    I'm doing a food intolerance diet from a dietitian and was wondering once I do the 2 week plan and start to introduce different foods how long before I start to feel the benefits of feeling better with more energy?

    With exclusion diets, often you feel the positive effects after a few weeks, but it can take up to 4-6 weeks to feel better once you have excluded all the foods that may upset your gastro-intestinal tract. Once you slowly start to re-introduce each food group separately, within 2 weeks you should know if this food group will not be tolerated and then with the supervision of your dietitian or doctor, you should cease this food group again. Then you will try re-introducing another new food group and see how you feel. Once you find out exactly which food groups you need to avoid eating in the long-term, you should feel better, have more energy, and experience less gut upset. See your GP or dietitian for ongoing support and questions.
