The only thing about the Paul Nison diet is that it made me constipated. I was doing normal looking poo but it was really hard. I was also loosing weight, I went donw to my teenage weight of 98lb @ 5 foot 1 inch tall. It did help me with my remission, and because of this diet I started chewing raw spinach if I was worried about an urgency. I was too skinny on the diet. My daily diet at the moment is
Morning= 1 bowl gluten free porridge
1 slice of gluten free bread
mid morning= 2 or 3 bananas
lunch usually= raw baby leaf spinach salad with salmon.
Dinner usually= potatoes and raw leafed salad, with bean sprouts, spinach, avocado, ect.
After dinner I used to have puddings but now I don’t now I just have a fresh squeezed juice.
There were a couple of occasions where I have eaten gluten free, dairy free, wheat free cookies, but these are not recommended as they still are not good for you.
My diet sort of sounds healthy but I don’t really know.
