I've been practicing elimination for years, but lemme tell ya, having to avoid wheat AND dairy pretty much eliminates about 90% of the desserts worth eating. Food is one of the joys in life, and having to settle for less tasty substitutes is annoying to say the least. I haven't eaten a sandwich in forever, and having to constantly limit what I can order when we go out to eat is frustrating for me and the people I'm with. "Don't cheat" - yes, simple advice. But when you truly enjoy something, why should there be limits? Is it the elimination or the treatment? I'm leaning towards the treatment. The abstaining from an allergen is only for 24 hours per treatment, and I've abstained for much longer than that. I've been doing about the same amount of cheating as before, so although there's nothing scientific about it, my impression is that my reactions are less severe than usual. The real test will be when I finally finish all the vials and start happily eating the stuff I couldn't before on a regular basis. You don't know how much you miss grilled cheese until you can't eat it!
