Core & Modified AIP: An Updated AIP Resource Library!

In January, a new option for the elimination phase of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP)  was announced: Modified AIP Elimination. If you are looking for the exact details of which foods are included and avoided in both Core and Modified AIP, don’t miss What is AIP: The Definitive Guide which has been completely updated.

A quick summary of the reasons why Modified AIP was added as an elimination option:

  • Many patients in the AIP medical studies saw results before reaching a full elimination 
  • AIP Certified Coaches reported seeing good results without a full elimination using a modified protocol in their practices
  • Recent elimination diet research indicates that stricter does not always produce better results 
  • Increasing accessibility, affordability, and sustainability can widen the reach and application of AIP

Introducing: An updated Autoimmune Wellness Resource Library

The founding mission here at Autoimmune Wellness has been to provide free resources for anyone who wants to embark on AIP. Since 2012, we’ve been delivering a resource library with food lists, meal plans, and other materials as a part of our AIP Quick Start Guide email series. Since inception, over 200,000 of you have downloaded these materials!

With the 2024 update to the Autoimmune Protocol, it was a prime opportunity to take a look at this resource library and give it a comprehensive update. Not only have all of the prior resources been edited and redesigned, but new materials have been added for the new Modified AIP elimination (including dedicated food lists, a meal plan, and reintroduction materials). 

Here is a list of what is included in the updated Autoimmune Wellness Resource Library:

  • AIP Quick-Start Guide 
  • Core AIP Foods to Include 
  • Core AIP Foods to Avoid
  • Modified AIP Foods to Include (NEW!)

  • Modified AIP Meal Plan & Shopping List (NEW!)
  • AIP Reintroduction Guide
  • Core AIP Reintroduction Stages
  • Modified AIP Reintroduction Stages (NEW!)
  • Food Reaction Checklist

All of these materials are presented as beautifully-designed .pdf files that you can read on your computer, e-reader, or other digital device. They can also be printed at home.
