I recommend the following:
1)Eat 3-4 course meals if possible; add in some side dishes such as veggies or other ideas from allowed foods list.
2)Check out the teff/coconut flour/buckwheat flour recipe on the forum. Teff has great weight gaining properties.
3)Greek yogurt (plus kefir)
5)Almond butter when you can handle it(I don’t think you are doing the stage 1 stage 2 thing)
Also consider adding trace minerals to your diet because your body uses trace minerals to fight off candida.
I lost 10-25 pounds on the diet and then I gained it all back.
