I took a full week off, starting last Wed. OMG! What a mistake. I started out moderately with a Cobb Salad. It had three foods I hadn't tested yet. By yesterday, there wasn't anything wrong I hadn't eaten. I woke up Sun. with swollen lips and bad congestion, not to mention the other symptoms. My excuse is that I wasn't home. I should have just gone hungry! This morning, I am a mess! AND, I gained 8 lbs in 7 days. If I didn't really believe in the elimination diet before, I BELIEVE NOW! I ache EVERYWHERE. My eyes were swollen and glued shut. I have enough snot for five or six people. My lips are swollen. I look like I had collagen injections! I have muscle cramping. And on and on and on! DON'T DO IT!!! There ARE food allergies! The problem is, since I went off program, I have no idea what they are! I was testing eggs when I went off course, so now, after going clean again, I will have to retest eggs. I can't believe, after eating totally clean for five weeks, I went so wonky! Well . . . onward!

I start reintroducing foods today. I'm starting with oats. I've really missed my toasted oatmeal! While on elimination, I reacted to bananas. I also used pumpkin pie spice on squash and woke up with hand pain for the first time in weeks. I read the ingredients and found sulfites. This was McCormicks! I then read more spice labels and found that a bunch of others had sulfites. WTH!!! So, apparently, I react to sulfites. I'll test them again later. I'm feeling pretty well after my very restricted diet for three weeks. It hasn't been as bad as expected. I just haven't been able to eat away from the house. My cravings are gone. I haven't been hungry. I've lost nearly 10 lbs. I'd say the experiment has been successful so far. Onward

In case anyone is interested, this is the elimination diet I've been following.
