I wonder how much of early die-off is also caused by sugar and/or caffeine withdrawal. Some studies have shown sugar to be like an addictive substance for some people. Withdrawal can be nasty. Caffeine withdrawl, too, can be absolutely horrible. I went off of caffeine gradually. I knew it would be awful if I went cold turkey, so I went from coffee to green tea and gradually made the tea weaker until I stopped. I don’t think I was completely off caffeine until day 10 or so of the diet. Zero headaches or ill effects, though, which I’m glad for. I’m not sure if I just didn’t have a super high candida count or what, but my die-off symptoms were really slight (pronounced fatigue, moodiness). I drank a TON of water everyday, like 80 ounces. That may or may not have helped. I read that it was good to so, so I did it. It certainly can’t hurt to drink a lot of water everyday 🙂 I’m so sorry the die-off has been so very hard. It will be SO WORTH IT though if you keep at it!!!! 🙂 I’m on Week 8 of the diet now, and I’m actually feeling really good again!
Hang in there.
