There is a really good group in LA. It's a yahoo group, and they meet about once a month in various places. I am going to see what I can do to get you hooked up with them, if you think that could help?

In Topic: Grrrrr Powerade

17 July 2012 - 08:28 AM

I am sorry to hear this. I think that these replenishment drinks are best when you have them during or after your workout. I would stay away from powerade if you don't really like it, but I would also suggest that you rehydrate immediately after your workout with your chosen electrolyte drink. And you are right, after a lot of sweating you DO need more than water. And, if you wait hours before using a sports drink, it takes much longer to recoup and your system feels much much worse.

I am a fan of gatorade. I also have taken to sucking on clif shot blocks. Gu also makes a "chomp" which is another one of those solid electrolye sqaures.

There is also something called infinit - in which you can completely customize your own sports drink. If you google it, infinit nutrition should be one of the first links. That way you can control exactly what goes in - how much sugar & electrolyes, how strong the flavor, caffiene (if you want it), protein (if you want it). It's a pretty cool concept.

Hope you find something that works!!

In Topic: Why Do Reactions Get Stronger And Other Intolerances Pop Up?

I don't know why either, but know you are not alone. I hate how I feel thatI am just getting more and more sensitive to more and more things. I used to be able to eat things that had flax or gluten free oats, but now they wreak havoc on my system. :angry:

I wish there was a way to stop it. It's hard enough eliminating gluten, and for me, dairy.

In Topic: Flax Meal

I second Adalaide in that you just have to figure out what works for you. For me, I have to avoid flax meal because it makes me bloated and gassy like you said. Sucks because flax is in a lot of gluten free stuff now, but oh well...! I'll cross my fingers for you though!!

In Topic: Anyone Else Unable To Eat Fruits And Veggies And A Whole Bunch Of Other Food?

I have colitis, and when it flares up I can't tolerate fruits or veggies. Sometimes lots of raw fruits/veggies can trigger a colitis flare up. I also can't handle stuff like flax or inulin. Beans are pretty much out, and I harbor an almost irrational fear of lentils. I can have wine sometimes, other times it messes me up BAD.

But ultimately for me, the celiac is one issue and that is focused on the small intestine. I can tell you that I went from being completely flat when I was diagnosed to being all back to normal as indicated by an endo last year. The colon is a whole other issue. I am no doctor but I might think your issues could be due to a sensitive colon, not the small intestine?
