Having just been diagnosed with celiac disease I am now in a bit of a tough position sport wise.

Before my diagnosis my diet on the day of a football match (I referee the game here in the UK) consisted mainly of Cereal, pasta and other high carb wheat based foods.

Obviously now I can't do this and while I have been eating the gluten-free versions I have found that my energy levels have dropped hugely and I am getting tried far too quickly during matches.

I was lucky today that I managed to go 70 minutes before I started to feel my legs go weak on me because I didn't have enough reserve in my body to keep going. However in the past it's been sometimes 10 minutes into the match and I've suddenly felt that drop in energy.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what food stocks I could use in order to maintain and increase those energy levels. Also what drinks can I have for before during and after the match? Water is pretty much uselss to get me going although it does refresh the body and apparently these energy drinks have gultens in them so my main source of fluid is out at present.

Thanks

I drink Gatorade and Propel or Powerade...all of which are gluten free

Try eating something like cashews, peanuts, an apple with peanut butter...these are high in fat and calories and give alot of energy...I eat these throughout games...also sunflower seeds are good

Eggs give you protein and are good to have as well...

Hope this helps :D

I will certinally give them a go.

Must admit I am not a fan of peanuts, but I will give them a shot as I always react to Sunflower seeds (and oil).

Bit of a tough balance at the moment trying to eat the right foods and alsy keep my weight down to maintain match fitness but with the end of the season just a few weeks away I can at least use the summer to adjust.

If you don't like peanuts and that kind of thing then try something else don't force anything down...

Yogurts are good too(make sure they are gluten-free) I eat Yoplait which will not hide anything....

Ensure has high calorie and high nutrients in their drinks....

Meats are a good source of protein....

There are gluten free breads and cereals as well if that is the kind of thing you are looking for but are not the best for energy unless you have some sort of protein with it.

If you need more info just let me know :D

Meat isn't an option for me, been veggie for years and I'm not likely to revert back.

However I have been eating the gluten-free breads and cereals for months now, even before my diagnosis, and find them better than regular cereals, so I will look to replace with those. Protien wise I will have to find some alternitive source to aid the carbs.

I like your new logo. As your proteins used to be met by gluten and as you are a vegetarian, beans pulses and if you can stand them, nuts & seeds, are probably the main ways to go. Some may need soaking first (and then rinsing) before cooking. Lentils have a texture I enjoy, some Indian dishes have lentils in them (I think they are called dhansak).

I need to do more of this, myself.

Be guided by labels of drinks (or make up your own). If you get stuck with brands in the UK, the UK section of the forum is a good place to quiz us other locals about any such thing, I could ask for you at a shop or two if you're not near suitable ones.

Have you got lists of suitable foods, products and ingredients?

May the best teams win!

Exeter isn't too bad for shop's there are a couple which I can get ingrediants from. Annoyingly it now involves me having to learn to cook my own food, before hand I could chuck something in the microwave and no problems.

I haven't got my suitable food list yet because I am being refered to a dietician who will be able to go into the diet in more depth, so at the moment I am having to grab around in the dark a bit in order to make do. I know I am still getting gluten shots because of some of the food I am eating, but just by taking out breads, cereal and pasta it has made a diffrence.

Here is a link to lists about forbidden foods, safe foods, and other things to be aware of.

Is this a celiac dietician you are going to see? I had many people tell me I could have Spelt(which I can't its a form of wheat) so make sure they don't tell you anything bogus.

Also does anyone in your house still eat gluten containing foods? If you have a spouse make sure if they eat gluten they mouthwash or brush their teeth before kissing you because of getting gluten ingested.

Their are high protein bars that are available some of which are gluten free. In my previous posts I mentioned some foods, hopefully some of which will help. If you eat veggies before a game make sure you add something with protein in their to give you energy....Good luck :D

    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.
