...by eliminating gluten, all grains including corn and rice, potatos, dairy, soy, nuts, beans, cruciferous veggies, onions+garlic, sulphites, caffeine, spices and acidic foods....
I agree with mommida in giving it more time. At this point, I'd be willing to do anything. Since you've found a diet that makes you feel good, you're ahead of me! As I was reading your strict diet restrictions, it sounded very much like my restrictions, except I must also exclude meat, fish, and eggs. I'm also trying to cut back on processed foods, even eliminate them if I can (within reason, I mean, I don't wanna be an idiot and end up dieing of malnutrition). I was wondering if you could tell me what it was you do eat, with a reasonably limited amount of effort. Who knows! Maybe I even have your condition, but am not yet willing to revisit the doctor to find out because I've already spent more than my share of time and money with doctors over the years, and I don't wanna go through that again. I'm perfectly willing to eliminate anything and everything from my diet, as long as there's something else I can eat instead so I don't have to spend so much time and effort wondering what in the world I can eat. If I can just get started, maybe I can create new dishes and meal plans from there, and I can help find other ways to get the nutriment we need. I haven't eliminated caffeine, potatoes, rice, corn, soy, beans, or some acidic foods, and I don't know what cruciferous veggies are (nor does my spelling dictionary), nor sulphites (in terms of food), but like I said, I'd be willing if it would just make me feel better I'd love to be able to help out, but I need a starting point.

Breakfast: boiled eggs + canned fruit (peaches, pears, mangos or berries) or if I have more time I make pancakes from 2 eggs + 2 bananas in the blender.
Lunch: can of tuna or sardines and lots of cooked carrots.
Snacks: avocado or more canned fruit or bananas
Dinner: meat + squash
I'd prefer to not eat so much meat, but I wouldn't have enough calories to live on if I didn't. I react strongly to beans (including soy), nuts (even nut butters) and dairy so there isn't much choice for proteins.
Cruciferous veggies are cabbage, cauliflower, turnips broccoli etc. These are high fiber and hard to digest.
Eliminating caffeine might be a good start. Soy and beans can cause problems too, but this wouldn't leave you much to eat.
