Gluten Free Fat Burners

8 posts in this topic

I am newly diagnosed with celiac disease. I strength train 4 times a week and do cardio 5 days a week. I was in the habit of taking a hydroxycut 1/2 hour before my strength training. It really helped me get through my workout and then be able to do cardio. I contacted the manufacturer and was told that hydroxycut contains gluten. Does anyone know of something that will give me a boost to help me out through the workout I do not drink coffee or tea. So the only caffeine I get is from the fat burner. HELP

I haven't logged in recently so have just found your query. I have found that Now Foods have lots of nutritional supplements that are gluten-free. They clearly label all of their products. I use their Whey Protein and Liquid Multi-Vitamin. They do have a diet aid called "Energy" that contains 42 mg of caffeine. I also use caffeine as a strength-training adjunct. I drink a cup of coffee about 1/2 hour before hitting the gym. It really does help you work out longer and harder.

I don't like diet pills as I have seen first hand how dangerous they can be. Try sublingual B12 and ZICO coconut water for hollistic energy boosting. The B12 sends me tearing through the guy in the am.

Well that sucks. I am sorta a bit curious how Gluten is a fta burner? I notice many fat burners contain cellulose and I am guessing that's a filler they use.

I really can't see in the ingredient list which may be gluten or gluten derived, but I imagine they are just covering their backsides from any trouble especially since they had many ephedra related lawsuits initially!

Hydroxycut Ingredients

As one of the most popular dietary weight loss supplements in the U.S., Hydroxycut claims to help people lose up to 4.5 times more weight (when paired with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise) than diet and exercise alone.

However, despite clinical research that verifies Hydroxycut weight loss claims, patients' reports of serious Hydroxycut side effects triggered a massive FDA recall of various Hydroxycut products on May 1, 2009.

Currently, about one million ephedra-free Hydroxycut products are sold in the U.S. each year. Iovate Health Sciences Inc. (with bases in Canada and New York) makes and distributes all Hydroxycut products.

Ingredients in Hydroxycut

Although some of the ingredients in specific Hydroxycut products may vary, in general, a Hydroxycut ingredients list includes:

calcium

chromium

gymnema sylvestre (a tropical Indian herb)

green tea extract

hydroxycitric acid (which is extracted from tropical fruit and associated with causing liver problems)

hydroxygen plu

hydroxyTea

potassium

soy

white tea extract

Depending on the product, Hydroxycut may or may not contain caffeine as well.

Before ephedra (an herb known to have serious side effects) was banned in the U.S., original Hydroxycut products contained ephedra. Currently, however, ephedra is not contained on any new Hydroxycut ingredients lists.

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.

Mike did you ever find out if the fat burner was gluten-free?

He has not Ben on this forum for 3 years so you probably won't get an answer from him.

    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up. 
    • Are you substituting something for the PPI?    I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work.   I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return.   If so, it makes sense to find something else to help with symptom control.   I don't know what products you have there.   We have Tums (calcium carbonate), Gaviscon (aluminum hydroxide with magnesium carbonate), Pepto and Kaopectate (same product), and Gas-X (simethicone).    I believe all of these can be taken with PPIs, but do check.    I don't know that Pepcid (Famotidine) can be mixed, but you could check that, too.   The Gas X really helps with the bloating and odd pains, as it breaks up the gas.  The Tums seems to help neutralize the acid and upset stomach / stomach pain.  These two are my mainstays.  You may have other products that could be as effective. Have you tried mixing bone broth with cornstarch or gluten-free flour to make a gravy?  Mix in some ground beef, chicken, or turkey, add some gentle veggies (carrots, or maybe a can of Chinese veggies?), a little bit of gentle spices for taste, and then put over gluten-free pasta or white rice.  Make a chicken sandwich with gluten-free bread.   Can you tolerate mayo?   Put a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and lemon juice on salmon, then coat with mayo and microwave.   Or mix some mayo with chicken or tuna for a chicken salad / tuna salad sandwich;  or eat just a scoop of it.   If you can tolerate dairy, Schar's newest version of table crackers are like saltines and are tasty.   If no dairy, try their breadsticks.  You could have either with soup or bone broth.   Schar's has enough fat to give you calories to help stave off weight loss, and you can add more by brushing a little butter on the crackers. You could try other casseroles with tuna or some lean ground hamburger.  Have you also looked at a possible new food intolerance?   I suffered for a few weeks before I figured out it was dairy for me.   Eliminating dairy wasn't enough.   I had to get rid of anything that might upset my stomach in order to start getting better.  I printed lists of low FODMAP, low acid foods, and low lectin foods, then selected only those foods that were on all 3 lists.   You might consider doing this with food lists that are right for you.  Hope this might spark some ideas!    
    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.
