Arbitrarily giving up lots of foods disrupts the client’s healthy relationship with food… and causes food anxiety.
A better first step is to let clients see ALL the wide VARIETY of foods they CAN eat… if consumed in a Food Rotation with its recovery period.
Then client starts off with a “safety-net” diet of lots to eat, and rich nutrition… even if Practitioner decides after assessing 2-3 Rotations (well complied with at some 60%), that a Restrictive Diet may be NECESSARY :
But then, the RotationDietPlus Software allows that Restrictive Diet (such as GFCF, SCD, GAPs, PALEO…) to be built onto the already established healthy Rotation Diet HABIT… as well as allows various food limitations step by step, to keep maximum foods in the diet, as opposed to mass guessed-at food eliminations(ie. cutting all statistically common allergens).
In a 2015 study (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4311561/) The authors (Naturopaths), did not put a sustainable “safety net” diet in place, for a 12 year old asthmatic boy (Patient B). Their Protocol directed him to ELIMINATE all his ELISA blood-test-IgG foods, which were, of course, foods he heavily relied on : eggs, milk, cheese, wheat, yeast, citrus, casein and corn.
No, it proved impossible for him and family to comply…even though there was improvement in his asthma, when he was able to comply.
It was not clear if improvement was due to removal of foods, OR simply due to stopping repetitive and frequent intake.
Client and his family bounced from “occasional ingestion of (the) reactive foods”, to a weekly “cheat day” as relief valve, and finally to DAILY consumption of pizza(wheat/cheese), eggs, dairy, citrus “…AT ALMOST EVERY MEAL” : An unhealthy relationship with food.
The naturopaths recommended a return to the earlier pharmacological control of his asthma as client was “unable to comply with…dietary recommendations”. 
A “safety net” Rotation Diet to start 1) shows clients clearly ALL the wide variety of foods they CAN eat…if Rotated; 2) offers lots to eat and, from the start, encourages widening diet, 3) for a relaxed, healthier relationship with food; 4) provides rich and varied nourishment… for depleted nutritional status of chronic illness; 5) widening….guides away from repeat eating of a very few foods. There is NO downside to properly nourishing your client and establishing healthy relationship to food.
