Eating veggies sautéed in coconut oil the last day and a half once or twice/day ( and 1 avocado each day for last two days. (First three days were just water, veggie broth, chia drink and supplements)
My question is as I transition to the strict diet… Which of the above do I continue?
I’ve not experienced any die off symptoms (that I’m aware of).
Very good. I was only able to hold on the detox period for 3 days. The fact that you didn’t experience die off symptoms can be related to the fact that you didn’t take antifungals yet besides the coconut oil, which you didn’t need to take during the detox period. The only thing that you should eat during a detox period are veggies and detox drinks and things that protect your liver (molybdenum, milk thistle, …). So, no supplements, coconut oil, antifungals, …

First week: add organic eggs. You can also add other kinds of protein sources like hemp seeds and chlorella or spirulina. After two weeks, you can add fish or organic chicken to your diet. Only once a week. Then the next week 2 times a week and so on until you can have this once a day.

With work… It’s tough to do all the supplements and detox drink at the right times… And I’m finding I’m forcing myself to eat the veggies as I’m not hungry *at all*
In this diet you don’t *need* to do anything. It’s up to you what you want to consume. Some things are really recommended, like extra virgin coconut oil and kefir.
I would stop taking the detox drink for now and focus on antifungals and probiotics.
Bitters are always a good idea. Don’t eat when you are not hungry, unless you need to work for some time without the chance to eat.
About the timing:
1 week after the cleanse: supplements and vitamins
2 weeks after the cleanse: antifungals
3 weeks after the cleanse: (home made) kefir
It is a good idea to take vitamin c from the beginning.
Alternate between your antifungals.
