So i';m on day 15...and thus far been doing pretty good...a few very minor transgressions(stuff like marinade).

Eating lots of greeens but because of the lack of carbs my energy level is down. i normally work out every other night and i'm curioius what i can eat to give me a healthy boost before i go to the gym(i.e the chicken and salad i had for lunch is doing zippo!).

I'm committed to making 30 days as i am already seeing improvement in the headaches i have been complaining about for months. But you need energy to run 2 miles and lift weights. Thoughts?

Broccoli, green beans, any green vegetable!

Plus what kitty said! ( though you shouldn't load up too heavily on fats before exercising )

The things you guys list of course make sense for the diet but do little for me to give me any energy source for a workout. Peanut Butter would be a good one but i assume you mean natural no sugar added?

Seems like any green vegetable (or maybe squash) would have enough carb content to help out.
Shucks!

Yeah, peanut butter is not a really good choice. It is moldy.

Some people - I was one of them - get energy from a combo of malic acid and magnesium. But check it out slowly at first, 'cause some have reported getting tired from this.

Flower pollen also gave me good energy.

I'd say when you feel like you're about to "crash" or "cave", have something on hand that isn't as sinful or horrible as cookies and ice cream.

How about some complex grains? Brown rice, Quinoa...

I can't survive without carbs. I don't have any energy either and I do need them to help maintain the hypoglycemia. Brown rice is my life saver. If you don't go overboard, I think it's okay.

Make a giant pot and stick it in the fridge.

If you're staying away from grains, what about peas? Peas are the starchiest vegetable.

I was told by a friend who is very knowledgeable on yeast that potatoes are ok! Maybe google that...be sure they are organic, and I personally like the red ones best.

I am watching my diet in this regard and had a red potatoe yesterday. I feel no effects from it today...and it was yummy!

Oh yeah, and Kefir...it is similar to yogurt. Buy the plain kind, and maybe blend it up with some strawberries and a little Stevia.

Potatoes are not good for yeast diets. If I'm not mistaken, sweet potatoes are actually safer than the white ones.

Red would be better than white! I think there are also other colors of potatoes that have fewer carbs... You would have to research that.

Dave.. You're doing a really good thing by being very strict. You can relax LATER.

Good job! [Smile]

Lifting weights every other night and now adding running. Whoo hooo you go DaveNJ.

Exercising is THE thing that put me over the top. I have been off abx and symptom free since April 2009 (almost one year).

Everyone above shared good stuff.

As for energy, I think these things helped me too--getting enough sleep every night and taking a nap if I was tired. Also drinking lots of water--keeping hydrated. One other thing, limiting my time around people that were negative or "zapped" my energy.

I don't have a yeast problem and I eat potatoes and rice.

I eat any veggie, and some fruit(fresh).

I make sure I get plenty of protein and avoid gluten, dairy, processed sugars and foods including condiments that contain sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

I think all the great probiotics help alot.

Thanks gang....yes i agree excerise is needed. i have been on a regular routine for a year now. Can't say it has healed me but it has kept me sane..

i will tell everyone that at point of DX(sept 2008) i was shuffling to walk....now in best shape since i was 25(now 46)...still not healed 100% though.

The yeast diet means i am doing everything humanly possible to get well. Still have some light brain fog and some jitters in my CNS(palps mostly.

Again...thanks for the input.

When you stay carb free for a while, your body learns to gets it's energy from protein and fats. I used to LIVE OFF of Hard boiled eggs. And nuts - raw almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts.. I'd have one or both and the 'cravings' would go away (and my energy levels were good).

No more caving!! [Big Grin]

Julie,

as always thanks...the headaches are 95% resolved....i feel human again. I agree with the nuts things...Almonds have been a live saver thus far.

Here is one more question...are Cheerios allowed? the few references i found on the web said they were okay...thoughts?

Dave

Eizekel bagels and sprouted whole grain bread. Also spelt bread is okay on yeast free diet. Plain Kefir is also an immune booster and really good energy booster.

Parasite cleansing is probably a good idea because it holds the yeast in check for a source of food.

When you get rid of the parasites the yeast will be much easier to get rid of.

Cheerios are on the lower end of carb counts, but at this point I'd stay away.

So glad you're feeling better!! [woohoo]

I agree.. stay away from them for now. Maybe you could have some in another month. Don't want to spoil a good thing!

Too bad you didn't post this in Medical so many more could be benefitting from your information and success. They usually ignore what I say about yeast!! [Wink]
