I have yoyo’d for about a year trying out a variety of different approaches to battling my candida, it’s only when I finally committed myself to doing this for “as long as it takes”, that I’ve finally stuck to it for a decent amount of time. Every time I decided I should be well enough to eat how I wanted, the disappointment and discomfort of my symptoms coming back gave me the drive to try again.
I now feel better than I have in a long time, and it’s lovely not to feel tired all the time. I know I still have a fair while of work ahead of me, but I can see some light at the end of the tunnel.
I didn’t cut all foods out immediately, purely because my diet has changed with my research, and I am always reading new ideas & information.
Maybe you could gradually work your way onto the full diet, do you think that might help you stick to it? Cut out all yeast products, fruit & dairy first, then grains and the starchy veg when you’re ready.
Read up on foods you CAN eat rather than can’t, it’s much better for you psychologically.
Have you looked into what foods you can buy online? Can you get an organic meat and/or veg box delivered?
Buying a whole chicken and taking the meat off the bone is a more economical way of buying it (there’ll be videos on line if you want to learn how to do it)
Do you eat fish? I’ve been trying some cheaper fish that’s available and some of it’s really nice.
I hope that when you start to feel the benefits, that will be enough to encourage you to commit to it fully, it really will be worth the effort.
I don’t know why I haven’t tried just removing one thing at a time! I have done fairly well with removing bread from my diet, but that’s about the only thing. The hardest things for me are pastas and fast food. Terrible, I know!
My mom and my fiance have given me the same advice as you. It seems all my life I have focused on the negative side of things. I’m really trying to change that.
I will look into having foods delivered, though I’m not sure how I feel about that. Plus, it will probably be near impossible. As I said in a previous post, I live in a very small town – a lot of people don’t even know it exists!
The day after I have actually avoided all the bad stuff, I did feel rather better.
Did you/are you doing the cleanse before starting stage one? I attempted, but I just can’t handle the liver flush drink – any suggestions? Would it be okay just to do one of those colon cleanse kits?
Thank you for posting! 🙂 And, I hope your journey becomes easier!
