Totinos Pizza Rolls. I will always burn my mouth eating them, but they are too delicious to resist.

Anything with wheat. I miss it so much. Then I eat it and regret it so much more.

Wing Stop Louisiana Boneless Wings. They are so damn tasty that I just can't pass them up. But, my body rejects them like no other. But, I still push onward. I hunker down, grab a bit of bleu cheese and just dive in. Oh the sweet agony!

@thumperchick: Food allergies suck. After 34 good years of eating shrimp, crab, lobster and other tasty sea critters, I developed a shellfish allergy. Now the foods I love so much can kill me. Life is cruel.

all of a sudden lactose is a problem~but can not give up pizza.

The Thai Spicy Red Curry at my new favorite Thai restaurant. Not while I'm eating it but later, when it feels like molten lead moving through my lower intestinal tract.

I have a gluten intolerance and cannot handle too much lactose either. Then, on top of all of this, I'm a vegetarian too.

My favorite food is Italian like pizza, pasta, etc. Those are forbidden unless I get gluten-free versions which are too expensive for my budget.

@gigi889: Lactose issues? Not exactly mozzarella, but might do in a pinch. Making home made pizza is ridiculously easy. While I can't vouch for the taste, these lactose free cheeses might be the answer: http://www.wischeese.com/cultured-way-yogurt-cheese/

@cengland0: hey! we have the same misery! Vegetarian by choice, gluten-free & dairy-free by the insistence of my GI tract. Started a couple yrs ago.

I've tried the faux-cheese stuff and I find it horrid. When I want pizza, I want a real oven fired, crispy crust pizza margherita w/fresh mozzarella, tomato & basil. Good god do I miss real pizza. And Mac & cheese.

For those of you who are lactose intolerant and love cheese, it may be comforting to know that any hard cheese (parm, cheddar) aged over 15 months contains NO lactose. The aging process has virtually eliminated the lactose. 100-day aged Swiss will also work as well. Be careful of the Kraft cheeses that state "0g of lactose" on the back of the package. Technically they may be right, but there's still lactose there.
If you still have discomfort after eating hard, aged cheeses you may have a dairy allergy.

@bbdickso1: You're right about the lactose in cheese. The harder the cheese, the less lactose is in it. The bacteria or enzymes that they put in the milk eat the lactose for food.

I can eat a little cheese or ice cream without any stomach distress but cannot tolerate a glass of milk. I also put sour cream on my baked potatoes and do not experience any discomfort either. I suppose I'm not as sensitive as others in the lactose area.

Now gluten on the other hand, I'm extremely allergic. I switched brands of toothpaste once and had reactions. There were no gluten ingredients but it was the only thing I changed so I called the manufacturer and they confirmed it contains trace amounts of gluten. So, the toothpaste contains a "trace" amount and I'm not swallowing it but I still have a reaction.

I have a separate toaster for my gluten-free waffles and company has to use the other one if they want toast of waffles of their own.

Sadly, as I age, I can eat less and less that I enjoy. I love a good steak, but can't digest beef properly. I like chicken, but it makes me ill. I can't do lactose very well at all. My body doesn't properly digest vegetables because of a stomach issue, so they can make me ill. I can't do sugar.

I'm pretty much on a bread and Scotch diet unless I want to be ill.

jalapenos... After about 15 minutes, my stomach gives my backside a little preview of what's going to happen in about 6 hours.

Movie theater popcorn is something I love and adore. Until shortly after the movie is over and it feels as if I'm trying to digest rocks.

If I eat anything with sugar or lots of starch (bread, basically) I end up with a serious burn in the stomach. I used to take Omeprazole daily until I changed my diet.

Here in the midwest, we have Casey's Carryout Pizza (gas station and food in one). They have a wonderful Taco Pizza that's loaded with refried beans. My stomach is in pain for hours whenever I eat much refried beans (lots of stomach gas).

No way I'm going to stop eating that. Oh, and it's on sale this month!

Currently, shell fish. I developed an allergy a little over 2 years ago. Every now and again I will take extra allergy meds and go to town on shrimp and lobster.

Some day I will die consuming shrimp because of a Zyrtec OD.

@eneref: Have you been tested for soy allergies? I read somewhere that someone got sick when eating beef until they found out they had a soy allergy and because the cows ate some soy it came through the beef making them sick. They switched to grassfed beef and they have no problem with it anymore. I would guess there could be soy product given to chicken too. Just a thought I thought I would share, I have no idea if that is scientifically plausible even.
