Oftentimes, whole unprocessed foods make a huge difference compared to a diet w/ a lot of processed foods, made from a long list of ingreds.
It also makes it far easier to find which foods might be problematic.
Lactose, casein (milk sugar & a milk protein) & soy issues are pretty common around here.
Something you've been fine eating before might not agree w/ you while healing.
It could be as simple as, say the one 'replacement product' (gluten-free reformulations of cookies, crackers, bread etc) that uses some tapioca flour, or mung bean or fava bean flour or some other ingred that you just weren't exposed to much before might have always been disagreeable but never came up.
It's a lot simpler to find out when eating a simple diet.
Or maybe the current issue 3 wks in is from something else - ppl w/ pets might try a different pet food that's on sale & find out later it's got gluten & has been affecting them.
All sorts of unlikely things might be involved & ppl here will help you find them, so don't be daunted by the scope (easier said than done - we've all felt overwhelmed early on).
Gotta start w/ reviewing current diet.
So, whatcha eatin'?

Never going back, spreading the word, handing out cookies one interested participant at a time.
