Achieving Optimum Performance On A Gluten-free Diet

Special feature for celiac athletes published in Runner’s World magazine

 

 

A recent article published by Runner’s World magazine discusses important nutritional considerations for gluten-free athletes.

runners world magazine Featuring Lara Field, R.D., a marathoner and dietitian who works with celiac patients at Comer Children's Hospital at the University of Chicago, the piece identifies key vitamins and minerals often excluded in gluten-free foods, and provides healthy, safe products that can help athletes maintaining energy and boost performance.  

“Field warns that a poorly planned switch to gluten-free can backfire, leading to an inadequate intake of complex carbs, vitamins, and minerals found in runner staples. And while there are lots of healthy gluten-free packaged foods, "not all are nutritional bell ringers," Field says. "Some people associate 'gluten-free' with 'healthier,' but a runner who isn't careful could end up eating a lot of refined carbs and added fats, leading to weight gain."
