How to Reduce Top 3 Food Allergy Symptoms of Weight Gain, Pain, & Inflammation. Atlanta, Ga.

Hi, I am Alane a certified, holistic nutritionist and I have personally experienced food allergy symptoms and the results have been life-changing. Once I figured it out, the easy weight loss results have been remarkable.

Being a busy woman and going through the “change” has not been easy, especially regarding menopausal weight gain, joint pain, and food intolerance. I run yearly blood tests on myself to know that my metabolism is working optimally and I eat as healthy as possible.

In 2018 I started having symptoms of food reactions and needed to figure out which foods were the culprits. I was eating healthy, but even some of the typical food I usually eat (even gluten-free foods) were now causing reactions, even in small amounts. I thought I would avoid the food if I just knew what the problem foods were.

I had apparent lactose intolerance when I was young, so I avoided dairy. As I got older, I developed Celiac disease and haven’t had gluten. But when I would eat any food, even healthy foods, I started to feel inflamed, gained weight, and felt tired. Not OK!

My other food allergy symptoms were:

  • Bloating after certain meals
  • Redness in my face
  • Fatigue after certain meals
  • Sudden blemishes
  • Itchiness
  • Sneezing attacks

I took my advice and ordered a food allergy test to learn which foods were causing the food allergy symptoms I did not want to have anymore. Everyone is different, so one diet is not necessarily going to work for everyone.

I love parsnips! OK, stop laughing. Have you ever heard of a parsnip? It looks like a white carrot. I love cooking sweet potato, parsnips, zucchini, acorn, or butternut squash with something green like broccoli and putting grass-fed butter on top. But when I make that side dish, I feel and look like I gained 10 pounds overnight. What is the issue? And when I eat cashew butter (organic, of course) or almond butter, I tend to gain weight. But people doing the keto diet eat good fat and drop weight, so again, I was confused.

I got my blood tests back, and they helped me tremendously with my daily diet. No surprise but parsnips, beef, corn, and all of the nuts I enjoyed showed up as severe food intolerance and were causing food allergy symptoms, even in small amounts.

So I edited my favorite recipe to broccoli, butternut squash, orange beets, and cauliflower, and instead of butter which has casein in it, I use olive oil. No bloating or weight gain afterward! YAY! And on a side note, as I adjusted my diet, a remarkable side effect was less pain and inflammation. YAY, I could do more activities with my family without hurting when I got home.
