> hi. i think all of those things you mentioned could be contributing to your symptoms. looks like lots of variables.

***********************************************
FYI,
A year ago I started looking for a diet that I could follow to lose weight and not interfere with my diet, and food combining works well. For a good reference - take a look at Suzanne Somers books - she makes it easy and simple. She takes the simple carbs out of the diet and uses rules to define what foods can be eaten together. Though I am happy with my weight now, I still follow these guidelines not to gain weight back; eating in combos really helps if you have any digestive problems as well.
