Plant-Based & Whole Food Diets

So I'm whole food plant-based (WFPB) I do eat honey and after the worst month of migraine (8 days this month migraine free), I'm starting the elimination diet. These foods I am currently eating daily! Has anyone done this diet whilst being vegan?

  1. Hi AnnaHG! While you are waiting for someone from the community to share their experience, I wanted to share that our contributor @Kyky Knight has! Here are a couple articles she has written: https://migraine.com/living-migraine/disordered-eating/ and https://migraine.com/blog/nutrition-intervention-migraines-new-study-indicates-elimination-diet-may-work/. I hope this is helpful! ~Melanie (team member)

    1. Hi Luna, Thank you for your reply. I have had a massive reduction in my monthly migraine (currently only 6 this month!) I'm on the elimination diet that's recommended on this website. I'm sorry it didn't help find your triggers. So far I've only added back seeds. Lots of love. ❤

  2. I am WFPB and did an elimination diet a few years back. I followed the recommendations of the elimination diet. I ate the food suggestions that were easily available and not expensive. It told how long to stay off then how to add food items back. When I click on "elimination diet" in your question it did not go to an elimination diet so don't know what one you are referring to. The diet does take a while to do because of adding back food items one at a time to see what specifically affects you. I did not find any food triggers.

  3. I know my triggers it just isn't the food I eat. WFPB cuts out a lot of processed food so that leaves out a lot of chemicals that are in so much of what passes for food. Sometimes I see some packaged food that looks good but not after reading the ingredient list. Am glad you are finding some answers.
    Courage.
