Nutrition Gut Issues

546 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  kcwoodhead
For those who have major gut, read large intestine, issues, bad enough that you seek medical or nutritionist advice/supervision. Can you tell me what is working for you. What you can tolerate the night before, morning of and during a long (3+ hours) race/workout.<br><br>
Does anyone know if using Immodium can impair nutrient absorption over a long distance race.<br><br>
I am still having difficulty nailing nutrition, I know what I can tolerate, I just can't figure out what sends me over the edge into gut distress. I think heat even moderate temps makes a huge difference, but can't seem to find a pattern with anything else.

I found two things that help try way in advance and get dr's advice on the iron option<br>
1) very low dose iron (I split a 30mg tablet and take the 1/2 every other day) for a week before<br>
2) beef or eggs the night before. Sure its not adding to last minute glycogen stores but it seems to control my gut well during the races<br>
try having gut issues in a long ow swim!
