At the moment, Doug, I'm trying to be 100% dairy free. The point of this is as a test to see if some of my weight gain issues are from dietary intolerances. After 6 weeks or so, I expect I'll be asked to add back 1 food group at a time, and see what happens. Since I'm not actively allergic, I'm not worrying about labels that say "may contain a trace of...", but the coconut cream powder has more than just a little in it.
As a veterinarian, we commonly will ask people to put their dogs on a hypoallergenic diet for 6 weeks, to see if some of their itchy skin signs clear up. Often, when I see them at a recheck appt, their dog will still be itching. I ask them about eliminating treats, cat food, food dropped by babies, whatever, and the folks that didn't listen will say "Oh, I thought it didn't matter." So, I'm trying to be good, and practice what I preach, "An elimination diet is just that---an elimination of everything you usually eat!"
I think it's easier with dogs---most of them just eat out of a bag.
