I’m not an expert by any means, but I have been following the Body Ecology Diet for about nine weeks {as well as most of the protocol I’ve found here in the forum regarding foods, antifungals and probiotics}.

BED has worked well for in conjunction with the protocol from the forum. I especially love the young green Thai coconut kefir and cheese. I’ve made it every week I’ve been on the diet. I did make the first two batches from the mature coconuts, and it’s very different from the young green coconuts in taste. I believe since it was cultured, though, that it was still beneficial as I experienced die off symptoms from adding those cultures to my daily routine before I added any antifungals aside from coconut oil.

My skin has improved drastically while on the diet — I don’t know if I can attribute that solely to the coconut kefir, but I’m sure it helps. And also, she’s right about it curbing the sugar cravings pretty well.

What I like about BED specifically:
*Eating until 80 percent full so as to give room for digestion
*The 80/20 rule for veggies to protein/seed-like grain. I like this because it really helped to heal my poor irritated gut and gives my digestive tract a break from so much heavy digestion with animal protein and such. Although, when I’m going through a cycle of cleansing I definitely eat more of a 50/50 ratio because I desperately need the protein energy.
*Coconut Kefir and cheese
*The principle of uniqueness

Does this help at all?

Also, the protocol here allows for the seed-like grains and some flours like coconut, teft and almond as test foods to reintroduce slowly as the weeks progress.
