Background: Growing evidence suggests that systemic inflammation and obesity are associated. Lifestyle changes such as dietary modification may be beneficial in reducing obesity-related chronic inflammation and its related disease states. Conversely, inflammation may be exacerbated by food intolerance(s). Therefore, it is important to determine if dietary modifications have an effect on inflammatory markers, body composition or medical symptoms. Objective: The purpose of the study was to determine whether an elimination diet plan, based on ALCAT testing, influenced inflammatory response, body composition and medical symptoms. Conclusions: These results suggest that the elimination of inflammatory foods had a positive impact on SAA, LBM, BMI, and MSQ.
