November 24, day 8

Had a consult with my naturopath today. Here are the modifications to my current no sugar/dairy/gluten regime: Take 6-10 garlic capsules per day, take 6 probiotics per day, limit myself to 1 pc of fruit per day. I can have goat cheese. She said that since for me, sugar is the #1 bad-ass, if I have to slip some dairy/wheat in there to get by, then that's what I need to do. And my ultimate goal is 6 MONTHS (*gulp*) on the plan, since I have some pretty hardcore symptoms of candida overgrowth.., (Biggest one is the extreme underarm itching I've struggled with for 2 years. I've tried everything possible to make it go away on my own.) But my immediate goal needs to be to make it to Christmas, and then if I must indulge in sweets, to try not to go overboard. Yeah, we'll see. But then right back on that wagon. (Of course, the more sugar I eat over the holidays, then the longer I'm going to have to stay on this plan. Bugger.)
