Starting an Elimination Diet

First, some good news: An elimination diet is not a calorie-restricted diet, so you don’t need to weigh or measure anything, says Dr. Powell. “So eat until you’re comfortably full, and snack between meals to stave off hunger pangs.”

Just pick and choose from the tasty meals listed here -- ignoring any that don’t appeal to you, and repeating the ones that you enjoy. You can make ingredient substitutions if you wish, as long as you strictly avoid the top seven troublemakers (dairy, wheat, corn, sugar, soy, eggs and peanuts). Drink eight glasses of water daily -- and enjoy herbal teas, seltzer or mineral water if you’d like some variety.

You’ll notice that both honey and maple syrup are included in this plan. “The fact is, honey and pure maple syrup are plant extracts,” says Dr. Haas. “They’re natural, unrefined sweeteners, so they don’t cause the problems that heavily-processed white sugar does.”
