Can certain foods give you the shits even though they don't cause you any other symptoms of intolerance?
I love peanut butter. I am not in the slightest allergic to nuts - I eat them all the time. But since I bought a jar of pb a few weeks back I have realised that I get the runs within 30 mins of eating some. I coudln't work out what was causing it before but I had a lightbulb moment this morning! It has to be the pb - there is no other common factor.
Ooh interesting. I went through a phase of that - reacting to any kind of wheat a few years ago. I took myself off wheat for a while but was able to reintroduce it again gradually. I don't eat that much bread now but I do eat pasta - so I don't think it can be wheat again.
DH eats peanuts - peanut butter occasionally, roasted/salted nuts, nutty chocolate etc with no problem at all. Last night he refused to eat a monkey nut cos he says they give him the shits. Even though they're the same freaking thing
I have the same problem with Pork, particularly if it has been frozen. The rest of the family can have the same meal with no problems but I end up on the loo a couple of hours later. It is not evey time either.
mal- a garlic intolerance (and onion is in the same family) can be due to malabsorbtion of sulphur- you need to eat more legumes to counteract this (eg eat french beans with chicken kiev etc) I too have a garlic intolerance! andahatredofgreenvegetables
