I'm having a hard time finding foods to eat. Any suggestions?
Meal planning apps can be a great way to fill in the gaps. I like the app EATTHISMUCH. CLICK HERE to check it out. I'm not affiliated with it in any way - just find it's super simple and easy to use without breaking the bank if you decide to go with the paid version.
What I like about it: When you're setting up your profile, it allows you to pick what foods you don't want to include in your meal plan. While they don't have all the foods, it's a great start. Simply choose not to include your red foods.
There is a free version and a paid version. The free version allows you to plan a day's worth of meals. The paid version allows you to plan a week's worth of meals at a time and sends you a printed grocery list.

I'm supplementing with vitamins, but the same vitamins I take came up as a deficiency. What does that mean?
If you're currently supplementing with a particular vitamin or nutrient, and that same item registered on your report, it can indicate the source of the supplement isn't being absorbed by the body.
There are typically 2 reasons for this (you may have 1 or both):
1. Your digestion is off, and the sizzle that breaks your food apart and makes it absorbable is more like a sizzle. To learn more about how digestion is supposed to work and break your food apart into usable nutrients, CLICK HERE.
2. Your vitamin is likely made in a lab and your body doesn't know how to absorb and utilize chemicals the same way it does real food. A whole food vitamin, which your body knows what to do with, is likely a better option. Consider switching from a synthetic brand to a whole-food based brand such as Garden of Life or Ancient Nutrition.
Is this a test for allergies?
No, 5 Strands testing DOES NOT test for allergies. Allergies are a different type of immune system response than environmental and food intolerances (also known as sensitivities). We test for intolerances, not allergies.
What is the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity?
It's easiest to explain this way: Let's talk about a virus vs. a bacteria. When you're sick and you go to the doctor they will often test to see if your illness is caused by a virus or a bacteria. Both a virus and a bacteria effect the immune system. However, a virus requires one course of treatment, bacteria requires a different course of treatment.
Think of allergies and sensitivities (intolerances) as things that both effect your immune system (just like a virus and a bacteria both effect your immune system), however, there are 2 different routes you take (just like there are 2 different routes you take whether it's a virus or bacteria).
Allergies can be life - threatening immune response and must be dealt with by medical professionals.
Intolerances (sensitivities) aren't life threatening immune responses, however they have the ability to make you feel pretty miserable.
I still need a little more help. Is there a way to talk to someone at 4:14 Fitness about my questions?
Absolutely! While the course is designed to help you with the basics, we understand you may have further questions or may need a little extra guidance along your journey. You're welcome to set up a time to speak with a 4:14 Coach by CLICKING HERE. There is an additional cost to speak with a coach, as the investment you've already made was for the testing and the course itself.
Are there other resources I can check out about food sensitivities?
