|Foods to Avoid During an Elimination Diet:
That basically leaves the following foods on the menu:
---- turkey, fish, rice, lamb, green vegetables and certain fruits like blueberries and apples
Note: The more strict you are the more effective the results will be.
Re-introducing foods back into your diet:
After three weeks of strict elimination a person can begin re-introducing foods back into their diet one food at a time for 1-2 days while paying attention to any reactions. For example, after three weeks of eliminating foods a person may decide to bring corn back into their diet and then observe what happens for the next 1 -2 days.
Pay attention for any of the following reactions:
If a negative reaction occurs make a note to avoid that food for a minimum of six months before trying it again. After six months you may find that your body has healed itself from the reasons it developed a sensitivity to that food, and you are no longer reactive to it.
