STEP 2: Reintroduction of foods.
This process will take another 3 weeks as we strategically reintroduce the foods that we have eliminated over the past 3 weeks. Each week you will only be adding back certain types of foods while you monitor your symptoms after eating said food type.
The fewer foods you reintroduce on a given day, the more likely you are to pinpoint food sensitivities.
Week 4 – Reintroduce eliminated dairy products and meats
Week 5 – Reintroduce eliminated starches, legumes, nuts and seeds
Week 6 – Reintroduce eliminated fruits and vegetables
During reintroduction, pay close attention to how you are feeling. Write down any changes you are feeling whether positive or negative.
Signs of food sensitivities include:
- Joint pain
- Brain fog
- Skin breakout or rashes
- Bowel changes or GI pain
- Sinus or other respiratory issues
- Increase in energy (this can actually be a physical sign of stress)
