Basic Helpful Hints for Weight Loss
Anti-Inflammatory Diet Basics / Hypo-Allergenic Foods to Avoid
Refined sugar slows the process of detoxification and weakens the immune system.
Both alcohol and caffeine are hard on the liver. Give your liver a vacation.
Dairy products are most likely to cause allergies and can increase pain. Stay away from creamy salad dressings (ranch, creamy garlic, etc).
The most common allergies are caused by this group of foods. By avoiding these foods for a few weeks your system gets a chance to relax and clear itself out. You may not even know that you have an allergy or sensitivity to these foods because the symptoms may be so subtle.
Weight management diets are designed to lessen the burden placed on your system by eliminating many foods including those high in fats and refined and processed oils.
Meats, unless organic, are typically high in nasty ingredients such as estrogen, antibiotics, and others typical of processed foods.
These are common allergens and can contribute to pain and inflammation.
Most people discover that when dairy, wheat, and sugar are reintroduced to a diet, they find the cause of all their symptoms. For starters, you can use a pulse oximeter to read your pulse. First take your resting pulse rate in a relaxed and seated position. Test one of your potential offending foods and place it on your tongue and chew or roll it around for 30 seconds. Do not swallow. Read the pulse meter. If the food stresses you, your pulse will increase or decrease. A pulse shift of four or more beats per second from your resting pulse, would indicate a sensitivity to that food. The greater variation, the more toxic the food is to you. If you react to that food, spit it out, and rinse your mouth.
