The elimination diet – and spin offs like the Whole30 or Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) – have morphed into a silver bullet for diagnosing food sensitivities to curing bloat, depression and skin issues.
In a culture that buys into the “healthy living is a sacrifice” myth, the elimination diet has become a religion instead of a tool to get us back to being able to eat more foods.
As more people strain already precarious relationships with food and the media is oblivious to food sensitivities being symptoms, not root causes, I wanted to share an air clearing Insatiable podcast on this subject from clinical nutritionist Jen Fugo.
Jen discusses the root causes of food sensitivities, why she rarely has her clients spend money on food sensitivity testing, and the foundational steps to do before deciding if you even need an elimination diet (because they are a lot of work).
