Food Elimination

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 28, 2011 at 3:35 PM

Here I'm going to list the foods that only seem to improve my health, foods that often cause problems, but I still have, and foods that I completely avoid. (Focusing on reactivity)

Foods I eat a lot of - Broccoli, asparagus, wild caught salmon, grass-fed beef lard, Brussels sprouts, grass-fed beef and lamb, rasberries, avacados, mesculin salad, smoked salmon, veal, grass-fed veal liver, eggplant, zuchinni, garlic, lemon, kale, Bison, coconut oil, apples

Foods that I have, but create problems - Sweet Potatoes, any kind of potato, chicken, eggs, onions, carrots, coconut ice cream, pork, pork fat, duck, coffee, chocolate, bananas, cantelope, mangos, strawberries, pineapple, peppers, olive oil, agave nectar, guar gum, maple syrup, celery, duck fat

Foods I Avoid - Grains, nuts, legumes, dairy, alcohol, almost all processed food

This is the list for now. I hope people will respond with their own food lists. This way we can compare how foods react and maybe make some conclusions.

I was told that the worst of the toxins occur in the skin, so I've tried tomato paste and skinless tomatoes in chilli etc, with no ill effects. Uncooked and with skin are 2 more variations I want to test. They make my joints ache.

no yolks-bummer no? I find that if I put one in occassionally in a mix of egg whites, not so bad, but I'm intolerant to the yolks from my last tests. I tried to do my own test on the wrist and ended up with dry egg yolk all over the bed....didnt stay on!

Coconut oil makes me really sick to my stomach. Too bad because it's delicious.

I find this interesting because eating coconut oil actually lifts my mood after eating it.

what happens when you eat cocounut oil, if you want to explain. And it's a bummer for me too about the alcohol

intersting. I'm not sure what to make of the differences yet, but it's nonetheless interesting.

I like your mention of serving size re: vegetables. I imagine eating a plateful of brussels sprouts may have a different effect than eating two or three. I also wonder about eating them in tandem with other foods: if I eat them alone, I seem to be OK, but as part of a larger meal, am more likely to get some gas/bloating.

foods I avoid: beef, corn in any form, sweet potatoes, sugar, processed foods in general, soy in any form, black coffee, juice of any kind, rice, artificial sweeteners, caffeinated teas

Foods I eat a lot of/frequently: "White" sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, garlic, peppers, eggs, salmon, bison, beef, bone broth (kind of), lamb, tomatoes, celery, lettuce/salad mix, black coffee, balsamic vinegar

Foods I eat in moderation: Tuna, chicken, turkey, sardines, olive oil, olives, white rice, white potatoes, pork, chicken livers, carrots, sauerkraut, parsnips, asparagus, squash, orange-fleshed sweet potatoes.

Foods I usually avoid: Alcohol, sugar, gluten grains, dairy, fruit, vegetable oils, coconut oil, all nuts and legumes, chocolate

But actually the only three that make me feel REALLY bad are alcohol , coconut oil, and gluten in large quantities. I get incredibly flushed and nauseated quickly when I drink, sucks because the rest of my family has super high tolerance but I guess I missed out.

Love this question, can't wait to draw conclusions!

Foods I eat with no negative effects: gf beef, wild venison, turkey, bison, canned and fresh fishies, reasonable amounts of broccoli, avocado, leafy greens, mushrooms, seaweed, shell fish, tea, tallow, olive oil, and coconut oil in moderation (and early in the day- before bed and I'll puke it up...).

Foods I will occasionally have, but often create problems(ie. I won't keep in the house but will buy one serving on a whim or eat if it's free (and often regret it...)): all other veggies (besides those below),85 or darker chocolate, eggs, pork, chicken, nuts, seeds, coffee.

Foods I avoid: corn, sugar, soy in any form, gluten, dairy, grains, legumes, vegetable oils, coconut (besides the oil- turns my lips blue!), and fruit.

I must add that although I can list these foods and know their effects on my body, I'll still 'cheat' sometimes. What masochistic creatures we are!

Interesting question! I like Kelly's response format, though, as it focuses on the effects. Here's mine

Foods I eat with no negative effects: small quantities of most vegetables, chicken, pork, moderate portions of beef and lamb, fish of any kind, butter, blueberries, apples, bananas, oranges, sweet potatoes, coconut cream, small and non-daily quantities of eggs

Foods I will occasionally have, but often create problems: larger portions of one vegetable, onions, broccoli, brussel sprouts, tomato, carrots, dark chocolate, large portions of beef, salads/lettuce most kinds, wine, dried coconut, other fruit, fruit juices

Foods I avoid: caffeine, corn, sugar, processed foods in general, soy in any form, artificial sweeteners, gluten, all dairy apart from butter, all grains and legumes, nuts, nut butters and nut flours.

I'm still doing my elimination, and have yet to test raw tomatoes, whey, probiotics, fermented foods, apple cider vinegar, gluten in things like malt vinegar, and coconut oil.
