How does one start an elimination diet for food allergies...I was considering rice fruit and vegetables for 1 week?

Best to get checked: New development of food allergies at age 64 is unusual, so your desire to restrict diet, while based on good science, may be an incorrect approach for you. Effective diet exclusions pick one food group to drop (like lactose, gluten), assess response, then move on to another food group. I suggest first you discuss your symptoms & concerns with your doctor & pursue appropriate evaluation instead. ...Read more

Doctor suggested elimination diet to see if symptoms caused by food allergies. Can I eat potatoes on diet? What is your opinion on this form of action?

This is a good way: To see if any of your foods are causing your symptoms. You should start by eating what you would normally eat, but eliminate one food for about 1 week and see if the symptoms go away. If not, move on to eliminating a 2nd food...and so on. Potatoes are generally not very allergenic, depending on how they are cooked and what else is added to them. You can do the same trial with them. ...Read more
