There’s a list of acceptable foods a lot of forum members use that was put together by Able900. If you send him a message, he can give it to you. It’s pretty strict, but it takes out the guesswork and error.
How do you cope with employment?
Fortunately/unfortunately for me, I’m an independent contractor who doesn’t work a ton of hours at my job, so I didn’t have to deal with this much, but it sounds like people who do really benefit from planning ahead: bringing prepared meals and snacks, taking extra molybdenum amino acid chelate to help with die-off, etc. If you can take any time off, do it. Obviously, that’s not an option for most people.
Also I have a lot of trouble sleeping and end up passing my son off on my husband during the day when hes not working then I go back to bed for a couple hours. Is this normal? I feel constantly drained.
I think that’s pretty normal. I slept sooo much during the first month of the diet/treatment. A lot of other people have mentioned insomnia/sleep disturbances, as well.
Also my left shoulder feels stiff and gets more painful when im tired. I havr never imjured it though. I dont know all the facts on frozen shoulder but am wondering if I might be in the early stages.
I’m a massage therapist, and I think you should get this looked at sooner than later. A massage therapist at a chiropractic office or physical therapy office would probably be a better bet than one at a spa, but not always — maybe try to get recommendations from friends in your area. It takes more than one massage to progress with an issue like that, but the sooner you get it worked on, the better. Ask for stretches to do at home between massage treatments.
My question is what do people typically eat for snacks? And breakfast? I can figure out lunch and dinner? Are free range eggs ok? Also I read that raw milk is good because of the probiotics.
Snacks: veggies, mostly. Also look for alexalgebra’s “granola” recipes in the recipe section of the forum. There’s a savory one and a spiced one and they’re both gooood. Some people also make hardboiled eggs ahead of time to keep on hand. There are a number of recipes for coconut/buckwheat breads in the recipe section, as well, that you can make ahead of time and keep on hand.
Breakfast: I usually eat one of the following: veggie stir-fry (you get used to it, really), eggs scrambled with a ton of vegetables, buckwheat/coconut pancakes (check the recipe section), or hot cereal (gluten-free oat bran or creamy buckwheat cereal).
Eggs: The key to look for is organic. If you can get them from a farm near you or a farmers market, that’s probably even better in most cases.
Raw milk: Milk contains a lot of sugar and is not included in the strict diet referenced above. You could use raw milk to make kefir, though. That’s probably ideal.
