Your link was really helpful and many things I initially read from the protocol made more sense after reading the strict diet.
I have tried to obey to the diet, but had a few fallbacks by eating a non-organic chicken, sardines and greek yoghurt. It mostly overcame me when I couldn’t fall asleep until early in the morning because of hunger and argued that I had (mistakenly) bought the products anyway 🙁
The candida overgrowth on my skin has now disappeared to 95% and the swelling on my skin is less as well, both has motivated me to keep going on without any cheating. So since yesterday I’m strictly sticking to organic eggs and green vegies.
However, I had Jalapenos yesterday and today with my salad and had a quite a hefty reaction, which I only had from the non-organic chicken before. I will not eat the Jalapenos or non-organic chicken again, but I’m very surprised since they were on the allowed list of foods. Is it because I’m perhaps generally allergic to it, irrespective of the fact that it does not feed the candida?
The reason why I find it so hard to just stick to eggs and green veggies is that I feel very weak all the tie and have a permanent huge appetite even after just eating as the diet doesn’t feel “satisfying”. My diet looks now as follows: Mornings: breakfast of 5 cooked eggs; Lunch: Salad of lettuces, olives, radish, cucumbers, green pepper and olive oil; Dinner: 5 scrambled eggs, brocolli, cauliflower, onions and garlic.
When I get up from lying or sitting I always feel dizzy and sometimes I even have to sit back again. I reduced my work outs from 6x a week to 2-3 times (and 1/3 of intensity), as it is much more exhausting and I feel weak for days.
I have a few questions and was hoping you could help me out:
I) Given that I’m now 13 days on the strict diet, the last two days without cheating (sometimes products only allowed later in the diet), would the following plan be good?:
1) Another week absolutely cheat-free on eggs and vegies
2) Week 2: a) add coconut oil as antifungal; b) add the first vitamin; c) start with Kefir; d) try first new food item such as coconut flour
3) Week 3: try unsweetened greek yoghurt
II) I will in a few weeks work 90-100h/week again, and I fear that I will definitely need more calories. What would be the best to do? Eating more coconut oil and greek joghurt?
III) After reading all the info, I’m still slightly confused when I can introduce brown rice, oat bran (not only flour), crisp bread, and almond / hazelnut milk. Could you shed some light on this? I know it depends on your state, but is it something you can introduce with coconut milk 4 months into the diet or even later.
By reading this again, it all sounds like I’m a greedy undisciplined eating monster. I’m actually very disciplined and did bodybuilding until I started the fast. After losing 6kg of muscles I’m now a lightweight of 69kg. So please don’t think of me as being undisciplined or not motivated enough. It’s just a very tough cut I’m making to eating a lot to grow to now eating almost nothing with substance.
Thanks again for all your help. I can’t say how much I appreciate it.
