Elimination diets are designed to help you figure out whether an element of your normal eating plan is causing your body to react in unfavourable ways…

Common food types to eliminate from your diet are dairy, wheat, gluten, and alcohol. Eliminating a food that doesn’t agree with you can help you feel ten years younger.

When I eliminated wheat from my diet, I felt a massive change within days. I had way more energy, and felt far less bloated. I also dropped stubborn weight from my stomach that I had struggled with for years.

If the diet works for you, you’ll usually start to feel better after a few days to a week. But you have to do it strictly.

What foods should be excluded on an elimination diet?

Most elimination diets start by excluding the most common allergens from your diet. Some diets require you to abstain from ALL of these. However, if you have an idea of what you’re allergic to, you can just start by eliminating that food from your diet
