So..I'm trying to follow the yeast diet. No sugar / flour, etc.

I feel like I'm starving. Wasting away, really.

What do others here eat and how do you avoid yeast?

You can have Eizekel yeast free bread and bagels. I finally gave up with this diet and just decided I needed to eat because I was getting too weak. Not good when you are fighting these infections.

Others will disagree, but I think we need nourishment. I really don't think you can starve the yeast out. I also treated for parasites and worms, and that helped a lot.

I treated the yeast with diflucan and coconut oil and took probiotics and drank Kefir. Just my experience.

For me, a diet of meat and other protein (nuts, eggs, cheese, whole milk; fish would be great but I hate it so I don't eat it) and nonstarchy vegetables (the green ones and everything you put in salads, not potatoes and corn) keeps me filled up.

I also lost a lot of weight (on purpose; still have more to lose) on that diet, even though I was eating twice as many calories as when I tried eating low fat and low calorie with carbs.

If you are going to eat carbs, then eat whole grains so that the sugar enters your system more slowly due to the fiber and protein contained in the whole grain. Organic oatmeal with nuts, berries and stevia is good for breakfast. Quinoa is a grain that has complete protein in it and can be used in place of rice.

I eat protein every time I eat, and eat protein snacks a couple of times a day.

Smoothies of organic whole milk, unsweetened nut butter and strawberries or other fruit (with or without stevia) can be easy, appealing and filling, and they have lots of protein and fiber.

For easy lunch at work, I have used a can of organic soup mixed with a little can of organic chicken. I found those in my regular grocery stores.

I have just discovered the Whole Foods deli, which has all kinds of delicious, delightful, precooked food that I can eat on my diet.

You probably need more food.

Eat 6-10 servings of vegetables a day. Really. Eat all the veggies you want - of all colors. With every meal.

And some dark berries and tart apples. Be sure to get a supplement of Vitamin C as scurvy can result from lack of vitamin C / citrus fruit in the diet.

Many veggies also have Vitamin C: Red Bell Peppers are fabulous any time of the day.

Protein with every meal is important.

Non-gluten whole grains that are complex carbs: Amaranth, Quinoa, Red Quinoa, Buckwheat (really a legume), Wlld Rice (really a grass), Millet, Brown rice, Red Rice, Black Forbidden Rice also have good protein content and are very high in nutrients. (See the Lotus Foods site).

Look up books for:

A MEDITERRANEAN DIET (minus the wheat and wine).

Macrobiotic Diet

Moosewood Cookbooks; The Enchanted Broccoli Forest.

The Cure is in the Kitchen

A Spoonful of Ginger

Websites for: Christina Cooks (fabulously prepared meals ahtat happen to be vegan - and, if one wishes, meat can be added); Rick Bayless (Mexican); Cooking with Daisy (Puerto Rican food)

You can find their cooking shows on the PBS spin off station, CREATE.

find website for Bob's Red mill for all kinds of beans and non-gluten flours (to be used in moderation). Lentil flour can be added to some foods. Best to avoid most gluten free breads as they are still high on the glycemic index if the flour is finely ground.

Find a gluten-free falafel mix and bake it (www.vitacost.com has one). that would be primarily garbonzo and lentil "flour" (ground beans, that is).

----------

www.marysgonecrackers.com

Whole grain gluten-free crackers

==========

Tinkyada makes gluten-free pastas. In moderation, once in a while this can be wonderful. Trader Joe's also has brown rice PENNE, a type of pasta. Consider the glycemic index but if eating with lots of veggies and protein, this can work well.

I have made good biscuits, chocolate cake and pizza crust out of almond flour. You have to find a recipe for it and not just substitute for wheat flour, because it doesn't absorb liquid like regular flour.

Here's a good one that kept me from starving. That and lots of nuts and avocados.

Almond Bread

2 1/2C Almond Meal (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/3C Powdered Egg Whites
1 tsp Baking soda
3/4t Salt
1/2C Olive Oil (I didn't care for the olive oil but if you like it, use it)
3 Eggs
3/4C Water

Optional add walnuts (cut small) for a nut bread

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

1) Butter the bottom of a large loaf pan. You can butter around a little way up the side, but don't go too far. To make sure all goes well when taking the bread out of the pan, I like to put a piece of parchment paper in the bottom and then butter that as well.

2)Mix the dry ingredients together (almond meal, egg white, baking powder, salt).

3) Add the wet ingredients

Bake

Here's another one for Meat Loaf.

This recipe calls for 2lbs. ground beef. 1 cup chopped celery, 1 beaten egg, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp sea salt.

Combine all ingredients. Shape into a loaf and bake in a 9x5 pan at 350 for about an hour. This will serve six people.

Oops. Sorry! Here's the rest of it. And I forgot to say that I used to put almond butter on it after it was finished baking.

Pour batter into pan and bake about 40-50 minutes, until top is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.

Taken from another website...
"I have made the recipe above several times and love it. Having hot bread and butter was something I thought would never be an option for me again. I am thinking if trying some variations by adding zucchini and stevia to make a sweet bread, or cinnamon and stevia to make muffins. As soon as I have a rainy day I think I will experiment."

And yes, Lymetoo, that meatloaf is delicious! My husband said it looked funny but I was so hungry I didn't care. And it was really good, honest. [Smile]

As much meat and veggies you want! To give you an example tonight for dinner I had the following...

Gluten Free rice pasta, whole chicken breast, spinach and red onion with some diced garlic. This was enough food to feed two people.

Snacks
Walnuts
Spirluna Bar
Gluten free grains
Sugar free Yogurt (Erivan)
Small amount of fruits
Whey Protein shakes
Sausage (make sure it doesnt have nitrates or nitrites added)
