It has been estimated that over 75% of the US population have hidden food allergies which may be a contributing cause to the obesity epidemic. The purpose of the comparison, study was to compare changes from removing food allergens (alone) versus food allergen elimination combined with proven multi-discipline protocols for obesity reduction. METHODS: Seventeen subjects had food allergen identification performed (leukocyte reactions, ALCAT tests) and these foods were eliminated. Ten subjects chose to also employ proven Combined Treatment protocols (Eating natural foods 5/day in “Single-portion” sizes and performing brief “Aerobic-surge” exercises 5/day). The duration of this study was 90 days. RESULTS: There was a significant change in weight for all subjects (P < 0.0001) and there was also a statistically significant difference between groups (P < 0.0001). In comparison, the Combined Treatment showed a 75% greater weight loss (-12.4Kg), 80% greater fat percentage reduction (-5.4%), and 70% greater BMI reduction (3.6). CONCLUSION: Food allergen elimination was beneficial for obesity reduction in this comparison study and use of food allergen elimination with therapeutic protocols was even more effective.
