What is the AIP diet? Experts weigh in on the pros and cons

Here’s what you need to know about controlling autoimmune disease symptoms with this diet.

If you have an autoimmune condition, you might want to give it a try. The elimination phase of the AIP diet can be tough to stick to, though, since you need to avoid a long list of foods. “Many of my patients just don’t see that that kind of discipline is worth the outcome,” Dr. Hylland said.
