    People wonder why they gain weight eating the same things they always have. When I realized I had gluten/dairy allergies 10 years ago I had to read every label on food and that's when I realized that first the government subsidizes these two industries then adds wheat and dairy to everything to get rid of it. A can of orange soda? Wheat added, in the form of "modified food starch". Tomato soup? Wheat added. Casein in everything.

    The only way I can get by is to avoid all meat and anything processed. I shop from the outside rows at the grocery store and live on fruit, veggies and some rice pasta.

    It really pisses me off that doctors never ask you about your diet....unless it's to punish you. How about a little constructive honesty from the medical profession?
