Eliminating foods from your diet
« on: December 19, 2020, 03:54:58 AM »
Much has been said about what to eat to lead a healthy lifestyle, but I want to talk about the opposite; what not to eat.

And as strange as it might be, but eliminating certain foods, even food we consider healthy like vegetables, bread, and fruit can have a very positive effect on your organism.

Over the last few months I have eliminated, or at least, vastly reduced the amount of certain foods I used to consume and so far the results have been very positive.

Through a trial and error process I have eliminated most breads (except an occasional pizza on cheat days :)), all sweet peppers, unpeeled tomatoes, and red/white potatoes, reduced my sugar intake by eating less fruit (no apples, pears, bananas, but more blue/black berries and especially avocados) and by eating more vegetables like mushrooms, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus.

The results: I used to have a problem with bloating and gas, gone. Without going into too much detail, my bowel movements are infinitely better. My energy levels have increase and I'm sleeping better. As I mentioned in another thread, my allergies have all but disappeared.

I naturally lost some weight (not my intention) as I have increase my protein intake and replace many carbs with "good" fats.

Bottom line; isn't just about what you eat, but what you don't eat as well. I've never been much of a soda guy, but I did consume juice like it was going out of style thinking it healthy, it's not. Reducing sugar levels is critical to healthy living even if it comes from sources we think as healthy, e.g. apples, pears, bananas.

Many of today's health problems originate from basic eating habits and eliminating toxic food from your diet has been shown to improve you health much more than simple calorie restriction.

I'll take the above over a vaccine for protection against coronavirus any day.

I've noticed certain foods cause gas and bloating. Bread especially. Even brown organic rolls. I've mostly cut those out and the problem went away.

I've also reduced fruit juices a little too.

Whats wrong with peeled tomatoes though?

Beer gives me bloating and gas. So having to cut back on my intake.
I’ve reduced fruit juice as well. I do eat bananas regularly as they offer a good combination of essential vitamins and minerals.

Me too with beer, no such problem with Whiskey :)

As fas as food, to me its all about balance.
like many things in life, trying to be healthy is good.
Quality of foods, more natural is better on any level.

Also I do not want to live a life void of everything I enjoy.
Getting to live longer doesn't mean much if I never lived to begin with.
There is nothing permanent except change.

That’s the hard bit, finding the right balance in eating healthy stuff and food that you enjoy.

You have a gluten intolerance. Usually, gluten and casein (milk products) intolerance go together.
Fruit juices are high in calories. Not the best fit for weight loss.

You have eliminated too many foods. It's better to do an allergy test to do more precise elimination.
Allergy is a creepy thing. For example, in children, it can mimic ADHD symptoms.

For how long could a human being survive on one banana a day?

Perhaps a very petite woman could go a while but a 220 lb man like me would literally start starving after a week or two.

It is reassuring that some do not take everything so seriously. I say eat and be merry, in moderation.

Personally I avoid fat fried food and over processed 'food' products.

But I am curious I enjoy a variety of fruit (often in season) and use honey, a teaspoon to sweeten coffee, tea and muselli with yughurt. I was always under the impression that 'sugar' glucose/sucrose divided into easily digested and less danger natural sugar as opposed to refined sugar that is unhealthy usually from beets (Europe) or cane (Central America/Caribbean area. Is this misguided?

Curious to hear opinions about the differences. I have a feeling sugar is perhaps more evil than tobacco.

Наверное каждый на определенном этапе жизни приходит к тому что начинает корректировать свой рацион. Это может быть желание сбросить вес, рекомендации доктора или вынужденная мера. А реакция в виде диспептических явлений на какой-то продукт всё таки индивидуальна, я бы не решилась утверждать что какой-то продукт у всех обязательно вызовет вздутие или ещё что-то  :)

Probably everyone at a certain stage of life comes to the fact that they begin to adjust their diet. This could be a desire to lose weight, a doctor's recommendation, or a compulsory measure. And the reaction in the form of dyspeptic phenomena to some product is still individual, I would not dare to say that some product will certainly cause bloating in everyone or something else.

Just made it though the second year of my seasonal allergies in May after starting my fasting/elimination regimen almost 3 years ago.

Because all roads out of Moscow have been closed (yes I could travel, but not during 2020 and with restrictions this year) I decided to stay in Moscow and tough it out for better or worse.

During the lockdown in 2020, I was dreading the coming of spring  because there was no escaping, but viola, no symptoms at al, AT ALL, much to my surprise. I started intermittent fasting in summer 2018 and spent May 2019 in LA that year as usual to flee from my annual month of hell.

I'm happy to report that my allergies have again radically improved. While I attribute it to a number of things, I'm thoroughly convinced fasting has been the main reason. But, eliminating certain foods has had a beneficial affect as well.

For the last 10 years or so, I have had to basically leave the city in May because of my allergies. The couple of years I decided to stay were brutal. To give you an idea, I remember one time travelling from Aeroport to Sokol on the green line in the metro (for those familiar) and sneezing the whole way there (approximately 2 minutes sneezing every 3-5 seconds).

I mean one sneeze after another.  I remember getting off the train at Sokol because people were looking at me like I had the plague. :-[

And I haven't even begun to talk about continually itching, burning eyes, runny nose, debilitating fatigue, shortness of breath, scratchy throat, lungs on fire, well, I think you get the picture; a miserable existence 24/7.

In the States I could pop a Claritin and be good to go for the rest of the day. Here, Claritin does nothing. I've tried all the allergy medications here and nothing works.

Now I didn't start fasting with the hope that it wood "fix" my allergies, but here we are.

I have read that fasting can change/strengthen your immune system, and that is exactly what it has done for me.

I also think fasting has the ability to "fix" other illnesses from type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease  to certain cancer morbidities and fight off viruses as well when combined with good nutrition, exercise and sleep eventually without the need for medication. No, not a cure all, just reversing the condition of your organism.

I really don't even think about coronavirus much less worry about getting it. IOW, I believe in my immune system.

Here are some of the foods I have eliminated or drastically reduced from my diet or changes I have made:

Milk - I'm starting to think this was a big reason why my allergies were so severe. Not only has eliminating milk helped my allergies, it has also greatly improve my digestion and lingering stomach issues, which BTW are no longer an issue.

Sugar - while I haven't completely eliminated sugar (virtually impossible), reducing the amount of processed sugar in my diet has had numerous beneficial effects such as improved sleep, digestion, less inflammation and given me a much more consistent energy level throughout the day.

Potatoes - I haven't completely eliminated potatoes, but have drastically reduced eating them. I replaced them with sweet potatoes. Why? Potatoes spike insulin levels, especially if eaten hot, whereas sweet potatoe spikes insulin at about half the range.

Junk food - I haven't had any junk food in a long time. I think most know about the negatives of junk food, although it's hard to pass up a double-double with cheese at In-and-Out burger in So Cal. :P

Process foods in general - white/bleached flour, deli meats, additives, and any product with more than 8 ingredients. The more the ingredients, the more chemicals, simple.

Certain foods particular to me - this is an individual choice based on one's specific set of circumstances. For example, some people might be affected by peanuts, gluten, etc. and this is really where you have to take notice of your body's response after consuming something.

I can only eat apples seasonally, but have completely eliminated them because at certain times they make my throat swell up to the point of almost completely restricting my breathing and leave me with a very scratchy throat.

Almonds do the same, but pistachios, walnuts, pumpkin/sunflower seeds, peanuts and cashews are fine.

One thing to keep in mind is that my diet doesn't want for taste. Matter of fact, I'm not only eating better/healthier, but what I'm eating tastes better than my old diet and certainly what restaurants and fast food places offer.

Another common belief is "everything in moderation".

While there's nothing generally wrong with that statement, it doesn't take into account what is now considered a problem among people who eat many times during the day, albeit in moderation; insulin spikes.

Every time you eat you're spiking insulin. Research strongly suggests that the less you spike insulin the better your overall health.

So, moderation, ok. But really, eat what you're going to eat in one sitting. Eating 4-5 times during the day is not recommended, nor is snacking between meals for reason stated above.

Bottom line; the fewer times you eat, the fewer times you spike insulin, the better your organism works and better obviously for your overall health (I eat 2 times a day, but quite a lot when I do).

I'm pretty similar in most respects to this. I only have milk in omelettes, coffee and tea, I avoid potatoes, I avoid junk and most processed foods. I avoid anything that has in it ingredients we don't use naturally. So E numbers and anything nobody uses in the kitchen isn't necessary. I keep it pretty simple now with a lot of BBQ meat and veg, stuff from the farm up the road often, eggs, etc. I make more things like Chilli con Carne now as I know what goes in it.

I substituted cauliflower for potatoes with a recipe I found on the internet. To tell you the truth, I have never been a big cauliflower eater, but this recipe changed that.

I bet if you blindfolded someone and had them taste it, they would think they're eating potatoes. Cauliflower is also more nutrient dense with much less starch/carbohydrates.

recipe:

1 head of cauliflower - steamed 15-20 minutes or until soft enough to mash
40-50 grams of goat cheese depending of the size of the head of cauliflower (goat cheese works/tastes better with cruciferous vegetables IMO and is overall healthier than cow's cheese, especially if you're lactose intoerlants).
2-3 cloves of garlic to taste
sea salt to taste

Pretty simple and I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. Of course you can play with the recipe and add other ingredients like spices, parmesan cheese (which I add to taste sometimes), herbs, etc.. Sometimes I even add jalapeño juice to liven it up :).

I also use this recipe with broccoli heads.
