I’ve had a relapse too.
After almost two months on the diet being really strict with myself and starting to see some results, I found out from Able’s allowed food list that I should not have been eating red peppers, tomatoes or carrots. I had removed all cooked carrots as I knew that their glycaemic index was much higher once cooked but had been adding a little raw carrot to salads.
Unfortunately this new information sent me in a spiral of both disappointment and utter dispair. I felt like all the time cleansing and working hard at such a restrictive diet had been in vain. So I lapsed. I had a ‘normal Sandwhich, grains for a few days and a cream doughnut out of pure rebellion.
I think I experienced this because I feel so alone in this. Nobody I know understands or has heard of the condition. My friends are getting a bit upset I can’t join them for drinks at the weekend or go out to a restaurant because I can’t eat anything on the menu.
I know I need to start again, my bloating came back with gusto and my brain fog got worse again.
My question is though, do I need to do another cleanse and start from the beginning or can I just start with the candida diet proper?
It is good to know however that you guys fully understand what I’m going through so thanks so much for the time and effort you put into reading and responding to queries!
