What is an exercise-induced food allergy?

ANSWER

People who experience this reaction eat a specific food before exercising. As they exercise and their body temperature goes up, they begin to itch, get light-headed, and soon have allergic reactions such as hives or even anaphylaxis. The cure for exercised-induced food allergy is simple -- avoiding the suspected food for a couple of hours before exercising.
