Burdle, Thanks for posting to my thread and telling me this was here. Thanks also for bumping it up and all the info you all give.
I had food alergies since the day I was born. Eggs, greenbeans, chocolate, and pineapple. some give rashes, and some gave sinus infection like symptoms.
my dd tested postitive for Wheat allergies when she was young. but I never noticed any symptoms.
Now I do believe I am allergic to wheat. 6 years ago I was on a whole wheat/grain, veggie, and lean meat diet that my dr. gave me. I lost lots of weight. then I gained 100lbs in 5 months. since that time I have tried everything including the beach and have not lost anything. WEll in p1 I did lose some weight but gained it back in p2. I now believe it was the wheat.
I know when I eat whole wheat pasta and brown rice I crave more and more. I can not stop at a normal serving. I will eat the whole pot even if I am full. and that is whole wheat.
I've done atkins, non fat, ww, and nothing happened. infact the nonfat diet I gained and went up to 320lbs. I started sb at 294 and got down to 283 but went back up to 294 again. then I went down and up down and up. you get the picture. so, now I am trying to do a no wheat or grains diet. I do have brown rice once a week. but two weeks ago I cheated and had thin crust pizza. and gained it all back again. you'd think I woulda
I have no idea what I weigh now. I am getting weighed tomorrow. 2 weeks ago at the gym I was 298
295 at home. I am getting weighed at the gym tomorrow.
I do have asthma. I also have lung restrictive disease. that means my lungs don't expand all the way so normally I don't get a full breath. But, I was wondering if the asthma isn't related to the wheat allergy. because on Monday I had some ww pasta, just a little and tues. I had a major asthma attack that lasted two days. But, I was also kicking butt with exercise and have been told I have exercise induced asthma.
I am also wondering if I should not have brown rice at all? My mom has stopped all grains and has lost weight.
the doctor also told me no cheese, my triglycerides are high. My son cant eat cheese because he is highly allergic to mold and a lot of cheese causes him to have nose bleeds and vomit at night.
so, if I can't have eggs, cheese, whole wheat, or grains - Am I still doing the beach??? I can have egg beaters I think.
I have asthma, I think the ww just affects it. like asprin, advil etc. will also set off an attack.
