Did You Know Food Allergies Can Affect Weight Gain?
Food intolerances, inflammation and weight gain are intimately related. When you have an allergic reaction to foods, it causes inflammation that triggers your adrenal glands. The hormones secreted destabilize your body's blood sugar levels. A higher level of insulin being secreted by the pancreas can cause your body to retain excess fat rather than allowing you to burn it for energy. Too much stored fat can promote additional inflammation that triggers new allergic responses.
Studies suggest that millions of people suffer from food allergies. Some have severe reactions that can be life threatening. Although food allergies seem to be more prevalent in children, adults often fail to recognize their sensitivity to eating certain foods, as symptoms may be minor. So, the challenge for anyone who suffers food allergies is to identify which food products contain ingredients that trigger inflammation.
Eight Common Food Allergies
The eight common foods that most often cause an allergic reaction include:
- Soy Products
- Tree Nuts
Children often outgrow their food allergies, but that's normally not the case with adult food allergies or food intolerances. You have much to gain from a menu plan that helps you control blood sugar levels.
