Feingold Diet

Feingold Diet: Main Image

Nonfood Factors

In addition to avoiding salicylates in the diet and aspirin, those following the Feingold diet must also avoid synthetic dyes, artificial flavorings, and the preservatives BHT, BHA, and TBHQ. These can be found in cleaning supplies, toiletries, and art supplies.

Is This Diet Vegetarian-Friendly?

Yes. Vegetarians will need to learn the list of salicylate-containing fruits and vegetables, and when it's acceptable to reintroduce these to their diet.

Eating Out

Call ahead to find out what the restaurant offers. Give suggestions of what you can have, instead of what you can’t. The program’s website provides assistance with eating out, including a form letter that lists what a person following the Feingold diet must avoid, as well as suggestions for different types of restaurants. Some of their ideas are:

  • Filet of fish sautéed in olive oil and garlic with lemon
  • Baked potato with real sour cream or butter or steamed broccoli
  • Fresh pears or pineapple for dessert
