AIP Diet (Autoimmune Protocol Diet)

AIP Diet (Autoimmune Protocol Diet)

I’m just starting the AIP diet. It’s similar to the Paleo diet but more restrictive. I’m just curious if anyone has tried it and had success with it. Thank you ahead of time for any information.

Debra, everyone’s different so I don’t know for sure. It’s just what happened to Elise and I. Not sure about vitamins. Just make sure you eat one or two whole grains a day.💞

I had to look this up as I have never heard of it. The autoimmune protocol diet has been attributed to Loren Cordain, PhD, a scientist who discovered that certain foods can sometimes trigger inflammation in people with autoimmune disease. Author Robb Wolf outlined the autoimmune protocol in his book, The Paleo Solution, introducing it as an elimination diet. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD, (also known as The Paleo Mom) became interested in the autoimmune protocol, researched the science behind it, and wrote about it in her book, The Paleo Approach. Dr. Ballantyne is considered a leading expert on the autoimmune protocol.

Oh gosh I can’t imagine anything more restrictive than Paleo. I lost quite a bit of weight. But it wasn’t good for me going off of most grains. Elise and I both started having hair loss. We’re all different and you may not have that side effect. Good luck 💗
