Do you ever feel like something is off with your body but can't put your finger on it? You may have a food intolerance or sensitivity. To find out what's causing your digestive discomfort, aches, pains, or headaches, you might want to try an elimination diet.
You'll start by removing certain foods from your diet -- the foods that are well-known for causing symptoms. Then, you'll reintroduce the foods you eliminate one at a time and take note of any symptoms. The process takes about six weeks, and if you have a food sensitivity or intolerance, you'll be able to see which food is causing your body distress and avoid it.
The Way Elimination Diets Work
There are two phases to the elimination diet. The first is the elimination, where you remove the foods that could trigger the symptoms you're experiencing. You'll stop eating them for 2 to 3 weeks. These foods are commonly known as allergens, such as dairy, nuts, wheat, gluten, eggs, and seafood.
After that, you'll reintroduce the foods you eliminated. You'll take your time observing for 2 to 3 days after reintroducing each of the eliminated foods to see if any of them cause a reaction.
Common symptoms of food sensitivities and intolerances are rashes or changes in the skin, pain in the joints, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, bloating, and stomach pain or cramps. When you don't have any symptoms after reintroducing a certain food group, you can safely continue to eat it. But if you notice these symptoms, you've found your trigger food and can now work to keep it out of your diet.
