HG Meal Plan #1

These are half strict and half lib. Stick to this plan and you will adjust to the huge change faster than going strict right away. ie- less cravings and huge hunger pains!

As always, There are many who can not have one thing (dairy/ low oxalate/ other) or other, so feel free to mix and match what ever works for you. I personally always make enough for me and my hubby to eat a supper meal and have leftovers for supper the next day too. If you have a larger family, you will either need to make a new meal every night as I have shown or make more.

Hope this helps!

    Hi Christine! I am starting the protocol in about a month. I am thinking about starting the HG diet before then. I also have Fibro pretty bad and in the last year I have been having a reaction of intestinal upset from dairy. Do you think this diet will allow me to add dairy back in? Restricting dairy would even furthur limit my choices. Thanks.

    • Christine says:

      Hi Kim!

      Good idea to start the diet first! It’s a big change, and will give you a chance to settle into it before starting the guaifenesin and needing to watch for any symptom change 🙂 Do you live close to a mapper who can help you?

      I used to not be able to tolerate dairy too 🙂 Between the diet and the protocol it dosn’t bother me anymore 🙂 Not that i’ve tried to drink a glass of milk or anything lately, but everything else is fine! And oh my gosh, I have no idea what I’d eat if I couldn’t have dairy!!

  2. Kim says:

    I don’t think I do live close to a mapper. Is that totally necessary? How do they help you other than mapping?

    • Christine says:

      Not totally necessary, just helpful 🙂 I LOVE my mapper, it’s so awesome to SEE those lumps disappear and know you are clearing and on the right dose. But if you don’t have a mapper, no worries, just be SUPER careful with salicylates, never fudge even a little on that so you don’t unknowingly block. When you\re being mapped, a mapper will see the lumps start to re-appear after a while, if you aren’t being mapped, you wont know till years down the road <3

    Hi Christine: I’ve been on the Guai protocol now for 2.3/4 years now but not the HG diet. I have been border line Hypo but have not gone on the diet. Quite frankly it rather terrifies me but I am worried that I am stalling the benefits of the protocol and throwing money away if I don’t do the HG diet. I would appreciate hearing your words of wisdom and thoughts? Thanks!

    • Christine says:

      Hi Anonymous! 🙂
      If you are border line HG, this diet will TOTALLY help you!! EVen people who are only carb intolerant (a large number with fibro are) this diet will help. You gotta just try it and see, you won’t go back, seriously!! <3 hang in there, you can do this!

  4. Holly OBrien says:

    This is really super helpful. I am going to use this as my start on the HG diet. I do need to go strict eventually, but I think this is a good start. I don’t like to eat meat so will sub tofu for most of the meat dishes.

Leave a lovely comment! I read and respond to all comments here and love to hear from you! <3
