Losing weight and getting the body of your dreams feels like a never-ending journey filled with salads and lung-busting runs. Not particularly pleasant at times and, when you don’t see your desired results, incredibly frustrating. When you always take the “healthy option” at restaurants, say no to that food you’re craving and living a life of abstinence, to still be living with a body you’re not satisfied with can be disheartening.
For many people, this is enough to throw in the towel and resign yourself to a life of being generally dissatisfied with how you look. You don’t want that and Allergy Test Australia don’t want that for you. That’s why we’re here to tell you that food intolerance testing is the gamechanger you’ve been looking for.
Bloating and digestion
An incredibly common side effect of food intolerance is bloating and digestive distress. When you eat a food to which you’re intolerant, it causes inflammation within cells which can make eating the last thing on your mind. This sounds ideal when you’re trying to lose weight, but if you’re not eating enough food, your body will store the food you *do* eat as body fat as a survival method. That’s right. Not eating enough can make you fat. The foods you eat can also be a problem in that you don’t have the enzymes necessary to break down the food. In their place, bacteria break down the food. When they do this, they produce excess gas which remains in the digestive system. It sits in the stomach until it is expelled, leading to bloating. This makes your hard work look like its having no effect.
Food intolerances can have a surprisingly significant negative impact on your ability to perform physical activity. Food intolerance testing can help you identify the foods that are causing you to experience excessive levels of fatigue. Inflammation caused by food intolerance restricts airways during sleep leading to a reduction in the levels of oxygen available to the brain for restorative processes. They can also limit airways during exercise, making breathing more difficult and laboured. This makes the experience of exercise even more difficult, which can lead to you giving up on it altogether.
