Over the past two years I have gained 20 kilos... I couldn't figure out why as I hadn't changed my eating patterns at all, and I eat reasonably healthy anyway.
I started getting excruciating pains in my stomach, and always the feeling of bloatedness.
After lots of trips to the doctors and many disappointed looks at the scale I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. And it looks like it was being caused from food allergies.
I now know that I cannot eat seafoods or anything that contains salicylates.
Only problem is that I only know the basic things that contain salicylates eg; potato and anything made from tomatoes.
I know there are alot of fruits and veggies containing it but I have no idea what ones and how I can find out!
Now I know why I've put on the weight I want to get it back off and keep it off.
Does anyone know of a site or of anyway I could find out more about salicylates? It'd be really appreciated... Thanks.
