If you cheat or get less strict, it should only typically be a light step in the wrong direction and not the apocalypse.
So if you eat your rice 1x per week or potato 1x per week, this should not be something to spend your time and energy fretting about…you should be more concerned about taking the correct supplements for your symptoms or path towards a cure.
This is the way I am approaching it. I am not going with a strict diet. I am being careful what I eat and not do anything in excess. Those things I do eat that may be considered harmful by some (such as fruits), I am choosing the lowest sugar and healthiest ones and limiting my consumption of them… but not cutting them out. Those fruits still have the nutrients necessary to fight this battle. I take my supplements, I take things like biotin, I suffer through the horrible taste of fresh garlic (and the burning which was quite a shocker), nystatin, etc. I am not eating junk food of any type though. Whatever I put in my mouth has to have some value. Maybe my approach is not correct or maybe it is. Maybe it slows down progress but it is comfortable for me and guarantees I am less likely to completely blow my diet (not really diet but focused consumption). Given the diets seem to be largely speculation, my approach seems reasonable to me.
P.S. As soon as I can get probiotics, I will take those too.
