Haha it's like hmm...start now and I can't have cake on my birthday...guess I'll have to wait!
M2G, I think you're thinking of fad diets lol. The elimination diet initially takes out all food that is known to cause allergic reactions and "cleanse" for two weeks, then slowly add in potential problem foods to determine whether or not you have an unknown allergy. A lot of people with autoimmune disorders (like me) go on it and have a lot of success finding food allergies that trigger other reactions, such as arthritis, skin rashes, etc. The reason I was concerned about weight loss is that I DON'T want to lose any! Hahaha
