Whole Foods Only diet to improve healing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Since going gluten-free I have not healed properly and I believe that this is due to leaky gut and other food intolerances.

There was a few diets recommended to me on this website to improve healing. One of them was the Paleo AIP diet. I wanted to do the Paleo AIP diet because it is the most effective for healing, but I am finding it very difficult because of the amount of preparation that is involved.

Another diet that was recommended to me on this website was the Whole Foods Only diet. I am considering trying this instead of the Paleo AIP diet because it looks easier.

So my question is, does anyone have experience with using the Whole Foods Only diet to improve healing? Will it be enough to heal leaky gut?

I have never tried any particular diet to improve healing other than a standard gluten-free diet, so I assume this is at least worth trying, but I just wanted to know what your experiences with this have been.

Thanks

My library is closed during our stay at home order so I can't recall which paleo and aip books I checked out. I read up on the diets , but had to individual it base on my own reactions etc.

Here are some links to the diets I think you mentioned

https://paleoleap.com/paleo-101/

Unfortunately I can't find the title to the book I read about it. It was an older book.

I also read books by Dr. Meyers to learn more about AIP

Whole 30 maybe the other one you are thinking of perhaps?

If cooking elaborate meals is a problem maybe start with smoothies, look for some crockpot, or instant pot recipes. Often just keeping a simple format like roasted veggie as your side, but rotating veggies would work for you? Then you just swap your rotate proteins, rotate veggies etc. Could get you started.

 

Good luck

The forums often suggest whole foods as the best way to avoid cross contamination of gluten. AIP is one diet Paleo is another. My understanding they are different.

I got books out of the library about them to research.

This is the diet I'm talking about. Paleo AIP is an extension of the Paleo diet.

Ok then you already know about it. I didn't read the Paleo way I read one of the older books about paleo and Dr Meyers for AIP. It's possible they are different then your Paleo way.

Good luck

Sorry for the confusion. I will look at the links you posted to see if there are differences in the diets. Paleo AIP is very restrictive and one of those diets might be easier.

Aaron275, 

I found this book by Sarah Ballentyne, The Paleo Approach Reverse Autoimmune Disease And Heal Your Body, most helpful. It explains what's happening with your body in autoimmune diseases and all about the diet.

Sarah Ballentyne also has a web site

https://www.thepaleomom.com/start-here/paleo-diet/

And she even has cookbooks....Some of the recipes are too gourmet for me, so I keep it simple.  

Preparation for meals doesn't have to be complicated.  I often have a ground beef or ground lamb patty (you can fry a burger, right?) and slice up a zucchini, squash, or carrots and saute that in the same pan with a little water to steam it as the burger cooks.  Or chuck it in the oven and bake.  It may be a bit boring, but you're eating to live, not living to eat.  

Hope this helps!
