  1. Great post! Thanks, Anna!
    I made all the same mistakes and get, like you experienced success. I reduced my antibodies to almost nothing. I am still on a fairly restricted diet and hoping they go away completely by the time I do additional testing. I agree with ALL of your tips for successfully using the AIP. It was uncanny how closely your journey mirrored mine. I focus on nourishing my body (as opposed to entertaining my mouth!) By eating a nutrient sense diet. I feel like it is sustainable and a great lifelong way to relate to food.

    1. Yes, Cindy! I remember when I first started the diet, I thought it was not sustainable… but then I realized it was only because I was making it so difficult! Thank you for sharing, and I’m so happy to hear it’s worked well for you. 🙂

  2. I’m on my second round of aip elimination (I have eaten fairly close to paleo for 4-5 years) after a bout of hashitoxicosis. Mindset has definitely been tough for me now and during my first try at aip elimination. I’ve had 1-3 aip recipe fails a week for the last month and it’s tough to stay motivated when you spend money and time to get aip recipes in your routine just to have them be complete disasters. This article was a great reminder to assess my mindset and simplify my meal planning. I would love to see any other content you have on how to get better at those things. Plus simple meal ideas etc. Sometimes simple is not so simple especially when you are using Pinterest to find aip recipes. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Carrie, I know how you feel… it is really tough to feel motivated, especially because in order to make foods close to our comfort foods we were used to prior to this diet, it usually requires odd and expensive ingredients and you feel like you only have one chance to get it right! I have noticed that the more you practice and get to know your ingredients and how they cook/bake/etc., the easier it gets. But, ultimately, simplifying meals, especially at the beginning when trying to recover from a flare, is so helpful, so I think you are on the right track. 🙂 We will try to provide more content around this since we still follow a very simple meal plan for our family.
