I know this is a stupid question.

But I had to ask. You're going to shake your finger at me-I know it.
My husband brought home a box of chocolates (they were a gift)..if I take a bunch of enzymes can I have some? I havent eaten any, but I'm lusting after them... ;-)

I don't think you are going to get much worse by having a little chocolate once. It's not toxic enough to cause you much harm if you eat rarely. This is different, though, if, for example, you get skin breakouts from it -- you can get a few more scars.

I went on a strict anti candida diet found in The Yeast Snydrome (for three weeks) then started adding potatoes and some pasta. That was two months ago. This chocolate this was the second time I've 'cheated' and had sugar during this time. (Yes, I just remembered-I had a half of a piece of cheesecake a couple of weeks ago at a birthday party and I SUFFERED the next day. Talk about hangover. The thing is, I really didn't crave that cheesecake. I felt like a moron being the only person in the room not eating it. Very awkward. At least I didn't eat the whole thing. As it was, I had a hangover most of the next day. It wasn't worth it. I had some of the chocolate and took some enzymes. No hangover, but I enjoyed my chicken parmagiana more than that.)
Now, sometimes when I eat a carb, like pasta, I sometimes feel sluggish. I never eat bread..well, I had a veggie pita sandwich this weekend, but that's an exception. But my carbs consist of pasta, potatoes and sometimes oatmeal. I've just started trying the food combination thing but I guess that's a whole new topic?? And thanks again for this board!!

Your carbs are some of the worst types (not couting refined ones). Check out this article.



Re: Very interesting article. Ketones?

Well, I guess that explains why I feel better on an extremely low carb diet.

I heard back in the 70s that ketones were bad for your kidneys so the low carb diet should be temporary and you should drink a lot of water to flush out the ketones. What do you know of this?

This is very different information. Thank goodness our cells can readjust when we correct our diet.
Thanks for that article. Very interesting. It sounds like insulin affects our bodies in enormous ways. I liked the info about athletic training re carbs and fats.
Thanks
Trish

Hi, Trish.

You have never seen me recommend the anticandida diet in The Yeast Syndrome--although I used it in the beginning of my learning about this condition. John Trowbridge is a friend of mine & I have told him many times of the advantages of the PWFD for this condition.

Your story is an example of the complexity of our "eating culture" (Eating is a lot more complex than just supplying nutrients to our bodyminds.)

Until you can do the PWFD, for a couple of weeks, you will not begin to know if it is important for you.

Walt
