    Is there such a thing as too big a mess up like eating the wrong foods, not doing things in the right order that would make it impossible for this diet to work, or is it best just to figure out where you went wrong. I feel like I keep discovering things I’m doing wrong even with the protocol.
    Do we have to make sure we don’t eat the same foods two days in a row?
    What about eating all those eggs, will you develop a problem by eating them so often?

    Do we have to make sure we don’t eat the same foods two days in a row?

    I don’t know where that idea originally came from or why, unless it concerns the possibility of becoming allergic to foods. But if you have leaky gut syndrome which causes the allergies, every time you eat, no matter what you’re eating or when you ate it last, you’re still taking a chance on contracting another allergy to the food. And as I’ve pointed, it doesn’t matter when you last ate the food because leaky gut is caused by food, “any” food, getting into the bloodstream via the gut. This is what causes the allergies, and not the actual food itself and not whether or not you’ve eaten it once or four times in the past 24 hours. To rephrase this; when you eat with leaky gut, you will “always” be taking a chance that an allergy is forming as the food goes into your digestive tract regardless of the type of food you’re eating.

    I ate the very same food every day for nearly 12 months and cured my infestation during that time. The truth is, the larger the variety of foods you eat, the more foods you’ll probably become allergic to.

    What about eating all those eggs, will you develop a problem by eating them so often?

    Most of us on the forum have eaten eggs until we hoped to never see another one; as far as I know, no one has had a problem directly related to eggs unless they were allergic to them.

    If you don’t have any problems eating eggs now, then don’t worry about it too much. I know at times when you are already on such a restricted diet and still feeling bad it is easy to start to suspect everything as a potential problem food, but that’s not really helpful. I can see from your other posts that you are having a hard time. So try not to take on board extra worries that might not even be the case for you. If eggs have been fine so far, then most likely they will continue to be so onwards as well.

    I personally did go through a period when I got reactions to eggs. I don’t know why though. At the time the only thing that helped was not eating them every day. The food rotation is something I read somewhere as being useful for treating leaky gut, which I have. I decided to try it as I was having reactions to absolutely everything (even some vegetables) and didn’t know what else to do. It did help me. But as I said, if you are not having reactions to eggs then why bother with even considering rotating foods (it’s just making things even more complicated). I don’t really know what was going on with me that time, but I am a lot better now. I don’t actually do the food rotation any more as I don’t have any need to. And I can pretty much have eggs every day again.

    Until something presents itself as a problem for you, don’t worry about it even if you did read that it happened to someone else. It might not be the same problem with you. And most people tolerate eggs just fine, even in larger amounts.

    oh, one more thing: don’t worry too much about messing up. Even if you mess up once does not mean that you will be forever doomed to having to live with Candida overgrowth. Take the mess-up as a learning lesson. I can see that you are trying to make sure you do everything right, and that’s great. Just don’t be too hard on your self. Do your best. That’s enough.

    There is such a thing as too big a messup and I experienced it when I was on my honeymoon. I ate tons of white flour, processed foods, sugar, fruits, etc. (basically a bunch of junk) and I started to have seizures again afterwards. My angular chilitis came back.

    I also messed up early on in my treatment and ate things like sunflower seeds, rice, milk, etc. and these all set back my treatment. By following the allowed foods list I was able to get better much faster.
