Newly Diagnosed, looking for protein powder recommendation

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I was diagnosed last Monday with Celiac disease and am in the process of trying to get adjusted.  I've been having some trouble keeping my protein intake up and I've been going to start taking whey protein.  The one I'm looking at is sold at walmart and is called "Six Star 100% Whey Protein".  The label says that it is Gluten Free but the ingredients list "L-Glutamine" and also states that it is "Processed in a facility that also process wheat...".  Should I use this protein or should I keep looking for something else?  If I should keep looking does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks.

Thank you so much psawyer.  I hope you folks don't mind but I'm going to have quite a few questions as these is brand new to me and a bit of an adjustment.  I've had stomach issues all my life and it's just now at the age of 38 that I get diagnosed.

Thanks again for the info.

Personally I sould look for one that doesn't have that warning.  You may also want to look into Hemp protein. Whey is a dairy product and being newly diagnosed you may not tolerate dairy well.

Hemp went to the gutter recently with CC issues. They are making way to much of it with the canibis/hemp craze on roataion with wheat. Only ONE brand certifies gluten free, and 2 out of 5 containers I got from them were clean and tested gluten free........so I would avoid hemp for now unless you but Just Hemp Foods AND TEST your cansister.

Avoid whey for now -_- the stuff is going to be hard on and many have issues with various dairy proteins due to damaged intestines.
Look for plant based ones Blends Nutra Key -V-pro and MRM Veggie Elite are good, I also like pure proteins like Julian Bakery Pegan Cinnamon Twist (pumpkin seed), Julian Bakery Pegan (Sancha Inchi, taste a bit like roasted peanuts), Jarrow Pumpkin seed protein (very high in zinc, dark, gritty but AWSOME for recovery and before bed), And I use Naked Pea unflavored to make protein crackers and in cooking. Julian bakery also makes grain free breads low in carbs and high in proteins and fats that are great for body builders. And they have egg white and beef protein isolates if you feel the need to go hardcore bulking. These are what I have been using. Since your new you might want to read over the newbie 101 section. and I got a list of foods, but you should look at whole unprocessed meals for now with simple ingredients, if you want good building ones go for baked chicken/fish over greens, omelettes, soups with roast cuts in it. and veggies etc. I do ketogenic diet and body building myself, but have to avoid meats do to pancreatic enzyme issues and digesting meats.

If you do not have time/money to get all new pots/pans ect. Omelette makers, steamers, grill plates for the microwave are available from nordicware, and you can foil line baking dishes, and crockpot liners for your crockpot to prevent contamination.

You don't need to replace all your pots and pans. You would want to replace any that are scratched like enamel or teflon but pans that can be washed clean can be kept as can plates and silverware. You do want a new cutting board and a new strainer for stuff like pasta.
