I wanted to know if anyone has any pointers while on a semi-elemental diet. I will be on one for 2 weeks.
I have a mild case of methane based SIBO that has survived through two rounds of herbal antibiotics and one round of pharmaceutical antibiotics (Rifaximin and Neomycin - long battle with insurance on that one
). Now I'm going on a two week semi-elemental diet using Absorb Plus and Udo's oil. For the last 3-4 weeks I've been on a HFLC diet (20% protein, 60% fat, 20% carbs) and for the last 2 weeks have been Intermittent Fasting 8/16.
I started the new regime mid-day yesterday and did experience some brain fog but I also think I'm picking up a cold. This morning I checked blood glucose and it was at 88 mg/dL, about 10 points higher than the previous few days.
I plan to continue Intermittent Fasting and have doubled the oil from 1 tbsp to 2 tbsp per 8 oz serving. If anyone has other experiences to share and how it affected their blood glucose or other health markers, please share. Also any thoughts on Udo's oil?
