Failed With Protein Supplements

Well I did my research tried the most recommended in tis forum (i.e. Vega, Raw and Trader Joe's Hemp) all messed me up. I'm only a month into my gluten-free diet and diagnosed with IBS not Celiacs( endo biopsy negative) , but when I dont accidentally glutten myself I feel normal again. Thus i may have low tolerance for hemp or other grains/ seeds that I haven't quite pin pointed yet in addition to gluten. I want to gain weight lost, my resolution is: lots of eggs, greek yogurt, MEAT, and 4 protein filed big meals a day with hummus and avocado sanckings in between. Of corse with a weight lifting program when not gluttened will let you know how it goes. Im shooting for at least 20lb. Any tips appreciated.

I am an athlete with a very sensitive gleuten intolerance. the onlly protien suplement I have found to not give me problems is "fast digesting ISO-Z5" isolate protien. if taken with H2O there is only 140 cal. I take mine with milk and I double the recomended dose. recomended dose is 2 scoops per day. I take 2 scoops in am and 2 in pm. vit B-12, and a multi. they sem to be working pretty good as I have been doing thisfor one month now. BUT I follow a very strict gleuten free soy free diet and very sparing in the carb and casin dept.

When I say athlete I mean I am 43 yo. I have lived with this for about 1.5 years and am currently on a pretty heavy work out plan. I do a 5k brisk on monday, a 10k on wednesday, light (not lazy) 5k thursday, all those in A.M. In PM I work out monday thru thursday lifting. then I do a long run of 10 to 15 miles every saterday. I am not boasting I am just stating that you can do what I am if you maintain your discipline and not give up, but it will take time and set backs but you are worth the effort.

I'm only a month into my gluten-free diet and diagnosed with IBS not Celiacs( endo biopsy negative) , but when I dont accidentally glutten myself I feel normal again.

I was training for an ultramarathon when I got diagnosed. I lost about 8 Lbs (I think all muscle) and am not just slightly underweight (18.5 BMI). My personal decision is to wait until 2 months gluten-free and then to maintain a healthy weight for at least two weeks before I start training again. I'm just ending the 2-month period, so it's all about gaining a few more pounds for me, which is crazy hard. Then I'll ramp up really slowly. On the sport board, some people recommend waiting even longer after going gluten-free before undertaking any serious exercise.

Anyway, this is just my opinion. Although I totally get the folks who don't wait -- so frustrating not to be running right now. I just ordered my favorite gluten-free running fuel, just to make myself feel better and have it ready in case I manage to gain the weight soon.

By the way, have you tried rice protein? I eat Zing bars, and that's what they have. I can't seem to do almost any foods, but the rice protein in Zing bars seems just fine.

Hey Robert, can't do whey protein either not soy, intolerant to that too. I'll work on my profile next time I post, but it's up lifting to see all you can do, can't wait...

Hey Chaff, I used to run 5k 3x per week before I started going down. Now I'm not too interested in running but lifting weights as I want to gain weight; however, like you, I noticed my muscles getting weaker and recovery taking longer before I stoped. When I picked up lifting I would actually loose weight despite eating like a horse. This was before going gluten-free a month ago, I feel myself improving.

I dont react to rice maybe I'll give it a try later, thanks.

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
