Gluten Free Athletes

Can our diet be both gluten free and appropriate for athletes competing in a rigorous and demanding sport? These tri-athletes have said “yes” and given suggestions for how to accomplish this diet-wise. Read these blogs by Desiree Ficker, Stephanie Diamond, and John Martin. They will provide reassurance that celiacs can achieve anything they truly desire and specifics about the diet that enabled them to succeed in the sports world.

While we are on the subject of successful celiac athletes, read about Kelly Baker. She’s an award winning body builder who also deals with celiac disease, and intolerance to soy, eggs, and nuts.

REMINDER: My current survey attempts to provide information about what celiacs due to insure that every meal that comes out of their kitchen is free of cross-contamination and therefore truly gluten free. The survey lists fifteen recommendations and asks for a yes/no answer about whether or not you observe those precautions. Voting ends this Saturday so there is still opportunity to vote if you have not yet done so. Click here to complete the survey.
