Things other then gluten

Ennis_TX

So I have found some other issues I have found with my fracked up gut I thought I would share....rare anyone could relate to some of these but throwing it out there.

For me my body gets moody after being sick, eating something it disagrees with, or for months after a exposure. During these times my diet has to lack peppers, easy on tomatoes, garlic, and onions as well as be cooked super tender and or homogenized before cooking (IE blended soups, blending meats/veggies into eggs before cooking, or smoothies). Other things I have to avoid for various reasons, Gluten, Corn, Whey, Lactose, Soy, Peanuts, Sugar, very little carbs/starches. Also note my body can eat solids for breakfast...but any other meals later in the day have to be a homogenized meal like nut meal porridge, or a blended egg dish.

ANYWAY here are things things I have found from trial and error and how I fixed them

I found I can not eat or drink cold food/drinks anymore..it has to be warmer then my body to digest it. Anytime I have more then a few oz of something cold or if I eat something frozen now days I get gastropraisis and anything I eat/drink for the rest of the day will be vomited back up 4-12 hours later.

 Vomiting with chunks of food hours later was a multiple approach. First this means I am not breaking down the food so adding enzymes and HCL pills to break them down is a must, if there are hard pieces that means I needed to blend that ingredient or grind it into a powder before cooking with it (IE nuts, seeds, Crackers, chunks of plants)
Second if it floats I will vomit it up...to fix this I often will soak nuts, seeds, veggies, herbs, etc. 24-48 hours in the fridge, sometimes blend them in a small liquid base then let sit overnight. Something like oily/fatty foods have to be omitted from diet. The soaking method...think of it like marinading a soup over night before reheating it or letting herbs infuse in to your eggs with nut flours for that quiche/frittata in the morning.

From the above some odd approaches were taken with vegetables, Harder ones like broccoli or cauliflower, I find I need to freeze them first (this causes the water inside to burst the cells making them more tender upon cooking) second I steam or microwave steam them a extra 2-3 mins to be extra tender with no hard pieces. This is often good enough that they sink but sometimes I still puree them and use as a flavor enhancer instead (blending with chicken broth, coconut milk, and herbs with a bit of vegan cheese makes a good broccoli soup the puree seasoned can be used as a dip) Cauliflower...I often freeze, steam, rice it in a food processor then dry it out in the oven for a nice veggie meal for baked goods...it is also good steamed, seasoned, and roasted then tossed in a sauce.
    Kale, Spinach, Collards, greens in general...these have 4 approaches...the above blending is a option, but I also like to saute/wilt til super tender and find them easy to digest.  I also do some other fun things I can make chips out of them by tossing in seasoning (almond butter or olive oil base with seasoning) and low heat roasting in the oven. OR  I can just dehydrate them/freeze dry them ...at which point I often grind into a powder for adding to green shots to reconstitute overnight and down first thing in the morning.

Now to approach the other end.
IF I have a bunch of gas...I probably ate to many carbs or something I was intolerant to and its proteins/sugars got broken down into gas
Distention...I probably ate something my body hates, this is often the case for me with carbs, very spicy foods, lactose, and soy.
Diarrhea...Oddly I found something funny..many times it comes from my excessive protein intake eating more then 40% of your diet as protein can cause it. It can also be caused by lacking in binding fibers, too much liquid diet, not enough potassium, too much coffee (decaf is much worse to this end), "Eyeballing" your magnesium instead of using a scale -_-. Spices, lactose, soy, can also trigger it as my body purges the unwanted offending agent.

Movement....I can only do some HITT first thing in the morning before eating, I can do some things for short amounts of time during this time frame and be alright. I can not do anything that involves fast movement or jumping after eating. I can not do long distance running at all or sports without getting sick. I have instead opted to do moderate resistance (15-40lb bands) and weight training (75%-120% my body weight), and I use a under desk low impact elliptical or a stationary bike in front of my couch for cardio >.> for about 4-6 hours a day.

And of course there is the random food intolerance or sensitivities I get, some foods even have seem to have  a stacking penalty on my system. As in I can eat a food one day and be fine but I can not eat it 2 days in a row without getting sick. I see this with the tomato, wine in sauces, chicken meat, and a few other things which are now considered "treats" to be eaten once a month as they have no long term effects.
  Other foods as mentioned in my list of foods I can not have will make me sick in even the tiniest amounts...no reason why but peanuts by example will have me vomiting then dry heaving for hours.

EnnisTx,

This is about your Peanut issue...Squirmingitch referenced an article from Australia in the grapes thread....and it had something about Peanuts in it...here is a nice link about what is in peanuts that could be causing your reaction(s)....when I got a chance to read up more on it...it seems like it could be what is causing you problems....at least it bares researching some more..

I hope this is helpful but it is  not medical advise.

https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/causes-prevention/risk/substances/aflatoxins

. To help minimize risk, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tests foods that may contain aflatoxins, such as peanuts and peanut butter. To date, no outbreak of human illness caused by aflatoxins has been reported in the United States, but such outbreaks have occurred in some developing countries.”

Sounds  like it’s not really an issue with US peanut products.

I hi

EnnisTx,

You might look into Lectins...there are a lot of good article on it ...just google it and see what comes up...earlier I was trying to find something specific to peanuts...but your problems seem to be broader than peanuts alone. I won't overload you with links...I will just quote one featured on Celiac.com 3 or 4 years ago..

I hope you get to feeling better soon....As always this is not medical advise...just things that I would look into if I was still having trouble with other things on a gluten free diet.

Yeah I considered that, ...but I can eat pure sunflower lectin (they sell it online and I got it to test the lectin theory) with hardly any issues.
In regards to peanuts it falls under a food sensitivity. Sort of like how I threw up with iceberg lettuce for years, and I had issues with pickles and cucumbers for almost a decade making me really sick, I spent 3 years with a sesame seed issue. They went away so I assume the peanut issue might one day.

Though I am told by another person with UC that the carnivore keto diet can help if you cook everything tender and get good cuts.
