rule nr. 1: stop eating sugar! or drinking sugar!sugar boost candida and throw guts out of balance! along with many other harmful effectswheat toast and wheat products: is the last thing you should eat, wheat conforms to pure sugar in your gut and have the same effect as sugar.. Coffee(coffeine) is a lacative, and you dont need that! try drinking only water for a couple of months! cleanse your system if that is too boring, try carbonated water…Stop eating grains! grains conform to sugar also.. Stop eating all forms of sugar. No candy. no honey or syrup.I know it is a challenge not eating grains or sugar! But do you want to be well? or have this forever? When you quit sugar and grain you will notice after some time - you loose weight as well.. If you can cut down on other carbs that is also good. like: all starch products from corn potatoes, rice and all forms of pasta. You dont have to stop eating fruit, but cut dowm, fruit has the same sugar content as soda, so fruit is candy once in a while.. Only drink water for some time... What is there to react to in water if you think about it ??? nothing..What you should eat:Eggs, all kinds of meat, all types of salads, nuts, berries: like strawberry, raspberry and so on, seeds, some fibers, whole fat milk products (with no added sugars),real butter(never margarine, it promotes inflammation!!can show you the science that prooves margarin made by humans cause inflammation- butter from a cow is natural), olive oil, vegetables (organic is best) coconut oil!! coconut oil soothes the tummy (contains fats that also exist in breast milk-good for the immune system in your gut) extra virgin coconut oil is the best... This diet has cured me.. and it makes sense, it is worth trying :)not saying its the cure for everybody, but it is MUCH healthier than wheat toast and candy! Want to help you and hope you take me seriously! hugs.

EHM, what doctors says that ketosis is necessarily a bad thing?? Ketones means your body mainly uses fat for energy (and produces its own glucose)... and as long as you are not hungry , you are not "starving" yourself.. i have ketones in my urin every day all day long, but never starve.. almost everybody have ketones in their urine in the morning before they eat.. it is not "dangerous" at all! But the body needs fat, dont forget that, quality sourses, not prosessed ####, I use real butter and coconut the most, and then som raw olive oil on salads..you can eat some bread and pasta if you really like it in moderation - but next time the doctors says something like that again - demand proof - and if the doctors look - they will not find science that says u need sugar to live (starches are the same as sugars after they are digested)doctors are really good in some areas - they know alot about ilnesses and medicines, but nutrition is a small part of the studies - at least here in norwayFor carbs i love vegetables, salad, tomatoes, cucumber, etc.. eat some berries (mostly raspberries - they are lowest in carbs) eat a little bit nuts almost every day.. i make my own low carb bread and crisp bread.. try to think balance... make my own cereal out of seeds, nuts, fibers..
What carbs do you eat? Only asking because I tried this diet (no sugar, white flour, wheat, pasta etc.) and ended up with ketones in my urine. The Dr. yelled at me and put my diagnosis down as ketosis due to starvation. I ate chicken, fish, fruits, lots of vegetables. So I added some pasta and gluten free bread back in. What do you eat for carbs?

The thing with low carb living - if you remember to eat enough fats! - is that it stabilises you at your normal "ment to be" weight. so if u are underweight you gain, overweight you loose... because it stabilises your hormones... so if cutting carbs will make you thinner or bigger its hard for me to say, but i would guess you gain.. but remember fats, i say again! people forget fats sometimes on low carb; try coconut oil everyday, i think it tastes wonderful.. to fry in or to make low carb sweets of...in stead of potatoes. try home made cauliflower mash! (poiled cauliflower mashes with a little butter, salt and pepper) I think it is soooo good ! my favrite, makes giving up potatoes OK :)in stead of wheat I sometimes use alternative flours so that i can still bake - witch i love: like flax seed meal, coconut meal, chia seed meal, almond meal, hazelnut meal.. u can still have bread on low carb if u make it yourself.. low carb bread have a lot of eggs.. but crisp bread is only made by seeds and fibers.. and tastes yum, send you the recipie?
I'm already 104 lbs & 5'7". The last thing I need to do is loose weight. I am trying to eat more protein, and have cut down on breads/pasta, and even more so on sugar. I've never drunk anything accept water, almond milk, and on rare occassion, pure cranberry juice (diluted with water & no sugar added). I cannot eat dairy at all. I was thinking of taking bread/pasta out of my diet altogether, but I'm afraid I'll lose more weight. And potatoes have never given me any problems. Sometimes egg yolks do. I'm glad to here this has worked for you. What type of recipes do you use for a wheat free diet?
