I think it depends which site or book you read. I have two books that say cottage cheese is okay for stage one, infact any cheese matured less than 3 months.
With this diet I have found that somethings affect me more and less than the books say, we are all individuals and I would guess that certain foods will cause different reations to others than they do to me. I think probably due to the severity of the infection.
Caffine is my worst enemy, on week 2 I thought, a cup of Earl Grey can’t hurt, I’ll have just one cup. I paid for it the next day, I felt as if I had been down the pub on an all nighter. I stick to my rooibos now.
