After visiting a naturopath for the first time on April 18th, 2007, citing concerns of asthma, allergies and candidiasis, I have been sent home with a diet plan (Candida Cleanse), some 15-billion-live-cells Acidophillus capsules, and 3 bottles of some homeopathic general detox solution (?). I will have wasted my money and time if I don't do everything right, hence the concept of keeping a blog to help me track my progress and try not to cheat.
Good luck, lady!
It's been a long road already - after suffering from being overweight from age 20 onward, then plagued with chronic yeast infections from my mid-twenties on, I decided to make a change. I did a Candida Cleanse diet for 5 months and lost the first 40 pounds. The next 10 have come off VERY slowly over the next two years. My eating has become a little lax, however, and the infections are making a comeback! Back to the grind! Ultimately, I'd like to lose another 15-20 pounds and reduce my body fat to 23% from the current 29%.
No caffeine (oh, sniffle!)
No white or processed foods
No leavened breads
LOTS of vegetables, low-fat protein sources, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
I'm now 30, not all too happy about it, and I sit on my ass all day at work. I want to have an active lifestyle but need to commit more time.
I enjoy computers (that's PART of the problem!), animals, the outdoors, canoeing, biking, hiking, photography, music, film and learning.

Hallo my Jyessee!
I just wanted to say hola on your Spark Page. I think you're fabulous. And I think we will be so beyond fabulous at your wedding in September, that we could - quite possibly - be breaking some unknown law.
That is all.
