Diet Report #3

Well. It turns out, people on the Internet are misinformed…again! Shock and awe!

Now that I have two books on yeast overgrowth, these books tell me that anything with corn in it is BAD, mmkay?

So I have to ditch the corn tortilla crackers, and the taco shells completely, and read all labels for any corn ingredients. Apparently, corn easily succumbs to mold, and it is one of the most common of food allergens, because corn in many forms is in virtually everything we eat every day. Therefore, exposing oneself to the same food every day can produce an allergic reaction that ranges anywhere from headaches to indigestion to constipation/diarrhea.
So on the advice of two books, I’m omitting corn while on this diet.

The two books I bought are:

Chronic Candidiasis and The Yeast Connection Cookbook.

I tried eating shrimp today and now I have a headache and I felt like my blood sugar got wonky. I ate the shrimp with broccoli and asparagus, and I had lime infused sparkling water to drink.
Since I’ve not had a problem with the water or broccoli, I’m going to narrow it down to shrimp and/or asparagus.
So I’ll give the asparagus another whirl, but I’m omitting all shelfish for now.

Needless to say, this is turning into a bit more than a sugar-free/yeast-free diet. It’s now become a full-blown Find The Allergens diet on top of it.

That’s okay though. I like puzzles.
