Weight Loss – Should You Do The Elimination Diet Plan?
The elimination diet is one gaining in popularity as more and more people jump on the bandwagon and lose weight because of it. Is it one you should be doing?
Do you have an interest in this diet but are not quite sure if it is for you? Let us look at this concept further to determine if this is a diet you should be investing your time in.
If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you have tried an elimination diet (or have considered going on one) and you’re questioning if they really work.
Who Should Try an Elimination Diet?
If you suspect you have food sensitivities or other adverse reactions to foods (which often manifest as digestive issues, skin disorders, joint pain, autoimmune problems, trouble losing weight, fatigue, infertility, and more), an elimination diet is a key part of the healing process.
Elimination diets remain the gold standard in confirming food sensitivities (even when lab testing has been done) and figuring out your unique “dose tolerance” to individual foods. By removing problematic foods, at least for a period of time, and then reintroducing certain foods, you can identify your reactive (or trigger) foods and which foods your body can handle
If you do decide to try an elimination diet, planning is key. “Plan a shopping list so that your kitchen is stocked with alternatives, ” says Batayneh. That will help ensure that you get all of the nutrients your body needs—but none of the items that are on your list of now-forbidden foods. After all, even the tiniest little slip up can skew your results.
