Two Elimination Diets I've Tried

Hey y'all! A lot of us are talking about nutrition and health this March and I wanted to share two different ways I've tried an elimination diet for my migraines. One diet was through a naturopath and the other was through a book.

With the naturopathic doctor, I eliminated: wheat, dairy, nuts, soy, pickled and fermented foods, citrus, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, MSG, artificial sweeteners, etc.

The book I read was called, "The Whole 30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom," by Melissa Hartwig and Dallas Hartwig. It's similar to a Paleo Diet but is more centered on general health than weight loss and has a few key differences such as no added sugars. You can read more about it on their website: whole30.com.

I would love to hear about any kind of diet you've tried for migraine. Leave me a note in the comments!
