Thread: Let's say you're not intolerant to gluten (etc), but you avoid it for years

    I don't think that I'm gluten intolerent. I don't have problems having trace amounts of it (like when my wee boy puts half of his mince pie in my mouth when we're out in public. it's easier just to eat that thing)
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I am gluten intolerant, however, I don't believe that everyone is better off avoiding gluten entirely.

    I agree that if you can tolerate it, you're probably best off keeping your system on its toes by consuming it in moderation.

    I've never had a problem with grains, or foodstuffs for that matter, and have always been one of those people with an "iron-clad" stomach. However we vacationed in the Caribbean this past spring and up until that point had been eating very clean, grain-free, gluten-free, primal, etc., and on our last day I pigged out on the breakfast buffet. It was all fair game. I ate toast, waffles, you name it. The next day I felt absolutely horrible. I didn't put it together at the time because it just didn't make sense why I felt so bad. Gluten intolerance? Or tired from the trip and perhaps I just plain ate too much food?

    Came off a whole30 and strict paleo and loosened up a bit for a trip to Vegas. I didn't pig out, stayed paleo but made adjustments To account for strange oils and mildly processed meats.

    I had some lettuce wraps one night and ordered a margarita. Bad move. Had about 1/8 of the drink.... Couldn't stomach it. Puked before I made it to the casino. Twice. Lesson learned

    I don't have a gluten ntolerance but I think our body adapts to the way were eating. Once we stray from that our body gets shocked! I felt hungover the next day and disgusting all bc of a few sips of nasty alcohol. Totally not worth it!

    Interesting, yeah I can relate to that.

    Is it possible to have a tolerance built up to grains and then have stomach issues when eating real food, sort of the opposite?
