My Dieting Experience.

So due to some health problems I've been having for the last couples years, I've decided to try a diet. I have never dieted in the past and I never realized how difficult it really is! After discussing my symptoms with a friend and hearing about the diet she is on. I decided to give it a try!
Candida Diet entails:
Veggies (except corn, potatoes, and carrots)
Meat-chicken, beef, turkey, eggs, etc.
Nuts and Seeds (except peanuts)
Brown Rice and Non-Glutinous Grains
Green Tea and other Herbal Teas
Lemons and Limes
Apple (only every other day)
And that's it!

So if you notice, I'm not eating any sugar, fruit, starch, gluten, dairy, and coffee.

So far I've been doing this diet just under a week (5 days to be exact) and in the short amount of time I've had better: Sleep, Skin, Nails, Digestion, Energy, and No Headaches!

Here are a couple photos of some dishes I've made that follow my dieting needs:

Tomato, Cucumber, Onion Salad

Homemade Chicken Cobb Salad with Olive Oil Dressing

It's still a struggle everyday to avoid the sugary fattening foods, but I know now that the rewards of eating healthy are pretty awesome. I'll keep you posted on my dieting journey and if I remember, I'll post more photos of the yummy dishes I make!
