Thanks for the info Sarah! So would it not be better to be good for a few days, take a break one day and then continue properly than to just be bad for a few days? Or will all my effort be pointless from one day off? What worries me is that at the moment unless I’m on a diet I put on weight at a rate of about 2lbs a day…I wouldn’t like to gain more weight but then I don’t want to deprive myself for nothing either.
I don’t want to do this diet, in fact I’m dreading it, but I need to do it. I’ve been unwell for so long but have never known what will actually help. I’m scared I won’t be able to stick with it. I find it difficult to go without tea or to drink green tea without sweeteners.
I’m quite obsessed with my weight too, but even if I’m healthier I think I will still be unhappy if I am overweight. However, in my past experience I did a diet where I cut out a lot of stuff and I lost plenty of weight. It’s only now thinking about how I cut out most things that feeds candida that I realise why I lost the weight. It makes me feel a bit more confident that going on this diet will bring me down again and I have another diet I want to do when I’m well enough. I do agree with you though, that getting healthy needs to be put before losing weight. I’m really unhappy at my current weight though…I put on 12lbs in 9 days over Christmas and I haven’t been able to shift it despite diet and exercise.
I don’t think I can even get hold of buckwheat in my little town so I doubt I’ll ever know what it is! I’m going to miss sweet yoghurt and fruit.
Another question if you don’t mind. They say you should avoid cheese that is aged like blue cheese. I’m not really sure what other cheeses are aged though so I’m not sure what I can and can’t have.
