Whole wheat flour: Hi. Refined flour (white) flour is junk and should not be consumed. The whiter the bread, the sooner you're dead. Foods closer to nature are better. Whole grain flours are much more nutritious and also a good source of dietary fiber. So flour is not the bad guy...refined flour is the bad guy. Stick with whole grain, and less processed foods in general. Same for rice: brown, not white. Good luck!

Constipation: First make sure that your daughter resricts the amount of diary products she eats and drinks. Second introduce more fiber in her diet in the form of fruits and vegetables. Third, give her high fiber cereals to eat that may contain dried fruit like, raisins, prunes, or apricots. Next make an appointment with your doctor who can make sure you don't have a major problem. He can give you medication.

Bake it instead: Grilled or baked fish is way less fattening than fried fish. The frying itself more than triples the calories, and they are the worst kind of calories, oxidized fat. It will not be a good food to eat if you are concerned about body composition.

Can eating raw flour stop me from conceiving?

I don't think so: I'm not aware that eating raw flour would decrease one's fertility. If you are having difficulty conceiving, best to seek an evaluation of your fertility with an ob/gyn or infertility specialist. If I may ask, why or how are you eating raw flour?

PICA: It sounds like you have developed PICA - the urge to eat something not generally considered food. I am not aware of specific dangers of eating raw flour. It is important to let your doctor know that you are eating this though and PICA can be discussed in more detail. Try to find a similar food that healthier but still relieve the urge -- cereal, granola are ideas to try.

Can eating wheat or glutin cause an itchy reaction? I have an chronic ear itch that seems to go away when I cut out flour from my diet. Coincidence?

Can eating wheat or glutin cause an itchy reaction? I have an chronic ear itch that seems to go away when I cut out flour from my diet. Coincidence?

Wheat can cause itch: Gluten is a molecule found in wheat, barley, and rye. It is what gives bread it's chewy texture. Patients with celiac disease have immune reactions to gluten. Itchiness could be one symptom but not very common. Your pcp can draw a blood test to screen for celiac disease. A true wheat allergy, on the other hand can cause itchiness. This is best diagnosed by an allergist with skin testing.
