Failed With Protein Supplements
0

5 posts in this topic

Well I did my research tried the most recommended in tis forum (i.e. Vega, Raw and Trader Joe's Hemp) all messed me up. I'm only a month into my gluten-free diet and diagnosed with IBS not Celiacs( endo biopsy negative) , but when I dont accidentally glutten myself I feel normal again. Thus i may have low tolerance for hemp or other grains/ seeds that I haven't quite pin pointed yet in addition to gluten. I want to gain weight lost, my resolution is: lots of eggs, greek yogurt, MEAT, and 4 protein filed big meals a day with hummus and avocado sanckings in between. Of corse with a weight lifting program when not gluttened will let you know how it goes. Im shooting for at least 20lb. Any tips appreciated.

I am an athlete with a very sensitive gleuten intolerance. the onlly protien suplement I have found to not give me problems is "fast digesting ISO-Z5" isolate protien. if taken with H2O there is only 140 cal. I take mine with milk and I double the recomended dose. recomended dose is 2 scoops per day. I take 2 scoops in am and 2 in pm. vit B-12, and a multi. they sem to be working pretty good as I have been doing thisfor one month now. BUT I follow a very strict gleuten free soy free diet and very sparing in the carb and casin dept.

When I say athlete I mean I am 43 yo. I have lived with this for about 1.5 years and am currently on a pretty heavy work out plan. I do a 5k brisk on monday, a 10k on wednesday, light (not lazy) 5k thursday, all those in A.M. In PM I work out monday thru thursday lifting. then I do a long run of 10 to 15 miles every saterday. I am not boasting I am just stating that you can do what I am if you maintain your discipline and not give up, but it will take time and set backs but you are worth the effort.

I'm only a month into my gluten-free diet and diagnosed with IBS not Celiacs( endo biopsy negative) , but when I dont accidentally glutten myself I feel normal again.

I was training for an ultramarathon when I got diagnosed. I lost about 8 Lbs (I think all muscle) and am not just slightly underweight (18.5 BMI). My personal decision is to wait until 2 months gluten-free and then to maintain a healthy weight for at least two weeks before I start training again. I'm just ending the 2-month period, so it's all about gaining a few more pounds for me, which is crazy hard. Then I'll ramp up really slowly. On the sport board, some people recommend waiting even longer after going gluten-free before undertaking any serious exercise.

Anyway, this is just my opinion. Although I totally get the folks who don't wait -- so frustrating not to be running right now. I just ordered my favorite gluten-free running fuel, just to make myself feel better and have it ready in case I manage to gain the weight soon.

By the way, have you tried rice protein? I eat Zing bars, and that's what they have. I can't seem to do almost any foods, but the rice protein in Zing bars seems just fine.

Hey Robert, can't do whey protein either not soy, intolerant to that too. I'll work on my profile next time I post, but it's up lifting to see all you can do, can't wait...

Hey Chaff, I used to run 5k 3x per week before I started going down. Now I'm not too interested in running but lifting weights as I want to gain weight; however, like you, I noticed my muscles getting weaker and recovery taking longer before I stoped. When I picked up lifting I would actually loose weight despite eating like a horse. This was before going gluten-free a month ago, I feel myself improving.

I dont react to rice maybe I'll give it a try later, thanks.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
