I’m almost 3 years into an extended elimination diet after my whole digestive system pretty much shut down. im happy to chat more via pm, I’m just too lazy to write everything out here 🙂

I haven’t done it, but I’ve been thinking about it. to discover some triggers for a few different medical conditions.  I don’t plan on going that extreme though, although I know that it helps to make things more clear.  I would journal if I do it, as some of the things can take a fair bit of time to show up, and some medications can be an issue too.

Sporty-Bee:  Probably when I’m not enrolled in a clinical trial 🙂

I was sick for quite some time and was undiagnosed/misdiagnosed.  The diagnosis has helped, I need to reach a bit more of a normal state for myself before I start altering my diet.  Treating one condition has improved others, and the medication affects things as well, and how often I need it varies.

I’ve been gluten free for 7 years now, and recently realized that I can’t have dairy either. Apparently gluten and lactose intolerance are often present together.

Because I love to eat so much, and also because I’m mindful about my carbs intake, I would try to cut dairy first, and see how it feels before trying the bland diet where you have to try just one food at a time. I also tend to bloat with rice.

Also, you could look into the paleo diet, seems to deal with all the most frequent allergies/intolerances (except for eggs, but I find that paleo is doable without eggs if needed).

mommytobee:  Doesn’t the paleo diet include seafood and fruits that tend to cross-react with non-food allergens, ie. tree pollen, latex?

I only know the basics for the diet, not the specifics, but I’ve never heard of it being good for people with food allergies.

AB Bride:  It allows for some of these foods, but when you want to find recipes with no allergens, they are very easy to find in this diet, since all you have are fruits, veggies, nuts, meats and spices – there are no hidden ingredients since all you have is fresh foods, nothing packaged with unknowns. Also, there are many bloggers that follow… I don’t remember what it’s called, I think it’s auto-immune protocol or something like that.. many people start paleo because of allergies and starting from there you find more and more awesome reciped with no triggers in there.

i’m curious, why white rice and not brown? brown makes me less bloated than white.

mommytobee:  The lack of pre-packaged stuff makes a lot more sense, thanks!
