Day 9, skipped Day 8 it was just too crazy a day

Weight: 198

Health Status: Hands continue to be red under the surface, but skin is greatly healed, skin condition itself is much better! Patch at the back of the leg is essentially gone. Skin on the face has been bad for the past two days despite my sticking very rigidly to the diet. I have read that the Yeast will cause a reaction in your body as a craving for something to feed on, thus the cravings for sweets. I have had the thought that maybe my body is craving the cortisone ointment I have used for years, so in spite of the break out I am avoiding the use of cortisone. Stomach condition is improving.

Emotional Status: Slightly overwhelmed and agitated. Some anxiety and very nervous and uneasy. I am not sure if this is due to the yeast or not, but I have read that anxiety and depression can be a result of the yeast, so I am noting.


1 Meal- too rushed to juice today: 1 small cucumber sliced with 1 small bell pepper 3 tbsp of homemade hummus

2 Meal- 4 lettuce tacos= 4 leafs from large Romaine lettuce, 4 tablespoons of scrambled ground beef, mixture of sliced tomato, bell pepper, onion, fresh cilantro, 1 small crumbling of shredded cheese, 1 tsp of sour cream. The cheese is a cheat as you should avoid aged foods to avoid molds.
Lay the lettuce leaf on the plate, layer in cheese, meat, veggies, top with sour cream and sprinkle with salt.

2 Snack- 1 Dan Active Pro Biotic drink

Supplements: 2 Accu Flora pro biotic supplements, 3 Omega 3 Fish Oils 1000mg, 4 Cinnamon capsules 500mg, 1 Vitamin E 500mg, 3 tbsp coconut oil.


Day 7

Weight: 200.5

Health Status: Hands are healing the skin condition is much better, not rough or dry and not itchy. Scalp is almost healed completely. Patch on the back of the leg are healing. Stomach continues to be bloated due to continued constipation issues.

Emotional Status: Not feeling well today. Emotional and edgy. I am wondering about this Candida die off I saw on a website. The website didn't indicate what the symptoms are, only that you will go through it. I need to do more research on that.


1 Meal- juice 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 1 small handful of parsley, 1 small cucumber, 1 small ginger root chunk, 1 clove of raw garlic

1 snack- 6 chicken nuggets fried in peanut oil

2 Meal-spaghetti salad .....I know it sounds gross, but it was good! 1 cup of spaghetti sauce with ground beef over 1/4 head of iceberg lettuce, 1 slice of onion diced up, 4 small chunks of cheese shredded.

2 snack- apple & Dan Active Pro Biotic drink

Supplements: 3 Omega 3 Fish Oil Capsules 1000mg, 4 Cinnamon 500mg capsules, 2 Accu Flora pro biotics, 3 tbsp coconut oil, 1 Dan Active Pro Biotic drink

Throughout the day I drink large amounts of water and 2-3 cups of hot green tea, first thing in the morning I have a cup of hot water with lemon juice.


Day 6

Weight: 200.5

Health Status: Hands are improving greatly, only the deepest sores remain and they are healing. I have seen a drastic improvement over this past week. Patches on the inside of the arm are gone, the patch on the back of the leg is still rashy and dry. Stomach is bloated today, having some issues with constipation and I am not sure why with all the veggies I have been eating! The scalp is almost healed completely, a huge improvement in the past day.

Emotional Status: Upbeat and optimistic. I am seeing improvements in my condition so it has me determined. It has made my will power stronger. Today my son offered me M&M's and I refused, he continued to insist and I was able to resist.... that is not typical. I think given my lack of nutritional knowledge, my hope is that I am doing this right! My schedule has been off today so I have been a little anxious about my eating.


1 Meal - Chicken Strips Salad at Chick-Fil-A, I did drizzle some Light Italian dressing on top, but not much at all. Had I known the amount of sugar in it, I would have chosen something else.

2 Meal- 1 small cucumber, 1 small bell pepper, 5 tablespoons of homemade hummus

2 Snack- 1 Dan Active Pro-Biotic drink


4 Cinnamon capsules 500mg, 2 Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules 1000mg, 2 Accu Flora pro biotic supplements, 1 Dan Active Pro-Biotic drink

Day 5

Weight: 199 lbs

Health Status: Fingers and hands are healing some, still somewhat raw in spots where the deepest irritation is, however, not as itchy tonight. Patches on the inside of my arms and back of the leg are continuing to improve. Face is improved greatly and complexion is improving. Scalp is still irritated in some spots, but seems to be improving some.

Emotional Status: Tired! Not from the diet though :) I am somewhat apprehensive that I am not covering all I need to do kill the yeast. One of the issues is at this time of the year some of the vegetables are not as readily available. I don't think I am juicing enough during the day....I have to do more research.

*****Note a couple of things I haven't mentioned yet. Yeast in your body feeds on sugar, vinegar, carbs. These are the big items to avoid! Bread, potato, pasta, fruits, vinegar condiments such as salad dressing, pickles, etc...

Day 4

Weight: 201 waking weight today, I did not weigh myself anymore through the day because I don't want to be obsessed with weight.

Health Status: Hands are less raw, still dry and slightly itchy today probably from being dry. Rashes under the arm from elbow to underarm seem to be getting better, patch on the back of the left leg has improved greatly. Scalp is still rashy and weepy in spots on the left side. Skin on the face is much better, complexion is improving. Stomach continues to be less bloated.

Emotional Status: Not feeling well today! Late this afternoon I had a bad headache and nausea, I had to lay down and rest for about an hour. I have been overly agitated today, easily angered.


1 Meal: Breakfast drink I concocted: 2 cups of tomato juice (juiced yesterday) mixed with the juice from 2 stalks of celery, 1 small handful of parsley, 1 small chunk of ginger root, 2 raw garlic cloves, 4 small hand fulls of kale

1 Snack: 2 small bell peppers with 3 tablespoons of homemade hummus.

2 Meal: 1 small steak 2 cups of steamed broccoli and yellow squash, 1 cup of a mix of peas, string beans, tomatos, okra.

2 Snack: Dan Active Pro Biotic drink

Through the day I drink up to 6 glasses of water, 2 cups of hot green tea, and I start my day with a cup of hot water and lemon juice.

Supplements: 4 Cinnamon capsules 500mg, 4 Omega 3 Fish Oil 1000mg, 2 AccuFlora pro biotic supplements, 1 Vitamin E 1000mg, 1 Dan Active Pro Biotic drink, 3 tablespoons of Coconut Oil

One thing that I have realized is that today I have had no cravings for bread or sugar. In the past 3 days I have eaten a small amount of peanut butter. But today I haven't had any need for that.

Thoughts and Recipes

Just a short blog about things I have forgotten to mention and to also provide some recipes. I am going to be providing recipes only if I came up with them myself to avoid copying someone else's ideas. One of the things I have found is that it is actually hard to find recipes without buying some one's book. The book I have purchased has been back ordered, but I don't want to lose my momentum so I am researching the vegetables and then combining them together to get a (hopefully) desired result. Which is KILLING Candida and making me healthier!

So one thing I haven't mentioned in my daily log, I just forgot, is my very first drink of the morning. I heat a coffee cup of plain water and slice a 1/4 inch section of lemon, squeeze the lemon juice into the hot water and just drop in the lemon slice so the oils from the rind are steeped in the water. Drink while hot! This will gently detox your liver.

My breakfast drink:

3 medium tomatos
2 stalks of celery
2 raw garlic cloves
1 small handful of parsley
1/2 in chunk of ginger root
4 small handfuls of Kale
1 small cucumber

juice all this together!

I am going to tell you something no one told me and I didn't see anywhere. Stir your juice! I didn't read that anywhere and the first time I juice I get a huge swallow of ginger root juice right on top!

Now why is this good?

Tomato is rich in Vitamin A & C and has a great antioxidant Lycopene

Celery is high in Calcium and Vitamin C, a diuretic, and lowers blood pressure

Garlic is a natural antibiotic, great cholesterol reducing properties, it boost your natural killing cells which combat toxins in the body

Kale high in Vitamin A and Beta carotene, a natural cancer fighter

Ginger root aids in digestion, circulation, and pain control

Parsley Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and a natural cancer fighter

Cucumber, Vitamin C, Silica, Magnesium, Potassium, lowers blood pressure

Final thought! I took 3 tablespoons of solid coconut oil and places in a small dish then placed it in the sun, with in 5 minutes it was liquid. I drank it all at once to get it over with :) The taste wasn't so bad it tasted oily (obviously) with a hint of the coconut flavor. Not something I would want to do forever, but willing to try to see if it will indeed kill the yeast!
