I decided to try the Paleo diet due to a wheat and corn allergy I've ignored for years. After only three days on Paleo, my stomach and digestive issues/pain were 100% GONE.
Unfortunately, I've been really sick lately (flu, then Strep, then bronchitis...it has been an awful winter for my immune system) and was in bed for about three days straight. I hadn't done a good job of stocking up veggies, meat, fruit, etc. prior to that. So, I still had 'bad stuff' in my cupboards and felt I should eat something. I made some rice and was up all night with horrible stomach cramps. That surprised me, as I always considered rice a 'kind tummy' food.
Since then, I haven't been what you'd call strict with what I eat. I am getting back on track, though. Lack of energy, time and many other factors have led me to a few less-than-favorable meal choices.
Here is my question in a nutshell: what is your opinion on wheat and corn - if someone was going to eat one or the other, which do you feel is less harsh on your gut and body in general?
