In October 2011, I had gotten sick. It was a 24 hour issue with my system. Labs showed I had too much yeast, Candida. So I searched and searched online. Candida Diet - this and that. It was quite a strict elimination diet. I understood what it meant and the benefits. I felt since this was a first time episode for me, I didn't need to do the 4 to 5 month suggestion. I read the Atkins Phase 1 (Induction) to remind me of the allowed foods and restrictions there (it had been seven years since 'doing' Atkins.
The refresher was great and I printed out the major do's and don'ts for the Candida diet and for Atkins Phase 1. DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a doctor or dietician, just an overweight person like most of America. I have done Atkins under Doctor's care before. Learned a lot with the monitoring, blood work, fitness, and weight loss with successful weight management. Please seek your doctor for your particular needs!
All (non-starchy) veggies were good-to-eat for both elimination diet plans. So, I bought some celery. Cleaned it. And started eating it! Immediately I could tell it was GREAT for your body! I even gave some to my oldest daughter who has had undiagnosed stomach pains... we've tried prunes and diet changes, you name it. Celery did her wonders too! I did a search for Celery and Digestive system and got an amazing article tat confirmed what I thought, immediately about this veggie wasn't excited for as a kid but was liking very much as an adult! This Article about celery confirmed my thoughts about celery while educating me more. What I got from it...
- You should eat 1 cup a day!
- Best for your digestive system!
- No matter your specific diet, Celery is "OK" to have!
I wish I was a Celery Farmers spokes person or had stock in it, because I think this is the NEXT BIG THING! Amazing benefits for your health and your body will thank you!
