So, what really happened then? As it turns out, my body can't seem to accept and process corn among many other items. This is what doctor's would now call -- Food Intolerance. Very different from Food Allergies, mind you. As the latter is more related to affecting one's immune system which causes blockage in the breathing passage or small rashes would appear. Food intolerance is our body's way of reacting abnormally towards certain food items. It can then cause the feeling of bloatedness, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome, weight gain and a lot more. Unlike Food Allergies, Food Intolerance manifests its symptoms at a much slower pace.
For someone who loves to eat, it can be quite tiring to make random guesses on what food items my body is intolerant too. The only way to find out once and for all was to take the Food Intolerance Test which I finally did last December.
After a month, I received my result via email.
I'm glad though that I can still have most proteins, fruits and veggies. I really want to follow this to a T as I know it will be best for my health but such a big change can't happen overnight. At the moment, I'm taking it one step at a time. Definitely sayonara to milk and corn while I'm starting to ease off on the other items too. Let's see how this goes in a year's time.
