This is what I would tell people I have to tell. I’ve told my family, my fiance, and one friend because the rest wouldnt understand. I lost 3 stone in weight over a few years before this diet, because i needed to and on the diet i’ve lost another stone and if i were to say its a specific diet of veg and very little carbs, word would spread like wild fire that i’ve been crash dieting, especially at work. People can be very cruel. But i’m not stick thin, just healthy now.
Generally i’m keeping quiet and not saying anything because the last thing I want people to know is its for yeast infections. The one friend I told knows exactly why but she’s different and open minded. My family think its a bit strange and I believe my mum has candida, worse than me but she’d never be able to cope with the die off like I had. My fiance is fully supportive and understands completely. Unfortunately not everyone is like him.
Work is the hardest thing with foods because, working airside at an airport I cant bring liquids into the office and I also try to hide what I eat sometimes because eating plain chicken, or a slice of yellow looking bread (coconut bread) may look strange to people eating big bowls of pasta or massive sandwiches.
I think its all worth it though
