How an Elimination Diet Could Change Your Life

Jul 22, 2019

Elimination diets don’t exactly sound like the most fun thing in the world, but if you’re struggling with digestive issues, they can change your life. How do you get to the root of an issue if you can never pinpoint the cause? You don’t.

That’s why millions of people live with illness unnecessarily every day. Because they never took the time to discover that perhaps their thyroid problems would improve by removing gluten from their diet. Or their IBS might get significantly better with a dairy-free diet.

It’s important to take responsibility for your own health if you want to feel good, and the elimination diet is the foundational journey you must take to decipher what works and what doesn’t.

How to do an Elimination Diet?

Certain foods trigger more negative reactions than others. The elimination diet gets rid of common food allergens for a month. Typically the foods you would avoid include:

  • Gluten
  • Grains
  • Eggs
  • Dairy
  • Sugar and sweeteners
  • Processed foods
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Citrus fruits
  • Nightshade vegetables (tomato, peppers, and eggplant)
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Soy
  • Meat with nitrites

Not all elimination diets are the same and you don’t necessarily have to remove all these foods. Once you’ve eliminated these foods for a month you start to reintroduce them into your diet one by one. By adding a new food back to your diet every 1-3 days you can get a clear idea of how that food is affecting you.

Writing about your physical and emotional reaction in a food journal will help you track what works and what doesn’t. By the end of this process, you should have a good idea of the foods that trigger or exacerbate whatever health conditions you’re dealing with.

Negative Reactions to Watch For

  • Soreness/joint pain
  • Digestive distress (Constipation, bloating, diarrhea, etc.)
  • Insomnia
  • Mood changes
  • Brain fog
  • Trouble breathing
  • Excess mucus
  • Headaches
  • Breakouts/skin problems

If you’ve been wondering what’s going on with your body, I would definitely suggest starting with an elimination diet. Before you create a route to get to your health destination, you need a map.
