Default Elimination Diet

So today is day 2 of my elimination diet, the doctor is hoping to find out what causes my throat to swell from time to time as well as reduce inflamation throughout my body, which in turn should kick start weightloss and help solve some small issues I have. I went cold turkey on my sugar and caffine and processed foods he said I could ween myself off but I have huge lack of self control and if it is there I will eat it.

So I can have fruits (except citric), vegtables(except potatoes and tomatoes), brown rice, nuts although I largley suspect it is almonds that make my throat swell so I am avaiding those, and fresh meats, and there are some grains too but my mind has not wrapped around those yet.

So I am sure some of you have done an elemination diet, is there a good site for recipies or some suggestions on things to try?

I really like Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen - even bought their cookbook, which is unusual for me. They have a large section in their cookbook about a three phase elimination diet. They offer some valuable info online for free. Some of the specifics may be more or less restrictive than what your doctor asked you to do specifically, but I'm sure the basic gist could provide some inspiration.

Here's a link to a landing page, with a few dozen recipes: http://www.nourishingmeals.com/2010/...-diet-its.html

I did this diet all on my own. The site you shared, Desiderata, was VERY informative! Wish I'd seen it four years ago.

Keywis25, I see that the veggies eliminated are in the nightshade family. You might want to include eggplant and peppers in that list since they are also nightshades. Best of luck to you! I discovered a soy sensitivity, but am also recently affected by lactose, eggs and grains. This happened after a particularly nasty stomach flu.

The website is full of great info so thank you one more time for that and I might need to invest in one of the cookbooks they have
