This is a question for people with food intolerances. For instance suppose you are intolerant to Food X. Is it the case that
a) you can't eat any of Food X daily without having significant symptoms
b) you can eat some of Food X daily without any symptoms but too much of Food X daily will cause significant symptoms.

I find that I need to stop food completely for at least 3 months. Currently am having a little once a week to see what happens. My dr says try very very dilute amounts every day & gradually build it up. Have to try and see what works.

I have a few intolerances to food. With regards to dairy, the only thing I can eat without a reaction is yogurt or hard cheese, most likely because of the enzymes and live cultures. I absolutely cannot do ice cream, soft cheese or any % of milk - reaction is pretty swift. I can eat some things with gluten, but I tend to pay for it later and I'd rather not. I guess I'd fall into your "a" category.

RA, AS, intolerance/sensitivity to gluten, wheat and dairy.

Back to Enbrel 5/08 (I've gone full circle!), also currently taking .7ml (17.5 mgs) injectible Methotrexate weekly, 2 mgs Folic Acid daily

It depends on the person and their level of sensitivity, and the food.
For me, it depends on the food and even how it is prepared.
I can have dairy- especially yogurt and cheese, and I can use a little half and half in my coffee, but if I have straight milk or ice cream for example, I am guaranteed to have asthma and eczema the next day. 
My son cannot tolerate even the smallest, tiniest amount of Red Dye #40 or nitrates.  He turns into a beast in 12 hours.  Really.  His behavior is awful.
