Elimination Diet: What It Is & How It Can Change Your Life Forever
If you suspect that you have some sort of food sensitivity or allergy that is giving your body negative symptoms (such as skin breakouts) or bringing down your overall well-being, you should, try going on an elimination diet.
As the name suggests, an elimination diet is a process by which you eliminate specific foods over a three to four week period of time, and then slowly reintroduce specific foods, one category of food at time, back into your diet to monitor your symptoms for possible reactions.
In addition to eliminating foods that you really shouldn't been eating anyway, such as junk food and other processed foods, for three to four weeks you are eliminating the following from your diet: gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, pork, beef, chicken, beans, lentils, coffee, and nightshade vegetables.
Once you have reintroduced all the foods into your diet while tracking your overall physical and mental well-being in a food journal, you should have a clearer idea of how certain foods affect your body and what foods you should eliminate from your diet.
