Currently I am eating the following:
meats (everything except chicken--allergy), bok choy, carrots, chives/green onion (tops only), olive oil, coconut oil, spaghetti squash (I might tolerate this...waiting to see), lettuce, berries (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry), carrot juice, green tea
That's all I can stomach at the moment (otherwise, I trigger ankylosing spondylitis autoimmune condition and GI symptoms). No broth since that includes lots of onions. Anyone else been in these shoes? If so, I'd love to know what other foods I might be able to add since I'm currently 5'11" and down to 110 lbs (again). :(
Informationally, you can make broths with no onions at all -- in fact, with no SEASONINGS at all -- just bones simmered in water. You can season as you can tolerate, but no reason to eschew broths just to avoid onions.
I was on a very restrictive diet for a few months (similar to yours as you can see on my blog). By using homemade bone broth and controlling my symptoms for a few months, I was able to increase my food tolerance. I could barely eat 1/2 cup of only a few specific vegetables at first. NOw I can eat almost any vegetables in larger amounts!
Healing takes time, but I really encourage you to do homemade bone broth. Probiotics and fermented cod liver oil could also help.
In the meantime, try increasing your calorie intake by adding safe fats. You should tolerate them fine if you introduce them gradually. Your best options are coconut oil, ghee (and eventually butter if you tolerate it well), olive oil, avocado oil and homemade mayonnaise made with these healthy fats. Add lots of these fats each time your eat to get enough calories and put on some weight. ;)
Why are you doing zero starch? And what are your primary GI symptoms?
Everyone is different in terms of what they can tolerate. I don't have your auto-immune condition so I don't know the protocol for it, but I do have IBS. Some other foods I find tolerable: - citrus fruits, bananas - white rice - spinach (every day I eat a big spinach salad with tomato, cucumber, avocado, berries, toated pumpkin seeds and a protein source) - bone broth made without onions, just herbs - carrots, beets - fish - eggs (although I am thinking they might be gassy for me), bacon - small quantities of nuts - some fermented veg (pickles) - kefir, plain yoghurt
You're not actually supposed to stay on a restrictive autoimmune/anti-allergenic diet for the rest of your life. Only until your condition gets better and your body can tolerate those foods in small amounts.
Hi, not sure if my answer is going to be helpful but...
I discovered I cannot eat RAW veggies but steamed - fine. Try STEAMED onions and other steamed things:
beets (I bake them)
TRY STEAMING, really!
Have you looked into GAPS, and specifically a GAPS practitioner in your area? You are on a modified GAPS type diet, and GAPS might provide a structure for adding in additional foods, probiotics, fermented vegetables, and such. Have you tried fermented carrots?
Bone broth is going to be the most helpful for you. I dont ever use vegetables in my broths (bones and filtered water only), but I do make soups out of them with whatever vegetables.
I have your same condition and am nightshade free, nut free, coconut free(intolerance). After a year of doing my own rotation/elimination diet, i took the alcat food intolerance test, and its been helpful. I still dont do well with starch but i am getting better. I empathize b/c its terribly frustrating
