As many as 80-90% of the population has some form of adverse reaction to one or more foods or additives. Eating the offending foods results in a broad range of symptoms such as migraine headaches, weight gain, chronic exhaustion, hyperactivity (ADD), arthritis, respiratory and skin disorders.
The food types we can react to include many foods generally considered to be healthy and nutritious. Many of these are consumed whilst on a weight loss regime: lettuce, cucumber, tuna, chicken and lemon being examples. Even garlic and coffee can trigger such an adverse reaction.
In fact, many of the foods that you are intolerant of are the very foods that you are addicted to!
When the offending food is consumed, an inflammatory reaction occurs, with the body mounting an immune response towards it. This can produce a multitude of reactions within the body, such as eczema, allergic rhinitis and migraine. Changes in brain serotonin levels mimics depression and triggers a craving for sweet foods. Eating these simple sugars produces temporary relief, but brings with it an insulin surge that causes further craving for sugars. It is this vicious cycle that results in the failure of so many attempts at losing weight.
It may not be your fault that you are fat. Identifying your hidden food intolerance could help you lose weight.
The ALCAT Food Intolerance Test looks at your body’s reaction to 150 common foods and 20 chemicals/food additives. Eliminating the culprits may help you achieve your weight and health goals.
