New Updated Elimination diet version 3 is here!

Here you can find attached a copy of the brand new elimination diet to download. Think of it primarily as a toxin holiday for the body! Here are a few thoughts on it.
It is not primarily a calorie restriction diet, there are no limits set on the amount of anything you eat. However, if fat loss is your primary concern then i would reccomend not eating huge portions of nuts or grains. Aim to get the majority of your carbohydrate from vegetable sources. I am NOT saying eliminate grains , just avoid huge portions of them.
You will find that by eliminating processed foods that you then eliminate most sugar and simple carbs anyway from your diet.
The body does store some toxins in fat cells so eating a too calorie restricted diet whilst being bad for you for many reasons will also be ineffective at eliminating all these toxins if you do not clean up your eating as well. This will make it harder to get rid of stubborn fat as a steady supply of toxins entering the body will not encourage your body to use the fat it needs for storing them.

Hi Chris
Am interested in trying the elimination although unfortunately am not able to clear offending items out of house due to other occupants! Could I join the elimination group?
Have a few questions too.
Is salmon left off the protein group on purpose?
Is tinned fish a no-no too (salmon, tuna etc)?
Is rye bread okay during the first 10 days? What can I put on it? *(usually put honey)
Tks

Hi Charlotte sorry i haven't replied earlier, iv'e been looking after the baby a lot the last few days so i haven't had the time to answer.

Salmon is fine, avoid strictly speaking though avoid farmed salmon and get wild salmon or organic if you can afford it. Smoked salmon is good snack alternative to processed meats as it contains only salt like parma ham.

Tinned foods should be avoided but are not strictly forbidden. Eating tinned foods goes against the principle of eating fresh, denatured foods whilst on the diet. Also remember that you are not allowed any processed foods so if they contain any additives they are out. There is also controversy over the leaking of toxins into tinned foods , especially BPA, as an example of this here is a link to a report

Rye bread is ok but check that it's not mixed with wheat, some rye products are.

Finally honey i'm afraid is banned for the 30 days as it's a simple sugar. However it is a super food and can certainly be reintoduced after this period . Simple sugars are of particular importance if you suffer from body fat around the love handles and upper back as this is linked to excess insulin and cutting down sugars and carbs is essential to target these problem areas.

However to show you how good it is here is some info from an article i have copied for you :)


The majority of honey that you would buy in a supermarket is not the same honey that has been eaten for thousands of years. Only careful and minimal processing will preserve the many nutritive benefits of honey. Honey should never be heated during extraction or the enzymes will be destroyed, nor should it be fine filtered.
The fine filtering of honey removes much of what makes raw honey a healthy and desirable food. This would include particles of pollen, beeswax and propolis. When the pollen is still present in the honey it is said to provide relief to allergy sufferers. Small amounts of pollen act as an inoculant against large amounts in the air that trigger reactions like the runny nose and itchy eyes of hay fever. As honey is predigested it is very easy for the body to digest. When it is consumed with carbohydrates like porridge or toast, the enzymes in the honey help with the digestion of carbohydrates. Different honeys from different nectar sources are quite different. They have different combinations of sugars, minerals and enzymes. For example, very dark honeys have a high mineral content. Lighter honeys are lower in minerals and are usually milder in taste.
Another benefit to honey is that it is a good source of antioxidants so play a big role in the prevention of cancer as well as heart disease. It can also be used as a moisturiser to be later removed with splashes of water. Not only will it moisturise the skin but it will also help combat acne with only a small amount being needed for both uses. Bee keepers who regularly eat honey are said to live long and healthy lives.
Honey is a natural antiseptic. Medical journals cite more than 600 cases in which honey was employed to treat wounds by preventing infection. Honey contains a antimicrobial agent, which prevents infections by killing the bacteria in and around your wound. Many types of bacteria cant survive in honey so wounds heal, swelling eases and tissue can grow back.

Hope this all helps

Hi Chris

I would like to try the elimination diet albeit a few days late.

Can you send me a copy of the cook book.

One question, I am taking some medication for a 3 month period which probably defeats the whole idea of detoxing will I be wasting my time and energies?

Caroline
Hi Caroline, there is no set starting date for the diet so you can begin whenever. Can't say about the meds as i don't know what they are and i'm not an expert of course. However the benefits of the diet would still far outweigh not following it whatever you are taking! I will send you an invite to join the group, you will find the cookbook there to download :)
