…that’s how long I’ve been back on my special diet.
I chose to get back on this super restrictive diet even though Christmas was upon us.
I chose to be tempted but overcome the desire for cookies and cakes and sugary things.
I chose to eat only vegetables and meats and continue to choose it until I’m healthy again.
I am slowly healing my body from the inside out. Foods are so healing and yet some can be so destructive.
I choose the healing foods now.
My sons and I are all on the Anti-Candida diet & once we “graduate” out of the strict phase one of this diet, we’ll move into a lifelong lifestyle of eating more along the lines of gluten free and dairy free with very minimal sugar. (from fruits and honey and stevia)
I no longer feel like I’m depriving myself. Nor do I feel that way about my sons.
I’m no longer looking at the negative.
I’m not depriving my sons of eating junk food. How ridiculous was it for me to even think that way? Or for the people around me to think that way.
I’m blessing them with health. I’m giving them so much more.
And when you’re on a diet that allows so little, you find new uses for foods and find ways to make really fun and tasty dishes.
Oh… and a nice side benefit to it all… 12 pounds lost in 19 days.
If you have any questions about the Anti-Candida diet, please leave them in the comments section. I’ll be talking more about this topic, eating healthy, gluten free diets … etc.
