Once you’ve gone your 23 days, you’ll slowly start bringing food back into your diet.
On day 24, pick one thing you eliminated, like gluten, dairy, OR eggs – just ONE, and reintroduce it back into your diet.
Over the next 48 hours, see how you feel. No reaction? Eat it again to see how you feel. Depending on how your body reacts, it’s up to you whether or not you want to reincorporate that food back into your diet regularly.
Slowly reintroduce one food group back into your diet, waiting several days in between so you can quickly identify any that cause adverse symptoms.
Throughout the diet and the reintroduction process, notice how you feel. Check back on your list of initial symptoms (from head to toe) that you made at the start. Does your skin look more clear? Is your belly flatter? Do you feel like you have more energy?
The key to this diet is to get really in tune with your body, monitor everything you can (sleep mood, energy, digestion, triggers, bowel habits, etc). When you notice a reaction in your body, jot it down in a notebook or on your phone – take note of what you ate that day and what the symptoms are.
The process isn’t complicated – it just takes a little getting used to and a lot of planning.
