Elimination Diet Concerns


I think I have some undiagnosed food sensitivities/intolerances/allergies so I'm partaking in an elimination diet. In the diet you eliminate all common food allergens plus any other suspected triggers for 3 weeks so the toxins flush out of your system entirely. Then, you reintroduce one allergen at a time, testing your reaction. If it makes you sick, you continue omitting that food from your diet - probably permanently.

I don't want to keep repeating the 3 week cleanse + testing period thing so I intend to be pretty restrictive but I don't know if I'm thinking about cutting out too much in one go:

Dairy (I'm intolerant)
Gluten (I'm allergic)
High Lectin Foods
Meat & Seafood (I'm a vegetarian for moral reasons so nothing of this sort has been part of my diet for awhile)
Nuts & Seeds

So, for the 3 week period I could only consume:
Romaine Lettuce
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Himalayan Sea Salt
Vitamin D Supplement

...and I'm just not sure that's enough to healthily sustain a person - even for just that amount of time. If not, I need to do more than one cycle

What do you guys think? Any two cents appreciated!

That's an awful lot to eliminate from the diet all in one go. Have you seen your doctor with your concerns and further advice?

What are your symptoms that you think you have further food intolerances?

Pasta makes me bloat for sure and if I have take away pizza I find I suffer IBS, since dieting/eating healthy I don't suffer it much at all really! x
