Dairy & Egg Allergy - New Protein Supplementation

Answered on September 03, 2013

Hey all -

Recently had a fairly comprehensive food allergy test done and had a few questions and was hoping to get a discussion going on the subject.

So, Dairy and Egg were off the charts for me. Dairy I've suspected for some time and have kept my intake of that reasonably low the past ten years or so. Egg is a huge bummer, I eat a lot of eggs. Beef was "moderate to high" as was Chicken.

My more direct question is: can I supplement protein with Whey, as I have been the past few years. Its good Whey - Whey isolate, etc.. If not, can anyone recommend a good protein supplement. Soy? I don't like soy too much. And I do the best I can with paleo diet and Soy is not a part of that.

My more general "discussion" is that I really have never felt any allergic symptoms. My gut rumbles a bit with too much dairy, and it used to make me break out a bit, so I've mostly cut it out. Itchy skin sometimes, I guess. But i (knocking on wood here) never get sick and have been healthy most of my life.

How do food allergies work, exactly. Dairy is easy enough to cut out. But egg? Its in a lot of things. It's in my favorite meal: breakfast. The horror! Baked goods have a lot of egg, right?

At least it wasn't beer, but I'm real sad about this.

My son and I just had to give up both dairy and eggs. He loves smoothies, so now I add gelatin to them for protein. And I use coconut milk for creamy fatness. We used to use yogurt. I find that for baking chia eggs work well. I really miss eggs with cheese...sigh! Was it a actually allergy? or just a "sensitivity"? If it's just a sensitivity hopefully you will get to add it back after you've done a bit of healing...

Yes good question and good answer as well. Going through the natural means is only ultimate way to success. And one more thing that must be shared is one should initiate the muscle building practices in the early teenage, only in this way you can avoid supplementation of any type as we have several example like Arnold and Bruce Lee http://www.musclezx90prijs.com/

Supplementing with whey sounds like the most convenient option. But you didn't mention anything about seafood. I wouldn't recommend eating it on a daily basis but fish is an excellent source of protein and omega-3s.

Not having any symptoms to food allergies is pretty scary when you think about how much damage it has done internally that you aren't aware of. The best thing to do here is an elimination diet; eliminate eggs from your diet for at least a month; reintroduce it back into your diet and see how you feel.

Just curious what kind of allergy test you took. It is possible that you got a false positive.

P.S. Not sure why you are worried about "baked goods" that contain eggs. Baked goods shouldn't be a part of your diet anyway.
