EP 15: Food Allergies Cause Weight Gain Part 3

In this episode, Dr. Agolli & Dr. Burdette finish the series on how your food allergies can cause weight gain and what you can do to fix it.

They specifically discuss:

  1. How to eliminate food allergies.
  2. How to rotate the foods in your diet.
  3. What supplements you can take to help with the allergies.
  4. How to bring the foods back into your diet.


An elimination diet is a way of finding out which foods you are allergic or sensitive to by avoiding them for a period of time and then reintroducing them one by one. There are different types of elimination diets, such as simple, moderate, or strict, depending on how many foods you need to avoid. Some common foods that may cause allergies or intolerances are dairy, eggs, gluten, soy, nuts, shellfish, beef, and corn.

To get help with an elimination diet, you may want to consult a doctor or a registered dietitian who can guide you through the process and monitor your symptoms. They can also help you plan a balanced and nutritious diet that meets your needs while avoiding the foods that cause problems. You may also want to use a food diary to track what you eat and how you feel each day.
