In Topic: What's Your Blood Type?

21 January 2005 - 02:34 PM

Type A here,

The blood type diet is useful as one of 9 homeostatic controls of metabolism. Each blood type contains certain lectins that make you more susceptible to certain food intolerances.

Celiac caused leaky gut and that is the main cause of food intolerance and food allergy, so testing is a good idea. The Lame Advertisement test is the best because it uses your white blood cell count as a baseling and therefore can even pinpoint intolerance.

In Topic: Sugar Is Out

I love Stevia and it takes like three minutes to get used to it. I only use the liquid kind and use a dropper. I eat no starch or sugar because celiac started messing with my pancreas (pancreatic insuffieciency and whacked out insulin). I have since found out that i am allergic to many things.
The diets that have really help me are:
The no-grain diet (similar to south beach but more holistic not fad)
Th metabolic typing diet (similar to south beach if you are protein or mixed type)

The metabolic typing diet has opened up my eyes and saved my life cuz all my allergies had me down to 3 "healthy" choices of food.

Check it out you''ll love it

In Topic: Weight Gain

01 January 2005 - 02:06 PM

I also have the same issue with weight gain. I have always been very thin and then when i had my full blown celiac outbreak i gained 30 lbs in one month. Everytime i get near gluten i gain 10-15lbs in a week. Then when i am off of it i lose 10 lbs a week. There are so many issues and painful things that occur in the meantime that it is hard to get a handle on it all.

In Topic: This Is More That Celiac!

After I started the gluten-free diet i still had problems. I decided to eliminate all grains and that is when i discovered that i had additional allergies to milk and eggs and intolerances to nuts and mushrooms. I tried gluten again to see if maybe it was only an allergy or nothing at all and discovered that there are a few symptoms which only gluten causes and though i don't remember them when they are gone, they are very serious and debilitating when they are present.
