Thread: Need help tweaking my diet...

    @chia...According to my naturopath my stool sample didn't show a yeast overgrowth but I do I have an IgG reaction to yeast. I am currently taking an orthobiotic prescribed by my naturopath to help repopulate my system with the missing beneficial bacteria and I am taking Biocidin to fight the overgrowth of Bacillus.

    I have researched Candida extensively, and would love to go on an anti-candida diet, the problem is I am top level athlete, and spend almost half the day exercising, on top of that I need to gain at least 10 pounds of muscle to raise my game to the next level. From my understanding Candida diets only allow meats and veggies, and discourage the consumption of nuts, fruits, etc. Coconut is allowed though. Is there a limit to how much coconut products I could eat? Could I use coconut similar to the way people use milk in GOMAD, getting in at least 2500 calories from coconut products, plus the added meats, and veggies? Or is that counter productive to my goals, seeing as how coconut is used by many to lose weight?

    Thanks.

    I heard coconut was good for these things (bacteria, viruses). You should experiment with it and eat as much as you want. Sure coconut helps lose weight, but I don't think it's gonna make you lose muscle. If anything, it will prevent you from gaining fat as you gain the muscle.

    just a thought.. but coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid so it goes directly to your liver and gets burned like a carb...I would eat a few spoonfuls of this before and after workouts too... AND, eat a few avacados per day.. Yes, a fruit, but little if any sugar..... high, good fats....

    MCT turn into ketones. It has nothing to do with carbs.

    How can you even call that a meal? I suggest eating cohesive food that actually tastes good.

    Oh trust me, I don't really consider it a meal either. Just a quick snack to meet my caloric needs. I know it's not completely paleo but I'm working on it.

    Anyways today I haven't touched a single fruit or grain, and my mood and anxiety issues are much improved, but I seem to have trouble digesting meals with a high protein/fat content. I get these really nasty rotten smelling farts, they are very deadly and toxic. Could be because of my disbyosis.

    Quick question, can I eat canned seafood such as salmon canned and fresh and tuna everyday. Sometimes when I am in a rush I find it easy to just grab a can of tuna. Or is there a problem with mercury poisoning?

    You are eating quite frequtnly. Maybe your digestive system is in overdrive and going crazy due to the almost constant need to be working. Could you try going to 3 meals a day - bigger meals of course. i say lose the quinoa and buckwheat. use sweet potatoes. no more peanuts! get teh light canned tuna. it is not nearly as bad as eating swordfish, for example.

    I think you're on to something here...last week I only ate three meals a day and my digestive system felt very relaxed. Only problem is I need about 3000 daily calories, which would make that 1000 calories per meal. I would sweat and feel shortness of breath after consuming such large meals, but it was satisfying. Still though, shortness of breath is some scary stuff especially if you have anxiety issues.

    Really? 1000-2000 calorie meals are not a problem here. Try it for a while. Maybe just not before training...

    However, after eating a shitload of coconut last night, I did feel short in breath. Not pleasant!

    Fish is fine, and I even suspect that mercury is a big scam. I would eat it everyday and see how I feel.

    I think quinoa might be too much for your digestive system to handle. I mean, half of the stuff usually comes out undigested for me...

    Even quinoa has to be fully fermented to make it edible. Back in my retard hippie food days I thought I was being oh so prudent soaking and sprouting my quinoa. Bahaha.
