MDraine, I have much of the same issues as you. I do not have problems when I eat white rice (jasmine). What type of rice do you eat that gives you problems? I ask because brown rice gives me reactions.
I've tried both long grain brown rice and long grain white rice. Perhaps I'll try Jasmine, if this gives you a different reaction from regular white rice?
I haven't noticed a difference between the two rices, but then I haven't kept all other variables (such as amounts eaten at one time) constant, either!
I'm glad to hear that I don't have to eat grains at all on this diet, but it's still odd that I can't...so I'm a bit worried. Thank you, all.
