Updates, bites, and bits, and stuff. Gluten free bites, of course.

Greetings and salutations! Welcome to the newly mini-facelifted Gluten Free Fitness. I hope you find it a bit easier to navigate and easier on the eyes.  Someday I will have the $$ to have my friend JC of JCDFitness fame do a kick butt custom design, but until then a huge thanks goes to Hive […]

Treadmill desk

Life with a Treadmill Desk aka Move Your A** if you want to save it

We do altogether too much sitting in this world. Think about it. We sit in the car on the way to work. We sit at work. We sit in the car/on the train/bus whatever on the way home from work.  If we’re lucky, we sit in the car on the way to the gym. We […]

Gluten Free Athlete Profile-John Forberger AKA Gluten Free Triathlete

Back when I first started researching gluten free and celiac athletes online, John’s was one of the first websites I found.  John is an endurance athlete (as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t run unless I’m chased-I much prefer lifting heavy stuff) and so he provides a different perspective.

Walk, Type, and Burn Calories-Seriously.

Remember the old “pat your head and rub your belly” trick? Try it again, now, just for fun. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Now try it, but rub your belly slowly. Don’t think about it too much, just let your hand move. Got easier to pat your head, didn’t it? I promise you I have a […]

Supplements for the Gluten Free Athlete-Glutamine Edition

Here’s a shocker-I have a fitness background. In the fitness world, there is something that is affectionately referred to as “bro-science.” Interestingly enough, there is actually a definition for “bro-science” at urbandictionary.com. “Broscience is the predominant brand of reasoning in bodybuilding circles where the anecdotal reports of jacked dudes are considered more credible than scientific […]

Calorie Intake and You-How do You Stack Up? Expenditure vs. Intake-Calories Do Count Part 2

You may have heard various and sundry diet and nutrition gurus touting the benefits of a given “diet”-you can eat as much as you want and not gain fat, as long as it is under the full moon, the color red, and you eat standing up. OK, so maybe not that extreme, but the idea […]
