Happy Friday Everyone!
I know it's been hot and humid, but get ready for training to start :))

According to The Food Intolerance Institute of Australia's table below, food intolerances are prevalent in MOST of us Australians.
You're suffering some sort of symptoms and you're pretty sure it's a digestive problem but not sure where to start or what to blame... Know the feeling!
Well good news, there's the simple way, and the hard way to sorting you out.
You can get a food intolerance or food sensitivity blood test done. These will take a small blood sample and test you against 60 - 200+ foods, colours, preservatives etc (the more you pay, the more they'll test!
A Food Intolerance is simply when your body has a chemical reaction (as opposed to immune reactions in allergy's) and can't properly or completely process a food - resulting in sugars and proteins being only partially digested.
Some people can tolerate a reasonable amount of the food, but if they eat too much (or too often) they get symptoms because their body cannot tolerate unlimited amounts.
The onset of symptoms can be almost immediate, or may be delayed by several hours; likewise the symptoms can be very subtle (bloating, slight lethargy) to severe (stomach cramps, IBS). These inconsistency's are why food intolerances are sometimes very difficult to identify.
