I am exactly the same!.. i started the diet 6 months ago and have dropped so much weight since, i am now classed as ‘clinically underweight’ on the BMI chart which is quite worrying. I weigh in at just 100 pounds it makes me very self concious but with the diet being SO restictive theres not alot you can do. More recently ive started to introduce some low GI carbs such as brown rice (just half a cup a day) steel cut oats and rye crackers. These i feel are safe to eat in MODERATION. Moderation being the key word there!.. Buckwheat, quoina and amaranth are all safe too. Youll benefit best from soaking them overnight, they are more nutrient dense and much easier to digest.
The mistake i made when trying to gain weight was increasing my fat intake, it seemed to me like the only viable solution. I later found out that fat traps the sugar in the blood and clogs things up inside :S.. so id definatly recommend introducing some low GI carbs, it seems to be working for me! .. a nice bowl of warm steel cut oatmeal in the morning with kefir milk is a great way to start the day! 🙂 YUM!
PS- I personally would stop taking the perscriptive anti fungals. Natural anti fungals on rotation can be just as effective but alot less harmful. I hear diflucan can really damage the liver.
