I recently found out that MSG in foods may be causing my long-time migraines/dizziness. Apparently it is in just about everything we eat and in people who are sensitive to it, it can cause a whole mess of problems. (If anyone would like more information, a great site/book info is here: www.msgmyth.com) I am hopeful that cutting out MSG will work for me, as I have always have a tendency to eat a lot of processed foods and such, and have nearly always suffered from spells of extreme dizziness, and now migraines. My doctor just keeps pushing more medicine on me, but if this is something I can control with diet alone, then of course I would love to. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone else on here has decided to stop eating food with MSG, or at least cut back, and if they can recommend any non-MSG food brands or restaurant items? Recipes would also be great.

I hope your book also made you aware that MSG occurs naturally in many foods.  It isn't just an additive.

Good luck, sounds like a lot of tough sleuthing.  Also sounds like a good opportunity to stop eating processed foods (which often have MSG).

Yes, I know it is found in tomatoes, cheese, mushrooms in high amounts naturally, and in some foods it is released upon soaking, like corn, just to name a few. That makes it hard, but right now I am just trying to eliminate it in all processed food and eat mostly fresh veggies/fruit and safe meats and see how much that helps. After a while, I should be able to tell more immediately and accurately what food/foods caused my reaction if I get one and then try to eliminate those natural ones that bother me as well. It is difficult since there is very little information about exactly how much MSG is in any certain food, natural or not.

I agree though, it is a good opportunity to stop eating processed foods. I have always said that we should eat healthier but this gave me the jumpstart I needed and a reason to keep it up.
