Some people can eat what they want without worry -- but for many others, certain foods can trigger reactions. Some of those reactions could be mild to the point where you might not associate them with what your're eating, while others are more sever and could require medical attention.


What foods tend to be the root of common sensitivities? Take a look below and think about what you eat. If you've had any symptoms like diarrhea, rashes, headaches, bloating, fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, acid reflux, a runny nose, skin flushing or acne after eating something, you might abe sensitive to one of these foods or ingredients. The best way to find out is by doing an elimination diet to see what's Causing it and getting with your doctor to help you sort it out.


1. Dairy

One common diary sensitivity is know as lactose intolerance. It happens when you have a shortage of lactase enzymes that prevent you form digesting milk and dairy products. Luckily it's very simple to find dairy alternatives these days, so ditching dairy from your diet isn't very difficult.


2. Gluten

So many people are going gluten-free these days though the most important group that must are those with Celiac disease. Gluten is what the proteins in wheat, rye, triticale, and barley are called. Those with a wheat allergy and non-celiac gluten sensitivity should avoid items with gluten. Again, it's so easy to find gluten-free items that you shouldn't have a problem going gluten-free without missing out on much.
