Embarking on an elimination diet is a great way to let your body recharge by cutting out processed foods (like refined carbs and sugar) and items that the body commonly shows sensitivities to (like gluten or dairy). Doing so should help you feel more energized and less bloated. If you can, we recommend cutting out sugar, gluten, alcohol, dairy, caffeine, soy, and factory-farmed meat for a period of two to four weeks, and then reintroducing each group back one at a time to note changes. Curious to know how these changes might affect your body? Take a look at some first-person accounts of following an elimination diet.
