Dr. Fasano diet for 6 year old, (gluten contamination elimination diet)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can get more info about Dr. Fasano's diet?  I plan to start my 6 year old on it and can't any find details... I have so many questions!  Any blogs out there that anyone knows about with recipes/ideas?

Why no frozen fruit?  I get that frozen veggies are often processed with seasonings, but fruit?

Why is Gatorade allowed?!

Can I make my own rice flour to use?

Is the following allowed:  fresh garlic, peanuts, ground beef/turkey, cocoa, maple syrup, sugar, coconuts, cinnamon sticks... (that's my list so far)

Thanks for any help anyone has!!!

This has study contains a table with the list of foods:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/#!po=23.2143

I think the diet is trying to avoid all processed foods.  I have no idea why Gatoraid is on the list!  There must be a reason that some foods are not included.  You would think that garlic, fresh should be fine.   Same goes for unshelled peanuts.  Ground meats you would think too should be fine if not ground by a butcher who stuffs chicken breasts or chops.  The other items are processed.  Even frozen fruit has the possibility of being contaminated.  

DR. Fasano's Gluten Freedom book does advise that this diet be supervised by a celiac-savvy dietician and or doctor.

Feel free to try what ever diet works for you and modify it a bit to make it a tad more healthy. PS plain rice noodles from JUST rice are available from the lundberg rice company. I would personally just avoid all processed foods, Anything with added sugars, or questionable content. I personally found my perfect diet just this last month by eliminating all grains, fruits, and starchy veggies moving over to a high fat/protein diet free of most carbs.  We are all different in the way our body works and we each pretty much to tailor make a custom diet to each of our bodies that works best for us. Took me 3 years of tweaking so far and I still feel it needs a tad adjustment.  

I got to admit that list is a tad funny on some allowed and not allowed.....I for one will never eat real dairy again, mix thing really between a 10 year intolerance and a bit of a stepped back and logical point of view, and mixed research.   But that is another long winded story, and while on that note we do suggest dropping dairy for the first few months due to the way the body processes it in relationship to damaged intestines.
