Food sensitivities may not present themselves physically but still trigger the immune system and cause inflammation that slows down metabolism and can cause weight gain.

What’s the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity?

A food allergy occurs when the body misidentifies the proteins in a specific food as harmful. The immune system senses and rejects harmful elements, but sometimes the sensing goes awry. As a result, a seemingly harmless food becomes a hazard and provokes an immune response. Symptoms include inflammation of the skin as well as gastrointestinal and respiratory symptoms. Some complications can be life threatening and require immediate medical attention such as in the case of anaphylactic shock.

A food sensitivity is far more subtle than a food allergy and the symptoms are far less noticeable. However, food sensitivities are far more common. In the case of food sensitivities, the immune system produces antibodies against components of a specific food and the interaction that follows can generate inflammation, slowing metabolism and increasing food cravings and hunger.
