Weight loss, exercise, diet… These are all things that a lot of people think about, and how could it not be when the preoccupation of a large part of the population has lately become how to gain as little weight and slim body without excess fat.

The problem of weight gain is something that is not solved overnight and needs to be well-informed.

There are various diets that each offer something that are tailored to the individual's needs. Before switching to a diet regimen, you should consult your doctor who will best know if this decision will affect your health.

There is one strange name in the sea of ​​diets, but that is why a diet that is considered effective and appropriate for people with certain medical conditions. What is an anti-allergy diet? It is a diagnostic and therapeutic diet based on the success of many doctors and nutritionists.

The program is designed to be relatively easy to follow and includes instructions to help you identify the food or food group you are allergic to. The whole diet helps you become aware of foods that will help you look and feel better.

Most people have one or more foods that they are allergic to. The reason lies in the body and the digestive system, which cannot digest certain foods.

The symptoms of food sensitivities are different. Usually these are side effects such as heartburn, flatulence and nausea. If side effects occur frequently, more serious conditions such as Chron's disease may occur.

The diet lasts from six to twelve weeks. The diet is divided into two phases: the Food Elimination Phase and the Challenge Phase. The elimination phase lasts about three weeks, and people with digestive problems may have to continue the elimination phase for another three weeks, for a total of six weeks.

During this phase the person will become aware of all those foods to which he is sensitive. These are the most difficult to digest foods. Once symptoms have subsided and foods that cause problems have been eliminated, the gastrointestinal system has had enough time to recover and you can now move on to the challenge phase.

Foods that are less likely to be allergic, such as apples, bananas, carrots, lamb, cherries, honey and rice, should be addressed here.

The diet program should be followed, and your doctor will change and adjust the foods you may intake depending on the need. For six weeks, you will only eat certain foods, then during the challenge you will reintroduce foods from before, one at a time.

Symptoms should be monitored for three days, and if present after the first intake, there is no need to consume food for two consecutive days. As long as the symptoms are present, they should wait until they are removed to move on to another challenge.

While dieting, you should avoid all foods that contain preservatives and additives, and apart from them it would not be good to put spices on the food.

Enrich your diet with beans, lentils and celery. Avoid potatoes, green and red pepper. From fruits, feel free to choose berries, all except strawberries, fruit sauces all containing no sugar and preservatives. Avoid citrus, strawberries, peaches, apricots and dried fruits other than dates.

The list of allowed foods includes brown rice, and avoid products based on white flour. Fish, chicken, turkey and lamb are allowed, and avoid eggs, seafood.

Olive and coconut oil are your choice, while all other oils should be avoided. Spices are allowed sea salt, parsley, fennel, cinnamon. Avoid table salt and all kinds of sweeteners.

It is good to take rice milk, green tea and natural fruit juices from the liquid. Caffeine, alcohol, soy milk and high-sugar fruit juices should be avoided.
