Elimination Diets – Podcast Ep. 38


Welcome to the 38th episode of the Living Healthy Podcast, presented by LA Fitness.  

The Elimination Diet is not what it sounds like! It’s not about getting yourself to “go,” but actually about eliminating foods from your diet and slowly re-introducing them one by one. It’s a way to help identify which foods your body is sensitive to.  

We’re sitting down with our registered dietitian, Debbie James, to bring you the information you need to know about this interesting diet! Tune in now to hear all about it.
