Food allergies and intolerances -
diverse and individual symptoms
Delayed food intolerances can contribute to obesity or difficulty losing weight. Many factors may influence an individual’s weight. According to scientific results, excess weight is due mainly to an imbalance of energy intake from the diet and energy expenditure (through physical activities and bodily functions). Most of the excess calorie intake is due to the high amount of carbohydrates and sugar in today’s Western diet. Did you know that a delayed food intolerance might be inducing a chronic inflammatory condition in your body?
Did you know that a delayed food intolerance could slow down the utilization of sugar and contributes to its conversion into fat?
Inflammation is one of the biggest drivers of weight gain. Chronic systemic low grade inflammation blocks your insulin receptors and thus leads to resistance to insulin. This means that your cells become gradually unable to use the sugar present in your blood. Not only, will you experience a lack of energy, but also this excess sugar will be transformed into fat and stored in your fat tissue.
Chronic inflammation also blocks the use of these fats as energy source.
One possible effect: Cravings become part of your daily experience.
As a result, there is an increase in body weight and it will be difficult for you to lose weight. On the long run, metabolic diseases might develop.
You have to identify your personal trigger foods that lead to chronic low grade inflammation. Furthermore, you need to avoid these foods for a certain time to allow your body to make better use of the supplied energy. Your insulin sensitivity will increase, thus preventing possible metabolic diseases. At the same time, you will have fewer cravings and you will automatically reduce your calorie intake, particularly the amount of carbohydrates and sugar. This will enable you to convert your calories into physical strength instead of fat.
IgG seems to be the best indicator for identifying a food as being pro-inflammatory. Studies have shown that an IgG guided diet may have a positive effect on weight loss and on stabilization of the glucose metabolism. The ImuPro blood test measures high levels of IgG antibodies to foods in the blood, detecting which foods may trigger pro-inflammatory reactions of the body’s immune system. By avoiding these foods, impaired fat metabolism and metabolic processes can return to normal. This will make it easier for you to lose weight.
