and has the 1-2 gluten free shakes lessened that any?
I am diagnosed as dairy intolerant, so have wiped out my symptoms by going dairy free, however I still get flare ups of eczema and bloating, and have wondered if going gluten free might help with those. I haven’t tested it yet.
With the dairy intolerance I cut it out completely and the symptoms were alleviated straight away. Maybe that’s the case with gluten also.
According to the GP, dairy is the first culprit, always try eliminating that first, then wheat, but you have to cut them one by one to know which it is. Luckily for me, dairy was the trigger so it was quite a quick realisation. I kept delving into dairy still, experimenting with how much I could take before my body rebelled, and so I could take a certain amount and I did that. When I crossed the line I knew about it.
When I went vegan and eliminated it, I was in a much better situation. I wish I had cut it totally before. It just wasn’t worth it.
My symptoms were IBS symptoms though, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, bloating, fatigue, eczema and migraines.
If you have a problem with dairy, from personal experience, I’d say you’d know pretty quickly if it was the cause as you will feel a lot better, or normal even. I suspect other intolerances would be a similar case once you trial elimination. And when I say elimination, I mean in everything. You’d be surprised how much of these things are in every day unsuspecting foods.
If you think you have an intolerance @5kg2go it’s best to work with your GP on this. If you eat bread and rice (particularly the wholemeal varieties) you are going to be getting a less b vitamins in your diet if you cut them out.
Yes Huel will provide the B vitamins you may miss out on from bread and rice because of the oats and flaxseed.
But it’s a question which doesn’t really have a right answer because it’s not the nutrition of them that will matter. What will matter is what dish you’re using them in and what you want to eat. If I’m making a stir fry I’d rather use rice than Huel and I’d rather spread jam on my toast than jam on Huel (however that might work)!
