You should make every attempt to eat frequently during the day in order to maintain stabilized blood glucose levels. It is not a good idea to fast during the Repair Vite program, since it may raise a hormone called cortisol that may further compromise the intestinal mucosa.
If you are beginning a Repair Vite diet, it is important to understand what the Repair Vite protocol includes.
Repair: The damaged intestinal lining
Replace: The normal flora (friendly bacteria) and digestive enzymes
Remove: The infection
The bottom line is that we will NEVER get you better without getting your gut function back!
RepairVite and the Autoimmune Diet
The Repair Vite program is an aggressive and complete regimen designed to break the vicious cycle of leaky gut. It consists of a restricted dietary program (to reduce intestinal inflammation) as well as targeted nutritional supplements that are required for several days to help support intestinal membranes. The program will need to be conducted for 30-40 days.
The Repair Vite regimen requires a very strict dietary program necessary for repair of the intestinal membranes. The dietary restrictions are not caloric (quantity of food), so you are allowed to eat whenever you are hungry. However, you must only eat from the list of allowed foods. The goal of the dietary program is to reduce intestinal inflammation and provide nutrients necessary for healthy intestinal microflora. The dietary restrictions include high-sugar foods and starchy carbohydrates that promote intestinal yeast overgrowth, inflammatory proteins (dairy, gluten, etc.), inflammatory lectins, and alcohol that all promote destruction of the intestinal membranes.
You are allowed to eat food with high fiber content, such as vegetable and low glycemic fruits. Also, eat foods with healthy essential fatty acids such as olives, olive oil, and some kinds of fish. Eat foods that are fermented to help improve the health of the intestinal microflora (good bacteria), as well as proteins, such as meats, that are not inflammatory.
