Gluten was easy to identify as antagonistic to my health because of how titanic the changes were between eating and removing it. Nonetheless, similar but more subdued symptoms persist and I have take upon myself to finally deal with an exhaustive food elimination process, including a detailed diary of my daily variations on 5 major elements :
New acne lesions/rashes
The protocol is fairly simple : I ate only tubers and veggies I had high confidence in for a week, then added one new suspicious items every 3 days and ate a moderate amount of it.
So far, I’ve been able to successfully identify unfermented soy as a trigger of acne lesions and brown rice as the source of mild stomach pain (3/10) and truly debilitating mental fatigue (7-9/10) in the following days. I cannot say whether white rice – or even any other grains – would produce the same effect, as I’m unwilling to experiment further before first getting over the rice-induced “cognitive coma”.
On the other hand, thankfully, I’ve been able to evaluate as risk-free every legumes, fruits and vegetables I tried so far, including members of the reviled nightshade family.
Here are my questions :
What reliable resources would you recommend in the context of a food trial? Or any general advices?
Do you have any suggestion of food/item I should be cautious of? I don’t consume animal products of any kind and I cook all my own food, so no need to advise me in these regards!
