Not exactly gluten related but....

Hidden

When I had been tested for food intolerance they found I’m intolerant for gluten, wheat, casein, protein or milk from cow, sheep and goat. I can understand the gluten and wheat problem and since from that day I’ve been eating and drinking gluten free. Saw a big difference ofc. Although I lost about 6 kilos, is it normal to loose that weight? Anways, I can’t understand well if I’m lactose intolerant or intolerant for every drink, protein that comes from milk, sheep or lamb that I guess it’s casein. If I am casein intolerant does it mean I can’t drink or eat something that is lactose free? If a thing that has a lable says it’s vegan is it safe to consume it? Few minutes ago I have consumed an Ice Cream and the owner told me it’s vegan so the ingredients doesn’t come from a cow(dairy free I guess) but I’m getting a bit paranoid, heightned my anxiety about it, thinking it’s going to harm me. Is there someone here expect he is gluten intolerant, is casein intolerant please? If yes can I have some tips and help me understand how this works. Thanks

Casein is the protein, lactose is the sugar in milk. So, lactose free won’t hrlp. Vegan ice cream will be fine unless it has something else you are sensitive to (gums etc -I have to be careful to read sorbet labels as they often have gums to stop them being too hard)

Oh thanks for let me understand. I’m still confused about gums, is there any way I get tested for it? Last time I ate some gums and I felt they did me a bit discomfort in the stomach. Sorberts are safe for me then?

There’s no particular reason you would be troubled by gums that I know of but I am. Homemade or traditional sorbet would be fruit and water and sugar and perhaps a bit of booze to lower the freezing temp and keep it scoopable.

I am super sensitive to lots of things -I just work it out by testing myself and seeing how I react. I have a really long list of things I avoid.

Dear Kyle,

Can I recommend a diet that consists almost entirely of fruit? This is what our monkey ancestors ate and what our gut and bodies are still best adapted to.

See the book on Chronic fatigue by Ronnie Smith amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_no...

A fruit diet is recommended as a cure for chronic fatigue syndrome since fruit uses far less energy to digest than animal-derived products and leaves more of your scarce energy supply available for day-to-day living. It costs just a couple of pounds for the Kindle edition and is well worth the money.

So the diet consists 90% of it fruit only? Yup I know that fruit diet is one of the healthiest thing you can digest. In fact I need something healthy to boost my energy because lately fatigue is taking action and I'm bit sick of it. I will buy the book and check it out for sure. The problem is if the diet consists a lot of exotic fruit, it's a bit difficult here to get them, or at least if I get them, they are way to much expensive :(

Fruit has lots of sugar -if you could mostly eat vegetables and occasional fruit that would work. I eat occasional organic chicken breast and make bone broth as I have rubbish joints, otherwise try to have mostly veg of which there is a massive variety and much of it is very cheap.

Eating some fruit is a good idea but eating only fruit may not give you all the nutrients you need. If you can avoid eating too much ready-made or packaged foods and concentrate on eating more vegetables and good quality protein, this may help you. Cooking from scratch is a good idea, there are some tasty GF recipes on the Healthy Eating site on HU.

Well to be honest, now a days I started to be aware what to eat mostly when the food is ready-made or packaged, as you said. I started to eat vegetables more often than I used to also chicken and fish.

But I'm being afraid when I am going for a long vacation in South East Asia. How to let them understand I need to eat gluten and dairy free food :( Hate being contaminated...

We evolved as omnivores, otherwise we would not have been able to live successfully in so many different places on earth. Being fruitarian is a choice.

Yup I believe it's a choice.

Hey

I had same problem ... it really hard to figure it all out. I found the gluten free easy i basically eat clean , veg and meat, fruit and gluten free food. The milk thing was another thing but what i did was go totally dairy free as in i do not eat it at all... i am totally plant based or nut based... soya milk and no dairy cheese.... it just not worth trying it..

Yes the weight thing... i went from 10st to 8st in about 3 months! And i am now 8st 7 , so ur learn that u can and cant eat and ur start putting on weight again but ur never b as big as ut cutting out all the bad foods. I dont eat any bread anymore even gluten free as i think i have a yeast allergy.

There so much food out there now so once u get in swing of it ur b fine.

Hi, you may be a little confused about the difference between casein the protein and lactose the sugar. I can't tolerate the casein but have no problem with lactose. I have found that I can eat milk products where the protein has been "altered" as in cheese, where the protein is changed by the addition of rennet. I can also drink milk that has been boiled, and I mean boiled not just warmed up. Boiling causes the protein to "clump" as can be seen from the skin on the milk. Good quality yoghurts and cream are also OK but steer clear of the cheap stuff as they either have some milk residue in them or have been thinned with milk. I find that even a small amount of milk, a teaspoon of so, will have a dramatic effect on me. It does mean that you have to buy food quality products but that does not always mean popular or expensive brands.
