Eating with an elimination diet

Take your food at the usual time for you, choosing foods from the "Yes" column and excluding products from the "No" column of the table below. Since the "Yes" column almost certainly does not contain certain foods from your diet, you will have to replace them with something. Use the program recipes (see chapter 11). All of them are included in the elimination diet.
The most difficult to change the breakfast menu, since bread, cereals, milk and eggs are not allowed.
Try breakfast with liquid dishes like energy puree with almond oil and cardamom. For breakfast, you can eat fish, chicken or vegetables left over from dinner, as well as brown rice or "bread" from quinoa with a small amount of fruit and nuts. Fruit can be spread with almond oil.
For lunch, eat salads containing licensed proteins, soups or other dishes with beans, lentils and crocks instead of sandwiches, hamburgers, burritos and other usual dishes for lunch.
For dinner, eat food prepared according to the recipes of the program, as well as green vegetables and allowed croup (preferably kinovu) instead of white rice, pasta or potatoes. Steam fish, fried chicken and baked vegetables are the usual food for this phase.

Remember that during this period of time you need to start lowering the level of caffeine consumption. If desired, you can drink green tea and mate, which have a tonic effect, characteristic of coffee.
The less you consume caffeine, the better. In general, in this preparatory phase, drink plenty of clean water. To add flavor to it, you can add lemon, cucumber and mint. Herbal teas will replace black tea and coffee, but they should be drunk with plenty of plain water, not instead.
If you fill the stomach late at night and eat early in the morning the next day, you deprive the body of the opportunity to fully carry out the process of detoxification
With every opportunity, buy organic products. Several weeks of the program and preparation for it make it possible to significantly reduce the toxic load on the body. Reducing the impact of toxins contained in food is not a problem if you have access to organic products. The most important among them are organic meat products, because toxins accumulate as they move along the food chain.
Look for organic, hormone-free chicken and meat and try to buy fish caught in the wild, and not grown on fish farms. Do not skimp on organic peaches, apples, strawberries, celery, spinach, carrots, beans, avocados and pumpkins. Always thoroughly clean the water with fruit and vegetables.

Observance of the elimination diet helps to achieve
following objectives:
Eliminate from the diet packaged and processed foods and beverages containing additives, preservatives and other chemicals, including hidden sources, which you may not know about, such as seasonings and sauces.
2. Reducing the number of potential irritants in the diet. Some traditional products of the daily diet have a hidden irritating effect. Representatives of the Solanaceae family - tomatoes, sweet peppers, eggplants and potatoes - can cause increased sensitivity. According to the provisions of Ayurveda, when they are used in excess, inhibiting the digestive system, they promote the formation of a certain type of amma in the body. Strawberries, chocolate, crustaceans and nuts of some species can cause allergic reactions.
3. Decrease in acidity and increase in alkalinity of the internal environment. Red meat, dairy products, bananas and excessive quantities of wheat flour products contribute to increased acidity. In addition, these are the products most causing mucus formation, which prevents the absorption of nutrients.
4. Elimination from the diet of products with inflammatory effect. Simple carbohydrates such as sugar, wheat flour, white rice, induce the body to release a large amount of insulin into the bloodstream, which regulates the absorption of sugar by the cells. This hormone promotes the development of inflammatory processes. Hydrogenated cooking oils, known as trans fats, also cause inflammation (cold-pressed oils are not hydrogenated).
5. Saturation of the diet with anti-inflammatory nutrients: omega-3 fatty acids, polyphenols from berries and numerous plant components that promote hepatic detoxification.
6. Elimination of foods that suppress certain reactions of hepatic detoxification. Such products include grapefruits.
7. Elimination from the diet of foods on which fungi (peanuts) often multiply or which are the nutrient medium for yeast that cause dysbacteriosis (sugar, alcohol and dairy products). Remember that alcohol is obtained as a result of yeast fermentation in ethanol sugar from grain or fruit. Its yeast mixture contributes to the emergence of dysbiosis. In addition, alcohol can contain a mixture of preservatives (sulphites in wine) and has the properties of a depressant.
8. Elimination of caffeine, alcohol and, ideally, tobacco. These products load the adrenal glands, adversely affect the process of hepatic detoxification and create free radicals that can damage cells (in particular, their DNA and RNA), especially when consumed daily and in large quantities.
9. Elimination of foodstuffs saturated with pesticides, hormones and antibiotics of cereals, meat, eggs and dairy products, as well as genetically modified products that go on sale without appropriate labeling, the negative impact of which on health is yet to be identified (especially soy and wheat ).
