This article might be of use if you want to know about candida diet and fruits. All experts in candida control that I believe and trust say no fruits at all for the first couple of weeks at least. Fresh lemon juice doesn’t have much sugar in it and it a natural diuretic. Most say some is fine. If you have chronic or severe candida connected problems, you should not eat any fruit for a couple of months at least, and then add them back slowly. Grapefruit seed extract is widely allowed, but this is very different from grapefruit itself. The fruit has fairly high sugar content, not as high as oranges of tangerines but still high enough to affect the amount of sugar a severe candida sufferers feed to their yeast. Read more..

A friend is having a lot of stomach problems from eating only protein and vegetables at candida diet meals. She gets so sick she ends up eating bread to calm her stomach. She wants to know if this normal digestion, die-off, or something else. If it is normal digestion and the burning is hunger, she needs to eat every three hours. She seriously has the burning about three hours after she eats, every time, unless she cheats and has pizza or burgers or something “bad”. After ten years of dieting (and she is only 23), she wonders if her body is just not recognize real hunger. She is desperate to lose weight, which is making her depressed because none of her clothes fit. She is curious if there is any supplement to take for the vitamin sources. Read more..
I think it is a good idea to shop around when looking for anti candida protocols. Quite often, I find that it works out much cheaper to adapt a protocol that is out there by buying the same product from a health food store. There are a lot of people/companies out there who are just waiting to prey on candida sufferers! I thought it might be an idea to share my experiences of this. Read more..
