As suggested, a list. This is somewhat fluid so it is a time capsule of today. It’s hard to keep so many expensive supplements in supply depending on monthly obligations; one can only do what they can afford. I stock up when I can and try to keep everything going but, some days I’ll double up on one of the “stragglers” and forget to take it another. I always take the multi, though.

NOTE: I had been using RENEW LIFE 30 billion prior for several months and have tried several others including ALIGN. Until listing the TJ’s product I didn’t realize how little it contained. My eye sight has deteriorated with the Candidasis. Though, Do’h! The low amount probably is a part of recent uptick in GI distress issues. Will switch back to RENEW LIFE in short order or perhaps go the PD DSO route.
SPECTRUM Organic Coconut Oil – one heaping table spoon before meals
NATURES BOUNTY Super Greens Nutritional Powder with Probiotics – 2 to 4 scps/day

BRAGGS ACV either as dressing on salads or 4z with h2o
GSE a bunch of drops sometimes everyday
BIOSIL 4 drops at least every other day with ACV/strange taste
Tend to eat burgers 93% lean, turkey burgers or chicken thighs as they grill up rather easily. At least one serving per day, sometimes up to three.

Cauliflower one/two heads every other week
I did eat a salad yesterday with mixed greens and spinach with left overs for tonight.
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Unsweetened Coconut Milk
Truthfully, my diet, isn’t really a diet per say. I tend to forage and don’t have set meal times; bad habits from the 9 years of confusion since the 2003 hospitalization.
For months, I was trying to pigeon pick within the Metagenic’s shopping list, while branching out on my own to things like Sweet Baby Coconuts/water since it said “coconut”. The water was so soothing, all the nutrients were a plus and so many people saying they help to rebuild the flora; albeit expensive on their own. The Ultimate Meal with soy or coconut water is good too. Fresh organic tofu with flax oil. Went through a sushi grade fish and miso phase earlier this year and still work in some canned tuna/water. Tried flax seeds on my eggs and use either flax or EVO oil.
I have had a good experience with the eggbeaters today, so they probably will fold into regular rotation. Same with the plain oatmeal. I seemed to do okay with the blue berries w/yogurt and w/oatmeal, which is welcomed. I also tried some coconut spread butter substitute in the oatmeal which also seemed to be alright. A small container of cottage cheese 1 to 2 times a week spread throughout. Instant Miso has always been easy on my system.
This is another bad truth but, I’m not that good on the veggies due to prep time and shopping regularity. Thus the super green supplements and caps. I was throwing away more of the fresh than consumed to mildew. Another reason TUM is worthy of consideration as it is a much better food source than backsliding to Glucerna AB’s and Atkin’s beverages to fill in the gaps as they tend to make me hypoglycemic. (note: Glucerna contains Molybdenum) The only issue is convenience; TUM only sells to Whole Foods or online apparently which makes it a hassle.
Without sounding too pathetic, after years of being away from food/cooking for so long, other than buy/eat convenience this all just overwhelms me spiritually and seems physically exhausting to support. No matter what I try, there’s some finger wagging at me saying, “you failed”. I have looked at this forums protocols and they are yet more finger wagging but, totally in line with an ideal scenario.
I’m serious about thinking it might be wisest course of action to get PRIMAL DEFENSE DSO to build up my system as a starting point rather than focusing on diet presently. What’s the use of a diet if your body can’t digest what you are consuming?
Whew~!!…what an enigma to piece together. Any helpful insights, opinions, advice or support is dearly appreciated. I can’t be the only one whose been where I’m at, can I?
