I am lactose intolerant and I think i'm sensitive to wheat. What supplements, if any, should I take?

Answer:

None of our products contain any significant lactose. Our proteins from dairy have almost all the lactose removed during the manufacturing of the raw material. All of our products are gluten free (except some of our nutrition bars) and therefore, they won’t affect your potential wheat sensitivity. The bars that are gluten free I listed below. You did not tell us what your statistics or physical goals are, so we can’t give you a supplement recommendation beyond a health one we give everyone, which I have also placed below. 

Gluten Free Bars 

• Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch dotBAR

• Salted Carmel Crunch dotBAR

• PB&J dotBAR

• Triple Chocolate high Protein dotCOOKIE

• Chocolate Chip High Protein dotCOOKIE

*Use electrolyte formula (e.g. Gatorade) and water as directed

Here’s direction on setting up your own program: 

If a dotFIT licensed club visit is not a viable option, you can receive all your diet, supplement and body composition (weight loss/muscle gain/performance) needs online from the dotFIT program. Go to the dotFIT home page and register for free. From there simply follow instructions creating your program and setting your goal. The dotFIT program will give you the meal plan outline with the proper calories, carbohydrates, fats and protein to get started, track intake and monitor results. It will also give you your supplement recommendations (I placed the health one above) and exactly how to use them so that you will be able to maintain weight, lose fat and/or gain muscle by feeding your body nutrients with low to no calories.

Every week when you enter your weight and/or bodyfat, the program will tell you what to do until you reach your goal including recreating menus as necessary. Once you create the program and get menus, you can go to our recipe section on the dotFIT website to get recipes with meal preparation instructions including meal replacement recipes. There is also a complete exercise program you can use to create the proper program to accomplish your goal – and again, just answer the simple questions and your exercise program will be created. Here is a link to a 5 minute video tutorial on how to use the exercise portion:
