Thank you for answering my initial question. .... I'm going to try cutting it out for a week as you suggest to see. Thanks for all the information. It was truly very helpful and just what I needed to hear.


Honestly, sweets, I am going to tell you like it is: It's an up- and- down road, this healing thing ---and it can be very frustrating, but learn to trust your body.

Sometimes, it's hard to tell. A reaction may occur 24 hours later...so, you ask yourself "was it the banana I just ate? or the cheese last night? or the potato from dinner?"..blah blah blah

You start to feel like a crazy gerbil on a treadmill. :blink:

Plain, simple foods for a week. Take out fruit if you think it's a problem, then try ONE piece. See what happens.

(At one point, early on, hubs bought me a juicer. Everyone said this was the "healthy way "to get me some sustenance.....yeah okay, well, I could not even tolerate the most healthy veggies and fruits run through that !*&^% juicer--I just had everything projectile out both ways within a few minutes --sorry, but that's the truth)

WHY??My GI tract was a burning mess.

My conclusion: It's not necessarily the foods causing the "reactions", but the ravaged GUT.

Heal the gut, heal the body.

IMHO

PRECISELY. I wish I could just fast forward to when my gut is healed and being nice to the rest of me.

This "fast forward" button?---is what all of us want. Sadly, they do not sell those on the internet (I looked) :D

I know it's hard to be patient, and there is no quickie miracle pill to take. Bummer.

It just takes time. Hang in there.

Take out the foods you think are a problem right now.
Wait a few weeks. Add back ONE and wait a few days before trying another, ok?

Keep us posted.

Oh gosh, 4 years??? :/ I've decided over the next couple of weeks to just do steamed veggies, baked potatoes, etc etc, then HOPEFULLY my symptoms will finally clear and I can add nuts back in/see how I react, then beans. I'm really hoping this was all just lentils (I ate them almost every day, so it would make sense) but am doing like everyone suggests and writing it all down in my food diary and investigating all possibilities. I have this feeling I might be like you and need to start a garden..

This was very helpful, dilettantesteph; thank you!

I'm glad I was helpful. I was afraid I was discouraging after seeing your first comment! (Oh gosh, 4 years???)
