Food Allergies and Your Metabolism

Elson M. Haas, M.D. believes that food reactions impair metabolism more than any other factor. Food reactions, to your allergic food, make it easy to lose weight and difficult to lose. Food reactions affect your metabolism, and your ability to lose weight, in four key ways:

  1. Food Allergies slow down your metabolism because it blocks nutrient absorption and because it affects your thyroid. They will block the absorption of nutrients, including essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids increase your metabolism so as to prevent their absorption will decrease (or slow down) your metabolism and your body will be more likely to store fat. Food allergy can also damage your thyroid and then you will gain weight.

  2. Allergy Foods can increase the hormones that lead to weight gain. These hormones include insulin, cortisol, and eicosanoids. If a food allergy causes your body to produce more insulin then your body will store more fat. If a food allergy causes your body to produce less insulin then you will feel hungry and want to eat more. Food allergy (and stress) can increase the amount of cortisol your body produces. As cortisol levels increase, fat burning enzyme levels decrease, leading to weight gain. Food allergy can increase the production of eicosanoids, which prevents burning of adipose tissue and ultimately leads to weight gain.

  3. Allergy Food can cause hypoglycemia which, in turn, creates a desire for food and weight.

  4. Allergy Food makes you feel sick and tired. They can cause asthma, headaches, stomach aches, ADD, ADHD, stomach aches, severe injuries, diarrhea, headaches, pain, constipation, frequent colds, insomnia, food cravings, fibromyalgia, eczema, dermatitis, colitis, colitis ulcerative, colic,, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, high blood pressure, arthritis, chronic cold, sinusitis, psoriasis, dry skin, PMS, menstrual cramps, eating disorders, chronic pain, arthritis, chronic ear infections, acne, diabetes , and many more! When you have any of these symptoms, you have no energy or motivation to do what you need to do to lose weight.

Weight Loss and Weight Loss Solutions Now that you know more about how your body's metabolism is negatively affected by your food allergy, the solution is simple: get tested for food intolerance and stop eating your allergies! Okay, I said the solution was easy but I never said it was easy.
