    A couple of years of years ago, I was using 10000 iu a day of vitamin D and I was getting kidney pain very often. Nowadays I use 5000 iu on my skin, of which just 20% gets absorbed, so it's like I'm using 1000 iu orally. So far no kidney pain anymore.

    Did you notice an improvement on this daily 80000 units ? Does it match your weight (the protocol calls for roughly 1000 units/kg) ?
    Or it made no difference at all (besides your falling hair) ?

    Thank you for kind words.
    There is no such thing as A2 milk in Poland. Who knows, maybe one day I will be able to reintroduce milk. I'd love that.
    Why do you call the Cypro evil? I forgot to mention that at the same time when my first joint pain occured (30 years ago),
    I also started having chronic idiopatic urticaria. It was not coincidence, I believe. It was just another systemic manifestation of one condition. Since then I am on antihistamines on and off. I take 1 mg of cypro every second day. Unfortunately, urticaria was not resolved by this diet. At least not yet. I prefer cypro than other antihistamines. When I was taking Zyrtec, I needed at least 10 mg.

    A great write up and I love the simplicity of your post. Fruit, meat and seafood with profound benefits for you. A tolerance for these foods, and I think in some cases of AI, a tolerance to oneself too.

    Oh, sorry. You meant cipro , not cypro - the group of antibiotcs. My mistake. As far as I remember I never took them.

    Yes, I think that elimination of starch can make a huge difference to some people. I do use white sugar ocasionally. I lovr it in my tea, I just can't use any sybstance twice or more daily.

    Actually, I didn't notice any difference. No improvement. That is why I stopped. I was not motivated to continue. If I ever decide to try it again, I will definitely find a doctor. I am 50 kg, so it was more than 1000/kg. Some Coimbra patients take as much as 700-800 000 units.

    Thanks,
    Sometime the road to the simplest solutions is very complicated. You are right about tolerance to oneself. I've noticed many benefits when it comes to my psychological condition. I am calmer, more tolerant, I don't make much drama. I feel better with myself.

    Thanks for the input.

    Did you attempt in your experiment to supplement with other vitamins and minerals, as advised in the official protocol ( magnesium, Vit B, ...) ?

    Hello Goat-E,
    Still around and very confused again. Thought gelatine would save me since gut gives me problems and am afraid I'm not getting enough proteins daily. Had constant neausea for a long time, took a course in doxy and neausea disappeared after this have been supplementing with gelatine powder. What are the bad bacteria gelatine feeds?

    I can't remember which types exactly (there's a thread about it on here somewhere but I can't find it just now), but if it doesn't give you symptoms then I wouldn't worry. In my case even small amounts of gelatin in any form result in all sorts of symptoms very quickly so it's clear it's not for me. But many people do well, it's just a matter of finding what works for you.

    Thanks for sharing.

    So question; even with meat and fruit, are you saying if you eat the same food more than once in a day, you have pain?

    When I eat or even drink the same thing more than once daily for a period of time, about two weeks, I become intolerant to this food. This happened even with coffee. I discovered this pattern far too late. I don't think it will happen to everyone. Far from it, i think it is a unique defect, but I believe I am not the only one in the world.

    According to Promethease and 23andme gene testing I’m highly prone to such a disease and it turns out that other genes strongly suggest sticking to a “hunter gatherer” diet because of the absence of a mutation on a glucose transporter (that enables most people to digest starch perfectly fine)

    What’s on my menu? Fruits and proteins all day. Glad it worked for ya, it sure feels optimal to me.

    Yes, basically I only eat fruits and animal ptotein except dairy. I eat 2 servings of protein : eggs and meat or fish/seafood.
    In the evening I only have fruits. I also supplement eggshell calcium, vit K2, magnesium daily. I can't include veggies, whenever i tried my symptoms returned, so I stopped. It's been almost a year now and I feel like a completely new person. Lack of pain is only one benefit. I have great energy, I am much less stressed, happier, more confident. Life does not feel like a threat anymore, I am much more resistant to everyday adversities. I work out 3 rimes a week.Good luck with your experimentation.

    Very interesting. I'm following a similar diet now. The bulk of my diet is grass-fed ground beef and oranges. Some bananas, some wild blueberries, Medjool dates. Some OJ and pineapple juice too. I do really enjoy seafood and may start having raw oysters regularly again, and plan on adding weekly liver back into my diet as well.

    I really enjoy vegetables, but they're a much more minor part of my diet, and irregular in how often I have them, if only for saving some $$$, and for convenience. They're a lot more effort to prepare, and even shop for, and since I shop and cook alone just for myself, it's often too much of a hassle.

    I do have dairy fairly regularly, but have backed off pretty heavily lately. I haven't added any supplemental calcium back in but plan on that soon too, to make up for that loss. I use half and half or heavy cream in my coffee, and a bit of shredded cheese with the ground beef (along with a ton of spices), but that's about it for dairy these days. I've already lost some belly fat just by eating more meat/fruit and not eating lots of hard cheese anymore. I love Brie especially but I didn't feel anywhere near as energetic eating a bunch of hard/soft cheeses compared to more meat/fruit. I think the fat intake was just too much and probably messing up my glucose metabolism.

    I've noticed pretty consistently that I feel best on a diet high in meat and fruit. I feel like I can actually binge eat oranges if I'm hungry enough and craving them enough, and have done so many times. The funny thing is, I never feel sick afterwards, even if I absolutely stuff myself with oranges. I always just feel energized, stable, and happy, no crash or anything. Sometimes I eat them alongside meat, sometimes by themselves.

    Was actually joking with a friend today about how I feel like oranges give me superpowers. It seriously feels that uplifting. I love almost all fruits on the planet but oranges are my favorite. To me it's like they store the energy and happiness of the sunlight within themselves and I feel it when I eat a bunch of them.

    And one of the ultimate "desserts" on the planet to me is just plain wild blueberries. I get them frozen and just let them thaw.

    I also do pea protein/collagen shakes, with digestive enzymes, and almond milk and banana. Those are excellent and I tolerate them well, and help lighten the load of how much meat I eat every day, which for me is mostly a cost and convenience thing. The pea protein/collagen it convenient and as long as I take enzymes with it, well tolerated.

    I usually have the shake as a post workout drink, or even alongside a meal of ...you guessed it, meat and fruit.

    Great it works for you. Sounds quite similar, only that I do not have freedom to includ other stuff. But that is fine with me. I do not crave other foods anymore. I feel absolutely satisfied. It feels like I regaind my instincts regarding food, which were completely messed up before. I know when I am hungry and need food. I have absolutely no desire to eat anything between meals. It is so liberating. It is all so simple right now.
