How to follow the elimination diet

An elimination diet can be a useful tool for controlling bothersome symptoms of gastrointestinal conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Oftentimes, symptoms can be severe, distressing, and even confusing when you’re not sure what triggers you.

First things first: You shouldn’t go on an elimination diet without consulting your doctor, who may refer you to a dietitian to help support you through the process. There is a risk of developing nutritional deficiencies with any major dietary change and it is important to ensure that you are following the diet effectively for best results. Many foods contain ingredients you wouldn’t necessarily expect, which can derail your diet for elimination, so keeping a food diary and working with a nutritionist can make this process easier.
