  1. All Hammer products are gluten free. I have used them exclusively-especially the Endurolytes and the Sustained Energy-a product to use while on your bike. It's a 7:1 carb/protein ratio that delivers a very sustained level of energy. Once I started using it I never went back to Gatorade etc. It also does not contain any sugar i.e. sucrose, dairy, colors, flavors, stimulants etc. a huge plus for me on the run. You can also mix a multi-hour bottle into your first water bottle depending on how long your training ride is- 3,4 5 hour whatever, then use a bottle with plain water to supplement with enough fluid. You can also add a hammer gel into the Sustained Energy to add taste (also gluten free). I do several half IM's and many other races per year using their products and they are the best! Good luck with the training!! www.hammernutrition.com
  2. thanks! It does help to know that others have the same symptoms.
  3. I was dx'd several years ago but I have a new symptom that might be related? Does anyone ever get any numbness or tingling in their feet? I read that some celiacs do get neuropathy. Thanks!
  4. Trader Joes' usually has a gluten free list of products that they carry at their front desk area. They almost always stock gluten free rice bread, waffles, brown rice pasta, gluten free energy bars, soup etc. I shop at TJ's on a regular basis because their list of products is so extensive. They don't have a "gluten free" section but the products on the list are grouped by category so as you are shopping in a particular section of the store you can look for the specific item.
  5. Hi, I was dx with Celiac 6 years ago. Although I've been very careful with my diet I am much more sensitive to any type of "acciental" gluten ingestion. I'm thinking about purchasing the Clan Thompson Gluten free list for either my PDA or computer. Does anyone else use this system?? Thanks!!
  6. It's great to hear that so many more people diagnosed with Celiac are competing in marathons and triathlons. I've been gluten free for almost 4 years now and am an avid marathon runner and triathlete. If your energy is low you may want to make sure that you are getting enough calories, especially carbohydrates. With the "lo-carb" craze many athletes are not getting the proper nutrition into their systems and end up with very low energy. Your body needs carbs in order to train and race. If you are training 2 hours per day your body needs at least 8g of carbohydrate per kilogram of body weight. Example: A 57 kg athlete needs 340grams-399 grams of carb (per day) if you are spending 1 hour per day training. The same athlete would need 456 grams of carbohydrate if they were training 2 hours per day. Don't forget protein too, a competitive athlete needs 1.2-1.8 grams per kilogram per day or the same 57 kg athlete needs a minimum of 68.4 grams of protein daily. I take gluten-free multivitamin and use a product called "Platinum Performance". It's available online.
