    At home Food Sensitivity Testing anyone?

    Hello,
    I am R1 VLCD 3 injections....I was last on this diet in 2012 and lost 45 pounds. Gradually I gained back 15-20 pounds over the span of 3 years. It is premenopause , however, that has caused a starting increase in my weight in the last 2 years. The distribution of weight is most startling....Anyone see Tim Allen in the Santa Clause when he visits the doctor after his starting sudden increase in weight? . It is now all in my stomach...I went from being the smallest I have ever been to the heaviest a little over 5 years.

    This protocol is life transforming...For me, however, I noticed that I had a tremendous amount of trouble locking in at P3 and looked forward to my next round, so I could be done with the trauma of having to do day after day of correction days...I noted a couple of food sensitivities including cheese (which I love) and even trace amounts of regular or modified corn starch.

    Has anyone tried one of those comprehensive at home food sensitivity tests to identify their potential triggers in advance of moving on to p3?.. I am wondering if I can better tailor p3 to better stabilize.

    I haven't tried them, but everything I've ever read about food sensitivity testing (at home or not) says they're notoriously unreliable.

    Elimination diets (though they take more effort than testing) are one of the best ways to find out food sensitivites. P2 of HCG is basically an elimination diet. That means that you really can get an idea of food sensitivities as you introduce things in P3.

    It sounds like you have a good start on figuring out your problem foods from your last round.

    You might want to take a look at Lyn Genet Recitas's "The Metabolism Plan". It walks you through a process that lets you find friendly foods for your body that can actually help you lose, not just ones that derail your efforts.

    Any kind of allergy blood test is a total waste of money. Case in point-I let my naturopath talk me into blood tests this past year, about 9 months ago. The test showed sensitivity to some strange things and not to others that I KNEW were a problem. I'd been having a major problem with diarrhea and had hoped to pinpoint the issue. Nope, that didn't work. I did the Lyn-Genet Recitas diet and discovered it was spices causing the problem and they hadn't shown up on the blood test at all, though it tested for those spices.

    Interesting. I was trained in classical cooking techniques in culinary school by a number of instructors. A Nepalese chef, who had been trained in Indian medicine as his family business, shared with us a number of spices/herbs that had healing properties for a variety of conditions. It hadn't occurred to me that many of these herbs and spices could cause allergic reactions, but it completely makes sense. Out of curiosity, if you don't mind my asking what spice/spices are you sensitive to?

    In my case it was pepper and cumin, of all things!
