A friend of mine just started taking Nystatin (powder form, teaspoon, four times a day) plus a few SF277 with each meal. He was wondering how long it typically takes to start having a die off reaction. He also wanted to know whether he can have grapefruit on the nystatin diet, because grapefruit seed extract is supposed to help with candida. He also wanted to know whether there is a list of foods to eat and not to eat. He said books are too long and only saying little at a time.
Dealing with that situation, in my opinion, do the diet really strict. It depends how bad you have it to how quick you will get through one. There are many different lists and theories out there about diet. The following items seem to be acceptable by all the diets:
Lemons, olive oil, green vegetables of all kinds (preferably organic), garlic, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, leeks, and onions.
Depending on the diet (and other conditions that you may be treating concurrently, like leaky gut), you may or may not eat the following:
Potatoes, beans, legumes, tofu, meat, eggs, oats, quinoa, amaranth, millet, carrots, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, gluten, yeast, and nuts.
However, most diets forbid the following:
Any type of sugar or sweetener (except stevia), white flour, pasta, fermented
products (soy sauce, vinegar, mustard), and alcohol.
Of course, there are lots of other different diets. However, the above suggestion is the most common one.
