What Foods Are You Intolerant To?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know there are a lot of people out there who have problems with dairy, corn, soy etc. I am wondering what your intolerances/allergies are. Have you had testing for these or do you just know through trial and error?

Even if you are only intolerant to gluten, please respond because I am trying to get a picture of how many people have multiple intolerances and how many just can't do gluten.

Okay, I will start you off:

Lactose (improving now)

Gluten

Corn (although I can handle non-GM corn)

Soy, including soy lecithin

Potatoes and peppers (I tend to avoid the other nightshades too)

Citric acid

Caffeine

Non-organic beef

Gluten, soy, corn, rice, (all grains) red meat, shellfish, nightshades, cruciferous veggies, tapioca, and now, dairy :( . The last one upset me so much, losing my cheese...I had already given up cottage cheese and ice cream.

I also do not use high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, and very little sugar...only natural sugars in fruits.

To be honest, I eat a fairly healthy diet. Chicken breast, cod, talipia, tuna, peas, carrots, green beans, and many fruits, always fresh or packed in their own juice. I also use peanut butter, Skippy Naturals, or Jif Naturals...and I can eat Utz popato chips.

Holy cow. What do you people eat? :(

These's actually a lot left to eat--when I was first diagnosed, I found I was intolerant to dairy, corn and eggs in addition to the foods I listed in my post above.

Even then, I ate meats, poultry, walnuts and almonds, fruit, vegies (except legumes), white and sweet potatoes, Lay's Stax Chips, almond and rice milks--which were very useful in recipes, etc., olive oil, tea, rice. I used Enjoy Life foods, also. I even baked a little bit using rice flour and potato starch.

It took a while--I'm gluten-free for 4 years now, but I was gradually able to reintroduce eggs (in moderation--as part of a recipe), corn, and finally just recently dairy :D . I completely cut out the things I was sensitive to for well over 3 years.

I still can not tolerate legumes or tapioca--those I may never be able to eat since they cause me worse reactions than even gluten. I think I might actually be allergic to tapioca.....I stay far, far away..... :rolleyes:

Well, I eat all fresh meats - nothing processed, fish, fresh or frozen veggies, homemade yogurt with honey, all fresh and frozen fruit, (with no sugar or any additivies,) except for the few I'm allergic too. I snack on apples, carrots, olives, dill pickles, I also eat lots of onions - very good for the immune system.

I've never felt better and have tons of energy!

Dairy (cow & goat)

Eggs

Bakers Yeast

Brewers Yeast

Pinto Beans

Scallops

Clams

...the list goes on

I find it very challenging to stick to a gluten, dairy, & egg free diet. If anyone has any suggestions or recipes that they love, I am all ears!

Thanks,

Maria

Gluten

Dairy (casein)

Nitrates/ites

Sulfates/ites

MSG

Pistachios (maybe almonds too now)

Fibrous vegetables (like lettuce) unless cooked to death

Some food colors (reds and yellows)

I am down to fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh meats, potatoes, rice and legumes. The only processed gluten-free foods I buy are peanut butter, frozen waffles and gluten-free flour blends. I make my own sauces and dressings.

Gluten

Dairy lactose and casein (experimenting with it a little now though after 12 years)

carrots

coffee

tea

I avoid soy but don't have a reaction to it.

I rarely add sugar to anything.

Sulfites, I am still not positive about them.

Hayfever, scratch tested positive to trees and grasses and kitty cats and woofie dogs. However my allergies are much better now after being gluten-free.

Wow, so many people here react to so many foods!

I have intolerances to:

gluten

soy - I believe this caused my blunted villi, so not sure if this would make it an allergy or not.

dairy

dates

and trying to figure out if I have an intolerance to legumes? I react (GI symptoms) to peanut butter and hummus (in addition to soy) and someone just mentioned that the connection could be legumes.

Jerseyangel (or anyone) - can I ask how you react to legumes and how you figured out it was that whole family you react to?

I found out yesterday from allergy skin testing that I'm allergic to: beef, lamb, pork, egg, milk, wheat, rye, grapefruit, orange, lettuce, cabbage, potato, celery, green pepper, peaches, strawberry, and mustard. I've been wheat free and dairy light (only butter) for a year now so the rest won't be so bad except eggs and potatoes.

I react to legumes with severe nausea and stomach pain. The nausea is overwhelming, and really sets me back for a day or two.

I figured it out by process of elimination. Unfortunately, it didn't occur to me at the time that green beans were actually legumes too, so it was a while before I cut them out completely. When I did, the difference was remarkable.

Still trying to pinpoint my other intolerances. So far:

Soy

Casein

Chocolate (tried chocolate again last night....makes my heart race)

MSG

Vinegar

Peanut butter (maybe???)

Caffeine

I'm still in the process, it's been frustrating and tricky. My other intolerances cause my heart to race, which completely wipes me out. What's funny is that I've been gluten free for over 2 years now, I didn't expect other intolerances to pop up this late! Right now I'm just sticking with fresh food w/out spices or sauces, it's a bit boring, but better than being sick.
