Food Intolerance and Food Allergies: Part 2

Allergy Free Zucchini Bread

1.  Sensitivity to Criticism.  When you are always “defending” yourself and your opinions, state of mind, beliefs, etc, you are constantly in a state of DEFENSE against your environment.  This is a reason why some people react more strongly to these bad foods than others.
2.  Eating the same food over and over and over again.  Our bodies like variety.  Switch it up.  Don’t eat almonds every day.  Try some walnuts or brazil nuts instead.  Eggs are something that a lot of us eat every single day.  Hell, I would love to eat eggs every day; but I don’t.  Rotating your foods is a great way to avoid developing intolerances.
3.  When in doubt, cut it out.  You can always add it back in to see if it’s a problem.  Some people don’t realize foods are causing them a problem because they have eaten them for their WHOLE LIFE.  There is a simple at-home test you can do to see if you are reacting to foods.  Take your pulse on an empty stomach before eating a meal.  Eat a decent amount of the “suspected food.”  Eat it by itself.  Then take your pulse again.  If your pulse goes up by more than 4-5 points, there is a good likelihood you are reacting to that food.  Cut it out for a few weeks and try again.
So that is my opinion on this whole subject.  When cutting out foods that humans are not designed to consume and eating a well-balanced, well varied diet; these things often DISAPPEAR.  Now wouldn’t that be nice?
