Moving in the right direction... albeit slowly.

I had SO hoped that the steak day would have undone the damage of Friday night, however I only had about a pound loss (between the scales), but at least there was a loss, leaving me with 5 pounds I really want to shake. It's doable. I'm sure those wings are still kicking my ass. :)  I'm just tired and I fear I may have a candida overgrowth which would account for the cravings. Not a shocker given I was on anti-biotics for 3 weeks. I did take pro-biotics, but perhaps not enough. I've forgotten to take them the past week. I'll get back to that.

Okay, enough about me...


I love this protocol. :)

Would you want to do an apple/cheese day, and then another steak day? Just to keep the scale moving?

How do you know if you have a candida overgrowth? Does this make you have cravings? What sort of cravings? What makes you get a candida overgrowth?

Thank you for the shout-out, friend!

love to you-

More than a day at above LIW was part of my problem stabilizing I think... do you do multiple steak days? Up the protein in general? The apple/cheese day LD is talking about?

Interesting about the candida. The cleanse I did was gross, but I think effective... couldnt hurt!

how do you do a candida cleanse?

I sis a three week cleanse that had dropps (3 different kinds) that you mixed with water twice a day, and then a fiber type sludge that you drank in the morning. It really got things going the first couple of days but then settled down. I bought mine at WHole Foods for about $35, cant remember the brand!
