Not sure if this information helps. It might be too early to post anything about it, but I'm trying something new in terms of diet. I'm on day six of a diet that consists primarily of very specific super high quality fats. 60% fat, 20% flesh and egg protein, 20% low carb veggies like broccoli and cabbage. All cooked. Except the extra virgin olive oil of course (high heat not being good for that oil). The Extra-Virgin Olive-Oil
gets added to food that's already been cooked. There's a homemade probiotic you take and suerkraut too. Very specicif supplements as well. Found out about this diet via a candida support group on yahoo.:
Not sure if it is appropriate to share about this here?
The reason I mention it is there's no snacking to speak of. The meals are substantial. Drinking the electrolite drinks between meals seems to get me through from one meal to the next pretty well (at least by day six). It's too early for me to say much except my constipation is gone and I'm bloating less. My MCS (multiple chemcial sensitivity) is still full blown, thrush is still lingering, but only just. From research have deduced I'm dealing with systemic candida like the people that post here on this forum. From all I've read so far, the protocol outlined on that site made the most sense. We all have unique systems and ways of thinking and doing, so it might be just a personal preference that I'm going just about Eskimo in terms of diet to see if it helps my immune system at all.
Maybe this helps. Will post again if it ends up being the ticket to better health that I'm hoping.
