Going to do to elimination - is Ghee ok?

Commented on March 28, 2014

I've decided to do an elimination diet for a couple months, so no processed sugar, no grains, no cheese, no ice cream cheats, going to get all my calcium from bones (canned fish/brittle broth bones)

While i'm at it is there anything else I should exclude?

I do love clarified butter, do you think this will be ok to continue using or should I exclude it with all the other dairy?

If I eat lots & lots of normal butter (like a whole stick) the next day i break out in weird places like the back of my hand, although I seem fine with cheese, but maybe it just takes longer to effect me

I generally eat very fatty salads with some fish, meat, liver, avocados, olives, nuts, bone broth...

I'm going to stick with animal fats at first, mainly home rendered pastured lard (and hopefully ghee) as I seem to do best with them, then i'll reintroduce other fats like olive oil/avocado oil etc after a while...

Thanks in advance for any tips

Here's a list of the foods I eat:

Veggies:

Broccoli, Kale, Cauliflower (white), Cabbages, Brussel Sprouts, Bell Peppers, Avocado, Mushrooms, Various Herbs n Spices

Protein:

Sardines, Mackerel, Anchovies, Pork, Lamb, Egg Yolks, Liver

Fats:

Lard, Tallow, Ghee, EVOO, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil

Nuts:

Brazil, Macadamia, Almond, Hazelnut

Supplements:

Bone Broth, Celtic Sea Salt, Magnesium Chelate, Potassium Chloride

Good advice, I could be sensitive to the nuts or brassicas. It's mainly mild acne & keratosis pilaris that seems to respond to exercise & diet but not sure exactly what, it could just be accumulated crap from eating SAD foods for so many years. Also sleep quality, under eye bags, red eyes, basically vanity!

Not sure what the issues are you are working on, but I'd probably just cut out all the nuts first for a few weeks and see what it does for you. Of course depending on what you are after. If that doesn't work, add them back and lose the broc, caul & related veggies.

Thanks, I love it too much to give it up right away so will stick with it for now, but good to know that some people very sensitive to dairy don't do well with it so it could potentially be problematic.

I think we need a list of everything you eat so we can suggest what to get rid of. Don't eat purple cauliflower, but orange is ok, see what I mean?

Severe elimination diets are tough to stick with, you can also just eliminate one group for a few weeks, note changes and substitute something else for elimination. Much easier IMO to stick with. I did a strict Candida diet years ago and it was the worst 3 weeks I'd ever spent, sinus infections raging along with eating almost nothing.

It should be ok. But if whatever symptoms don't go away, try eliminating the ghee too and see if it makes a difference. Most people are ok even with butter, but some are super sensitive to dairy, and react even to ghee.
