Do you feel better since starting the diet? Are your symptoms subsiding etc.
I have the same problem with drinks, I am also 20 something and all my friends love to socially drink. As do I. My favourite past time. For the last 2 years I have been back and forth with the diet because I never go past 2-3 weeks with the diet. As soon as I feel better I end up drinking or sometimes I don’t feel better and I drink due to the fact that I am sick of not being included in fun drink time!
It’s really hard but its good to stick with it. You could be getting your symptoms due to a food alergy or some sort of underlying issue. The reason the diet is good is when you re-introduce the foods after a few months of cleansing you can do so slowly and see if you have reactions to foods.
If you can stick to it now I would because dealing with it for years is no fun in my experience. I have finally just going for the full out cleanse I’m on week 5 now which is alot longer then I have done cuz I was fed up with the crap. Now I am feeling alot better. and just going to slowly bring back foods and see what happends. I’m also booking an appointment to see an alergiest. see if they can test me for food alergies.
I also have had many doubts as to wether it was candida but after going back to normal food and feeling shitty again and going to doctors giving me tests with no results I just decided its the only thing that makes sense. No MD can figure it out. Then I seen a naturopath who told me it was candida.
I also feel better in the spring summer, i think thats due to the sunshine. Being in colder climates and winter always makes me feel crappy. In the summer time I have more energy and feel better but normally still have my candida symptoms. Not this summer though. Cuz I am gettin this shiznit done and done!
I hope I helped. Let me know if you want more info.
