When good food turns to flab . . .
Are you looking for a weight loss cure?
Food intolerance testing may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Most of us know that eating high fat and high sugar foods can cause weight gain. But few people realize that healthy foods like whole grains, dairy products, eggs and vegetables can also cause weight gain, if you have a food intolerance. Food intolerance testing may be just the weight loss cure you’ve been looking for.
Weight gain and food intolerance
Food intolerance causes weight gain in a couple of ways:
- Fluid retention
- Increased appetite
There are many factors involved in gaining and losing weight: hormone levels, emotional triggers, proper nutrition, ability to exercise, and motivation to change are also important considerations. Put it all together, and a natural weight loss cure may very well be in sight.
Food intolerance can be caused by any food: foods you eat all the time, or foods you seldom eat. With food intolerance, your immune system sees the food as a foreign invader and produces antibodies to it. These IgG antibodies combine with the food antigen and create a complex. The body tries to eliminate these complexes but if there are too many, it falls behind and the complexes settle in tissues, causing inflammation and tissue damage. The best way to prevent or improve symptoms and illnesses associated with food intolerance is to test and identify the offending foods and remove them from the diet.
Food intolerance differs from immediate onset IgE food allergies in that IgE reactions happen minutes to hours after a food is eaten, whereas IgG reactions take hours or days to develop. This makes it very difficult to figure out which foods are responsible for food intolerance. An elimination diet may help, but ordering a food intolerance test is the fastest and most direct way of eliminating the reactive foods.
What is food intolerance?
Food intolerance is essentially an abnormal reaction to certain foods which can manifest itself in a number of ways.
