I suspect that eating meat daily will be alright for me as well no doubt I desire so damn much but im scared to because the warning I have read. So I am going to go from 3 days a week to 4 and so on to see if it is effecting me.
could I ask, why buffalo is ok but not say grass fed organic beef?
This is just a suggestion, and one I would follow myself were I still on the diet, but when you’re taking into account the foods that another person is eating without problems, you might want to consider where their position is in the treatment, and if they fail to mention this, maybe ask them. For example, when Raster refers to eating 5 ½ pounds of meat a week, these are, supposedly, the words of someone who does not have a Candida infestation; of course this is an assumption due to his post on March 27, “It took me 9 months to recover from candida and cure myself.” So anyone with a Candida infestation should not follow Raster’s present protocol since he apparently doesn’t have a Candida infestation, and therefore he wouldn’t receive the same reactions that others may experience from the foods and amounts he eats. The point is, maybe Raster can eat 5 ½ pounds of meat a week because he doesn’t have the same degree of infestation that you or someone else may have.
Concerning buffalo vs. beef; I think by now we all know that the problem with animal protein is the ammonia that’s released during the protein breakdown. I posted this several months ago, “All living animals have ammonia in their bodies, including humans. So when it comes to ammonia, the type of animal doesn’t matter as much as the amount of protein that the meat contains per serving.” Buffalo contains less fat than beef; less fat means more protein per ounce.
Thanks for responding Able and I understand where you are coming from. I have been following both of you and rasters post and aproach and I find the strict diet to hard for me and I like Rasters aproach even though this may result in a longer period of recovery. when I express my view I always try to remember to add that the safest and best rout to curing candida is through your protocol. I do not mean to conflict with your advice but only work within my means. I am weak willed and am proud of what I have accomplished so far even with my mistakes. I have supressed candida enough that one of my major issues has been resolved.
Being weak willed should not be a reason to look down on someone. Not saying you are but I hope the fact that I can not adhere to the diet as you outlined 100% does not change your desire to help me and others like me. Everyone is built different.
Really I have not strayed to far from the path per say. Tomatoes, quinoa, blueberries being the only things I am having outside of your diet as of now.
The meat, well I like where Raster is in his diet. I will be happy to be where he is at even if that means I still have infestation. I believe your the only one I know of on these forums that has truely cured candida but I also understand your current diet, as good as it is, is stil strict compared to your average American. So my aproach is different and may take me longer to get to the happy place than it should. I just want to test and add as many foods as I can get away with because raw veggies as a primary diet really makes me ill just thinking about it. I hope you do not think less of me because of this. I do have a tremendous amount of respect for you and what you do for folks here. It could be 6 months from now I am kicking myself for not following your diet from the beginning. will you still help me? Am I a lost cause?
On another subject. I hope you decide to release your diet again. I know defending it bothers you but really, even with your note, folks are going to request it and not follow it completely and in the end you will be defending it or ignoring folks. We all need help, even the weak willed. So how can a person like you help those that will not follow your sound advice? should you ignore them or work with them anyways…. I respect your decisions regardless its afterall your time.
