Eating The Same Foods Everyday

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had a problem with eating the same foods everyday? I have figured out foods that I know do not bother me and I am afraid if I eat them everyday that I will develop an intolerance to that food. Has anyone had that experience?

I can easily eat the same things everyday and not really get bored because I am a creature of habit. I have to force myself to try new foods. It really seems though lately I am reacting to so many things that it isn't worth it at this point in time to keep trying. I just want to eat as stress free as possible.

Thank you for any input,

Michelle

Yes, there is a very real danger of developing intolerances to foods you eat every single day. It is better to have a four-day rotation diet.

I used to eat a banana every day, until I developed an allergy to them. I was unable to eat bananas for nearly two years. Now I can eat one once or twice a week (max) without a problem.

I do that all the time!!!! I will get on a certain kick and eat that thing for a week get sick of it and it something else for a week ect.

THe thing I would worry about is making sure you are still eating balanced...take vitamins ect if you need to.

If you think you'll develop an allergy or intolerance, you probably will. But if you enjoy what you're eating and it's not causing you problems now, then keep enjoying it and don't worry about anything.

You do not develop an intolerance or allergy simply by thinking it, that isn't possible! I am reading a good book right now called, "the Mood Cure". It talks a lot about how gluten has been an evil in our existance for a very long time now and it has nothing to do with celiac disease. It talks about "bad mood" foods and "good mood" foods and it does tell that it is not good to eat the same things all the time. It tells that variety is necessary. I have fallen into the same trap you have. I eat the same things all the time, because I have found a certain number of things that do not make me sick. The problem is, now I am not getting all of the different amino acids I need for the rest of my body, so now my adrenal glands are shutting fown and I am having other problems. I have been to a consultation with a certified health counselor, which she says she can help me get this all figured out, she too, is a celiac, but I am not sure I can afford the price. Now, I am in a "catch 22"! What have I let celiac disease do to me now? It was destroying my life before I knew I had it and now it is destroying it again. So, now I have got to start over again and rethink how to move on from here.

Try not to get where I am! Eating the same thing everyday will not make you develop new intolerances, you can't think yourself into new intolerances, but you can starve your body of what it needs, totally by accident. We do not do it on purpose. We only want to feel good, we only want to wake up and say, "Wow, I feel great!" I can't remember ever saying that! I want to say that one day! Read this book and see if you can find the answer too. The answer may be there for you too. I am so exhausted, it is taking me forever to get through the book! :(

I am in that boat too. Along with no gluten, I am very restricted due to the Intersticial cysitis diet I must follow to keep my bladder from going crazy. Not much I can do about it right now! Glutenwrangler - I think what you said was interesting. It must be based on the theory that your mind and negative thought patterns can create illness. Don't be so quick to dismiss this. There is a lot of info out there to support that.

Actually you CAN develop allergies and intolerances by thinking about it. The mind is much more powerful than you think. Ever heard of the placebo effect? People think a medication will work, so it does even though there is no active medicine in it. And it goes both ways. If you believe that a food will negatively affect your body, it will. And if you don't believe me, ask any doctor or psychologist about psychogenic conditions.
