    Hi everyone

    Concerning quantities of the diet, stage 1 if you will (would be after detox, which i’m skipping), is there a limit? I mean, is there a problem if I eat 2 tins of sardines instead of one, 3 eggs instead of 2, one big piece of fish instead of a little piece? I’m a hungry man, I move a lot and I need my food 🙂

    As long as I stick to the “foods allowed” section, do I have to keep quantities in mind?

    kind regards

    Jee

    I wouldn’t worry too much; candida seems to tax the bodily and drains a lot of energy. I would consider eating 3-4 course meals instead of piling up on sardines and eggs myself. Sides such as buckwheat, veggies, salads, coconut bread, kefir/greek yogurt are good ones to consider.

    It’s actually better for your body to eat smaller meals more frequently. It doesn’t put so much strain on your digestive system and helps to keep your blood sugar stable. When you get hungry, try munching on avocado, olives or other veggies and the yoghurt or kefir like Raster said.

    When you’re on a low-carb diet like this, your body uses fat for fuel, so instead of extra sardines, why not extra olive or coconut oil? Supplementing fish oil will give you extra calories, as well as a lot of other health benefits. Avocado has a decent amount of fat too.

    If you’re active, you do want to get a decent amount of protein to avoid muscle loss, but at the same time it’s the hardest nutrient to digest, and excessive animal and fish proteins can cause problems for candida sufferers. You want to get the amount of protein you need, and avoid going over that amount.

    Javizy is right about not eating really large meals; you’d be better off eating 6 or 7 smaller meals a day rather than 3 or 4 larger ones. This would help to keep your blood sugar up which would prevent weakness as well as hunger. I learned to eat this way during the treatment; even now I usually eat six meals a day without gaining extra weight.

    That’s correct, Jee, and then not that often. You’d be better off eating the coconut flour bread to be honest.
