Gluten Allergy – Feel Better After Eating it, Lousy Next Day

If you have a gluten allergy or wheat allergy, why would it be that you feel better right after eating it, but lousy the next day?

This seems like a strange reaction.  It might be enough to convince you that you’re not really allergic to gluten.

Pay attention to what happens the next day, not what happens right after.  Here’s why:

In many ways, a food allergy is like an addiction.  Eating the food seems to satisfy some inner urge.  You might feel good right after eating the food.  Or you might feel worse right away.  Either way, there seems to be some force compelling you to self-destructive behavior – eating what you know is not good for you.

For some reason our bodies often crave what we are allergic to.  That’s one of the reasons it is so hard to deal with cutting out the foods you know you’re allergic to.

If you have a wheat allergy or a gluten allergy, the problem is worse because foods containing gluten and wheat are so common.

So you might feel great right after eating your forbidden food, but what happens the next day?

Many foods have a delayed allergic reaction.  There may be no symptoms for hours, even days after consuming the food.  This too is a problem, because without the immediate negative feedback to eating the food, with out the slap, it is very hard to learn deep in your core that a particular food is bad for you.

So the next day (or later) the allergy catches up with you, and you feel lousy.

Worse, when you feel lousy, it is harder to avoid the food you are allergic too, because it can be much harder to think.

The only solution is to make avoiding the foods that make you sick a religion. 

If you have a gluten allergy, a wheat allergy, or any other kind of food allergy, avoid the foods that make you ill, or suffer endless cycles of misery.

What are your experiences with avoiding the foods you’re allergic to?
