Hi! I would like to hear about anybodys experience with a food intolerance. Egg, milk, wheat, etc.
What were your symptoms and how did you feel/what happened to your body when you cut the offender out?
I'm on my first day of eliminating eggs, so I'm curious what other people have experienced in this type of situation!

Well I can tell you eggs messed with my body for sure! I eliminated them for a few weeks, and after 1 day of adding them back, my symptoms flared- bloating and constipation. Another food I would never have expected to cause me symptoms is beans! They make my joints ache and give me pretty extreme fatigue. Cutting beans out as well as taking adrenal support supplements has nearly cut these symptoms totally out of my life. phew! And Gluten of course is also a big one. When I eat gluten, I look like i'm 3 months pregnant. When I cut out gluten, I still have bloating (im still figuring out why that is), but it is significantly reduced and I am much more confident with my body as well as comfortable in my daily life.
Other foods/group I have been told to eliminate are the nightshade family, sugar, soy, dark leafy greens (broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts, etc.)... I don't know what type of elimination diet thing you are trying, but if you haven't actually tried the elimination diet, you should!! If you have few food intolerances, the diet can last just a few weeks. Its a fun, informative challenge if nothing else!
