Test Time

After your body has been allergen-free for one week, the slate is clean. So now it’s time to test the troublesome seven -- dairy, wheat, corn, sugar, soy, eggs and peanuts -- to find out which is your personal trigger.

Every three days, add one of these foods back into your diet, starting with one modest serving (4 ounces of milk, one slice of wheat bread or one egg, for example) the first day, two servings the second day and three servings the third day. Watch for signs of trouble, such as cravings, heartburn, gas, headaches, irritability, bloating, congestion or trouble concentrating.

If you develop symptoms, you’ve found your trigger -- the food you’re smart to eat in limited quantities (or avoid entirely) so you can stay at the peak of health. No reaction at all? Keep that food in your diet rotation and begin testing another one to rule that food sensitivity in -- or out!
