God I hope I don't have to do this. Eggs are a big part of what make Paleo work for me. I never had so many eggs in my life but now am facing weird digestive issues. Trying to shotgun a solution but might end up on a 30 day super-clean-then-reintroduce plan too, whatever one may call it.

Absolutely. It's critical to remove ALL possible allergens. Often, we "love" the foods we're allergic to without knowing it. By removing a food for 30 days and then reintroducing them, you'll be able to notice symptoms.

Look at it this way, would you be on a paleo diet if you had said "Is it absolutely necessary to remove bagels? I love them!" Yeah, we all love bagels, but grains are harmful to us. The same is not necessarily true of eggs, but you won't be able to find out unless you test.

Even if it turns out you have a problem with eggs, you can reintroduce them a few months later. Antibodies can last upto 6 months, or forever. So once you've been paleo for something like six months, if it turns out you're allergic to eggs, you can reintroduce them and see if you still have any symptoms.

If you don't, enjoy. But you want to a) test the food for 30 days to ensure you don't have any issues, and b) if you do have issues, give enough time to both heal any leaky-gut as well as let any antibodies expire.

in the words of robb wolf, try it strict for 30 days, then reintroduce, see how you look,feel, and perform and then decide from there. Cut out the eggs for 30 days strictly, then see how you do. I love eggs but i'm finding right now i have problems with the whites, i'm going to try strictly local eggs for 2 weeks and see if that makes a difference, i notice it after i eat everytime

If you want to see how you do without the histamines, then you'll need a little break. I guess it depends why you're doing the auto immune protocol. If it's for stomach and digestive issues and you always eat eggs, maybe it's the eggs and you can do without. (author is Diane Sanfilippo.)
