The suggestion on avoiding meat is because it releases ammonia in intestine, same as candida. So you make the environment better for candida and add more toxins for your body to get rid of. If you can reduce it that would help you with your treatment. I ate lots of meat at the beginning because I thought I was hungry where in fact I had die-off, but also honestly I didn’t figure out what to eat at first. Now I eat half of chicken breast per week or two chicken legs or same amount of turkey no more per week. On another day in a week I will have one of the approved fish meats, usually baked sardines as they are so inexpensive healthy and easy to make.
As you start the diet and start feeling better (and hungry) you will start to get creative with your meals and then you can ease off the meat for a while.
Remember also to drink a lot of water, as much as you can tolerate. This will help with any die-off you have. At least it helps me a lot. I couldn’t get molybdenum as well.
This is why it’s actually good that you are doing this slowly because if you don’t have access to molybdenum, killing off candida quickly could harm your liver.
