Hello. I just came across this team and joined. I've got a question: When it says Allergic does that mean intolerance? I understand there is a difference between the two.

In April 2008 my doctor tested me and found that I am intolerant to: Gluten, Dairy, Egg and Soy. That changed my life. I read every label now and ask lots of questions when eating out.

I do most of my grocery shopping at Trader Joe's which has the best and most interesting food choices for those with food allergies or an intolerance. And, for special treats/events I go to a local bakery that also caters to that as well.

When I go shopping it's like a scavenger hunt now, a happy little challenge.

It's nice to meet all of you. Thank you for the info. I notice if I eat egg whites (in a sandwich for example) that my stomach is off all day and my eyes get puffy. I think if it's mixed into food it doesn't have the same effect.

Attitude is everyting, so choose a good one.

I'm allergic to eggs, milk, and a ton of other things (like beef, pork, chicken, wheat, oats, apples, oranges, etc.). Pretty much anything that I eat on a regular basis. I just rotate my trigger foods out and in and that helps for me.
Quite honestly though, for losing weight, don't worry so much about what the experts suggest. Fine your foods that work for you, that you enjoy and that nourish your body. Then eat those. Track them and gradually jsut cut back your portions. It is much better all around to "diet" like that and will probably help you to stick to it better in the future.

Hi. I'm new to the team and looking forward to meeting people. I am lucky in that I have very mild/minor food allergies. Unfortunately what I'm allergic to are the foods most commonly recommended for people to eat when losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I'm hoping to find ideas and substitutes for these foods. A few foods are: egg whites, rice and whole grains! I'd love to know if anyone shares my situation.

Attitude is everyting, so choose a good one.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten.
