I think that the amount you eat will go down a whole bunch in time. I have no idea how big you are, but even if you are even slightly overweight…expect your body to normalize to the correct weight levels. It sounds like you aren’t, so you’ll probably have to eat more than I eat. Some people lose as much as 5 pds in the first 2 weeks; this sounds very normal from what I’ve heard.
Relating to this; candida really influences the bodies tastebuds, cravings, and food preferences before the diet. After the diet, you become like a totally new person in relation to these cravings. You will need significantly less food for the same amount of energy because the food is no longer feeding the candida; the main user of your bodies energy.
Read able’s post “about the hunger” for more info. For instance, your body will not want sugar nearly as much and other horribly unhealthy foods like deep fried cheese(lol).
I feel that it is safe to eat a bunch of protein with every meal (but not if its 6 meals a day). 3 servings a day is just fine or so. I think in general, buckwheat is a very safe food to eat a bunch of. It can cause some problems for some candida users much like quinoa (in the above post I rave about it, but a week later I quit it because it gave me a bad reaction…now I don’t recommend it). Buckwheat has done wonders for me as a good rice replacement; I think allergic reactions to these two grains vary.
I think its safe to eat eggs 7 days a week. I see no downside to eggs. I just wouldn’t eat 20 eggs a day.
Meats you can have (as far as i’ve seen):
alligator (and other lizard meats; they got it down in the south!)
seafood (not all?)
If you’ve read about whey being bad; then I would go to something else as a replacement.
Do you have any IBS, sleep problems, fatigue, brain fog, allergic reactions? Either way, this diet most likely can heal/cure some/many of your ailments. For me its taken a long time, but I am also a smoker and have been very unhealthy for the last 10 years.
Some/most people notice results immediately, in like less than 2 weeks.
What kind of fasting are you doing? Able had a good post recently about a better cleanse that didn’t involve the clay and psyllium husks; so you may look into that.
I’d also consider consulting a nutritionist if you can afford it. They probably have a better idea of a good diet you should do to get the maximum benefit possible.
