I don't know if I had this but last night I felt I needed some fresh beneficial O n/s fruit so I went out and bought cherries, mangoes, plums, and pineapple concentrate (to make juice out of). In the last week I have been 100% compliant and have cut carbs waaaaay back in my diet. Last night I couldn't take being w/o fruit any longer.

I could be wrong but I feel some beneficial fruit will be just fine for me right now. If I have to I feel I can limit it to 1 piece daily.

It's great to be on ER4YT again. I don't think I'll ever make the mistake of wandering off of it again. I've made many mistakes but that was one of the biggest ones. It's good that it's been figured out for anyone that cares enough to devote to this way of eating, and I am. I've asked so many people, MDs, PhDs, etc., what I should eat. Then one day I woke up and told myself it's time to get back on ER4YT again. Then I asked myself "why did I ever stop ER4YT in the first place???". I guess I was anxious to damage my GI tract again.

It's not bad at all. With all of the beneficials and neutrals, I know I can eat well without eating any avoids. The more I learn of it and the longer I'm on it, the easier it is to follow and the easier it is on my body. For me, I feel this is well worth the effort.

Last night I had a delicious supper of turkey soup with onion, rutabaga, carrot, and coconut oil, with organic spinach and onions.

Today I'm going to have an omelet with sauteed onion, zucchini, mushrooms, and free range eggs, (but without cheese) with Ezekiel bread.

How long should I take Larch and/or Polyflora O for if I've eaten avoids for most of my life?

Some fruit should be OK. I usually eat quite a bit of it for breakfast & I have low blood sugar.

I don't ever want to be without probiotics. I've been taking them for over twenty years. As for the Larch, I have been taking it every day for a few years and don't intend to stop any time soon because it makes me feel wonderful!

Thanks for the replies.

How does Larch make you feel? So far (about 10 days of BTD) my eliminations have improved a lot. I'm not sure if I notice more than that yet (but I bet I will) but I do seem to feel perhaps a little more calm.
I've also been a lot more disciplined / determined. I'm no longer eating large amounts of whatever. I'm going to go by the book and eat 1-3 pieces of fruit daily. I might skip a day once in a while.

I didn't realize it's not the fruit I was eating that caused my bowels to be so unusual, it was probably more the type of fruit.

I used to eat a big bowl of organic oatmeal with free range eggs for breakfast. I can now see why that was a very poor thing for me to eat. I sometimes ate organic Amy's pizzas on weekends. I liked them but they didn't like me.

My Live Blood Cell analysis test was not looking good pre BTD. He said the cells are clumped together. I'm not sure but I think that's one of the main symptoms of eating avoids. I'm hoping that too will improve.

Here's a picture I took of my Live Cell Blood at an NMD's office about 2 weeks ago :

I have my fruit in my protein smoothie in the morning. Also, I feel calmer and my muscles less tense if I avoid grains.  There are a LOT of advantages to following the nonnie BTD.

I used to eat a lot of avoid grains like wheat bread, oatmeal, (for a long time I'd eat free range eggs poached with organic oatmeal and coconut oil for breakfast) organic wheat pizza with extra cheese, etc., etc. Now I'm BTD compliant and I do eat Ezekiel bread a few times a week, and I seem to do OK/well on it. I usually have it with eggs. That's the only grain I eat (beneficial). I don't eat rice or any neutral grain. I think I'm better off without it.
