It's not fair I tell you. Terri goes on a diet and discovers that she isn't lactose intolerant, I on the other hand have discovered that I'm intolerant to beer, corn, lactose and my oatmeal issues are a whole lot worst than I realized. And don't even get me started on my wheat observations. OY!
I will say that before I started doing all this I had constant stomach issues, I had heartburn morning, noon and night. On top of that every night I would lay in bed and belch and belch and belch and the problems were getting worse all the time. I was starting to think I had some sort of progressive stomach disease. Anyway one of the best things about watching my calories pretty close is that now I know for a fact once I'm up over 2,500-2,800 any given day I get the belching issue again, especially if I've eaten a lot of those calories after lunch. Funny when it was every day I thought I was growing a tumor, but now I know it's just plain old fashioned indigestion from over eating.
Not to hi-jack the thread, I thought the article was very interesting. I do wonder how honest or accurate the data was, since it sounds like the participants only answered questions a few times/year. It might prove really informative if you took logs from fitday users over the same length of time. Anybody have ties to Harvard?
