Wendy,

 

Why not consider just dropping all processed foods for now.  You don't know that rice and beans are a problem for you.  Many of us can't eat a lot of processed foods. I get some cookies once in a blue moon but I try to keep it all one ingredient food choices.  This is much easier to do than cutting out items that you don't know if you have a problem with or not.  It is also much healthier. Do this for a good 2 months and see how you do.  You can address a possible additional intolerance at that point if your still having problems.  I know others may say to limit everything now and add back in but the corn in processed food seems to be your problem.

TY Colleen, 

 That may be easier than going on Paleo, And for 2 months sure is doable! I do know corn is a problem for me , there is no question about that. I was cooking last night and was reading ingredients and looked up and sure enuf something was corn derived so I ended out just having Chicken. Thats when it hit me about the processed stuff. For some reason it just struck me as Paleo. But I guess you have a good point. I LOve Beans and Rice :) I wouldn't have to give them up :) 2 months thats a deal! See what happens. If I am still suffering from "Something" then I will take rice away. Only because I eat more rice than beans and potatoes. for 2 months. If still problems I will cut out Potatoes. But I have a feeling just cutting out Processed will do ALOT! Thanks!

I agree with Colleen. Before you go all caveman, ditch anything from a package. Use my 5 ingredient rule: If the label has more than 5 ingredients (and I cannot pronounce half of them and even my chemist hub shakes his head and makes that face like "er, that's not food, that's just chemicals")  LOL

then, I don't eat them 

 

And for what it's worth, I have been on a primal diet for 7 weeks,....it's not horrid, but let's just say....... I still drink vodka.  :lol: 

 

Keep your rice and beans if you can!  ;)

I agree with Colleen and Irish....ditch everything processed before removing other foods.

Wendy,

 

Glad to hear you are giving it a shot.  You have learned so much already and the corn intolerance is very difficult to deal with (just ask Barty) and so many processed foods have corn deriviitives.  I'm not eating anything processed right now either (different reason) so we can do this together  :)

Yeah, I'm still eating some processed foods. I went without them for a long time and when I finally found gluten-free/corn-free ice cream and gluten-free/corn-free potato chips, I jumped on them.

 

As a matter of fact, I found a new (to me) brand of potato chips the other day. The health food store was out of Kettle Brand but they had Boulder Canyon Olive Oil chips. Now, I love Kettle Brand but they are incredibly greasy. I mean if you tip the empty bag the greas will actually drip out! These Boulder Canyon chips are not as greasy and even if they were, we all know olive oil is good for us. So yeah, I'm still getting the salt and the calories, but I don't feel quite so guilty. And they are yummy. :)

It's a deal Colleen :) 

 

Bartful I do have some chips I like , They are "Better Made" made with cotton seed oil/ Palm oil and sea salt. I will miss them for a while but Ohhh well! I will get over it for two months. At least it's not in the middle of summer where there are partys all the time. This is a good time to do this.

Yesss the five ingredient rule looks like something I can do! I had a week of rehearsals, performances and late nights which meant living mostly on the only packet of crisps in the vending machine I knew were gluten-free. And now I have flu for the first time in five months. I think my body would appreciate the five ingredient rule...
