Sorry for taking so long to reply to you. I've been busy studying for my own exams which are coming up next week.
It sounds like you're making some positive steps to kick this condition into touch. How's it going so far, any improvement yet?
Personally I seem to have taken two steps forward and one back, but I don't think that points to a failure in the PB diet at all. I gave up the grains and very quickly started feeling better, though to avoid that whole dying of malnutrition thingy reintroduced foods that I'd eliminated like milk, eggs and soy protein and boosted my consumption of legumes to compensate for the calorie deficit.
If it's the lectins I'm sensitive to then this could be explained by eating lots of beans, eggs and dairy. I know the true PB diet is all about the meat, but I'm reticent to go back to it because I was beginning to like the whole veggie/vegan ethos and actually enjoying the food. Just looking at all the grease that comes out of meat as it cooks now makes me want to retch and I'm still struggling to get my head around how making saturated fat your main source of energy can be healthy.
Maybe I could keep up the veggie diet but soak everything to remove as many of the lectins as possible. *Sigh* When did the act of eating become so damn complicated?
I've got an appointment with an immunologist next week so hopefully she'll be able to shine a light on some of this to eliminate the guesswork.
Good to hear PB is working for you Grappler.
