iVillage.com: Always Tired? Stomach Upset? Try This Diet to Find Your Food Sensitivities

How to Tell If You Have a Food Sensitivity

To find out if you might have a food allergy, ask yourself if any of these statements are true:

__ I have at least 10 pounds that I can’t seem to lose with normal dieting and exercise.
__ I often have a puffy face, or slightly swollen hands, feet or ankles.
__ My stomach often looks bloated.
__ I struggle with PMS/mood swings/bad skin.
__ I suffer from heartburn, indigestion, gas, diarrhea or constipation.
__ I often get headaches/colds/sinus infections.
__ My joints or muscles ache almost every day.
__ I’m sensitive to dust, dander, pollen or other airborne irritants.
__ My metabolism is so sluggish, I gain weight easily if I’m not careful about what I eat.
__ No matter how much I sleep, I am tired.
__ If I avoid my favorite foods, I get awful cravings.

If two or more of those statements were true, you might have a food sensitivity, say researchers at Connecticut’s University of Bridgeport. Test time!
