Hello, sorry that it was so hard for you. Maybe you can start it partly? From my experience I found out that the worst of the carbohydrates for us are bread and sugar. The worst for me were cereals with sugar. I suggest you at least cut off sugar and start use honey instead if you can. And I strongly suggest to start making yogurt. Watch how you feel. The book suggests to keep food diary, I believe that it is good idea, so you will see which products are good for you and which are not. I beleive that everyone of us is different and we react differently to the food products. For example according to the book we can eat almost all fruits and veg but it is not a case for me. More fibre fruits and veg have it worse for me. Maybe it is down to the fact that my small intestines are less than 2 m maybe something else. From the fruits I only eat one kind of fresh pears, only baked apples, only fresh strawberries, only cooked raspberries and strawberries ( i cook jam from them and honey to sweeten the yogurt as it is very sour), fresh satsumas or tangerines (not oranges for some reason) and ripe bananas. From veg only tomatoes, avocados, only one type of salad and cucumber. Friend of mine was thinking about the diet about 3 years and when finally started it he had such a great result but he has modified it. It is great if it works for him. He stopped eating sugar, dairy products, potatoes and meat. He eats grains, fish, veg and fruits. He eats a lot of soups what for example does not work for me as even cooked veg make me run to the bathroom, i cannot survive without meat and to be honest i am afraid to introduce grains back to my diet. Potatoes are very difficult to digest even for the healthy person so i would not recommend it at all. Good luck.
