake wouldn't work too well. :)

whey is a milk product.

I did a google search for gluten-free protein powder and came up with a rice protein powder by NutriBiotic. Check their website www.nutribiotic.com

I would like to have a protein powder to fall back on for hypoglycemia problems - it keeps well in my purse in a small plastic container and all I have to do is add water and shake (at least, that's the way it worked back when I could use the whey products, which I can't now).

Thanks for all your replies! We did buy the Nutribiotics Rice base protein drink and it seems alright. If anyone ever sees a high calorie one please let me know.

What about the Ensure Chocolate Milk Shake flavor? It doesn't say "chocolate malt" anywhere...but when I was looking at them in the store I didn't even see the chocolate malt one, so I wasn't sure if the chocolate milk shake one was malt or not. Thanks!

Does Boost have one only one chocolate flavour? Or is there chocolate and chocolate malt? I used to drink them all the time because of my busy/weird schedule, and now and then they'd still be a help. The chocolate was the only one I ever liked though.

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
