I hope someone is able to help me with this one. I am a budding triathlete and ultra runner, but I have for a long time suffered with my digestion (nothing new there right?). Without going into too much detail about it, my symptoms range from constipation to diarrhoea and serious urgency either during or after running - which can be a bit embarrassing as well as simply inconvenient. I have been cutting out food stuffs gradually to see what might be the culprit, but so far giving up alcohol, caffeine, dairy and wheat have not yielded much in the way of results. I am now on a strict yeast free diet (including all refined sugar, alcohol, bread, fruits etc.) and I am seeing a bit of an improvement. Yet I am faced with another problem, how to get enough carbs to stop my weight loss. As all bread products, most wheat produccts, and all sugary stuff (including gels, energy drinks and energy bars) are off limits I am struggling a bit. This poses a serious problem on longer runs and rides as all of the portable food tends to be off limits. I have read the book by Scott Jurek (eat and run) but also lots of his ingredients are not allowed at the moment.
So if anyone has experience with similar issues, and further more can help me reach a solution, please let me know. So idea will be overlooked and all feedback will be appreciated.
