Total Elimination Diet Meal Plan

Many live in fear of not knowing the right foods to eat. And the reasons are sensitivities and intolerances. These conditions force people to stay off loads of food types, especially when they’re not certain which ones are specifically problematic for them. But there’s a way to find out, and that’s why this meal plan exists.

Total Elimination Diet Meal Plan recipe

The total elimination diet meal plan is designed to help you pinpoint which foods may be the cause of your discomfort. And it also helps you relieve certain digestive issues or similar symptoms and finally leads you to a state of dietary certainty.

Features

The total elimination diet plan is a method of identifying food sensitivities. Many develop certain symptoms or illnesses after consuming certain foods, but they aren’t sure what’s causing it because we eat different things daily. This problem is what the meal plan comes to solve, and it does it in a simplistic form that makes it easier to determine the cause of such sensitivity.

Most elimination diet plans concentrate on certain types of foods: gluten, seafood, seeds, and nuts, etc. But here, we follow a comprehensive elimination approach by removing the most common items that cause intolerances and allergies. As such, this food plan is void of eggs, milk, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, fish, soy, and shellfish- the eight most notorious culprits that cause food sensitivities. And it includes everything else, proteins and legumes, fruits, seeds, leafy vegetables, wheat-free grains, and starchy tubers. You can also infuse interesting flavors with spices and herbs, as permitted during the diet regimen.

The meal plan extends for a week, with three daily menus and snacks between the meals. It’s also set at a daily calorie count of 1500 but can be modified to a higher or lower level. Each recipe is also planned to be as tasty as possible while remaining easy to prepare. And some recipes are repeated, so you can work on a budget while trying to determine the cause of your food sensitivity.

Remember to consult your dietician and personal doctor before engaging in any meal plan. They’re in the best place to help you track your progress and keep your practice safe as you go along. Plus, your dietician will help you analyze the proper daily calorific count your body needs and track each food item included in the diet plan for better identification.;

Benefits of this Diet

Though this meal plan is designed for fishing out trigger foods in your daily diet, it’s also a practical option for short-term weight loss needs. The reason is the diet plan eliminates tons of foods that can encourage weight gain, though it’s for a short period. Still, you will note a significant drop in body weight during the scheduled time due to the food plan.

With this meal plan, you can easily identify foods that cause discomfort in your system. For example, you can eliminate gluten-containing items or foods that disrupt your bowels after eating. Also, you can pick out certain foods in the meal plan if you discover they’re responsible for the problem, e.g., dairy. And the menus are appropriately portioned, so you can practice the diet without over-eating in the process.

This meal plan can be modified to suit vegan needs to eliminate animal protein foods. It’s also adjustable to Mediterranean diets, as it contains loads of whole foods and seeds. You can also consider the meal plan if you complete an elimination process while on a paleo diet. And it can be extended to more than a week or month, depending on your needs.
