At Integrative Nutrition, our students learn the importance of bio-individuality – the idea that there is no one-size-fits-all diet. As Health Coaches, we empower our clients to discover what works best for them by deconstructing cravings and listening to the clues their body gives them. Fatigue, bloating, skin conditions, migraines, and more can all be signs that your diet isn’t working for you – but where do you start? How do you pinpoint your trigger foods?
Enter – the Elimination Diet.
In this exclusive interview with Integrative Nutrition, visiting teacher Tom Malterre, MS explains what the Elimination Diet is, how it works, why your body is the best lab you have access to, and what signals you should look out for when getting started.
Tom Malterre is a nutritionist with advanced training from the Institute of Functional Medicine and over a decade of clinical experience working with nutrient deficiencies, chemical exposures, and the gut microbiome. He is also the co-author of The Elimination Diet and The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.
