We are on day 5 of the Body Ecology Diet.

My personal symptoms are:
IRRITABILITY
Tiredness
Food cravings
gas
constipation followed by horrible diarrhea
headache
stuffy nose
sore throat

My 3yo's symptoms are:
initial worsening of eczema
irritability
TANTRUMS
constipation (we haven't seen the diarrhea yet, I'm scared, eek)
wanting to nurse constantly - especially wanting to nurse instead of eating
tiredness
exaggerated indecisiveness

We are turning the initial die-off corner, I think, though. Fingers crossed.

How long does die off usually last? And are you taking supplements, or is it just the diet?

The BED book says the worst of the symptoms are on days 3-5, though it can last 10 days or more. by supplements, do you mean vitamins, etc or anti-fungals? no anti-fungals here, just lots and lots of veggies, raw apple cider vinegar, homemade cultured veggies, and properly combined foods. We are taking an additional probiotic supplement right now as we recolonize our guts with good flora. i'm hoping to start homemade coconut water kefir soon too. (waiting on dairy-free kefir starter). also, i put chlorophyll in our water as it feeds the good bacteria. HTH!
