I need to turn Vegan?

I just found out I can no longer eat all of the food that I love. We took a Food Intolerance Test and the results were far from what I was hoping. I guess this means trying my best to live a vegan, gluten free life?

  1. Why not try complex foods like un processed foods. Just control the portion of your food depending on your bmr 😊 bmr means your ratio of calories. Or calorie intake 😊 In every meal at least have 1 cup of vegetables, with protein meal. Protein like fish, beef, chicken fish but cook it nicely. better steam/grill it than fried. This way it will be much healthier. But lets face reality, in a day to day basis sometimes you get out, eat out. You don’t have to deprive yourself 😊 if you can’t go an a plan just take small portions like a half or 1 slice of cake will do, a small bag of chips will do.

    Example of simple and complex foods

    banana (yellow or lakatan) vs (saba)
    saba is better as it makes you feel busog 😊
    basta as much as possible avoid anything processed and choose complex foods, like saba, egg, vegetables, stevia sugar, wheat, etc. 😊

    Though eating vegetables is okay too, as some of it has good calories and protein. But do not deprive. take it easy on your self 😊. Good Morning and have a great day! 😊

  2. I’ve read that food intolerance testing is unreliable, giving both false positive and false negative results. The high levels of IgG don’t always indicate a problem; they simply point to foods a person recently has eaten.
    Here’s a good read on it

    I’m also a pescatarian (love my salmon and sea bass) but slowly trying to go on a plant-based diet (my brother is vegan) because I do believe that we don’t need meat to be healthy. The key is to not stress about eliminating those potentially “intolerant” foods completely. Just enjoy them in moderation. Good luck in maintaining a healthy diet. ❤️

  3. Try joining Manila Vegans facebook group! they have lots of recipes there and where to buy gluten free vegan options. Some of them are even suppliers of vegan food and owners of restaurants.

  4. I’m a vegan and I get recipes and meal preps on youtube mainly from Jon Venus, Avante garde vegan, life al dente (thevegancorner.com), and the cheap lazy vegan. I recommend doing meal preps that will last up to 4-5 days, it’s less stressful/hassle and at least you’re always full 🙂

  5. Hmm dont worry so much about it. Ive read somewhere that Food Intolerance tests are unreliable. They say that the IGg antibodies in your body dont necessarily mean you are sensitive to the foods in your “list” of Elevated Foods but could mean that you eat them regularly. I think the best way to prove this is to have another test after yiu stayed away from these foods and see if you get different results. Not an expert here. This could be just meh haha heres the article i read:: https://www.google.com.ph/amp/s/tonic.vice.com/amp/en_us/article/43778n/food-intolerance-tests-are-shoddy-science-and-traps-for-disordered-eating
