So I’ve started the diet, did a bit of the cleanse diet first (following the website, not the forum, working on reading stuff on here ASAP). But eggs make me constipated and without any protein, I’m just hungry all the time so I’ve added in a bit of chicken out of desperation.
The thing is I don’t really eat meat. I wouldn’t call myself a vegetarian but I don’t like most meat and feel bad for eating it. I’ve bought some salmon and some more chicken but I can’t afford it every day for a long period and I’d rather get back to eating my beans, lentils and the occasional bit of processed vegetarian foods (quorn, tofu, tvp etc).
I’m only just over a week into the diet, so know it’s a long road as yet and whilst some symptoms have eased a little it’s still back and forth. I’ve probably added some things in too early and not being consistent enough about when to take things but I’m learning as I go as I was so uncomfortable and desperate due to vaginal symptoms including lots of swelling, tears and bleeding meaning I couldn’t sit, wear anything or walk without lots of discomfort and pain, plus the usual lethargic, spots, oral, nails, brain fog etc.June 1, 2018 at 1:15 am #175870

Trying to bump this in hopes of getting a reply.
At the moment I’m eating chicken or salmon every 2 or 3 days. It just doesn’t seem like enough protein and I’m starting to feel worse. Not sure if the candida is on the up as I’ve finished my prescription antifungals and GP refuses to give me any more, waiting for a specialist appointment, or my body is suffering from lack of protein. Cuts and bruises are taking weeks to heal, nails are flakey. I’m wondering if I was already deficient before I started this diet and this is just making it much more obvious.
I don’t feel like my body is ready for meat every day, I’ve never tolerated meat well and worried about the ammonia produced from digesting it benefiting the candida which is still present. But I’m now at the point that I’m craving beef, normally I don’t even like beef and I love cows so normally not even a thought about eating them.June 4, 2018 at 9:29 pm #175885

Im so sorry to hear what your going through. I can relate when I literally was scared to eat food. But on the nutritional side I practice a modified Paleo diet, I naturally love beans and peanuts, but they are super hard on the digestive track so I have left them out even now. If you can tolerate nuts and seeds you can find your protein there. Please do not let these dumb internet doctors scare you into buying into their suggestive bullshit sounding like conventional doctors insisting everyone is the same.
Keep in mind that stress will ruin your progress. There is no rules to your body, do and eat what makes you feel best as long as you eat super clean (organic/non gmo). Your health comes first, had I kept following those dumb lists I’d be eating liquids only. Just keep your sugar in mind when you do. My doctor ordered an Igg test for me and not only did it confirm that i had to focus on healing my gut after the treatment, but the intolerances that made sense I eliminated for a while. I have a huge diet now I decide to eliminate gluten and dairy even though I can have it. Sticking to my guns for now I feel great but I am sticking to my diet and still adding something in every now and then. Hope this helps.
Best of luck.June 7, 2018 at 1:17 pm #175896

How about changing the way that you eat eggs? Try them scrambled, so they’re already mixed up and your digestive system has less to do. If eggs are constipating you, that might well be another sign that your digestive system isn’t working great. As things improve, keep trying the eggs and see if you still get the constipation.
