Once symptoms are controlled and having completed the initial Elimination Stage, it is time to begin Phase 2 of the diet, Reintroduction. This is an exciting time as this is where the real learning begins. As you being to systematically reintroduce foods with the help of your dietitian, this will be when you are able to determine which ‘trigger’ foods are contributing to your symptoms.
Servings sizes become very important in the reintroduction phase as individuals have varying tolerance levels to different foods. It is likely that you will find a range of foods that can be reintroduced to your diet without experiencing symptoms. This is particularly helpful as it allows for a broader range of meal options, which in turn leads to a greater likelihood of maintaining symptom control over the longer term.
