Meat;
Meat should be as fresh as possible, it’s usually better to buy it from the butcher, rather than the cryovac packed meat in the supermarkets as this may be weeks old.
Organic or at least free range will be best. Don’t keep leftovers.
Avoid the skin on chicken and the fat on all meat. If buying mince, ask the butcher for preservative free.

  • lamb

Keep a food diary while you’re on the restricted 2 or so weeks and then when you are re-introducing foods. Don’t start re-introducing foods until your eczema has cleared up.

Re-introducing other foods;
Re-introduce one food only at a time and wait 2 days, if no symptoms you can re-introduce the next. If there are symptoms, stop eating the food and wait until the symptoms have healed. Keep a record of which foods you can tolerate and which ones you can’t.
Histamine levels in food;
Salicylate levels in food;

    Just started this diet. I seem to be very sensitive to touching anything with salicylates in it, like potato skin. Coconut based detergents seem to get me, too. – Merry Christmas ❤ Maggie Lynn
