Carbohydrate Intolerance and the Two-Week Test

Carbohydrate Intolerance and the Two-Week Test

two week test
 
Inflammation can cause a plethora of symptoms (ie: Intestinal problems, fatigue, chronic aches and pains etc.) in various systems of the body. One of the most inflammatory food groups we eat are carbohydrates (wheat and sugar). Dr. Phil Maffetone has come up with a test to help determine your sensitivity to both of these sources. By doing an elimination test, you are able to understand food sensitivities. Once understood, you are better able to balance your diet and eat more appropriately based on your body's tolerances. Try it out for yourself!
