I hope this to be the first day of a better healthier me. To date, I am feeling very nervous about this whole diet and fear I may starve to death. I LOVE food. I am a foodie to the 10th degree and enjoy cooking and eating the best of everything. Needless to say, the prospect of this Oh SO restrictive diet is not exciting me and I already do not know what to eat. I know there seems to be a fair amount of things to eat, however flavourless they may be BUT!!!!! I live way up in Northern Canada where buying organic meat is not an option and most of the foods listed are not available and the selection of veggies is limited. This will be trying!
I have been suffering from candida for over 3 years now following an exaggerated treatment of drugs my doctor prescribed to me to treat the Chlamydia I contracted from my then cheating boyfriend!!! As if that wasn’t bad enough, as a result of the treatment I began getting very sick! Yeast Infections, aggravated IBS, inability to keep food down,…which all began the moment I started the treatment.
For the past 3 years I have been visiting doctors with a list of new and developing symptoms. Doctors would just attribute them to my already existing health conditions hypothyroidism and IBS. No matter how much I insisted that these symptoms are different from any I have ever experienced in the past.
So now I am on this diet and it’s been one whole day and I am hungry and not sure that I can keep with this…..meat, plain yogurt, eggs, veggies + some nuts = 🙁
PLEASE let me know if there is anything that I can eat that may be somewhat tasty! I heard you can eat sourdough, homemade tomato sauce and hard cheese such as parmesan? Is this TRUE? Also, I am a fruit addict. Are there any I can eat?
Also, how will I know when I can start adding food????
To combat an intestinal fungal overgrowth, if it is your case, the diet is very important. Try to do your best following a restrictive anticandida diet. Believe it or not, the fungus can survive with the diet, and with the diet and antifungals in many cases. The success of this treatment is based in discipline and time. It requires time and an strong perseverance attacking and debilitating the fungus.
