Find Your Personal Diet

I had to find my own diet through the process of elimination of different foods. At first, I tried eating the foods that the Dietician suggested. Her suggestions were totally wrong for me and, I found out the hard way. One-size does not fit all people when it comes to health. Food acts upon each individual differently. If you are truly serious about helping yourself and your health, find the foods you can or cannot eat through trial and error method. I found out that, I cannot eat spices of any kind. I cannot tolerate green leafy vegetables anymore, they just lay on your stomach and do not process very well. They do however produce bloating and very much gas. Any kinds of spices make me sick accept Iodine Salt, I can tolerate. They say you should not be able to tolerate dairy products, (Milk). I found out, I can tolerate 3 ounces of fat-free organic milk, not processed milk. I also found that, I cannot tolerate oils, grease, talen, or fats of any kind. So, I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead. I found it does not bother me at all as long as it is purely organic in nature. I use to have all manor of stomach, throat, and bowel problems before, I finally found out my diet which works for me personelly. Everyone of us whom suffer from Celiac Disease must go through this process of Elimination to come up with our proper diets.

I have found largely the same thing. In my case I found others who have the same issues I do. We believe that we are sensitive to very low levels of gluten. Working together we have managed to find many more foods to eat than we could have working separately. Sometimes it is the source of the food that is important. For instance like you, I couldn't manage regular milk, but I can manage milk and cheese from a local farmer who pasture raises his cows. Certain produce I can't tolerate from the store, but if I can find a source which will provide it free of coatings and low in pesticides, I can eat it just fine. Washing things very carefully helps too. I'm glad that you have managed to find foods that you can eat. It can be very challenging.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what all I can tolerate and I've been keeping a food diary for over a year. I tried an elimination diet and I felt good the first day and then poor for two or three days and then good and then back to poor. There was no gluten, soy, dairy, corn, or eggs. I'm not sure if I was de-toxing which caused the poor feelings after I started the diet, but I quit after 9 days. I seem to tolerate some milk, but I didn't seem to do that well with eggs afterwards. I'm back to currently eating gluten free and avoiding eggs. I plan to try the elimination diet again in a few weeks, but I needed a break and we have a vacation coming up. My digestion is sensitive to stress, so sometimes I don't know if food has caused me digestive problems or if it is caused by stress. I try to track events in my food diary to sort things out. I do notice a strong correlations between my gut and brain....if my gut is working well, my brain seems clear and calm. I've read that 95% of seratonin is manufactured in the gut, so it would then make sense that gut and mood would have a strong correlation.
