It should come as no surprise, that I'm 100% in favor of elimination diets. I guess I should say, I'm a fan of elimination diets so long as the diet is completed with a specific health goal in mind, and not just as a short term endeavor to lose weight.
Here's what I see most often: a lady hops on the elimination-diet-train after hearing from her bestie who tried one and lost 10 pounds in 30 days. So she jumps in blindly, avoids the eliminated foods (as defined by said bestie) for 30 days, and then celebrates day 31 by indulging in margaritas, corn chips, and queso. She wakes up on day 32 with a hangover, and vows to “be better next time”. Sound familiar?
