I know some of you are curious about elimination diets and some of you may be slightly interested in trying one, but think it may be too much work. Well, what would you say if I told you I’m going to start a new one, much more structured, and I’m looking for a few buddies to journey down this foreign road with?
Can I tempt you with joining me on my next food elimination diet?
Before you say no…..I’m thinking April will be a good time to start, so you have time to mentally prepare. The days will be warming up and the two day smoothie detox will be easier to face when there isn’t snow on the ground. Yes, there is a two day liquid diet to jump start this diet. I know, it scared me too, but this is why I’m looking for buddies. We can motivate each other and keep one another on track. We can review the recipes during each phase of the diet and give tips on which ones are best. We can make it fun!
Why consider an elimination diet? To just feel better overall. To feel healthier. And if you have any of the following conditions:
- Acid Reflux
- Chronic Headaches
- Chronic Fatigue
- Add /ADHD
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Irritable Bowel Disease
Of course, please don’t enter into this sort of diet without consulting your physician first. And I’m not recommending this diet for children, although some of the meals in the diet would be ok and very good for them, just not this full elimination diet primarily because of the early liquid only phase. Gulp!
Have I peaked your interest? Still not sure? Here is the diet I’ll be following from Whole Life . I am just so in love with their blog and their healthy recipes. If you follow my blog, you already know this. Their recipes make frequent appearances here.
And, to make things even more interesting, there may just be some involvement from the folks over at Whole Life Nutrition. Maybe there will be a giveaway? Say a free cookbook? That’s all I’ll say for now. More to come soon!
