Test v reaction: The presence of a positive skin test to food only means sensitization and not necessarily causing an allergic reaction to that food.

Might whole wheat pancakes be unhealthy?

Might whole wheat pancakes be unhealthy?

Whole wheat pancakes: Pancakes themselves are just simple sugars (even "whole wheat" pancakes are not complex carbohydrates truthfully) with liquid sugar (syrup) and fat (butter) added. So pancakes are a bad nutritional choice made worse. And we can't rescue any health value by adding things like blueberries or cranberries. If you make them with psyllium husk added, you can at least get some fiber in there. ...Read more

Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming.
