In Topic: Gluten Free Fat Burners

25 February 2010 - 12:00 AM

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.

In Topic: Whey Protein Shake

Check out Nectar by a company called Syntrax. I've been using Nectar for a month and love it! No stomach issues. Also, it is by far the best tasting protein I've tried, and I've tried many through years of bodybuilding. I got it in individual packets, so I make them anywhere I can get water. I just got a 40% off coupon code from a friend who's dad works there, if anyone wants to order with it.

In Topic: How To Gain Weight

24 February 2010 - 11:20 PM

Great advise has been given so far... protein shakes, peanut butter... and more protein and carbs. Personally, I like brown rice since it doesn't take much to add up the calories and carbs... add some cheese! You just need to be taking in more calories than you are burning each day. 1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight is really for gaining muscle, but will help in this situation.

Protein shakes can be a huge help since you can eat them anywhere at any time. Add in a shake or two per day. Make it with milk and peanut butter- I'd bet it doubles your daily caloric intake. There are lots of bodybuilding/weight gainers out there. BUT be careful and check directly with the manufacturer to ensure that it is gluten free. I have a friend who works for Syntrax who has a weight gainer protein. They assure that it is gluten free. PM me, I may be able to obtain a coupon code if you/anyone wants.

In Topic: Any Ideas On Stabilizing The Weight Once Going Gluten Free?

24 February 2010 - 11:09 PM

Unless you have some other serious unknown problem, your body is just like anyone else's when it comes to weight. Calorie intake vs. calories burned.

Your current diet looks really healthy and depending on your portions, you could be at a calorie deficit.

It seems a lot of people lose weight when going gluten free, 'cause they don't know what to eat and consciously watch everything they are eating carefully. Once I figured out exactly what I could eat again, I kept my weight or gained some.

I'd try tracking your calories for a week and see where you really are. Maybe add in some brown rice to get some more carbs.

In Topic: Test Say Positive/No Symptoms ?

24 February 2010 - 10:59 PM

My 13 yr old sons labs came back low positive but he has no symptoms should he still go on a gluten diet??

A couple weeks later... I'll reiterate, YES

I'd suggest an endoscopy also, just to be 100% sure.

I didn't show ANY symptoms when I was 19, but was tested because it runs in my family and my sister was just diagnosed. It took a few years, but my symptoms finally showed. In the mean time, my body was not healthy and I was promoting cancer. I'd get him adjusted to the gluten free diet now rather than waiting until he is in bad shape and has symptoms.
