Breaking The Chains of Restrictive Diets

So, those of you who have followed me for awhile know I’ve been rebelling against restrictive diets over the last couple of months. You just may not know the full reason for my change of direction. And, for those of you new to my blog, I’m afraid you’ve found me during a time of transition. I’m now going to take some time to explain myself, because I’m breaking the chains of restrictive diets.

After almost two years on strict AIP paleo, I was successful in putting my lupus into remission. I went through both the elimination phase and the reintroduction phase of the AIP, over the course of 31 months. Upon reaching remission, I remained on a paleo diet. During this time, I did still experience some psoriasis symptoms and many food intolerances and allergies (or what I was told were allergies). Although I was in remission of my lupus, I still struggled with lots of food reintroduction issues. It was annoying to say the least.
