You've just described my father, who overate white bread & freezer section Lender's bagels from the 50s-90s(wow!). He never could tolerate garlic or onions, even well cooked, or mixed into dishes. He can eat chili peppers w/out issue. One thing can cause bowel irritation & dmage, inflammation & compromise the immune system etc, then another set of things will set them off.

Last year I even got my mom off grains & beans, crappy oils etc, basically enforced Primal, cause she had a heart attack & was 5 lbs from being classified obese. 40 lbs later, weaned her off 5 of her prescription meds she's walking (no daily) & swimming (some). She's back on bread, crappy rancid oils, packaged sweets, HFCS, all of it. Enforced primal worked (it was months of conflict, complaints & arguing) but it's her life, she has the info, but chooses to take all the meds again, & is slowly gaining the weight back of course, & diverse symptoms that lessened or disappeared are back again.
We're all adults, mostly, and everyone has to find their own way, even if it choosing to suffer & accelerate one's decline.
Nice to have this community, even with dissention, bickering & conflicting info/opinions. In business, having all partners or employees being yes men, usually leads to some serious trouble over time. I've always sought partners in business with strong opinions and diverse knowledge bases and experiences, otherwise, what's they point?
