Elimination Diet- Reintroduction Period

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been on an elimination diet for the past 2 weeks to determine any other food intolerances/allergies. Everything has been going very well, and I'm about ready to enter into the re-introduction phase. I just have a quick question, I know I'm supposed to add a new food every three days, and wait three days to see if I have a reaction. I am just a little unsure of how many times a day I'm supposed to have the new food. I vaguely recall that I'm supposed to have the new food three times in a day, is that correct? Any answers would help so much! Thanks!

You want to eat each new item in a pure form and have it 3 times a day for a week. If you haven't had any reaction after a week that food is safe for you. If you react before the week is up of course you would stop the challenge with that food, drop it and then after the symptoms resolve go on to the next new food.

Thanks, another question... does "D" on one of the reintroduction days count as a reaction?

ANY changes are important to note. And I really mean ANY - digestive or not.

What you could do is, eat it once; wait 5 hours, if you don't have a reaction, eat more.

What do you eat for the first 2 weeks? I'm thinking about trying this.

Hi Ravenwood,

I hope you are doing well!

I hope you receive this message......I was reading an old post from a few years back where you discussed your elimination diet (turkey, sweet potato, rice, and cranberry juice). I am super sensitive and suffer from myoclonus if I ingest gluten or use cosmetic products containing gluten. I have been truly gluten-free for approx five months and I still cannot rid myself of the myoclonus. Some nights are better than others but it is runing my life (severe sleep deprivation). Sorry for rambling....Since I keep running into possible hidden gluten sources, I have decided to start an ELIMINATION DIET (as you did). My dietician ran an organic acids test on me and we know that I am deficient in several of the B vitamins (not B12 though). My test also revealed an exposure to Xylene (a toxic chemical found in gasoline, paint, household cleaning products, plastics, upholstery, mattresses, carpeting, etc.). My dietician started me on the Metagenics Ultraclear medical food approx. a month ago. Here are my questions for you...........1.Are you Super Sensitive to trace gluten and cross contamination. 2. Are there any vitamin brands (i.e. Country Life) that you found that you can use safely (with no reactions). 3. What brand of Turkey did you eat safely (gluten-free, soy free, dairy free, corn free). I have yet to find a turkey product that did not contain preservatives or possible trace gluten. Can you eat any of the commercially made chicken broths without having a reaction? I would like to start this diet asap but finding safe turkey is a challenge for me. I suspect that I may not be able to tolerate must gluten-free grains.. but I hope I am wrong. My only other "suspects" for possible CC are my C.Life vitamins (I have several bottles) or the Metagenics Ultraclear.

Thank you for your support and ideas to help me get to the bottom of this major frustration.

Warmest Regards,

SylviaAnn
