What is eating a Hypo-Allergenic Diet?
Hypo-Allergenic is also known as Oligoantigenic or Elimination diet.
This means that we avoid eating the most common ingredients that cause people inflammation and digestive issues. IT IS NOT A DIET TO LOSE WEIGHT. It should be viewed more as a food sensitivity TEST.
The top 5 offenders include: wheat, dairy, corn, soy, and eggs.
Note that some of the foods on the list are very nutritious, so if you are not sensitive to the food, bring them back into your diet (ie. eggs).
Also remember, many non-gluten or non-dairy foods may not be healthy. Just because they remove those ingredients does not mean they haven’t replaced them with other poorer quality ingredients.
Try and stay away from packaged, canned, processed and deep fried foods. And be cautious of dehydrated and dried foods for they often contain added sugars and preservatives. Raw and fresh is often your best bet for optimal health.
