s. wrote: mimigrace – if you’re still reading, my heart really goes out to you as this is the sickest I’ve ever been in my life as with candida. I reread your post and I see the main crux. You don’t know what to eat. That was my main problem until I got a hold of the strict diet from Able and Raster. Then things really took an upturn. Get a copy and follow it. Make sure you get plenty of carbs to start your day in the way of the right veggies. I have had to eat more meat than is recommended – I guess becuase I am O blood type and we need lots of protien. I start my day off with a snib of chuck tender steak – organic – and eat an avacoado, lettuce, leek pieces and a bit of buckwheat. Breakfast is soooooo important. Even if you don’t feel like eating – eat and it will get better. Also ginger tea – sipping a cup all morning. I just put it in a travel mug to keep it warm. For the first couple of weeks my stomach would just burn from it – now it takes any burning away.I also eat every meal with a start of a bit of apple cider vinegar in water. When I first started the ACV I would get really bad brain fog and feel like passing out. Now I have no reaction. I’m on the mend. Good luck! And keep in touch with everyone. There is really literally life saving information here.
Thank you, S.! Not knowing what to eat is a lot of the problem, compounded by the fact that I’m living at home with my family (8 people) and on the go a lot with wedding stuff.
Yesterday was decent, I think. I had the following:
Breakfast: 2 Eggs w/ olive oil, white pepper, salt, spinach, garlic + a glass of kefir.
Lunch: a smoothie of coconut milk, plain yogurt, water, and blueberries (I know technically not allowed, but they are the lowest glycemic index fruit)
Snack: unsweetened coconut, a dab of butter, coconut oil, chopped pecans, cinnamon
Dinner: steak, asparagus, bell peppers, onion, broccoli, brown rice
Again, I realize that there are a few no nos on the list, but this is the best I can do for now while I’m trying not to literally waste away and die. I lost about three lbs this week, three lbs that I really don’t have to lose.
Thanks for the encouragement! After we get married I can probably control my diet a lot better. I’m just trying to survive until then.
Any other menu ideas?
