I am patiently awaiting my full LEAP/MRT food sensitivity results booklet at the moment. Luckily, I am able to start avoiding the following foods that I’ve tested as highly reactive to:
- Whey protein
- Cane Sugar
- Yellow Squash
- Sweet Potato
So, how do I feel about this list? Well, I am overjoyed that bananas, eggs, honey, other nuts, seafood and shellfish, olives, coconut and many veggies are not on it. I feel like perhaps I can eventually get back to being pescetarian (or at least 90%).
What’s odd is that while I know I am likely testing highly reactive to some items that I have daily, there are others that I rarely or never knowingly ingest (pork, kamut, tilapia, sweet potato, leek, cane sugar, & mint). Those items that I have been eating daily are more likely truly “caution” foods that I may be able to rotate into the diet weekly later on, but they’ve built up from my bombarding my gut with them. Those are the carrots, zucchini, asparagus, apples, berries, and almonds. Cauliflower and I have never gotten along, so that wasn’t a shock to see. And, I hate corn.
I took the LEAP blood test on Wednesday of last week (07/26/17). Earlier that morning I had my IBD panels done through my GI doctor. My c-reactive protein (non-cardiac) came back in the normal range (3.1) and my vitamin D is up from 26 to 57 in just 2 months. All of my other test results were in the normal ranges. Such excellent news all around.
Oh, and I’m still doing well with my nicotine experiment and staying true to the specific carbohydrate diet. Life is good today.
