Hi! I've been diagnosed with Celiac, SIBO, and I am unable to tolerate egg, casein, or any kind of protein powder (I've tried, rice, whey, and pea protein as well). My struggle is finding foods that I can eat while still having enough energy to get through my day since I am an athlete. 

I get major brain fog around 2-3pm, and I need to be high fat/high protein. I get major sugar cravings, and I get scared of eating because I'm not sure if it will go right through me, leave me bloated, or with awkward gas. I'm always on the go, and I am currently healing from 2 dislocations (probably EDS since I am hypermobile). On top of all that I absolutely hate cooking, and my attempts at meal prepping haven't been too successful. I either can't get to the food in time before it goes bad, or I feel like I am constantly running to the store to buy new food. 

Any suggestions on what I should eat?

You are sick!  I am going to say this bluntly -- forget being an athlete until you have healed.  I can say it, because I am very active for a person my age.  This is the time for you to slow down temorarily and do everything in your power to heal.  

Going gluten free will help you heal from celiac disease but healing from SIBO may require a different diet.  What did your doctor recommend?  

I  am going to be blunt again -- you need to learn to prepare and cook healthy whole foods.   We have lots of members who were just like you!  Guess what?  They have learned to cook!  

Check our our Newbie 101 section under "Coping".  I think you will find valuable tips there.  ? welcome to the forum!

Things to eat?  Well-cooked, easy-to-digest foods like stewed meats, fish, veggies, oils, and fruit until your gut is healed.   I could not eat dairy or eggs before my diagnosis.  Now I can eat them easily!

As far as protein shakes go... Have you tried Vega one? It's the ONLY protein shake that sits well with me because it is certified gluten free! 20g of protein in each scoop, you really can't go wrong with it. It's pretty cheap, too. A jug of it (20 scoops) is around 20 dollars. I'm an athlete too, and so I feel your pain.

Vega is an excellent protein drink. It's gluten, soy, and dairy free, and it tastes great!  It should only be used when you are not getting enough protein, not as a replacement for food.

However, I agree with @cyclinglady that right now it's more important to get better, so learning how to cook some whole foods might be a good idea. I cook for several days so I all I have to do is warm up in the microwave.
