Mrs Ricky is on a "candida diet"…..
After going to the health shop and being told to cut down on yeast and a few other things.Posted 3 years ago
£50 for an allergy yes and it tells you exactly what you are lacking and what you are allergic to,she wants me to go but iff I’m honest I would rather not know,I know I can’t eat some things (all the good things) so the £50 will go towards a reverb.
Anyone been for an allergi test,is it worth it???coolhandlukeSubscriber
I’m on the Wetherpooms diet mid week for at least 3 days and 2 nights a week
Fruit in the day, keep hydrated
1 bottle of Moretti 660ml befor the evening meal
1 double chicken breast burger with lashings of tommy K
Eat about half the chips with plenty of salt and vinegar
1 pint of Tubourg
Sometimes 1 more Moretti. Sometimes not.
Lost 10KG in the last 10 weeks on average.
Oh, I also walk about 7 miles a day with work..and also half heatedly do one insanity workout in the hotel room. Cost coffee for breaks sometimes with a protein shake but more often than not I don’t bother.
Weekends are filled with curry and too much beer usually
I’ve found a diet I like, can stick to and loose weight with.
Stick your fad diet. Choose one you can stick to. I am the lightest I’ve ever been.Posted 3 years agoCougarSubscriber
I just Googled the diet. On the first page of hits, the vast majority of hits are variations on “why the candida diet is a load of pish.”
I’d suggest she stops listening to salesmen in health food shops, and starts eating some food. If you do want to take an allergy test, go to a doctor rather than some pseudo-scientific quack who will take your money to tell you that you’re allergic to everything they don’t sell (though if you were allergic to food you’d probably have noticed by now, anaphylactic shock is fun for all the family).
That’ll be £50, thanks.Posted 3 years agoIHNMember
The insanity workout is incredible; it’s found a way, by exercising really, really hard in both a cardio and weight resistance sense, for only 45 minutes a day, for only two months, to get you to acheive a noticeable difference in your fitness, weight and musculature.
It’s mind-blowing stuff.Posted 3 years agoahwilesSubscriber
I am not a doctor.
the premise of the Candida diet is not that one has a food allergy, but that a crappy diet + course of antibiotics has led to an unusual and unwanted balance of bacteria / fungi (yeast, basically) in your gut – and that this can affect the way you feel.
summary of the diet: lay off the refined carbs to starve out the yeast. if you’re being extra harsh on yourself you can try avoiding too much fruit.
it’s not a weight loss diet, it’s a ‘so you want to stop feeling crap all the time?’ diet.
it might well all just be rubbish, but it’s a simple concept and course of action. No buying of stuff required.
in practice it means lots of veg and beans – isn’t that similar to the idave diet?
beans on toast for breakfast, in.
sugar-coated chocolate-pops, and half a litre of oj, out.Posted 3 years agoFerris-BeullerMember
This isn’t BS….it’s a very real problem for a lot of people.
How do i know? The Mrs is a scientist specialising in this area. Expect to see a lot more people with this kind of problem along with auto immune diseases…. You have the absurd amount of antibiotics we are given to blame along with poor food choices to blame etc.
Ricky1, support your other half, i believe in extreme cases it can be quite debilitating, in the more common cases its like that ‘brain fog’ and tiredness you get after a massive sandwich!
See how she gets on.Posted 3 years agowwaswasSubscriber
Frankly there is world of difference between an allergy test done by medical trained personel and someone in health food shop which was the case in the OP.
Also in their ability to deal with a case of anaphylaxis should the person being tested prove to be particularly allergic to whatever’s being waved at them.Posted 3 years ago
