The Elimination Diet Made Simple


Do you think you maybe have a food allergy but aren’t sure?

Maybe you are experiencing fatigue, skin flare-ups, mood swings, asthma, arthritis, or nutrient deficiencies, but you are reluctant to medicate.

An elimination diet is a short-term eating plan that is a great starting point for pinpointing what food, if any, may be causing your symptoms.

Most elimination diets cut out all common allergens, including:

-gluten

-dairy

-soy

-refined/added sugar

-peanuts

-corn

-alcohol

-eggs, in some cases

-packaged, processed or fast foods

So how do you go about starting an elimination diet?

Follow these steps:

-Stop eating all of the common allergens from the food list for at least three weeks.

-Be sure to read food labels carefully to make sure you’re really avoiding even trace amounts of these foods.

-Keep a food journal during this time to record how you’re feeling on a daily basis.

-At the three week mark, start to reintroduce one food group at a time. Eat the food daily for 1–2 weeks and record your symptoms, taking note of any changes in symptoms between the elimination and reintroduction phases.

-If symptoms return, you can confirm that this food is a trigger by eliminating it once again.

-The goal is to see if the symptoms clear up when the food is removed a second time.

This process can be somewhat lengthy, but it is a good way to pinpoint and remove foods that cause negative symptoms.
