    After going to the health shop and being told to cut down on yeast and a few other things.
    £50 for an allergy yes and it tells you exactly what you are lacking and what you are allergic to,she wants me to go but iff I’m honest I would rather not know,I know I can’t eat some things (all the good things) so the £50 will go towards a reverb.
    Anyone been for an allergi test,is it worth it???

    I’m on the Wetherpooms diet mid week for at least 3 days and 2 nights a week

    Fruit in the day, keep hydrated
    1 bottle of Moretti 660ml befor the evening meal
    1 double chicken breast burger with lashings of tommy K
    Eat about half the chips with plenty of salt and vinegar
    1 pint of Tubourg
    Sometimes 1 more Moretti. Sometimes not.

    Lost 10KG in the last 10 weeks on average.

    Oh, I also walk about 7 miles a day with work..and also half heatedly do one insanity workout in the hotel room. Cost coffee for breaks sometimes with a protein shake but more often than not I don’t bother.

    Weekends are filled with curry and too much beer usually

    I’ve found a diet I like, can stick to and loose weight with.

    Stick your fad diet. Choose one you can stick to. I am the lightest I’ve ever been.

    Unless by “health shop” you actually mean “licensed doctor” I would take the results of any “test” they do with a very large dose of low sodium salt alternative.

    My wife went on a similar diet a number of years ago on the advice of a quack and lost a lot of weight very quickly, which was bad as she had none to lose. Caveat emptor.

    I just Googled the diet. On the first page of hits, the vast majority of hits are variations on “why the candida diet is a load of pish.”

    I’d suggest she stops listening to salesmen in health food shops, and starts eating some food. If you do want to take an allergy test, go to a doctor rather than some pseudo-scientific quack who will take your money to tell you that you’re allergic to everything they don’t sell (though if you were allergic to food you’d probably have noticed by now, anaphylactic shock is fun for all the family).

    That’ll be £50, thanks.

    Currently on the generic south east asian work trip belly diet, so far dropped 3kg in a week. The down side is I might need to move a desk into the crapper so I can carry on working and get some softer bog roll.

    Allergy testing by patch test by a dermatologist I’ll listen to. Holding food stuffs in your have while a low current is passed through your arm is snake oil in my opinion.

    Oops! I read that as Canada diet, there was me thinking that Mrs Ricky would be feasting on pancakes bacon and maple syrup, lucky lass.

    The insanity workout is incredible; it’s found a way, by exercising really, really hard in both a cardio and weight resistance sense, for only 45 minutes a day, for only two months, to get you to acheive a noticeable difference in your fitness, weight and musculature.

    It’s mind-blowing stuff.

    How do you do an insanity workout half-heartedly?

    Is that like a “mentally-unsound workout” or an “alright-as-long-as-he-remembers-to-take-his-pills workout”?

    £50 for an allergy yes and it tells you exactly what you are lacking and what you are allergic to

    I’d only buy this if I could do it over the phone….

    Is that insanity workout a spoof? It is just on the edge of being plausible marketing.

    Unless she has a had a proper allergy test vis a Dr, then she has not had a allergy test.

    There a loads of health food, alternative medics etc that spread rubbish stories just to sell stuff …..

    Doc here.
    This is BS.
    But your money and god made sheep to be shorn… 😉

    I am not a doctor.

    the premise of the Candida diet is not that one has a food allergy, but that a crappy diet + course of antibiotics has led to an unusual and unwanted balance of bacteria / fungi (yeast, basically) in your gut – and that this can affect the way you feel.

    summary of the diet: lay off the refined carbs to starve out the yeast. if you’re being extra harsh on yourself you can try avoiding too much fruit.

    it’s not a weight loss diet, it’s a ‘so you want to stop feeling crap all the time?’ diet.

    it might well all just be rubbish, but it’s a simple concept and course of action. No buying of stuff required.

    in practice it means lots of veg and beans – isn’t that similar to the idave diet?

    beans on toast for breakfast, in.

    sugar-coated chocolate-pops, and half a litre of oj, out.

    Pretty sure there was an expose on TV a while back about these health shop ‘allergy tests’ in which the presenter went to a few shops and ended up with an allergy blacklist comprising nearly every food known to man. Total quackery.

    Love the way you’re all dismissing the allergy test without even knowing how it was conducted. 🙂

    This isn’t BS….it’s a very real problem for a lot of people.

    How do i know? The Mrs is a scientist specialising in this area. Expect to see a lot more people with this kind of problem along with auto immune diseases…. You have the absurd amount of antibiotics we are given to blame along with poor food choices to blame etc.

    Ricky1, support your other half, i believe in extreme cases it can be quite debilitating, in the more common cases its like that ‘brain fog’ and tiredness you get after a massive sandwich!

    See how she gets on.

    Completely agree with Bueller. I’ve just got over my 4th bout of uveitis in 10 yrs, all the docs agree that it must be some kind of auto-immune problem. Can they be bothered to help me try & figure out what? Of course not.

    Frankly there is world of difference between an allergy test done by medical trained personel and someone in health food shop which was the case in the OP.

    Also in their ability to deal with a case of anaphylaxis should the person being tested prove to be particularly allergic to whatever’s being waved at them.

    Both sweeping generalisations.

    possibly john but a search for ‘high street allergy testing’ seems to indicate a widespread lack of confidence in it’s ability to diagnose true intolerance/allergy?

    Exactly my point Luke. Internet search throws up facts shocker.
