Quinoa does need to be washed, it has a natural pesticide which will cause you some reaction if not washed properly. You might be racting to that and not the grain itself.

If you're talking about the time immediately before a race (as opposed to carbo loading days prior) then about an hour or two before the race something like a slice of bread, an energy bar or pretzels (gluten-free naturally). If you’re really serious about it you can have an energy gel about 15 minutes before the race on top of that. I find a 10K too short to justify having another gel during the race itself, Gatorade and water are sufficient.


I try and avoid fats right before running, so for instance the peanut and chocolate flavored energy gels don’t sit well with me, but you need to experiment and find your own routine.

I’d experiment with these items during your usual workouts, testing how you feel with different combinations and pre-workout timing. Don’t eat or do something on a race day that you haven’t had before, it’s much easier to have a bad surprise than a good one.

In Topic: Workouts Causing Irregular Bleeding?

I don't know anything specific about that, but perhaps a vitamin deficiency due to the celiac disease (B12, K?) is causing low platelet count or other clotting condition, which can cause bleeding. Depending on how strenuous the exercise is, your blood pressure can almost double which would make you more prone to bleeding.

Perhaps a platelet count and general blood screening would yield some information.

There are gluten free energy bars, the ones I've had so far are Perfectly Simple (by ZonePerfect), Pure organic, ThinkThin, ProBar and ProMax.

I haven't conducted an extensive study into every flavor, you should verify each one individually by label and by eating only one kind a time to see your actual reaction.


Have you really tried all the carbs? There are quite a few of them... Quinoa, amaranth, teff, oats (has to be certified gluten-free though, not just any oats), sorghum, tapioca, corn, beans, legumes, and plain old rice.

You will probably have to prepare it all yourself since restaurants in general can’t be trusted. I’ve gotten quite decent at making my own bread out of these things, most of which I never heard of before becoming gluten intolerant.
