The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    What do multivitamins, protein powder and fish oil have to do with your allergies? Or an itchy throat and runny nose? That could mean a number of things. Maybe you're getting sick.

    Food allergies.
    From where? Hard to tell, most of our food has "changed" over the years.
    Oh well, that's what we get for turning food into a giant science experiment.
    Pretty soon we'll all have them.

    Food items which were used in the process of making protein powder, vitamins, fish oil, at some point came into contact with chemicals, processing, modifications etc. Food allergies can come from ANYTHING you eat, not just your supplements. I have posted something on this in the "coffee" thread. Very common now. It's amazing, so little people know that "natural" doesn't exsist in the Western World.

    I would suggest talking to you Dr about some Allegra or Allegra-D. I take Allegra-D and have no problems now.

    About the multivitamins, I was thinking that those extra vitamins and minerals would help keep you from being sick, or at least prevent runny noses and the likes (vitamin C does help). My throat is still itchy.

    I seriously doubt this is a food allergy. It's not presenting itself as such. Hayfever or allergies as you describe them don't have to occur at any specific time. As Getfit pointed out, allergies are common. Get some Allegra or Clarithin-D. There's also the destinct possibility that you actually are comming down with a cold.

    Yes.
    It doesn't have to be a food itself, but an additive or chemical in or on the food.
    It all depends on your bodies response.

    Funny, after I started taking this new protein I just bought lol I started getting an itchy throat and runny nose must be a coincedence. Anyways you'd think whey protein or any type of protein supplements would better your immune system, so I thought you would become more healthy and less prone to these type of things. Guess I was wrong, heh.

    itchy throat? maybe. Runny nose? Highly unlikely. Allergies are usually limited to the route of exposure. The body usually responds by causing an inflammatory response at the area where the allergen is itnroduced...ie...pollen inflames your mucosal membrane, poison ivy causes a skin rash. In the case of food allergies the response is more systemic. You can get a swollen throat, fever, general swelling as the allergen spreads through your system, and yes, a rash. It, however rarely, if ever, presents itself as hayfever.
