onions everyday?

Commented on June 03, 2014

Onions have become a core component of my diet. I am using them almost as a rice or pasta alternative. I'll cook a whole vidalia onion then throw in some leafy greens to make a sort of onion based stir fry.

Are there any particular health concerns associated with eating lots of onions?

I used to get free onions driving behind farmer trucks. You had to pick out the rocks and avoid getting hit by one. But they were nice and fresh.

I would edit to say "Onions are a good food."

The only concern with onions -- this is one food I always buy organic (that is when my garden is low). They soak up pesticides.

Consuming onions CANNOT give you SIBO. If you already have SIBO, than yes, onions can be bothersome. However, if you don't have SIBO, onions are fine. As a matter of fact, Terry Wahls recommends "no day without an onion" due to their high sulfur content. Make sure to use different kinds of onions, i.e. scallions, red, etc.

Onion is one of the highest sources of fermentable fiber, which means too much can give you SIBO.

You'll reek of onions if you eat too many. Other than that, not really.

Standard onion utilization could be useful in overseeing diabetes, asthma and hypertension and in addition helping counteract disease. Because of over utilization of onion stomach is not able to process most sugars and they must pass into the guts where microbes can break down the sugar in a process that structures gas. Since onions commonly hold fructose, this could be a wellspring of gas for some individuals

None other than bad breath and garlic would be healthier. Onions are a good food for frying in butter.
