Using the Elimination Diet with Tom Malterre
Gluten, dairy, nuts…many of us have problems with certain foods we eat. But how do you identify which foods are the issue, and how do you still get all the key nutrients you need to nourish your body? In this week’s episode of Be HEALTHistic, Dr. Drew Sinatra welcomes his friend and certified nutritionist Tom Malterre to talk about nutrient deficiencies, allergic reactions to the foods you’re consuming, and how you can use the elimination diet to help identify ANY food sensitivities you may have.

He shares the top foods that are hardest to break down (gluten, dairy, eggs) and how undigested food proteins sneak into the immune system, creating inflammation and unpleasant symptoms. Then, Tom shares details about the elimination diet — what to eliminate and how, how long the process takes, how to re-introduce foods — and how the ultimate goal is to discover which foods make you feel like a rock star, versus the foods that hold you back.
