Gluten Free Fat Burners
0

8 posts in this topic

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.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
