DAY 19 – FOOD RE-INTRODUCTION

“Re-Introduction” Phase                               food-intolerance.pdf

To begin the “Re-Introduction Phase”, start by consuming one “new food” on day 1 of your  trial. Begin with the food you previously ate most frequently and really miss. In most cases, the best place to start is with one of the “Big 5” offenders such as: Wheat, Dairy, Corn, Soy and Egg. Eggs are an especially good place to start as they are least likely to react and are a good source of nutrition and satisfaction.  Eat the trial food 2-3 times during that day and then do not eat it again for at least 48 hours, ideally 72 hours or 3 days. You should now be back on your “Baseline Diet”. If you have a reaction to the food during the next 48 hours, record it on your “Food Experience Journal” (p. 30 of your Post-Purification booklet) and do not eat it again for at least 3-6 months. If you are uncertain whether you had a reaction, re-test that food after the 72 hours. It is very helpful to create a chart or spreadsheet of your offending foods and the reactions you experienced for future reference.

 

Introduce a new/suspect food every 72 hours (3 days) and chart your progress or reactions

accordingly.

 

A Note on Reactions

If you have a reaction or symptoms occur, record it in your “Food Experience Journal”, along with the day and time. Contact the office as soon as you can and explain your symptoms to Dr. Roles or Lisa, along with how many hours/days it took to react after eating that new food.  By considering the timing of the introduction of the new food, Dr. Roles will likely be able to tell you which of the new foods you ate is suspicious.

 

As an example, let’s say you started eating one new food every three days and after day 7 you began to get abdominal cramps 6 hours after eating. The most likely foods to be suspicious of are milk, cheese, gluten, nuts, apples, coffee and pork. Dr. Roles would be able to help you determine which, if any of these, is the culprit. 

 

Or say you suddenly experienced a migraine 12 hours after eating. Highly suspicious foods would be chocolate, coffee, soy, corn, nuts, cola and foods containing MSG. Again, Dr. Roles is there to help you in determining which if these is most likely affecting you. 

 

Remember, the key to successfully identifying the culprit is maintaining good records of your re-introduction. It is always best to work closely with Dr. Roles in performing this “Elimination/Reintroduction” trial. Guidance from Dr. Roles can increase results. Hang in there with this important program – the results can change your life!

HAVE THE IDEA?  Keep this pattern the same until you have tested all the foods you would like to possibly eat in the future.  If you have no reaction to a food, it is ok to eat that food again, but, remember, if you have the desire to lose more weight, you should continue to remain off the wheat and dairy.  (Use almond or rice milk in place of cow’s milk.  Goat yogurt is also a good choice)  Eggs are great if you do not react to them.
