5/5 - (1 vote)

Each person’s body and condition are different. They all have a separate diet due to food suitability for the body. So if you’ve learned about “food allergies” and “food intolerances,” then you know how important it is to find the right foods for each person’s needs. To determine which food intolerance or allergy you have, in addition to laboratory tests, you can try an elimination diet meal plan (PDF). We will learn about it and do it most scientifically and accurately.

What Is an Elimination Diet?

elimination diet plan pdf
Elimination diet plan eliminates one or a group of foods that contain intolerant ingredients

An elimination diet, which eliminates one or a group of foods that contain intolerant food ingredients, helps us discover and determine which foods we have allergies and intolerances to. Since this diet eliminates one or a group of foods, you’ll need support from a trainer or nutritionist.

Along with learning what foods can cause irritation and allergies to the body, we also need to strengthen the health of the intestinal lining because many intolerances can occur due to leaky sugar syndrome, leaky gut or poor digestion of food, leading to reduced efficiency of the digestive system.

How to start an elimination diet plan?

Step 1: Identify foods that your body may be sensitive to. Identify a food group that you think may be related to intolerance symptoms. You can start with the list of allergenic and poorly tolerated foods suggested above or build on your body’s previous experiences.

Step 2: Remove

Eliminate these food group(s) for 3-6 weeks

Read the ingredient lists of foods and take note of hidden ingredients. Example: In soy sauces, the sauce may contain flour. If you’re looking to try eliminating gluten, exclude them as well. Depending on how well you tolerate it, you can slowly reintroduce the food into your diet.

Observe and note the body’s changes while following this diet. Have you noticed a difference in your skin, digestive system, breathing problems, and nervous system’s cognitive abilities?

Due to dietary restrictions, nourish your body with other nutrient-rich foods. Let the experts assist you in reviewing the effectiveness of the elimination diet.

Step 3: After 3-6 weeks, slowly reintroduce each of those foods (1 type/week) into your regular diet in very small amounts and observe how your body performs both physically and mentally.

When using the diet, it is necessary to adhere to two basic principles. First, the menu should not contain allergenic products.

Second, nutrition should be as balanced as possible. The diet should contain all the substances necessary for the body: vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.

The most important part of an elimination diet is to ensure proper nutrition, as eliminating foods can lead to deficiencies of essential substances. In addition, our bodies are constantly growing and changing, so the results of an elimination diet in the past may not be true today. Keep an open mind and patience to explore, increase awareness, and understand your own body.
