Trouble digesting Carbs
I'm after some advice on nutrition. Just over a year ago i was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Basically my body struggles to digest carbohydrates. I haven't stopped training but am wondering if the supplements i am taking are doing me more harm than good. I am only taking protein and glutamine at the mo. What is the best protein for me to take as i might be lactose intollerent? I've also been told that i shouln't be eating potatoes, rice, pasta (basically all carbs) which is virtually impossible cos if i don't eat carbs, i haven't got any energy to work out. I've noticed that MP sell a lot of digestive aids. Are any suitable for my condition? Any help would be greatly appreciated
ello, firstly the best protein for lactose intollernts will be whey protein isolate, due to the low lactose content.
secondly although im not too sure if it will help, u could try some digerstive enzymes to help u digest your food. just a suggestion really.
if u are allowed it, fruit is a good carb source. take it pre and post workout (30mins pre n post)
are u allowed beans at all?
Thanx for the advice. Not really allowed beans. I'm trying to find any food to help me put some weight on at the mo. I consume over 150g of protein per day (i weigh approx 90kg) but because i go to the toilet a lot due to my condition i find it hard to put weight on. I will try the digestive enzymes though, thanx
What is it about the condition that makes Carbohydrates a problem?
Are you getting treatment?
(there is another poster who has a similar thing i believe)
Just googled it.
Looks like WPI is going to be your best bet definately. Fruit and veg are ok too so like Tom said fruit will be good for workouts.
If you want to put on weight you are probably going to have to consume a lot more than 150g of protein per day. Also try and increase your fat intake with good sources like oily fish, nuts and seeds
