I am worried that cutting out carbohydrates will affect my energy levels and training. What should I do?

We understand your concerns, but when you are supplying your body with carbohydrates in foods you are reacting to, especially gluten, you will have a loss of energy and physical strength due to the inflammatory processes. There are still some carbohydrates which you can eat (e.g. rice, potatoes, corn, etc.) so you can get your carbohydrate intake through those. If you do not have a positive result for yeast then you can eat gluten-free breads. You may have to eat larger portions or more regularly. You could also increase protein and fat intake with high quality fats rich in omega-3. Calcium supplements are a good idea as you will lose a lot of minerals during competition. Preliminary study results with athletes show that an increase of VO2max, the reduction of lactate, contributes to better recovery and better body fat composition are achieved while adopting an ImuPro diet.
