Hello, I am travelling to Japan in June and I am worried about screwing up the diet and my potential progress. I have been sick for about a year now and foresee that by June 23 when I fly out I will still be in the same condition. In any case, even if I am better I do not want to develop another infection from eating too many carbs and Sugar when I am in Japan. I will be there for two weeks.
I was thinking about it and Japanese food will always have use soy sauce, which is not allowed on the diet. You can't just ask for it without the sauce as that's how they cook the food.
On top of that the rice is a no-no as it is white rice and loaded with sugar, so sushi is out of the question.
I can't cook my own food as I will be too busy and I don't even know if my hostel will have a proper kitchen. In any case, this is a holiday, my first holiday in about eight years, and I want to enjoy eating out and not be cooking every meal.
Convenience stores and supermarkets are no good for food on the run too as nearly everything has Mono-Sodium-Glutamat (Natrium Glutamat) in it or some form of wheat contamination. Fruit is obviously not a quick on the go option.
So what I am left with is nuts for snacking on and salads with no dressing. I don't think I will survive a Japanese holiday on nuts and salads.
Does anybody have any experience in Japan on this diet? Is soy sauce really that bad for candida...? I mean, it wouldn't be be as bad as white rice or high-sugar content foods would it?
How does Sake compare to vodka as an acceptable drink if I'm going to have a drink?
How about Sapparo beer, which I read is low in yeast?
If I stick to the diet 100% until June do I maybe have a chance of getting away with cheating whilst I'm away? I just don't want to end up getting sick in Japan when I'm meant to be having fun.
