Dear Willie
Because of your gluten allergy and other conditions, I cannot prescribe a general high-carb, high-protein diet for you as most athletes use. Please consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings)) who will work out a specific diet that takes all your special factors into consideration and is also not overloaded with protein which could cause damage to your kidneys. It is really worth your while to go for such a consultation.
Good luck with the competition.
