Hi, Lovelies. As I explained in my last video *bing!* Um, I am going on the Candida diet in an attempt to hopefully cure my digestive issues and also my chronic fatigue which I would very much like gone Currently, I would say that my energy levels are maybe a three or four Also I can’t put any starches into my stomach so fingers crossed by the New Year, I would be maybe Eight or nine. I’m not ,sort of, expecting to be a Paralympian, but I’m planning on one day being a mother and I need energy for that How can I do that with just three good hours of energy a day? I mean I can’t so What is the Candida diet? it’s a way of fighting back a Candida overgrowth, what is candidate? Another excellent question! It’s a yeast that lives inside your guts. There’s a balance of good bacteria and then the bad bacteria but various different things can stop the good Bacteria which allows the bad ones to *whaaa* Also bad Bacteria is there for a reason It does help with your digestion and breaking stuff down Picture a T-Rex Something like Mr.. Burns Also, when my arms didn’t work for that year and a half and they were all completely paralysed I had to hold them like this. No, picture something else scary hey, yeah, okay the student loans company come back and they want all of In one go you gotta pay it all back right now. On to the diet! So week one *bell* that means four days of just vegetable broth and then three days of some lovely steamed vegetables. Only. Steamed.Vegetables. And the one thing you can drink is water. That’s it. Slight issue, since I currently live on diet coke Haah.Hah.Heh.HUH. Don’t judge me. I know it is quite awful. It’s awful. I hated fizzy drinks when I was child But then I got ill and my doctor told me that it was quite a good way to get some energy and keep going. Also, diet Coke is amazing at stopping you from feeling sick it just works wonders on Nausea, so I have drunk a lot of it. (in my life) I should have bought shirts (?). Also I don’t really absorb my food Due to Candida. So I don’t get that kind of energy boost so we then start Reintroducing other foods that are allowed on diet There are a lot of things that are not left most of these things I can’t currently eat anyway, so That’s fine. I’m pretty happy with that I’m sure that other people would find that really really hard. Please, if you’re kind of finding this really interesting like oh Maybe I’ve got that please go and see your doctor Don’t just listen to me. I have a film degree. Not a medical one. Alright, I could tell you anything you like about old films but… Not about your own body. So things to avoid: Sugars Now,that’s the kind of refined powdered kind – maybe agave honey molasses chocolate sweets fruit juices Oh, alcohol! No alcohol. No,no,no.But I can’t drink anyway so… Grains and glutenus foods: Bread,pasta, Oats, rice, corn,spealt,buckwheat I’m just doing the same grain thing here because I don’t know what Buckwheat or why–oh, Popcorn! Next thing root vegetables. If it grows into the ground it’s a no on the counter to diet peas Beans anything that kind of falls into those categories when it comes to meat. It’s the kind of processed Pork you’re not allowed any pork. Drinks:That’s tea, or coffee sweet soft drinks fizzy drinks Energy drinks, there’s no dairy.No cheese No cream no whey products fruit dried fruit canned fruit fresh fruit. In terms of fruit I Currently can’t eat fresh stuff the sweet stuff, but I do love berries But the foods that I currently do eat But won’t be able to on this special new diet include fish. All. FIsh. with the exceptions of Wild Salmon and Sardines, but everything including shellfish How am I supposed to live without prawns? Absolute madness other things not allowed on the counter diet that I currently eat includes soy products also no chickpeas cuz I love when you go to an Indian restaurant and Make if you have an onion Bhaji I can’t eat loads of them, but that is the only Buttered fried product I can currently eat three months I mean–No diet coke? I mean I might just like Could evem die without diet coke which probably is a slight indication of how addicted I am also Nuts Cashews peanuts and pistachios, but other types of nuts Mushrooms I love mushrooms. I mean I can eat mushrooms. Maybe three times a day No condiments, so that’s no Vinegars even Except the Apple Cider vinegar. What the hell am I going to eat? Genuinely what am I going to eat? Join me on this journey and and tune in next time to see if what I have in fact worked out what I can eat Because there’s got to be something.
