My Autoimmune Protocol Diet Experiement
What is the AutoImmune Protocol Diet?
The Autoimmune Protocol (or AIP) Diet is like the Paleo diet but more restrictive. I have not been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, but I do have multiple food intolerances, so clearly something is not functioning as it should.
Why are your trying it?
- To further identify any foods (in addition to gluten, dairy, and say) that I’m intolerant to.
- To (at least temporarily) break my addiction to sugar and caffeine.
- To decrease my symptoms and get to a better baseline.
When are you doing it?
I started on Sunday April 16th and will be doing it for 21 days.
Where can I follow along?
You can stayed tuned to my daily progress on my Instastories, and you can check out my weekly updates every Wednesday on my blog.
