Quoted from Debra+And Tom...please try and get compliant meals done ahead of time and freeze them.
Quoted from SquirrelOh Tom, maybe it's because I'm another O-nonnie, but I can SO relate to how you're feeling. Especially the sugar and the obsessing.
Another tip with sugar cravings, is not to snack on fruit, fresh, juiced or dried, until you have the cravings under control. Candida loves sugar from any source, so minimise your fruit intake right now. If you eat it along with other food then you digest it rather than allowing the candida to get any. Try adding mango to rice, or raisins to curry, that kind of thing.
Debra's right - remove the avoids from the house. I gave away all my Christmas and birthday chocolate except one box. That one box is out of date and I don't even like them but they've been calling to me. I'm going to throw them down the chute as soon as I've posted this!
As for obsessing, I never found a solution. I suppose that's a nonnie thing. We know we're doing something unhealthy and we still do it, don't we? It's as though our bodies tell our brains "stop nagging for crying out loud - I deserve a break!" and bang go the good resolutions. One thing I have noticed about obsessing is that the more compliant I am, the easier it is not to obsess. Maybe I'm just transferring my obsessions from whatever project to doing the BTD the best I can, but at least that's a healthy obsession!
I wish you all the very best. God bless.
Quoted from TJIt can't hurt you to try the Gatherer diet, if that's what you're leaning toward. Give it a shot! One of its focuses is on helping people with insulin resistance. Once you get down to your optimal weight, perhaps you can re-evaluate if you want to try the Explorer diet, or stick with the Gatherer diet.
I want to make sure posters understand that I have never to my knowledge had Candida, but I do understand the intent of the Candida advice is based on what is known from Candida in parallel about sugar's effect.
I did make an enourmous batch of my favorite O-Nonnie Sautee. I brown fresh grass fed, 98% fat free ground longhorn beef in processed olive oil at a temperature below smoke point then I sprinkle on turmeric and tarragon, in my food processor I chop together shredded uncooked kale leaves and red pepper with a few walnuts and pecans and add it to the browned beef. I let it sautee until the kale bits are cooked, but still bright green. I ALWAYS feel good after a meal of this. I can't explain it, but I feel good when I eat this.
Anyway, I made enough to last the week per Debra's suggestion.
I started to swim every morning for about 10 days. Unfortunately some major projects in very, very short time periods came at work and all bets were off because I tend to obsess on a project until completion.
And as far as Genotype, I'm still resisting the testing conclusions that I'm an Explorer. I feel more confident that I'm a Gatherer. There are several measurements like jaw angle and leg/torso measurements I made myself which I don't trust. But I do know it's one of those two GenoTypes. None of the others make sense with me.
