I know there are a few people who said that they would be interested to hear how the elimination diet is going. Silly people!
It is a full week in and I do have fewer itchy-spots than I did a week ago. Some of the remaining spots are no longer itchy and aren't as red. There don't seem to be any new ones. This is a good start, but a few bits are still as itchy as all get out and are driving me nuts (and as I've not been sleeping well they have been keeping me from going back to sleep once I've woken).
So it is still within what I would consider 'normal' parameters.
How long should it take for there to be a significant difference? The book suggests 'a few weeks'.
There could be some good news in this. It might not be a food allergy. I could eat what I wanted. That would be so much better than the alternative.
The only problem then is WHAT IS CAUSING THEM!!!!!?????
How many weeks should I continue with the elimination diet before giving up?
... Approximately 2 or 3?
... Approximately None and bring on the cheesecake!
