I'm new here, but could not help but "weigh in" on the carb issue. I do bio-energetic testing in my work, which is a biofeedback method of evaluating what each individual body needs nutritionally. I work with a board certified naturopath and have learned so, so much that relates to the hCG protocol.
While a parasite cleanse might be good - emphasis on the "might" - I would instead look at a candida cleanse. That will make a person crave carbs like nothing else because, in effect, the fungus is calling to be fed a sugar source to keep itself alive. The fair probably did it too you. I am carb sensitive - even whole grains are not my friends at times, let alone white flour and sugar. One bit of sugar gets the whole thing going again for me since I have candida and yeast overgrowth. Then the cravings start anew.
There are candida "yeast" detox formulas out there and I especially use an herb called neem in my work for candida and fungus. Read up on it on the web and you will see why it works. It is my "go-to" to deal with my yeast.
The hCG diet is amazing for me, though I am only R1P2. I am resolved not to cheat because I am using it as an opportunity to shed the weight I accumulated through menopause and an extremely stressful period and also to clean out the toxins and fungus. So far, so good. I will provide my progress in another post.
Great to be here!
