    Hi guys

    So I made the coconut bread and got a bit excited.

    I ate three slices for dinner and then another three slices before bed and woke up bloated.

    Now I know I should of tested the bread first, I was just very happy to have a variation for once and I think I over did it.

    I think I might throw this batch out and use baking soda instead as although the health food specialist said the baking powder was alluminium free, I don’t think it actually is.

    I actually felt OK after the first three slices, that’s why I think I over did it.

    I think I’ll avoid the coconut bread today and have just one slice tomorrow with breakfast to get a real idea.

    Good/bad idea? Thoughts?

    PS why is non aluminium free baking powder bad on this diet

    Hi all – so I know where I went wrong now.

    The baking powder I had was defiantly not the right one and I think enough of this ingested caused my issue yesterday. I have switched to baking soda/bicarbonate of soda and am baking another batch as I type this. I will only be having a few bites though this time with my breakfast!!

    I’ll let you know how it goes.

    I personally haven’t tried this yet but 6 slices might be too much at night. Maybe breakfast and then night snack might help you feel better. Not sure let me know how that goes.

    Oh my dear Sam! You know you what you did 🙂 I don’t think your problem was baking powder but 6 slices in the short period on a first batch. You’ve been on the diet for a while now and it’s probably taking time for your body to adjust to it. I think I read somewhere that there is a recommendation to not have more than 3-4 slices per day, pretty positive it was Able who recommended this. Check the forum and see if you find a reason why.

    I am in a country where listing ingredients is not that important. You buy a produce and nobody questions what’s in it, so none of the baking powder state if they are aluminum free or not. I just use it and have no reaction to it. Didn’t try baking soda at all.

    I could not tolerate coconut bread so I had to introduce oat bran and buckwheat instead and I’m baking bread out of those two. To this day I am unsure if coconut bread was causing a die-off reaction or my stomach could not digest it. I tried it several times early in the treatment but then I never went back to test it again once I started to feel better. This new bread I bake is more similar to regular wheat bread to me than coconut one so I am lazy to change it.

    Let us know how the second batch goes and slap yourself on the fingers if you go for it fourth time 🙂 Good luck!

    I had a lot problem with coconut bread, I took great care about all the ingredients, but still all my symptoms which went off after starting the diet returned. I ate it for 2 weeks.
    Im 100% sure it wasn’t die off.
    I completely stopped eating coconut bread, since more than 2 weeks, and the symptoms again went away.
    So some people have problem with coconut bread.

    So I made another batch today and had one slice only.

    Didn’t feel as bad as I did on Friday night/Saturday, but I felt a tiny little bit bloated.

    I might stick to one slice a day for the next few days and see how I feel.

    Slightly concerned by Nikki’s comments, I don’t want to end up going backwards….

    Samm, have you tried using Betaine HCL (hydrochloride) with your meals, this can definitely help with the bloating. Take one table while eating your meal. If you’re still bloated afterwards, try taking two the next time.

    Still waiting for it to arrive, should be today or tomorrow.

    Do you think that may help as that’s the only symptom I have when eating coconut bread…

    Another thing that happened was I woke up on Saturday after eating the coconut bread was I had a number of spots on my face and back.

    I don’t normally get spots and haven’t on this treatment so far. Could this be an allergic reaction or die off?

    Hello Sam,

    I think you’ve eaten too much coconut bread. When we state that you should try something out and wait a few days for reactions, we don’t mean “eat the item a whole bunch to see what happens.” What we mean is try a slice, a half of a slice, a quarter of a slice and see what happens…not 6 slices, lol!

    If you eat too much in general this can cause “bloating” and I am unsure whether this should be considered a “reaction” or not. I would look at it more as a cause/effect type thing…you ate a bunch of food and what kinds of problems can this cause? Bloating? Sounds pretty normal to me…I had a big meal the other day and I had bloating from that, but it was from food I’ve had throughout my treatment…

    The red spots, etc dont sound very good and I would consider this to be an allergic reaction. I would stop the coconut bread (maybe freeze it) and then try it again in a week or two to see if it happens again. I never had this kind of reaction personally except to foods not on the allowed foods list.

    I eat 2 slices per day and feel that this is a good healthy level to eat it at; I would not overindulge in any food items and try to balance your meals so that you have 3-4 portions of everything for those meals. For example, for dinner eat a salad, buckwheat, sausage, and a slice of bread…this would be better than 4 sausages and a whole bunch of bread.

    Honestly, as delicious as this bread sounds I would avoid it after reading about your bloating issue. Since I have given up grains and if I eat them once in awhile like 2-4 bites of rice I get extremely bloated.
