Hello,

My boyfriend, seeing my sweet tooth being completely deprived of any indulgence whatsoever for almost a month, one evening brought me a “Choco perfection” chocolate bar. It’s a sugar free bar with 100% natural sweeteners (oligofructose and erythritol), that should actually benefit Candida sufferers!!
I couldn’t find any negative information about it, just positive coments. And it tastes deliciously devine!!!

I am a chocolate lover! I found it most painful when I had to give it up, but I found an alternative. We buy Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder. I add about a teaspoon of that and stevia to my oatmeal and it is great! Helps me start my day.

Hi, I am new to the forum and the first thing I see is CHOCOLATE! I was under the impression that any kind of sweeteners are not allowed?? Natural sweeteners like honey etc also disallowed?? I sincerely hope I have got it wrong?

your allowed xylitol in second stage of diet , i went to a nutritionist and its fine, it actually helps with oral thrush , look it up on wikipedia and google :-) . however the choclate the person above has mentioned is not good as it has caffeine in it , i know as i got excited and ordered it . i felt like crap after it. my nutrisionist has recommended a chocolate alternative called carob, ive found a yummy one called siesta bars , in mint and orange , ok its not cadbury but its better than nothing , hope this helps x

Yeah, I'm really sorry guys, but I have to agree with the posters above who said that the caffeine in chocolate is one of the primary reasons it's a no go on a candida-diet. Even if it's sugar and lactose free, it isn't going to be caffeine free. Caffeine, even in small amounts, is going to feed your candida.

Carob powder *can* be a somewhat satisying alternative. It's caffeine free, but you have to get used to using it. In baked recipes, it can be used as a 1:1 substitute for unsweetened cocoa powder. Other than that, it does best when hot liquid is added to it (not the other way around - it won't dissolve well and will clump up) while whisking pretty vigorously. I've made some yummy things with it and stevia, though. It's worth a shot.

So, sorry about the bad news on the chocolate. If you're serious about getting rid of your yeast, though, you really want to get yourself off of caffeine completely.

Natural sweeteners are also sugar! Fructose, for instance, is the sugar of fruit.
If you want chocolate, I think the best would be raw organic cacao.

Cheers.

Yeah that is pretty much a bummer! I know you should stay away from caffeine completely, shame that chocolate contains some. Why does it have to be ;( Chocolate is so good!

Dark chocolate is the best for the candida diet because it contains less sugars. Almost all chocolate contains a high amount of caffeine which is not beneficial to the diet.

Hi Kelandu,
why don't you try having a tablespoon of Coconut oil in the morning. It gives you a lot of energy and is actually healthy and fights candida! You could have 3 Tbs per day and it is very beneficial!

I've made my own chocolates from raw organic cacao, coconut oil and stevia just mixed together and divided onto a chocolate tray and refrigerated. When I feel the need for chocolate, I'll have a couple of these and I'm fine again:)

Tuula; are you promoting your own profitable website on the forum? Just curious as this appears to be the case since you've posted the very same website on all of your posts. In other words, six posts and six links all to the same website.

Just so you know, those of us who are regular members of the forum will pay no attention to your comments if we're aware that this is what you're really doing.

Carob has sugar in it :( I know...devastating.

Also ladies, those siesta carob bars have soy in them > soya powder and soya lecithin. Soy is also a no go. But if you've been eating these bars and feeling good maybe they work for you? Everyone has different food sensitivities.

Hi Skyblue,

I am sorry if you were taken aback from my comments. I am only commenting from my own experience, since I've known about my candida from July 2011.

I am not actually posting the howicuredmycandida website with every post but it comes automatically from the signature. That is what the signatures are for and it is quite legitimate. And the website is not profitable as you refer, not anymore than this 'The Candida Diet' website.

My website is for people to read freely about my journey to full health again. If someone gets any consolation or advice from it, then I am just happy for them. The couple of ads that are on the site are products that I have personally purchased and used, and found to be beneficial.

Do you really think that the keeper of this forum and website is doing it without trying to get some compensation for their time, effort and costs that it takes to build up a website and run it?

I'd appreciate if you didn't badmouth me, since I am sincere and just trying to communicate with others in the same situation as me. I started my blog to help me deal with candida and believe it or not, some people really think it is a good place of information.

Cheers,
Tuula

I love chocolate but I only eat the dark ones since its good for our diet so whenever my craving hits I just order at TCN since they have lots of dark chocolates to choose from.

So, how’s that working for you? Other than satisfying a craving for chocolate?
(and where did you read that?)

About Stevia...I noticed at the store the other day that some stevia brands have dextrose or fructose (which defeats the purpose!) and other stuff...so make sure you read the labels.
