Maybe you are terrified of going starving on the elimination diet and so you are nervous about starting…
I want you to know that the elimination diet is NOT about starvation. Yes, what you eat will look a little different – after all, what’s on your plate now has you looking for solutions to your pain.
But if you are hungry, eat! Still hungry? Eat more! The good news is your blood sugar will begin to normalize and your cravings will magically disappear so you won’t actually be hungry forever.
I am giving away one of the recipes in my new 30-Day Elimination Diet Meal Plan Program for you to try out. It is a great example of how to eat with the foods you are given as well as with simplicity and flavour. This side dish can be paired with hemp hearts, beans, wild salmon or organic turkey, lamb or chicken to be a complete meal.
The program is designed to remove the uncertainty and overwhelm surrounding an elimination diet so that you can:
> Create a life that doesn’t stress the focus of every single bite you eat because you will know exactly what works for your body
> Continually add in a greater variety of foods because you’ve learned the steps on how to do so
> Go out to eat because you understand how to make empowered choices
> Never follow another restrictive diet or protocol again in your life (if that’s what you choose) because you have all the answers you need
