I’ve been very faithful to this diet. I’m in my second week of stage 1 and am looking forward to introducing foods next week. My problem is that I’m having a hard time with stomach problems. I’ve always had to be careful when I eat eggs because they don’t seem to sit well in my stomach. I’ve been having one every meal and my insides are starting to complain. I’m thinking it could be the amount of oil that I’m having as well. I’m not used to a lot of oil. I have about two salads a day with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/2 tsp of sesame oil on it. I also of course frying my eggs in coconut oil. Can I eat more chicken? And can I start introduce buckwheat into my diet early? I think a good does of fiber might help as well. Any feedback would be very appreciated.

You might try something called trimethylglycine marketed under the name TMG for the indigestion/stomach problems.
It’s your choice as far as switching the eggs, but if oil is the problem, if you can manage to switch your olive and sesame oils to coconut oil this shouldn’t cause a problem. Many people have taken up to 15 teaspoons or more of coconut oil a day without a problem.

Do you think it’s too early to add buckwheat to my diet?

And how can you make dressing out of coconut oil?
Thanks again for your help in all of this.March 14, 2012 at 7:12 am #75794

Probably not unless you have Leaky Gut Syndrome and it causes an allergy. You could always test a small amount, something like three teaspoons the first and second day and watch for reactions.
Some people use coconut oil as a salad dressing, or perhaps add it with other ingredients. Do a google search for coconut oil salad dressings or you could check in the recipe section on the forum to see if there are recipes.

Okay. I’ll try to persevere with the eggs. I went on line and there are a few options for dressing, so I’ll try that. But about the kefir. Can I use organic milk or should I go underground for the raw?

Sesame oil aggravated my stomach. I don’t think sesame should be eaten from the start, since you’ll never know if you’re sensitive to it or not. Avoiding onions and garlic is another thing that helped settle my stomach. It was fairly bad for the first few weeks and has been okay since. I might test some onions again soon.March 14, 2012 at 7:52 am #75803

Organic milk from the supermarket is all that’s really needed and all I ever used during my treatment.March 14, 2012 at 8:22 am #75810

Raw milk is best for making kefir because it contains a larger variety of probiotics and bacterium. It is typically difficult to find.
