Dairy products. Butter, cheese, milk, yoghurt or anything containing dairy products, lactose or whey, including sheep’s’ and goats’ milk products.

Gluten grains. Wheat, oats and any others except those on the ‘allowed’ list. These grains can be in bread, pastry, sauces and gravies, pasta, batter, cakes or biscuits.

Stock cubes/powders or gravy/sauce mixes. These should be avoided as they can contain disguised wheat (in the form of hydrolyzed vegetable protein) or yeast. Use miso paste dissolved in hot water and add to the dish but do not boil once the miso is added.

Animal products. Red meat, poultry, eggs.

Stimulants. Sugar, tea, coffee, alcohol, beer, wine. Do not eat sweets or chocolate.

Artificial additives. Colourings, preservatives, ‘instant’ or convenience foods, etc.

Yeast. Yeast extracts, fermented foods, sauces or drinks (except miso or tamari).
This is called a hypo-allergenic diet which is really a misnomer as there is no restriction on the quantity of food you can eat, only on the types. Get organized so that you are well stocked with foods you are allowed and don’t feel deprived. Try to plan to adopt this diet when you have some degree of control over your meals and not too many social events coming up. You may still get good results even if you can only follow it for a week.
For the first few days you may feel worse as your body begins to eliminate toxins and waste products. You may also get withdrawal symptoms from certain stimulants such as tea and coffee. You may feel as if you are coming down with the flu, feel headachy, get diarrhea or aches and pains. But persevere and I can assure you there is light at the end of the tunnel. Most women say they get a feeling of having so much more energy after they have completed the diet.
