Elimination diet - an elimination diet is a type of diet that involves removing specific foods from the diet for a specified period of time, and then gradually reintroducing them to determine if they are causing food intolerance or allergy symptoms. Elimination diets are often used to diagnose food allergies and food intolerances, and they can also be used to improve gut health and reduce symptoms of certain medical conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). Elimination diets should be approached with caution, as they can be nutritionally inadequate if certain foods are eliminated for an extended period of time.
