Clean Gut by Alejandro Junger MD (2013): What to eat and foods to avoid
I have never tasted anything this awful in my life. Hi Jenny, Thank you for whole wheat bread recipe. I have never made a yeasted bread before and was pretty certain my first effort would fail. And, the lunches would be much more practical time wise and ingredient wise for myself and family to eat for dinner. I do agree with you on this recipe…it is fabulous!!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Or do you have a suggestion for a different recipe? Thanks for the info. So glad you made it for only one loaf. So many receipts you have to make 2 loaves. Homemade bread does not keep as well are store-bought. I keep mine wrapped in foil, never plastic, and refrigerate it after the 2nd day. It lasts for about 5 days for me. This is the second loaf of bread I have attempted to make…ever. Light, delicious, lovely tanning on the top of the loaf after baking I tented it after 15 minutes, as mentioned , slices very well.

I enjoyed the humor at the end of the video! Kept me in good spirits as I was working this dough. Have added this to my recipe stash! Dear Jenny, My dear my husband started making your bread at Christmas time. He makes a load almost every other day and your rolls. I am not a bread eater, and you have now made me one.

It is to die for. We eat it for snack, for dessert with a drizzle of honey rubbed into butter, and then cinnamon over it. Honestly, never had anything like it. My mom loved bread and she just recently passed away. Curious question, have you ever been able to do a nutritional value on your recipes? If any at least, Thank you so much. Is there a way to make either the white or wheat bread not so dense to be more like store bought.

I like this recipe super easy.. My husband makes this bread almost daily. He said to have an egg at room temperature-note I always see an egg in a little cup by the stove daily. Milk needs to be not too hot and not too cold. The temperature is what she states it needs to be. I hear him putting it in the microwave. He uses a digital thermometer for The yeast-depending in which one you use, is the temp that she states. My husband uses like a Tablespoon at a time at the end of the and constantly scrap the edges.

Stops when it is sticky. I will tell you, you wont go back to store bought bread. Give it a try. Can you tell me where I may purchase that super dark bread pan used here in the recipe. This was absolutely wonderful! I was so excited to try it, I forgot to heat the milk. I have a home economics degree and taught cooking. I know better; just in a hurry. When I realized it, I immediately made another loaf with no errors.

By the time it was time to bake the bread, both loaves had risen correctly. I baked both and we enjoyed one and I froze one for later. My husband and I both enjoyed the bread. It was indeed the easiest and quickest yeast bread I have ever made. I found your white bread recipe as well and look forward to trying it, too.

The flavor of this delicious recipe is unmatched! Such a simple recipe yet amazing results. Thank you so so much for sharing this with us! I was wakened with a kiss from my husband who said he had a most delicious breakfast of a slice of this bread which I made yesterday with butter, peanut butter and an orange. What an easy and simple way to please a husband!

This was my first time to ever make bread and you made it easy. Your instructions were easy to follow and the bread came out awesome. Well, you have a ton of comments here so this is nothing new, but I had to say thank you! I have been looking for a whole wheat bread recipe that would perform consistently and I am grateful for yours! After many failed attempts with other recipes, this one was perfect the very first time.

Thank you for sharing. I also have to share my appreciation for the absence of ads on your site. This makes the site so much easier to use than other food blogs now, which have so many ads that the sitse can barely load and things keep popping up! Your choice to skip the ad revenue is much appreciated. Your site is a great offering and I will continue to explore now that I have found you!

To other readers, I used the ivory whole wheat flour for the 2 Cups and regular bread flour for the rest and it was great. This is the best wheat bread I have ever had, I used only honey,mixed into heated milk, love this bread texture, absolutely perfect, thanks again! Thanks for the tip on mixing the honey in the milk. I never thought of that. I do agree with you on this recipe…it is fabulous!! I am constantly looking for diabetic friendly recipes for my fiance.

This one is perfect!! Though I kneaded the dough by hand, I followed this recipe pretty much as is — foil tent and all. I had to vary the rising times though — the 10minute rest time in my case I made about 30minutes, and the final 30min rise had to be closer to 45 minutes for me. Jenny, this is my go to bread. I make it about twice a week. I got a KitchenAid mixer for Christmas and immediately wanted to try bread. It is so easy to make and tastes delicious!!

I cannot WAIT to try all these other breads. Thank you for sharing these wonderful recipes! I fooled around with whole wheat off and on. I have a really large Kitchenaid — so large that I have to double the recipe. This versatile recipe gives me a loaf and some rolls! I have to bake bread for my family at least times a week and this recipe has made it enjoyable.

I have tried a few of your recipes and they are guaranteed gold, thank you so much for doing this. You can heat the milk slightly on the stove, very low. Or, in the microwave for short increments until warm. Test with a thermometer. If too hot, then cool until proper temperature. Kind of a nasty comment … did you even try the recipe?

Look at your own computer before blaming othrrs. Debra, I had the same problem. When I clicked to see the recipe on the screen, I right clicked it then the printing screen showed and I just hit print and it came out. I had the blank page when I went to print too, I closed it out tried again and it was good to go. This is my first time to try this recipe but I am excited! Thank you for sharing it! There is absolutely no issue with the PDF file. Btw, why would you even want to print it out when Jenny has explained it in such a simple and easy manner that even my grade 4 son can easily memorize?

Way to go Jenny! All of us readers loved your awesome simple recipe!! Good Lord Girl, tripped onto your youtube a couple of weeks back and all I can say is: Sure wish I were your favourite neighbour.

Hope your family knows and appreciates just how darned lucky they are to have you. Have a Polish friend that used to make me Kapusta? Typical man — fool! I was out of milk so I used water and a bit of extra oil. The bread came out wonderful, delicious. I hav recently found your web site and made the 90 min wheat bread. I made the breadstix also nifty. I just made your bread and it was so easy! Thank you for the step by step video. I love your recipes!! Is it ok to use only whole wheat flour rather than bread flour?

I would like to know too. I am not allowed to eat any regular flour. You might find some helpful information in the comments on other variations that people have done.

Hi Jenny, just made a bread with your recipe, came out really well. What I would LOVE to know is why do the breads made of only whole-wheat flour, never rise to perfection? My white flour breads always come out super! White flour will always make a lighter bread or cake. Whole wheat flour contains the germ and the bran, making it a heavier flour. I made this bread, and it turned out great for a first try! I plan on making it many more times in the future.

How much cinnamon do you think would be good to add? Do you think I would need more sugar to balance out the cinnamon? Madam, Can you tell me 2 cups flour wheat , in kilogram — ho many gram will be?

Each and everybody cup will not be in same size. I hope your valuable reply. Jenny — Just came across your webpage and tried your simple whole wheat bread this a. Can I successfully double this recipe? This bread is awesome. I usually make bread in a bread machine but that will go into storage. I added 1 cup of dried cranberries, raisins and pumpkin seeds. Saw your recipe, I am not a novice at bread baking, I love simple bread recipes.

I will let you know how the congregation likes it. This recipe is great. I make 1 or 2 loaves each week. I added dry milk powder as well. When ready to make a loaf or two I measure from the big batch, the specific amounts for the recipe. I use water or milk as the liquid plus the oil and egg s. I aerate or sift the dry ingredients as suggested. In the last big batch I used vital wheat gluten and no white flour. Comes out perfect each time. Thanks again, Jenny, for such great recipes.

I just made a couple loaves this afternoon and went out great. Thank you Jenny, you inspired me baking with your simple techniques xx. I made this bread yesterday and it turned out great. I am so pleased. I am an experienced baker and I bake all the time.

Can I just use bread flour for this bread or must it be a mixture. Is whole wheat flour , whole wheat bread flour.? We do not get all purpose flour here, what is it? And here is some info on flours: I have tried this recipe before with successful results without using a stand mixer all mixing and kneading was done by hand. However I wanted to know is the half cup all purpose flour or bread flour absolutely necessary? Can I substitute it with something else? Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful and easy recipe with us.

Instead of kneading 50 turns by hand, how long csn I knead it with the mixer? Thanks for your reply. Hi Gladys, Mix on speed 1 to incorporate ingredients to the desired consistency then Speed 2 for one or more minutes is fine on Kitchen Aid stand mixer.. The bread was soft and had a nice color and tasted really good too. My family members absolutely loved it and I plan to make more this weekend for us and some friends. Thanks Jenny for a simple, yet wonderfully tasting recipe!

You could try but glass loaf pans are usually larger than metal so it might not rise as tall and you would have to reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees F. This is the best wheat bread recipe i ever made!

It is super moist and really tasty. I Doubled the recipe and didnt change the time and it was perfect. Even my husband who hate brown bread loved it! I will try the no egg recipe next time. Btw, i plan on making some more loaf to freeze. Do you recommend slicing before freezing? Or juat freeze the whole bread? Made this recipe … came out like really well … yummy bread … thank you dear for this simple and easy Make: Love what you do. As I had one egg and about 1 cup of soya milk substitute for milk left in my fridge, I decided to give your recipe a try and it turned out well despite the whole meal flour was way passed its expiry date just given to me by my sister.

I know what to buy on my next trip to Australia; good flour and baking utensils since we have limited choice available locally population is only half a million for the whole country. I had a small issue with the way it is written. You have hidden some important details in the preamble. I did not use a mixer and did not triple the kneading time so my first attempt crumbled when sliced.

The second time I got it right with great results. I keep almond milk in stock but not cows milk so I used the almond milk and loved the mild nutty flavour it adds. What an amazing loaf of bread, I was a bit concerned about converting Cups into Metric as I have had problems with this in other recipes but no problem with this, it really is simple to make.

Thank you Jenny I will be using some of your other recipes. Also i bread sticks to the pan so can i grease it? I have never used fresh yeast so you will have to research that, and step 7 of my recipe says to grease the pan. Jenny l love baking your bread recipe l even try to incorporate 14cup of ground flax seeds and it turned out excellent. Fe… did you change any of the other ingredients to compensate for the flax? I have used this recipe 10 or so times now, and turns out great every time!

The whole family loves it, and always prefers when I bake bread than buy it at the store. Thanks so much for the amazing recipe!!!! After years of trying to master bread and ending up with hit-and-miss results, I finally found a fool-proof loaf!

This is now my standard loaf bread, in both white and wheat as the fancy strikes me. Best bread recipe yet! I have been playing with different bread recipes for the last year or so, and this is the best recipe so far in taste, texture and results! Whole family likes and will be adding as a regular bake. This one, however turned out perfect.

This is the recipe I will be using from now on. Everything else was according to the recipe. I just made this and it came out great! Thank you so much for this recipe! I am going to make this every few days and never buy bread at the store again!

I think next time I will add seeds to bake into the bread: Thanks for sharing this recipe… I am based in Mumbai India and love to bake my own loaf.

Have already made a couple of successful lovely loafs with this. Only thing different is the packet of wheat flour I am using though it is exactly the same brand from the same Miller. Any idea what could have gone wrong and how I could rectify?

It could be that your yeast has gone stale. Yeast has a very short shelf life and once opened, it should be kept frozen.

Can anyone tell me if i can only use plain flour instead of the wheat one? Will that be ok? Do i need to change the quantity? Great videos my dear! Keep up the good work! That would be my Simple White Bread. I love this recipe so easy I stopped buying bread. Trying it with chia seed. Thank you so much for your recipe! I had never made bread with milk before, it adds such a lovely flavor! My husband and I have both really enjoyed the loaf I made the other day. What would you say is the best way to store this loaf on the counter?

In a plastic bag, tupperware, etc? Plastic if tightly sealed can create moisture, which is not good for bread. I store mine wrapped in foil and I refrigerate it after the 2nd day. Just had to let you know how great this bread is. My 11 yr old daughter made this using a friends organic whole wheat flour and entered it in the county fair and she got a purple ribbon. Everyone who tasted it, loved it. Thanks for this recipe! This is the first bread I ever made that looked, sliced, and tasted like bread should.

It was so easy and both my husband and I love it! How is it after it is frozen? I would like to make more than one loaf so that I could have it on hand. During the baking my bread gets the crack from the point where the dough rises above the tin. Whereas in your pic the Crack is not so open… What precaution should I keep to avoid the crack.

Found this recipe last week, and just whipped it together. The first time I try a new recipe I always make sure I follow instructions carefully. Well, the dough was very very runny…it seems that there was about 50 percent too much milk? I did mash it together with additional flour…and it is rising now…let me check it….

I will continue with it and bake it when it gets a bit higher. I love making my own bread. I am a Canadian retired in Argentina, and the bread here really leaves a lot to be desired. And it is quite expensive. Will let you know how it turns out.

Should have known…made in Argentina!! Anyway, the loaf I made turned out surprisingly good, despite basically pouring it onto the counter and flouring it half to death and hardly kneading it at all and then scraping it together to put into the pan. Very obliging dough that is for sure. A real go-to when you need a loaf of bread now…. I have just baked the wheat bread. I cut the risen dough into half as I got 2 smaller loaf tins..

It turns out surprisingly good after 35min. The crust, texture and its taste are v. Its my first suscessful and satisfying bread I have attempted. I wonder if you can help for an eggless bread? Can I use an 8 by 8 pan if its only 2 inches tall? Would you recommend any changes I should make? So I asked my dad for help and he rolled the dough up like you did in the video, then he rolled it up again, so it was a square.

Thank you Jenny, this was an awesome recipe! I just successfully baked my very first whole wheat bread and wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe! More power to your future endeavors! Hi…thanks for this easy recipe. Only in the video you explain it wich for my was to late. The time to rise my dough was more than one our. I can think was for the lack of kneading process.

I also indicate above to knead the dough 50 turns but your dough rising slowly may be for a different reason. Please look at this post: Jenny, I stopped buying commercially made bread over a year ago due to all of the preservatives, HFCS, trans fats, etc…, and started making my own homemade loaves.

They taste wonderful too! Every Sunday is bread baking day, so we have it for lunches for the week. Thanks for such a tasty and easy recipe! Thank you ever so much for this beautiful recipe. Spot on at the very first attempt. Watching the video was a great help. I hand kneaded all through. The bread was super soft and flavour was wonderful. Thanks once again wish I could share my pictures. I wish I had seen the correction during the video saying to grease the pan!

I had to pry the loaf out of the pan and the bottom did not come out with the rest of the loaf. The bread was a nice texture and very flavorful.

First time making whole wheat bread. Followed the recipe as written. Had a taste while warm with butter, brown cheese and jam.

Next time will be adding my favorite nuts to this recipe. Jenny when I lived in Canada I was hooked to your show. Now am hooked to your easy recipes. Have a great day. On the wholeweat bread can I use 1 tabl. Keep up the good work. You have giving us great healthy recipes.

And please make more videos! I made twice with your recipe. Both successful and ofcourse tasted very healthily delicious. Though I added less sugar. Any replacements for the milk? Someone may have make it with a substitute. I rarely use milk in my bread recipes. I just use plain water. It turns out perfect every time I make two to three loaves a week. I dont eat eggs but very keen to bake this wholewheat bread soon! Jenny, your recipe rocks! It is so unforgiving to make.

I made it in a nutri ninja dough blender. It tastes great and my picky teenage daughter loved it and so did my mom who is a great baker. I also love your entertaining way of teaching us to cook! Living in India, working with completely different flour and yeast quality, I was apprehensive about trying this recipe as many other experiments had left me with dense, yeasty-smelling under cooked bread.

The bread is a winner and I am really excited to try your cinnamon rolls next. Thank you for the recipe. Thanks Jenny, I am sticking with your recipes. I only use whole milk and works just fine. I also substitute honey for the sugar. It all works well. I only use whole meal bread, which I buy from the market. The taste and quality is never consistent. Now, with your help, I shall make my own. Thank you so much!

I just made this recipe and it turned out amazing! Hi Jenny, I want to say thanks for this recipe and how easy it was. Jenny, thank you so much for this recipe. This loaf came out beautifully! It is light, moist and will now be our bread for all times! Note to others, I used only whole wheat flour. My bread took about an hour to rise but other than that it was perfect.

I live in New Orleans so maybe being below sea level was a factor or the humidity! Jenny I love this recipe but was wondering if I could use water instead of milk for someone with a milk allergy.

I have only used milk so you would have to experiment or you could try a non-dairy milk alternative. Hi Karen, I always use what I have on hand. Sometimes I use milk or slightly soured milk, almond milk or water.

The taste may be slightly different and the colour may be as well, but any of them work I find. I have been baking bread for some 40 years. I think you can use whole milk but it might make the bread a little heavier. If you try please let us know how it turns out. Thanks for this great recipe! Instructions were so easy made my first loaf every and it turned out fantastic.

Had no trouble following you and had a Laugh too. Next Im making cinnamon rolls a family favorite! I have made this 6 or 7 times and usually it turns out perfectly. I use heritage grain organic flour from my local farm which imparts a wonderful taste and texture. So much easier to slice than bread made in the bread machine!

You might like my honey wheat bread. I have found that some recipes just work better with eggs in them, esp some that use only whole wheat flour and not white. I made this and the Cinnamon Rolls this past week, and they both turned out great! My body seems to digest both of these foods very well. Remember that you cannot remove lectins entirely from your diet, so pick and choose wisely.

Beans are a beloved staple for many vegans and vegetarians for their frugality and protein content. They are delicious and filling, but they also cause some undesirable digestive issues. The obvious of these is gas, bloating, cramping and indigestion. Besides the lectins and phytic acid contained in most legumes, the harder beans such as kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans contain oligosaccharides. Humans do not produce the enzyme necessary to break down these complex sugars.

When consumed, the oligosaccharides ferment in the lower intestine producing carbon dioxide and methane gasses. They are literal protein fart generators!! The nasty bacteria residing in your intestines love fermentation! Constant fermentation in your intestines leads to inflammation and damage to the intestinal lining. Soaking and Fermenting Increases Nutritional Content.

The common thread to all of these anti-nutrients is that they cause severe distress to the digestive system, which leads to a host of health issues that can be quite difficult to turn around. To add a little more fuel to the fire, when you consume grains, beans, nuts, and seeds that are not soaked or fermented, you also miss out on the fabulous nutrients locked inside. Vital proteins, vitamins especially vitamin B , enzymes and minerals are unlocked through the soaking process, making them ten times more nutritious than in their raw form.

So not only do you deactivate harmful nutrients, you activate all the goodness that Mother Nature wants you to have. Here is a long list of benefits when you soak your grains, beans, nuts and seeds: All that is necessary is a little planning. I especially love the pre-soaked beans and the nut butter!! Purchase Eden Organic Beans on Amazon. Arrowhead Mills Sprouted Wheat Flour. Arrowhead Mills Pancake Mix. Organic Sprouted Oat Flour.

Organic Sprouted Lentil Flour. Sprouted Grains and Beans: Food for Life Ezekiel Bread. Food for Life Sprouted Grain. Sprouted Whole Grain Cereal. Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Cereal. Whole Grain Tortilla Chips.

Blue Corn Tortilla Chips. Nuts and Nut Butters: Sprouted Pumpkin Seed Butter. Sprouted Sunflower Seed Butter. Sprouted Cashew Nut Butter. I hope I have been able to provide you with some invaluable information to help you with your whole food, plant-based eating. And as always, if you enjoyed this post and would like more information like this, please join me on Facebook , Twitter , Instagram and Pinterest. I rarely meet anyone who doesn't love nuts and seeds. At first glance, soaking may seem intimidating and time-consuming.

I thought the same thing…. I am on a journey to eat better and feed my babies better. This is so new to me and I love learning. Thanks for providing a list of resources while I get set up to do it homemade! We do enjoy tofu love our tofu scramble — can you recommend an alternative for a scramble?

Unfortunately, I know of no substitutes for tofu.: Just keep working on the finding different types of foods to eat. It takes a while to get used to different types of textures. I will continue the quest to try new recipes and techniques that incorporate non-soy, GF whole foods!!

Thanks again for your help!!! And you are certainly welcome! Hi Kim, My Dad told me about some of his vegan research and said cooking foods over certain temps somewhere around or so reduces the nutrients as it denatures enzymes. I sprout mung beans and eat them every day. Wondering if I can ask them to leave it raw for me. Ruth, unless the chickpeas are sprouted, I would assume eating them raw would be tough on your digestion.

Not sure how they would make raw falafel, either, unless I misunderstood the question. Hey Kim, thank you so much for providing this detailed and immensely helpful information regarding soaking beens. I myself have recently made an attempt to eliminate most grains from my diet, trying to eat mostly sprouted, and began soaking my beans.

I have also stopped buying canned beans, like Eden Organic, because I assumed they did not pre-soak their beans. However I was shocked when I saw the link you provided claiming that they do.

I followed your link and could not find any specific information regarding this process. I was wondering if you could perhaps demonstrate where exactly you read that information. Thanks again for sharing your wisdom. Anywhere from hours is good. Visit both these links for more info: Here you go Arun, http: How far through the program did you get — did you do any phase 2 reintroduction of foods to see how your body reacts to them? If you already tested foods and saw they were okay, and you want to do the cleanse again, you could probably add the tested foods to the phase 1 foods.

I already bought the supplements, but I was wondering which other brands of protein powder did you use instead of the Clean Shake? You could try checking in to the online community registration required — http: Hello and Happy New Years!

Well it has begun. The quest for a healthier me. I am a sufferer of autoimmune disease. I have chronic uticaria and angioedema.

I also have been having issues with random stomach issues getting sick. I am only 47 years old and am shattered that I have become like an old lady internally. I have heard from many sources that trying a clean diet might be the way to go for me. This of course has not been a suggestion from my physician.

He sadly scoffs at such healing ideas. I purchased the Clean Gut diet book. I am very excited to try it. Happy New Year to you too! But after detox symptoms go away you may start to feel better, although it might not happen straight away. Hi Penny- are fresh prawns allowed?

Also, store bought almond milk- what ingredients are allowed? Junger mentions seafood, he talks about fish but not shellfish. Have you ever thought about making your own almond milk? Generally, you grind the nut and add to water and blend well, or put nuts and water in a blender and blend well, then strain the mixture. Is there a less expensive option out there? Can one just take Berberine? Hi Lisa, and happy new year to you too! Can anybody else help? You could try checking in with the coaches they say this is a free service — http: The canned variety or the kind in the carton?

Read the ingredients and, when in doubt, make your own. You can also use coconut milk in a carton from the health-food or grocery store. Or it could be because they have other beneficial compounds that offset the caffeine. Or it could be that when Dr. What is the rational for avoiding barbecue sauce, chutney, ketchup, relish, traditional soy sauce, teriyaki sauce? Barbecue sauce, chutney, ketchup, and relish as well as teriyaki sauce tend to be loaded with sugar, and sometimes added chemicals.

This is a no-sugar diet. I am about to start this program — primarily because most of my maternal aunts and uncles died of colon cancer. The book has an analogy to growing a tree — keeping the roots healthy is the key to tending the whole plant, and making your gut healthier allows your whole body to improve.

So you could try to use this program as the basis for health, and take learnings from other places on how to increase muscle mass as long as they also meet the guidelines of the diet. Then focus on testing proteins to see which ones are healthy or toxic for you. Once you know which proteins are healthy for you, use them moderately along with exercise to gain back your muscle mass.

Your guidelines are good and helpful to summarize the program. Me and my husband have been on this program for a bit over a week. Also we are vegetarians, i do not eat eggs or any kind of meat or seafood. My yeast overgrowth also returned after following program for about a week or so. After doing some of my own research, I have increased my coconut oil consumption significantly try to get tbspoons , and feel a relief,.

I am Vegan and desperately want to try this. If I include tomatoes and peppers do you think I should still get the benefits of the change? I have experienced nausea for 10 weeks and have had every test all negative , medicine, and even accupuncture.

I am really hoping I can get relief from this. Junger is a little contradictory about nightshades on this program. Then reintroduce the foods as suggested. Beets are a high-sugar vegetable — the sugars are natural, but the program is low sugar including natural sugars so they should be avoided.

Hi Penny All your comments and feedback is really so helpful — thank you! I wanted to ask — I have not been diagnosed with PCOS but have a strong feeling that I may have this, as I am experiencing some of the symptoms. At the same time I want to follow this program. Hi Sheney, How about trying the Clean Gut diet first and seeing how it clears up your symptoms? I am on a daily antibiotic related to frequent UTIs and kidny stones. Is there anything I can do to improve my gut health while continuing on antibiotics?

Wow, that must be really frustrating. Are daily antibiotics the only way to deal with the infections? The book appears to argue that improving your diet according to its guidelines will help you to improve your general health, lowering the likelihood of infections and other health issues.

Any thoughts on this? It tells you to fill 80 percent of your plate with greens and vegetables raw, steamed, baked, cooked and 20 percent with protein and good fats meat, fish, quinoa, avocado, etc. Are these fruits allowed? Banana, pomegranate berry family , strawberries, raspberries allowed in this program?

I am into day 3 of the clean diet as I have atrophic gastritis and want to heal my tummy. I am already a small build and concerned about losing weight without all the carbs and grains. Should I be having shakes or protein balls between the main meals to keep up energy levels and add some calories.

I also like to exercise as a cyclist and doing resistance training. Should I modify some of the rules of this diet to suit my body build and energy levels? There are plenty of non-grain carbs listed as foods to eat — Vegetables: If you want to make shakes or protein balls, make sure they fit the guidelines of what ingredients to eat and quantities.

Hi, I have read a bit about beneficial gut bacteria needing resistant starches for survival and reproduction. I am wondering if Dr Junger has recommendations of what types would be acceptable on this diet. However, he includes a lot of vegetables in the diet, which have their own starches. I have started the 3-day Jumpstart Cleanse but am a bit concerned about the interaction with some of my prescription drugs with Berberine, so I have omitted Berberine from the program.

Is it safe to take Berberine with Tambocor an anti-arrhythmic drug for the heart — contains Flecainide? Is it safe to take Berberine as an asthmatic?

I hope you find the answer somewhere else! Trying to eat mostly foods on the do Eat side but what about foods not listed on either? I thank god for Dr. Everything about this program is great. I have one question; when making smoothies, can I make extra servings and store in the refrigerator for the next days? However, for recipes that can be stored, the author will often say so e. The milk will keep for three to four days. They also might not taste as good.

Hi Tom, The book says you should avoid regular chocolate with dairy and sugar. In most of the recipes it asks you to use either cacao powder which is basically the same as pure cocoa powder but raw, and is said to contain more ingredients , or carob powder. However, there is one recipe Chocolate Ginger Shake that gives the choice of raw cacao powder or cocoa powder. It looks like the author would prefer you to use cacao powder which you can get online or in health food stores , but maybe having pure cocoa powder occasionally would be okay.

Headaches; Have you tried stopping any form of sugar replacements? Including Stevia, xylitol, Lakanto, all which are ok on the list but personally effect me. Any kind of sugar replacement gives me blinding headaches. This diet kills most of those so IF that happens to be the problem that might be why this helps.

Worth checking into by charting the headaches and these replacement sweeteners, if you are using them. Good luck and I hope you find it soon! Why would quinoa be okay but not brown rice? And why lentils but not beans. I understand grains are probably best avoided but why not just eat a tiny bit?

Many candida diets allow that too: These are foods that will be reintroduced later on to see how you react to them.

When you take a break it makes it easier to recognize your reaction. Hi, I will be starting the gut cleanse program on Monday. I am prepared to do significant meal prep to make this successful, but as a full time working teacher and mom, I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around preparing the suggested lunches when I only have 30 minutes to eat lunch on a good day. The dinner salads would be much easier to prep and pack for lunch. And, the lunches would be much more practical time wise and ingredient wise for myself and family to eat for dinner.
