Hi everyone, just got my sulfite and sulfate strips in, and have begun the diet. I'm looking for tips on: 1. Easier ways to eat out and avoid high thiol ingredients. So far I'm trying to just say "no dairy, nuts, onions - allergy" to avoid the majority of stuff that can be snuck in. I live in NY, so restaurant eating is really an unavoidable part of life (and probably one of my favorite things). I also traditionally use a LOT of peanut butter on a daily basis, and I'm hoping swapping that for almond butter will help more than anything. 2. In general, how long does it take to start seeing a drop on the sticks? The reason I ask is so that I know how soon I can expect a drop, so that if I don't, I know I have to make more changes. 3. Edit: Will the sulfate level go up before it goes down? I just tried one tonight (usually do it in the morning), and hit a solid 1600, yet feeling pretty great. 4. I haven't found any supplements in my research that can help with clearing out sulfates - am I correct in this? Some relevant numbers...my sulfite sticks have read 0-25 the past few days, and sulfate has been around 800-1000. Here's my methylation details too: I'm hoping that my "lighter" CBS mutation will allow me to be a little less restrictive, but we'll see. FWIW, I did try starting on Jarrow B Right, mb12, and mfolate before this, and didn't tolerate it too well. Thus I've decided to take a stab at the CBS matter. Thanks for any suggestions!
