AIP Bloggers

It’s hard for me to keep up with everything that goes on in the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) blogging world, even within a single day. Because AIP bloggers are international, they kind of form a hive mind. One that never sleeps~. It’s a hive mind that’s tackling the radical challenge of reversing autoimmune through diet and lifestyle. I’m a bit of an interloper, as I don’t have an autoimmune condition myself, but they’ve accepted me anyway. We’re a virtual community, so most of us have never met in person, but Mickey Trescott’s recent book tour has brought constellations of bloggers members together, including in Vancouver last Monday.

What does it stand for? Why on earth Annabel are you eliminating so many foods from your diet? Please explain! Over the last few months as I embarked on the autoimmune protocol elimination diet quite a few people have asked me for a bit more information about what it actually is. Whilst there are many others who have written excellent explanations about it, I’d like, in this post to explain what I know about it, why do it etc. What is the AIP? Essentially the autoimmune protocol (AIP) is a form of elimination diet that is designed to reduce inflammation in your system, and in particular in your gut.

An auto-immune condition occurs when your immune system attacks itself because it loses the ability to differentiate between which proteins belong in your body and which ones don’t. The AIP diet isn’t designed to ‘cure’ autoimmune disease but to relieve from the many symptoms. So how do you do it? What to cut out? Here is what needs to go: AIP Lifestyle - Paleo Living for Autoimmune Disease. My Experience with the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. “I wish for you a lifetime of eggs.” ~ Colleen Michaels Where I Started I shared part one of my story back in January when I started this blog.

My Experience with the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol

I talked about the onset of rheumatoid arthritis, my choice of the GAPS diet for dietary healing, and the results of that diet, which were profound. But after 5 months on GAPS, I plateaued in my progress, so I decided to try the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). It’s now 9 months later, and here are the results: Food Reintroduction Results The AIP is an elimination diet, where you avoid certain foods for a minimum of 30 days and then reintroduce them, one at a time, to test for food intolerance.

Eggs: I reintroduced egg yolks first, and then whole eggs. Emotional Experience When I started AIP, it was hard. The reintroduction phase ended up being an emotional rollercoaster. I read an interview with Michael J. “There’s an idea I came across a few years ago that I love. What Symptoms Remain? I’ve come a long way, baby.

Calorie counting is not encouraged, neither is portion control. 2- Eat unlimited amounts of saturated fats like coconut oil and butter or clarified butter. Beef tallow, lard and duck fat are also good, but only if they come from healthy and well-treated animals. Beef or lamb tallow is a better choice than lamb or duck fat. Olive, avocado and macadamia oil are also good fats to use in salads and to drizzle over food, but not for cooking 3- Eat generous amounts of animal protein. 4- Eat good amounts of fresh or frozen vegetables either cooked or raw and served with fat. 5- Eat low to moderate amounts of fruits and nuts.
