The diet......

Tanya asked in my previous post about the diet im on and ive been taking photos (to scrap of course lol) of my daily routine on the Candida diet its essentially a strict diet im on for the next 8 days (its for 2 weeks im nearly half done woot woot) Im not allowed alot of things no mushrooms,no dairy,no caffiene,no breads,no pasta,no processed meats and no chocolate or sugar (I seriously nearly cried at the last one lol those that know me know I LOVE sweet stuff!) along with a heap of other things the list is as long as my arm lol The naturopath has given me a meal plan,some herb drink (ugh its like a mixture of potpourri,cough medicine and manky water all mixed into a little brown bottle lol) So anywhoo heres the diet
Before breakfast: Zinc drink-looks harmless enough but oh boy did it knock me off my feet for a couple of days not a fan lol The herb drink-note the delicious brown colouration mmmm tasty lol

Breakfast: An omelette made with leek,onion,eschallots and 2 organic eggs ....holey dooley those bad boys are exy!The inner stinge in me argued with myself at the egg department in woolies ......."But Tony said you have to......but they are soooooo dear...I could buy 3 of the cheap cartons for that!" lol I quickly took a deep breath and deposited them in the most expensive basket of groceries Ive ever bought and raced to the checkout lol
Snack: 1 piece of fruit-apple.banana or pear

Before lunch: More delicious herb drink

Lunch: 1 palm of meat (can be organic chicken,grain fed beef,turkey,fish,lamb-I think NOT!lol) Day 1 I went for the organic chook and my 2 palms worth of steamed vegies

Snack: 12 nuts I picked macadamias

Before dinner: More herb drink.....usually holding my nose to drink it at this stage of the day lol

Dinner: Im allowed to have roasts,stews,same as lunch or stirfrys with my "Allowed vegies" This is my super yummy stirfry (The pan is a mini one lol im not eating a massive fry pans worth lol) made with organic beef oh my this stuff is delicious!!

Im also keeping a dream diary....hehehe if anything its worth a giggle ....last nights dream involved me being bitten by 2 small monkeys :O yep im weird lol and I usually have 2 dreams a night so he is going to get double the read lol

So thats my life for the past 6 and coming 8 days :) I feel "better" not sluggish or bleh like I had been so it must be newly aquired double chin from the last few months is gone again :D My clothes are falling off me so im guessing ive lost about 2kgs...thats not the idea of the diet but obviously my body had lots of toxins to dispose of or perhaps its the no carbs and no sugar thing :$ Im having Bowen therapy when I go back for my next visit,so we'll see how that goes too :) It'll all be worth it in the end ...hopefully :) Cross your fingers for me pretty please :)

If you survived reading this long thanks for sticking with it lol and sorry if I bored you lol

Andie said...

I read the whole lot coz I've BEEN there :( Earlier this year I had to go sugar/dairy/wheat/honey/soy/fruit free etc etc for 4 months! Supposedly for upper internal candida but it didn't work so obviously that wasn't my problem. I hope it works for you! At least you don't have to do it for long :)

Tanya Tahir said...

Very interesting, Krissy! And thanks for sharing. The herb drink looks sound delish...not! Good on your for sticking to it. I can't stick to anything. You're almost done - you are doing so well. And think how great you'll feel at the end :)

Leah said...

Looks great Krissy! Maybe you need to buy yourself some laying hens! :) Oh my, that omelette & stirfry looks amazing! Glad to hear you are starting to feel better!

Ali said...

So glad you've still got your sense humour Krissy - had to laugh at your description of the herb drinks - blurk! Good luck for the next 8 days - please start wearing a belt in public - don't want you getting arrested cos your pants fell off ;-)
