I am newly diagnosed with celiac disease. I strength train 4 times a week and do cardio 5 days a week. I was in the habit of taking a hydroxycut 1/2 hour before my strength training. It really helped me get through my workout and then be able to do cardio. I contacted the manufacturer and was told that hydroxycut contains gluten. Does anyone know of something that will give me a boost to help me out through the workout I do not drink coffee or tea. So the only caffeine I get is from the fat burner. HELP

I haven't logged in recently so have just found your query. I have found that Now Foods have lots of nutritional supplements that are gluten-free. They clearly label all of their products. I use their Whey Protein and Liquid Multi-Vitamin. They do have a diet aid called "Energy" that contains 42 mg of caffeine. I also use caffeine as a strength-training adjunct. I drink a cup of coffee about 1/2 hour before hitting the gym. It really does help you work out longer and harder.

I don't like diet pills as I have seen first hand how dangerous they can be. Try sublingual B12 and ZICO coconut water for hollistic energy boosting. The B12 sends me tearing through the guy in the am.

Well that sucks. I am sorta a bit curious how Gluten is a fta burner? I notice many fat burners contain cellulose and I am guessing that's a filler they use.

I really can't see in the ingredient list which may be gluten or gluten derived, but I imagine they are just covering their backsides from any trouble especially since they had many ephedra related lawsuits initially!



Hydroxycut Ingredients
As one of the most popular dietary weight loss supplements in the U.S., Hydroxycut claims to help people lose up to 4.5 times more weight (when paired with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise) than diet and exercise alone.

However, despite clinical research that verifies Hydroxycut weight loss claims, patients' reports of serious Hydroxycut side effects triggered a massive FDA recall of various Hydroxycut products on May 1, 2009.

Currently, about one million ephedra-free Hydroxycut products are sold in the U.S. each year. Iovate Health Sciences Inc. (with bases in Canada and New York) makes and distributes all Hydroxycut products.

Ingredients in Hydroxycut
Although some of the ingredients in specific Hydroxycut products may vary, in general, a Hydroxycut ingredients list includes:

calcium
chromium
gymnema sylvestre (a tropical Indian herb)
green tea extract
hydroxycitric acid (which is extracted from tropical fruit and associated with causing liver problems)
hydroxygen plu
hydroxyTea
potassium
soy
white tea extract
Depending on the product, Hydroxycut may or may not contain caffeine as well.

Before ephedra (an herb known to have serious side effects) was banned in the U.S., original Hydroxycut products contained ephedra. Currently, however, ephedra is not contained on any new Hydroxycut ingredients lists.

I spoke with a supplement company called Syntrax a month ago about their products being gluten free. I ordered some protein, and they also sent my some samples of Fyre (a fat burner). I have yet to try it. I assume it is gluten free since we discussed gluten free in depth. I just reviewed the ingredients and they all are natural, so it should be gluten free. I'll try to remember to give an update when I try it.

I can tell you Atrophex is definitely NOT gluten free. I was doubled over last night from taking it. Hydroxycut didnt bother me. Im looking for a good fat burner too. Let me know if you get a good one! :)

Mike did you ever find out if the fat burner was gluten-free?

He has not Ben on this forum for 3 years so you probably won't get an answer from him.
