Jorge, I’ve held that diet for the most part for a few months now with intermittent mistakes and I have lost tons of weight. What are these other sources you would recommend and how would I work them into my treatment? I have reactions from everything. I can’t even have buckwheat or coconut flour right now. I would do anything for extra energy and carbs so please share. If you or anyone else has a good way to tweak my meals and get me more full and covered nutritionally, I’d love the input, that’s why I posted this. I want to gain weight and have some energy while still fighting this thing.
Does anybody have any idea on my salmon question btw? (how often is it safe to have?)
You could try oat flour, or teff flour, the Sauerkraut shouldn’t have any water only sea salt and cabbage, the salt will pull the water from the cabbage and that is where it comes from, it is very hard to find raw sauerkraut which is what you need, mostly because manufacturers pasteurize to extend the shelf life. So even refrigerated sauerkraut has most likely been pasteurized unless it specifically says raw or unheated. There is a brand Bubbles in the USA and Canada that claims it contains live cultures but is not raw, go to health food stores would be a good bet. I have a excellent brand in Canada that is organic and completely raw.
As for your weight you didn’t mention how much VCO you were eating if you are still loosing weight eat more, eat upto 5tbsp per day. Make Avocadoes your friend and eat daily they are excellent source of calories healthy fats , lots of fibre, and chock full of nutrients. Personally if I was loosing too much weight I would add a bit of meat but others on the forum disagree, that it may hinder your progression, but if you are loosing too much weight that also isn’t good for your recovery. Also depending on how far into your diet you are, full fat Greek yoghurt is an excellent source of calories.
Salmon is a good choice for protein and it is very anti inflammatory. 2-3 servings per week is good. And eating coconut will help like coconut milk, and shredded dried un sulphured unsweetened. Coconut is a great source of high calories.
