I've been diagnosed recently and I've been on the gluten free diet now for a couple of months. I am a runner doing some long distance and find that my energy level is not the same. I feel very depleted much faster. Before the gluten free diet, I was fine and could do half marathon and feel still fine.
Any athletes out there? Did you experience the same thing when you switched to gluten free diet? What should I supplement with or eat more of?
I also find that I cannot drink much at all any more? One or 2 glasses of alchohol hits my body much stronger and faster than it used to. Any one else found that also?
I think it has something to do with the carbs we eat now.
Any help would be appreciated.
