Sensitive to caffeine.

Mildly allergic or somewhat sensitive to:  millet, cinnamon, olive oil, almonds, tomato, green peppers, walnuts, MSG, oats, red palm oil. Also sensitive to most fruits EXCEPT bananas, lemon, and applesauce without additives. Some of the fruit reaction may be due to yeast allergy; yeast grows on grapes, for instance. Have recurring reflux that is aggravated by spices, grease, coffee, egg whites, and too much fiber.

Supposed to avoid high glycemic foods like sweets, white potatoes, and white rice (but this is not always practical). Recommended starches include sweet potatoes and jasmine rice. Need to limit high sulfur foods to small servings and avoid high histamine foods.
