Food Intolerance Not Usually the Cause of Weight Gain

Weight Loss & Allergies - Studies

The British Nutrition Foundation has examined a number of studies into food allergies and weight. These, it says, point to fewer than 1 percent of adults having a full-blown, potentially life-threatening food allergy. Fewer than 2 percent, it says, have a milder food intolerance.

'Trendy thing'

Dr Sarah Schenker, a nutrition scientist for the foundation, said: "About 20 percent of the UK population perceive themselves to have an intolerance or allergy to food. It seems like the trendy thing to do now."

"We are very concerned that the people seem to be using food allergies and intolerance as an excuse for weight gain rather than cutting down on food and doing more exercise."

She said that many so-called allergy "experts" were charging patients large sums of money for tests with little or no scientific validity - and might even be giving potentially dangerous diet advice. If people are told to cut a lot of food out of their diet, they can lose the overall balance of the diet and that is no good."

She said that a true wheat allergy would certainly not result in weight gain - chronic diarrhoea would be more likely to be the outcome.
