“Switch­ing to wheat-free pasta is a sim­ple move that can re­duce po­ten­tial prob­lems as­so­ci­ated with wheat in­take; bloat­ing, al­ler­gies, aching joints and dif­fi­culty los­ing weight ,” sug­gests nu­tri­tion­ist Matt Lovell.

A Univer­sity of Colorado study among 300 en­durance cy­clists found that when they re­verted to wheat foods con­tain­ing gluten, 84 per cent claimed it neg­a­tively af­fected their train­ing. “Try hav­ing oats at break­fast in place of wheat-based ce­real, use rice cakes as a snack in­stead of sand­wiches and fruit in­stead of bis­cuits,” sug­gests Lovell.

Swap wheat-based ce­real for other grains for rid­ing gains
