I'm only one week into being gluten free so still learning every day. I am used to taking whey protein and N.O. Explode (creatine, nitrus oxide and a bunch of crap) as my only suppliments. I confirmed that my gold standard whey is gluten free. I'm looking for a new pre-workout drink and was leaning towards trying the Jack3d. Any recommendations / feedback? How about any recommendations for gluten-free energy bars? Thanks!

Lara Bars are gluten-free http://www.larabar.com/

I just drink gatorade and water before my games and chocolate milk afterwards :)

For a good gluten free energy bar for working out try Purefit bars. I have only seen them at a gluten free store i go to but I know you can also buy them off their website. Check out the link. Best tasting gluten free bar I have tried and has 18 grams of protein in them.

Actual food works too: PB, almond butter, hard boiled eggs, deli meat, tuna, etc for protein and then fruit/dairy/grains for carbs.

Cold boiled potatoes a fav for me pre-run.

Those look good. I'm going to order a box from Amazon. Thanks for the suggestion.

There are a few things that I religiously take before my workouts:

- BIG Bowl of blueberries with about a cup of 0% fat Greek yogurt

- Green tea (two tea bags to make it strong)

- gluten-free protein shake

- AAKG (L-Arginine alpha-Ketoglutarate) It's a better substitute for N.O. Explode and will help give you those immediate pumps at the gym.

- Large glass of water

Don't fall for any of the Gatorade or Muscle Milk pre-work out claims. WAY too expensive in my mind.

I'm going to give that AAKG (L-Arginine alpha-Ketoglutarate) a try. It's the first ingredient in Jack3d. I think it's a good idea to keep the ingredients simple, plus I haven't taken a break from creatine in a while. By the way, how long did it take you to start putting on weight once you went gluten-free? I've worked out for years and get stronger but never could add lbs.

I have been on a gluten free diet for 5 years. It was tough in the beginning, but I have really gotten use to it - it's a very healthy diet.

When I was first diagnosed in 2006 at the age of 24 I weighed 184 pounds, and I'm 6"4". I was very skinny and looked sickly.

5 years later - I weigh 206 pounds. I got tired of everyone calling me skinny, so I joined a gym last year. Best move of my life.

I am extremely sensitive to gluten, so it was tough finding high quality protein products and workout supplements. Here are my recommendations:

Protein powder - Solgar Whey to go protein - excellent quality, 20grams of protein per serving. I buy it in larger quantities at Vitacost. Wegman's also sells it in smaller containers. I like the natural vanilla.

Preworkout - Jack3d Raspberry lemonade - awesome flavor. I only take 1-1.5 scoops before my workout. This product works!!!! I could hit the weights for an hour plus, and in the end, I'm not even tired.

Post workout - Proasis protein shots. Excellent taste. All natural and allergen free. 2.9 ounces has 25g of protein. Wegman's sell these as well.

Proetin bars - as stated above Purefit are awesome. Best if you buy by the box of 15, usually around $28 a box. Berry almond, Peanut Butter, and almond crunch are excellent.

Also, I buy the Organic food bar "Protein bars". These are soy & dairy free, and have 22g of protein per bar. Excellent taset, made from almond butter. Buy them by the box of 12 at Vitacost at around $25-$26 a box.

Add these into an additional 3 healthy mneals with lean meats, veggies and fruits, you'll be putting on lean muscle in a few weeks. I also take a multivitamin each day as well.

Hope this helps,

Tony

I'll keep you posted, but I just read about "Questbars" as another great high protein, gluten free bar. Their mixed berry sounds excellent. They are also really high in fiber. I just went on their website, and you can get 2 free samples of their bars.

I just completed the tour, and I requested my 2 free samples - it only took a minute. I'll let you know how they are once they arrive. I would suggest everyone do the same, the price is right:)

I pop a few or three raw eggs before the workout and a few after. Then throw in a little raw coconut with some cocoa mixed in with a bit of coconut oil as a chaser. Then it's meat and veggies a little later on. I was having some fruit as well but discovered today that by skipping the fruit I feel a lot better. Have gained a few pounds these last few weeks on this and all maximums have been climbing too. Keeping it all natural.

By the way, how long did it take you to start putting on weight once you went gluten-free? I've worked out for years and get stronger but never could add lbs.

It took me about 2 months to get "stable" after being glutened for years. After that, I re-evaluated how I looked at my dinner plate in the past. Once all of the fully gluten items were off the plate, I made room.... and slowly increased my LEAN protein intake at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you want to add muscle, I would suggest that you do the same.

Just try and eat as clean as possible (all natural and organic), and don't expect to add a pound overnight. Sometime, just a pound a month can add up over a 12 month period of time. Or if you're really pushing it, 1.5 pounds a month is 18 pounds. Pretty significant when you think about it.

Keep me posted. I thrive when I hear about others who have "dusted themselves off" after they know that gluten is the culprit that hinders our potential.

Defeat wheat!

Quest Bars are amazing. Some of the other bars mentioned here have like 30 grams of carbs and a ton of sugar which are the kind I used to ate before I knew better :D

I actually found them from an ad I saw here. Worth checking out for sure!

This is helpful! I was only diagnosed with celiac a week ago. I'm into heavy weight training and have spent years critiquing my diet to now have to intermingle the diet I love to do with a diet I have to do. Still feeling really uneducated and stressed about being gluten free until I am able to critique this too.

Having to part with my whey protein and the protein bars set in some serious separation anxiety! Ha. I did much research this past week and found that Perfect Nutrition Diesel Protein out of New Zealand is gluten free and contains most of everything else I'm after..... but it's really expensive.... much like the rest of this diet.... but I'm trying it anyways.

I'm going to try the Quest bars. Taking your advice on this. Thanks

I am gluten-free for two months now. Before i was used to take Maximuscle products but most of them turned out to have gluten. So i am looking for protein drinks that are gluten-free. I am searching about the Optimum Nutrition (ON)Gold Standard Whey and the Cytosport Muscle Milk. Is anyone familiar with these products and do you have any suggestions?

Thank you very much !!

    • I would say get retested, to be sure, do a gluten challenge with her where she eats gluten for 12 weeks, not much just a half slice of bread a day or a wheat cracker for the blood test and 2 weeks for the biopsy. You mentioned bumps, and dry patches...this might be DH from celiacs and if it is you can go to a dermatologist and they can test it. In some people with DH reactions to gluten, their intestines do not show much damage as most of the antibodies are directed elsewhere. In this case you would have your symptoms. Now Celiac is a autoimmune disease that commonly has other auto immune diseases associated with it. NOW if your daughter has the gene for it she could have another automimmune disease I am not very familiar with and someone else might be able to help you more on suggestions for testing. Now in my personal opinion it sounds like she was still getting into gluten when you said she was off of it. NOTE gluten is a tricky bugger, it is a protein smaller then a germ that can stick in cracks and scratches on all your utensils, food prep area, knifes, etc. As a flour it can hang in the air for hours and even be inhaled effecting some of us. It is present in a lot of things we do not consider, like makeup, playdough, shampoos, seasonings, sauces, even some dry wall spackles.  Now if she is in a shared house hold with other kids and not everyone is on this diet she has likely been getting into gluten somewhere, like touching glutened surfaces the other kids touched after eating gluten foods then putting her hand in her mouth or on safe foods. Or just randomly eating gluten foods, note symptoms can last weeks and wane from how it is effecting you. It does not take much to trigger symptoms you might have to be more careful and move her to a whole foods only diet, and have a separate prep area, utensils, cooking zone for her if you wish to keep fixing separate meals for her vs the gluten family.     I would suggest just changing the entire family over, anyway perhaps start with a separate fold out table, use freezer paper to line the prep area, a microwave, mini toaster oven, and some microwave cook ware like steamers, steam bags, etc. and using gloves to fix her meals. She will need her own condiment jars (crumbs in hte jars) and area for safe snacks. I would suggest getting her only gluten-free CERTIFIED FOODS for now. You can find some whole food healthy snacks at mygerbs.com, and a few other places. I will provide a link to gluten-free food list. PERHAPS you can change the entire family over....now days it is more like changing brands as everything you used to eat is available in a gluten-free brand. ALSO have a lot of dairy free options there. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hi wondering if someone could help. my daughter has mildly raised TTG  levels and the gliadine levels, she has one Coeliacs gene, but her biopsy came back negative.   We have kept her off gluten (and low dairy) for nearly a year to see if her symptoms improved.  They haven't.  But I don't know if they are related to gluten specifically.  Just wondering if anyone has other suggestions that may be going on with her.  Her symptoms are: - Short stature, she's nearly 9 and my 6 year old boy is nearly bigger than her - bumps on back of her arms - urine leaking and occasional soiled pants, which could be from constipation she has at time's - sticking out stomach - dry patchy rashes on her face - joint pain sporadically - vomits every 6 weeks, but hasn't had gluten and seems to be no food connection - reoccurring thrush She had gluten last night at a party and was fine today. I'm a bit lost and not sure where else to turn.  Thanks for any help.
    • We have gone gluten free, our whole house, as of a month ago. It was pretty seamless since I had been gluten-free for 5 months last year. I have found many good recipes, and my picky husband and one of my boys who is also a picky eater, even prefer many gluten-free recipes to the regular ones.  My husband did see my point about the size of the gluten protein means nothing. Its a gluten protein period, that's what you are avoiding. It doesn't matter if its hiding in the scratch of your baking sheet and you can't see it. You can't see the wind, but it's still there. I hear you on the anemia. I've been anemic for several years, I just thought it as because I was getting a little older. Has your anemia gone away or do you still have problems with it? 
    • Ennis, it is made out of metal, coated with plastic I think. You have such a hard time, my heart really hurts for you. But you are such a support to those on this board, and a great teacher for those of us who are new.  
    • Thanks everyone! I think its hard for people to fully accept because they cant see the damage it does every time you get glutened. It's invisible. Im glad to know I wasnt being paranoid. I sure was when I was first diagnosed. I laugh at myself now, but its a pretty steep learning curve.
