I can't spare the funds for anything extra right now, not the Tennessee conference or the SWAMI.  I'm living paycheck to paycheck.  ABNW, I would eat a lot more meat except that it's so expensive (and beans just don't do it for me).  I think I'm already spending 1/4 to 1/3 of my take-home pay on food! On the bright side, at least I feel well enough to work and have pay, which I wouldn't be if I was still eating the cheap food on which I used to subsist.

We're with you bro, we're with you.  I've found a store that at least carries Ostrich for 6.79 a pound.  I was paying 10.00.  My son has to rotate foods every 4 days because of his allergies.  And it's a challenge making sure he has the right amounts of meats when he's only got a few choices.  And ostrich is one of them.  

And good turkey isn't cheap.  And on and on.  I hear you.  BUT, it's an investment.  

I'm glad you are feeling better and can work.  I actually made it out to watch the Milwaukee Brewers play tonight.  That, I couldn't do a year ago.  Although it was kind of dicey in the beginning.  All that commotion in the ball park just kind of wears me down.  When I used to thrive on stuff like that.  Rrrrrrrrrrrr......  But we prayed, and once I got in there, I actually felt pretty good.  God is good!!!!!!!

Also Drive, my son said your picture looked like me, and I was like, you know, we do kind of resemble each other.  We should put our pictures together and see if everyone else thinks so.

Quoted from Chanur
So how's it going with her? Is the Explorer diet working out for her?



Yes!!!  Elizabeth is doing well on the Explorer diet.  As I told you in a p.m., there are two changes I see so far:

1. honey used to give her red eye circles.  Now she can eat honey again without any problem.

2. walnuts give her the runs.

Also she's having stomach aches and headaches less often.  Her moods are a little more stable.

Quoted from TJ
ABNW, there's no rush to get on the GTD.  I pre-ordered the book and got it in December, but didn't start doing GTD until about a month ago.  I dipped my toe in it, and from reading it and experimenting I discovered my gluten intolerance, but I mostly stayed with BTD until last month.

I believe BTD was a better diet for me up to that point, because I was still quite sickly.  GTD does a lot of remodeling, while BTD mostly cleans and repairs the house.  I needed to get the cleaning up and repairs done before I was ready to start the serious remodeling (i.e. the epigenetic reprogramming of GTD).  If you still feel like you are improving on the AB diet, stick with it a while longer.  If you are having trouble with your weight, eat more grains.  I know you're trying to kill off the candida, but maybe it would be better to do it in bursts.  Go a few weeks on that diet, then relax and eat more starches and sugars for a couple of weeks.  Three weeks of total warfare again that alien was all I could stand, and I lost 10 lbs. over that time.  I still haven't regained, but at least I'm holding steady now.


Drive are you gluten intolerance????...
so can you eat oats??, I belive that oats has gluten!!!....but its SF...

ABNW
When I want to gain weight I usually eat oats...   because I also lost weight easily...

oats per se should not contain gluten, but it is the cross contamination found in handling the oats which may contain the problem.
find a source of GF organic oats.

  I've been springing for better quality (grass-fed, organic) foods lately and it does get expensive. Of course, convenience food is expensive too and so little of the money goes to the farmer. I've got some pretty good garden veges right now and they're free! Lots of squash, green beans (which I've been canning), carrots, cucumbers, and peppers and they all grow great is zone 4a Wisconsin weather. There's a great Mexican market in Eau Claire that carries cheap cuts of mutton and goat meat for $3 a pound and I look forward to deer hunting. With this abundance, I'm finding it easier to focus on what I can eat.

Chris, maybe I should pay you and have you ship me some mutton.  That's like 5 hours away from here.  hehehehehhehe.

Raquel, yeah, oats.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....  I think they are what have helped me put some weight back on.  And more grains in general.  But I have been eating oats lately and really like them.  I mean really.  If I eat too much though, my stomach doesn't like it.  But that's the case with anything.  I think it's just a little more sensitive to oats than say rice though.  Even sweet potatoes I can eat a whole one and it doesn't seem to affect me.  I probably said all this a hundred times.  Sorry.

Ribbit, that's great news!  Hopefully the improvements will continue in other areas too.

Raquel, I am gluten intolerant.  Not bad enough that eating gluten makes me sick, but enough that it shows up in my fingerprints and in my sensitivity to eggs.  Regular oatmeal makes my stomach feel odd, but the gluten-free oatmeal doesn't.  Neither does oat bran.  The oat bran is a lot cheaper, and Nomad superfood, so I use it.

ABNW, I think you're right, we do favor each other a bit!

DRIVE when I use oats cooked like a 'papilla baby'  or porridge at breakfast with rice or oats milk , I feel so good all the morning!!
Anyway, I hope you will better, at least your pic look nice...
When I was just 20 y.o, I had a strong colitis, so I began my flight in the naturopath world, in just 3 weeks I felt recovered ( with similar diet AB BTD and herb medicine) and never again I have had that terrible colitis....


Best wishes!

We assume she's a nonnie because of her sensitivities.  Also, when we tried the AB sec. diet and it just wasn't quite right, we changed her to the nonnie diet just to see, and it was better.

I forgot and gave her almonds this morning.  This is why, when I talk to people about elimination diets, I say give it month, not just the two weeks recommended by the experts.  Not that I'm an expert--it's just that it takes a week just to make it habit to think about what you're putting in your mouth, another week of accidentally forgetting, another week of mostly compliance and by the fourth week maybe you've actually got a clean enough system to know if you've got a problem when you do eat it again.

Ribbit I agree with you!!!! Sometimes some people needs more than a month to see the results because they  have high level of toxins.

Yes, it takes time.  My son has been eating very well for a LONG time now, over a year.  And we get better and better at it.  I still let them indulge in small treats after dinner.  But otherwise they eat very healthy at pretty much every meal.  Every once in a while we let them get away with things they're not supposed to.  But not very often.  PLUS, he's on a ton of  supplements from our doctor.

And we see results, very slowly, but they are there.  It takes time.  I agree with ribbit.  A month is just scratching the surface.

ABNW, have you thought of giving him fruit cobbler for dessert?  We've started making cobbler at least two or three nights a week.  Because it's sweetened with veg glycerin or agave, I don't worry about them eating a lot of it. And then they eat the leftovers for breakfast and I still don't have to worry about the "sugar" because it doesn't have any!

Good suggestion.  We eat a lot of fresh everything in our house.  Fruits and veggies.  But a change up would be good.  How do you make it?
