Five things to expect on the Autoimmune Protocol

The prospect of cutting out so many foods doesn’t exactly make the AIP the most exciting or inviting diet to try. The difficulties of any diet can be discouraging but the list of ‘don’t eats’ seems so ridiculously long on this protocol that anyone who has never adhered to any such restrictions might feel a little terrified at the idea of not eating grains. You truly believe that you’re going to starve.

For me, getting started wasn’t too difficult but it wasn’t plain sailing either. To begin with I totally dismissed the idea that I wasn’t even allowed to eat homemade bio yoghurt, which is necessary to the similar(ish) Specific Carbohydrate Diet that I had experimented with for a month beforehand. After some serious reading I soon accepted how real the science behind the AIP is and how religiously you must follow it.

Not only are they excluded from the AIP, they’re also not considered to be Paleo.
