Yep, I said it. CHICKEN-buzz. I also call it a Chicken 'hangover', none the less, it's real. For me at least.
I am 'allergic' to chicken.
Yep, I said that too. 'Allergic'. As in... when I eat it I get a bad headache either 5 min after eating it or the next day! Weird, right? I know!
BASICALLY and simply, because of my blood type, when I eat chicken my blood reacts to a protein in chicken; and it thickens my blood causing a headache.
Do you you know your blood type?? It's actually a wonderful piece of information to obtain and learn from! I never knew my blood type until about 6 months ago and it wasn't until I started noticing certain health patterns connected to my eating that I even paid attention, really! My mom and I have the same blood type (which, if you have studied Biology at all, is not all that common!) We are both B Negative. We both get headaches from chicken, aspartame, MSG and various random things like, some cheeses. :)
If you've never checked out the book "Eat Right for Your Type" you should stop by the local bookstore and take a look! It's actually crazy how accurate it is! I don't LIVE by it, persay, but I have DEFINITELY benifited from knowing what foods react with my blood type!
