1) Wheat

The first food on the list is Wheat. This is important because you have an intolerance to wheat and are experiencing certain symptoms, then you need to know that Wheat is in everything and it can be difficult to avoid. You must work to avoid wheat, and by work, we mean analysing all the ingredients to guarantee that there is no wheat snuck into the meals.

The symptoms of food intolerance vary, as an intolerance can occur in all different shapes and sizes. A wheat intolerance can also worsen the symptoms of IBS. Remember, even though wheat, as one of the 8 most common allergies in the world should always be listed on the ingredients, you still have to be careful to make sure it is not on there. Also, if you are maintaining a food diary, the symptoms of a wheat intolerance may not occur (or be noticeable) up until 72 hours later!

2) Eggs

Everyone loves adding eggs to their diet as they are a great source of protein and vitamins, and are a key contributor to a balanced and healthy diet. Well, were you also aware that eggs are often a hidden ingredient, and cause symptoms of food intolerance which are varied in severity. An egg intolerance is similar to other food intolerances, and cannot always be identifiable unless you have taken an intolerance test. On the plus side, if you have an intolerance to eggs, there are plenty of alternatives. In order to get your protein fix, you can add beans, nuts and seeds, or much fish-based protein if you do not have an intolerance to these foods. You could try swapping your egg for avocado.

3) Nuts

This means you should be careful to ensure that you do not add nuts to any meals, and that you examine the ingredients very carefully. Like all food intolerances, symptoms of food intolerance to nuts can vary in severity and present themselves in many different ways.
