''Just follow the book, don't look for magic fixes to get you off the hook. Do the work.'' Dr.D.'98 DNA mt/Haplo H; Y-chrom/J2(M172);ESTJ The harder you are on yourself, the easier life will be on you!
As you follow the ER plan and your body gets cleaned out you will find your own level of tolerance for a lot of things. We are each unique.
I use sheep's milk romano cheese and have no problems. I also use goat cheese and also Mt. Vikos brand combined sheep milk and goat milk feta which is absolutely delicious.
Vinegar of any kind: No. Lemon juice is my most preferred substitute for vinegar. It took me a while of being on the ER plan to figure out how much fresh lemon juice to substitute for the vinegar in all of my recipes, but I much prefer the cleaner and fresher taste of the fresh lemon juice!
I also use goat milk yogurt. Cow milk products of any kind give me really bad sinus problems, so I don't use ANY cow milk products at all, even the ones that are listed as neutral for me.
I've followed the ER diet successfully for over 5 1/2 years now and can finally eat some things that used to really bother me before I started on ER. Some things, like broccoli, I will never be able to digest.
For some people, the regular ER plan is not enough and they really need to take the next steps toward the full SWAMI individualized plan.
