Thanks so much Javizy and Lucylu for your responses!
This last week or so, I haven’t consumed any red meat, I am only eating chicken, turkey and fish. I find that red meat can repeat on me so I think that I may be allergic/intolerant to it, or else I just don’t digest it well. This is the yogurt that I’m eating: http://www.waitrose.com/shop/ProductView-10317-10001-47382-St+Helen%27s+Farm+natural+goats+milk+yogurt I don’t think that there are any added sugars etc and I am intolerant to cow’s dairy so cannot have Greek yogurt. Do you think that this yogurt is acceptable? Kefir and sauerkraut are both something I am yet to get my head around. Javizy – I’m actually based in London as well – Can you recommend anywhere that I could buy either kefir or sauerkraut, or should I try to make my own?
I’m not eating dried fruits or dark chocolate anymore. I’m eating a huge amount of veggies, all from the recommended list on this website. The cravings have almost subsided, but I’m constantly struggling with this hunger, like my stomach feels empty an hour or so after I’ve eaten a good meal, with some meat and lots of veggies (mostly cauliflower, broccoli, avocado, spinach and courgette (zucchini).
Lucylu – I didn’t try a detox, I just went directly into the diet. Are there any recipes for coconut bread without using eggs as I’ve got an intolerance to eggs (they upset my stomach and also cause really bad eczema on my face)? I tried buckwheat a week or so ago and had an upset stomach the following day so I may also be intolerant to that. I’m eating about 4 meals per day now as well. I will also cut out the nuts for now, am only eating them every couple of days anyway, and about 10-15 nuts (almonds or pecans) at a time as I can really tend to binge and finish the whole bag if I’m not careful with portion sizes.
Thanks so much again to you both for your responses!
