  • Elimination diet--where to start?

    Recently, I had an allergy test performed for gluten and dairy sensitivities. I discovered that I'm moderately allergic to dairy. I plan on having a more comprehensive allergy test performed in several weeks, but until then, I would like to attempt to find more of my triggers.

    How does one start an elimination diet? Should I just eat everything in the OK column only for a couple of weeks and then add "try it" foods back in one at a time?

    Thanks for any advice!

    This is exactly what my doctor told me to do! And make sure to give it a few days between try-it foods, since sometimes if you are sensitive to them they don't make you flare immediately.
    Medications and Supplements:
    BladderQ
    Pyridium
    D-Mannose powder
    Cranmax

    Lifestyle:
    Lacto-ovo-vegetarian and IC diet
    Meditation
    Positive mental attitude!
