    Soffro di intolleranza al nichel e questa dieta è totalmente sbagliata! Inserire il pomodoro è deleterio! Per esperienza i cibi peggiori sono proprio cioccolata e pomodoro per poi passare a frutta secca … Come frutta il kiwi ha un alto contenuto di Nichel e anche le albicocche!

      La dieta proposta è a basso contenuto di nichel e non totalmente senza nichel (sarebbe impossibile). I pomodori e la frutta secca sono stati inseriti tra gli alimenti “no”, come anche il cacao e tutti i prodotti che lo contengono. I dati sulla frutta sono emersi da un incrocio di diversi studi che hanno testato la tollerabilità di diverse persone. Anche la piccola quantità di pomodoro nella pasta da alcune persone è tollerata. Ovviamente non si tratta di una dieta personalizzata, per cui la tollerabilità individuale va sempre testata di volta in volta. Per questo qui trovi delle indicazioni generali, per una dieta personalizzata è necessario sempre rivolgersi al dietologo o al nutrizionista, che saprà valutare caso per caso.
