    I’ve been eating the yeast off a fork for the past 2 weeks, at the same time I’ve eaten carrots, tomatoes, plenty of red meat & coffee.

    I’m tempted to have Pizza also.

    I’ve not noticed any set backs from it, although I am at 14 month stage & on holiday. So much more relaxed.

    I gave up with water kefir, mine came out like moonshine (my wife, sister & mum all thought it tasty too boozey & rank).

    Milk grains work with coconut water, although you will have to put them back in milk (every so often) if you want them to keep growing.

    any ideas?

    I have just started with s boulardii for a few weeks on holiday, then plan to change to bakers yeast, but wanted to know if I could still cook with these?

    Try using raw milk if you can source it.

    I bought some new ones as I had been using them on coconut water for ages & I had the same problems. When I started using raw milk the new one’s can’t stop growing.

    Try bone broth. Grass fed organic beef bone broth takes longer than chicken to make, but has an awful lot of beneficial elements to healing the gut. Google it.

    Yes it was my main symptom before I started the treatment. Its much better than before, although my digestive symptoms are much more sensitive than when I started.

    I saw ENT (who were useless), had MRI on ear & brain, saw neurologist & got referred to audiologist, who had me doing VRT for it (which helps slightly, but never fixed it). Its only when I started the Candida diet that the symptoms calmed down, i’ve not had any major attacks since (although die off was horrendous). I still get the odd moment when I don’t feel right when out & about, but never get the attacks which would leave me out of work & going out for weeks-months. It was liking being really drunk but without drinking a thing.

    Just adjust it to see how it suits you best. If you feel low on energy in the day, eat something candida diet acceptable, if you find following that plan improves your energy stick with it but eat candida diet foods in the evening. But beware, if you have leaky gut, loading up with food in one meal can put quite a burden on your digestive system.

    I found eating in a 10 hour window & having 14 hours clear helped with my digestion, which is what I do normally, some people like to extend that to 9: 15, or 8:16. Really depends how much fuel you need for life.

    the upside to the warrior diet is your digestion doesn’t get overwhelmed with processing food, but the downside is you may find yourself very tired trying to deal with die off/adrenal fatigue.

    I found when I did the odd fast I felt much better afterwards.

    I had been drinking unsweetened almond milk recently & found it was aggravating my leaky gut. It caused me a lot of discomfort when going to the toilet. I think its best to avoid all the gums, also since most of the store bought almond milks are pasteurised, i’m very suspect of what they use to put the vitamins back in (they don’t really put as much detail on the packaging as they should I suspect)

    Your body will sort its weight out on its own. Don’t be concerned with it. Do you make coconut bread? It’s filling and high calorie.

    I would not recommend nuts at this point. Six weeks in is not very long.

    6 weeks isn’t very long??? says who?? this feels like an eternity. ***gives the middle finger***

    6 weeks isn’t very long, but I agree its hard (& the early stages are horrendous), but if you do have candida (& leaky gut) you will need to accept your in it for the long haul.

    It gets better, and you may find later down the line you can tolerate certain nuts if you soak & dehydrate them (but this is not part of forum diet, its up to you to see how you react at a later stage).

    I would read this forum as much as possible and utilise the knowledge a lot of the good people on here have to share. Thats what i’ve done this past year and am far better than this time last year, but still have a bit to go & to be honest i’m pretty content eating the diet for the long term (of course I would like to be able to have the odd bit of pizza, cake, etc – but that time will come).

    be careful if you are taking any meds with this, I was taking anti histamines & I had to go to hospital to get more asthma drugs because I was finding I couldn’t breathe properly when I took it.

    I think Able said 100% organic hemp protien powder (unflavoured) is ok, but my advice would be don’t over dose on it. If I had it more than once a day it really effected my stool.

    Should I be concerned with the malt diastase in the product?
