Weight Gain and Food Intolerance

Weight Gain and Food Intolerance

The relationship between Weight Gain & Food Intolerance.

If you are putting on weight, and have not yet discovered a cause then it is possible that you could be one of the estimated 9 million(1)  adults in the UK with a food intolerance.

These food sensitivities can be very difficult to pinpoint - often a trial and error elimination diet alone can take months before trigger foods are identified, as weight gain could be due to a food you have just eaten, or it could be because of a food you ate earlier in the day, or even one or two days previously.

Smartblood Story - Kathryn's Weight Issues.

Kathryn, a keen hill walker, has always had problems with her energy levels, as well as experiencing fluctuations in her weight with no discernible cause.

Recently, one of Kathryn's friends recommended that she take a Smartblood Food Intolerance Test - this test identified her IgG trigger foods which she replaced with non reactive foods with the help of a Smartblood Nutritional Therapist - now she feels better, and climbs bigger hills!

After taking the test and changing my diet, I noticed a big improvement in my energy levels and weight, as well as less pain from bloating!

A Smartblood test could help identify the causes of weight gain.

Smartblood Laboratories are Food Intolerance Specialists. We provide you with an accurate IgG reaction testing service based upon a 45 year old Laboratory method known as ELISA Plate Testing.

By testing a small sample of your blood, we will show you your IgG reactions to 134 food and drink ingredients - if you test positive to any of them then research shows that it is possible that you have a sensitivity to that food type. By eliminating that food type with the help of one of our nutritional therapists you could take control of reactions that may be responsible for weight imbalances.

In a Randomised Controlled Trial Conducted by Atkinson, Sheldon, Shaath et al, a clinically significant improvement in symptomatology was observed in patients eliminating foods to which they were found to exhibit sensitivity, as identified by an ELISA test for the presence of IgG antibodies to these foods - see more details and studies on our scientific studies page.
