truth seeker said:The thing is, there are a few people who have said the same thing but one really can't be sure unless they get rid of them completely and then retest each food separately. For years, I thought that I could eat anything and did with little repercussions. As it turns out, I can no longer do that.liffy said:Personally I can handle higher carbohydrate loads, even after doing the low carb thing for quite a while, but as you say, there seems to be a lot of people having issues with pretty much anything other than animal food.
The same goes for me and my eldest son. After a couple of months we had some nuts and my son had some quinoa and we both suffered from bouts of diarrhea. I had some nasty cramps to go with it.
I can't seem to find any wild rice nor quinoa over here that is not packaged in the same facility together with grains, soy and so on. As my kids need more carbohydrates I have decided to make some bread with gluten free buckwheat flour. The buckwheat flour that we used beforehand was also probably contaminated with gluten. Sigh.
TS said:Well, at this point, I actually see it as an advantage to only being able to eat a few foods. In a way it's freeing - I'm getting rid of programs related to food. It's also cheaper - while everyone's rushing out to get their carb fix (which also makes one hungrier), I'm satisfied and not focused on eating or recipes. Food is simply nourishment. This definitely helps free up one's time to do other things.
It does free up one's time and I love that! Yesterday afternoon I had some sardines and I felt still hungry. I didn't eat anything else afterwards and the hunger just vanished. So it must have been a program?
TS said:Also, and take this with a huge grain of salt, but I've been wondering over the last week or so (especially in light of the new research), if the path we're on - sto which doesn't feed off, but feeds others - might mean in part that we may be heading towards a state where we eat less and less. This would certainly come in handy in a food shortage!
It would come in handy during food shortages. And I have two kids to feed, so they can have the food that is left. I used to be quite a gobbler. That really seems to be changing now.
