Recently found out that I've a problem with gluten, so now on gluten-free diet. Relative newbie to running but benched April / May / June due to anaemia. Started back in July and did my first HM last week.
I'm running 4 times per week, concentrating on HM's at the moment and do the usual mix of steadies/thresholds/LSR's etc. I'm aiming to increase distance eventually to full mara, but wonder about fuelling.
I know that I don't need to eat a massive amount of carbohydrates (certainly at the moment) , but I am finding it hard to find g-f alternatives. I eat a healthy diet, fresh fruit, vegetables, pulses, beans etc, cook from scratch and am trying out various types of g-f bread, pasta etc. I do tend to feel a bit tired (but on supplements re anaemia) and sometimes don't find the g-f alternatives as sustaining as the "normal type" .
Someone suggested adding oatmeal to smoothies (which I do), but just wondered if there's anything out there that I'm missing.
If anyone has any suggestions - I'd appreciate it.
