Personally (and I speak SOLELY for myself, with not inferences toward anyone else), alcohol is the only trigger I have. I don't watch the msg, cheese, yeast breads, etc during a cycle, and it makes no difference. I have at times skipped all intake except water for an entire day, and still got my regular visits from the demon. I've eaten lunch at a Chinese place that states on the menu that they use msg, and nothing at all happened until my regularly schedule 730 pm dance, 7 or so hours later.
On the other hand, one drink and I'm immediately moved to the head of the demon's dance card, regardless of the time of day.
Although this still falls short of garyg's criteria for 'proof', I know that EVERY time I've ever taken a drink of alcohol during a cycle I induce an immediate attack. That's 100% ---for ME.
On the other hand, anything else I THOUGHT might be a trigger has failed to replicate the presumed effect upon subsequent trial.
