For this diet I will start by eliminating all foods not allowed for the Paleo and AIP diet for 60 days. I will start on January 2, 2017 and follow the strict elimination AIP diet until March 2, 2017. On March 2, I will begin reintroducing foods not allowed on AIP one at a time, keeping careful notes about how each food makes me feel.
