Should you try an elimination diet?
Wellness Wednesday is officially back for 2017!!
We took a little hiatus there for the holidays to highlight the Whole90 challenge and some of our great success stories from 2016. But we’re officially back, and we’ve got a whole bunch of fresh new content for you. We’ve got new science videos, new Amy’s Treat Corner videos, new cooking demos, new testimonials, and a very special Paleo restaurant feature coming up soon!
Also, in an effort to make the videos more manageable to watch I’ll be making most of the science videos going forward a decent amount shorter. I still have a couple long ones in the cue (like today’s) that will be showing up. So, going forward I’ll be making the science videos in particular shorter for you guys so they’re more accessible for everyone. With all that being said let’s get to the new video for the week on elimination diets!
Elimination diets are all the rage these days whether it’s a gluten-free diet, a FODMAP-free diet, nightshade-free diet, 21 day sugar detox, etc. There are many different types of elimination diets, but what they all have in common is eliminating some food group or groups from your diet for a period of time.
In this video we explain what an elimination diet is and how certain types of elimination diets can be helpful for you depending on your health goals. There are certain types of elimination diets that we think can be very beneficial, like a Whole30, and there are others that can be useful but may be more trouble than they’re worth.
One of the main points made in the video though is that most elimination diets are merely symptom control for a particular health issue and aren’t always getting to the root cause of the issue. It’s always important to look for that deeper root cause of a health issue that may be causing you to feel better on an elimination diet. Otherwise you might be stuck doing an elimination diet for the rest of your life, which is no fun and is missing the point because most of these elimination diets are only meant to be done for a short period of time before getting back to a slightly more relaxed form of eating.
