Ok I'm confused! Been reading about the Candida diet and starting my cleanse today. Most info I have read states no fruit yet one of the recipes for breakfast contains apples. Can I have apples or not??

Ah ok so I can have them in Step 2. Great, was hoping to have them as a snack during detox! Not much you can nibble on is there if you're hungry between meals?

Hello, Lily.

Personally, I leave all apples out of my diet. The only fruits I have are lemons, limes, and about once or twice a week, half a handful of blueberries. These things are all I can tolerate in the way of fruit.
Actually, the granny smith green apple shows up on a lot of Candida diets. All you can do with this information is to give it a try. However, I would not start with a whole apple, perhaps a quarter at the very most, and take it from there according to your reactions to that.

Just keep in mind that you’ll find almost as many different Candida diets online as there are people posting them. The bottom line is, every one of us is different from the other, and there should not be a set rule which states, “THIS is the diet to follow for Candida.” Be your own judge; don’t let anyone else do that for you.

Good luck to you, Max

Hi Max

Thanks for the advice! Yes I've noticed during my research of what I should or shouldn't eat during the initial detox phase that there is a lot of conflicting information out there. I have decided to leave apples alone while I'm detoxing and will introduce them later into the diet and see what happens. This is only my 2nd day but I've noticed a difference already!

There definitely ARE a million different anti candida diets. I was so frustrated at first because some contradict each other. I eventually just figured I'd err on the side of caution at least for the first month or so. I also am working with an herbalist so that helps with diet questions. For in between meals/snacks, some things I've had are; plain greek yogurt (sweetened with stevia/xylitol/truvia if needed, celery sticks with almond butter, nuts/seeds (pumpkin seeds/almonds/no peanuts!), tons of water, veggies with hummus, veggie soup with avocado.

Thanks! Any advice is welcome. Bought some whole almonds today but was still unsure whether I should have them. I know you can soak them in water in case of any mold but how long do you soak them for? Lots of gaps in info! Almond butter seems another controversial item. Some say yes it's fine others say no. I've been having natural yogurt (probiotic) but even that contains the natural sugar lactose. I like to sprinkle it with pumpkin and sunflower seeds. It can all be so confusing with regards to 'safe' foods

Dear Lily,

I had the same question regarding apples when I was following an anti-candida diet. to start with, I believe you should not eat very acidic or very sweet apples.
Regarding you last post, you can find some answers here: Natural Wave (check the diets section).

All the best.

Hello!

I have the meridian almond butter and have that with celery sticks all the time as a snack and so far I think I am ok with it...I hope so as otherwise I have no idea what I will snack on, i can't have dairy, I tried the sheep yoghurt to try and get some probiotics in but I just couldn't eat it :( I tried soaking the almonds but the next day I opened the cupboard, took the lid off and they had grown thick gross mould all over them - yuk so that has put me off a tad!

The first time I had candida I was told alot of things that I could eat but now there is so much more information available and I can't see how I have ever actually gotten rid of it when I was eating apples, pears, drinking gin and vodka the whole time! ridic!

In stage two should I be trying to get some pro biotics in my diet though? bit concerned my stomach is not getting good stuff back in...

Hi

That's the same almond butter I use. I spread it on rice cakes but it's very claggy in your mouth! I also tried soaking almonds but they've gone horrible so thrown them away. Tasted a few and they weren't nice at all. I've already started a probiotic supplement, just today and I've only done 1 week of detox. Had a G&T last night and I have a small sore red patch on my tongue again (could be the mouldy almonds though!) It's a pretty hard 'diet' to follow but I can see the benefits already. My skin is so much clearer and I've lost 7lbs in 7 days!

Hello!

What probiotic are you taking? Ive been recommended the neways one which looks good but didnt think I was meant to start on that until stage three?!?

I love the almond butter with celery - odd combo but somehow it works! I'm looking into buckwheat flakes and crackers at mo as they're a plant not grain! Bizarre, but I couldn't eat the rice crackers. I'm not really getting any massive die off or clear signs its exiting my system which is weird as I've been on candiclear for five days I've felt pretty rubbish but no real big die off yet like I had before?! I can't eat anymore garlic than I'm having don't know what's gonna kill it!!

Oh RE my finger - I went to walk in centres, Drs, allergy specialists, homeopaths, nutritionists, they've all given me lotions and potions but nothing has worked which is why I feel it's definitely like a symptom my stomach is not right I think it's linked to that area by meridian points etc bit like reflexology.

Maybe I'll crack on getting the good bacteria in then...oh and yes definitely noticed my skin just looks healthy and lost half a stone! So I'm a bag of bones with garlic breath lol what a catch ha ha!

I don't think you're meant to take antifungals still stage 2 either but the doc had prescribed me them and then I started the detox. I just thought well surely killing them with meds and starving them through detox is gotta be good! I think they don't suggest doing both at once in case the symptoms of die off are too severe but the first four days were all that affected me. But it could have been just the sugar and caffeine withdrawal anyway. Hard to tell as never been through this before!

I'm doing the detox, taking antifungals and probiotics so not following what is said on here to the letter but I don't see how taking probiotics at any time can be bad? I ordered Healthspans probiotics as I use a lot of their stuff anyway.

Wow really hope you sort your finger out! Sounds like a real pain!

"Note that you can actually take probiotics at any time during the Candida Diet."

Just been checking stage 3 and it says the above so looks like you can take your probiotics now. They can only do you good! Hope they help make you feel better :-)

Woo hoo thank you for that you've been really helpful which is appreciated :D

I'm going to check out the healthspan one, ive got some solgar advanced acidophilus so I may start that in the mean time.

The finger has dried up a bit but I'm going to a homeopath to get tested etc weds so will be good to get some support and advice and see where I'm at!

Hope all is going well with you!

:D

Man

Betty, it sounds like you're having a couple of die-off symptoms. Have you read the list of symptoms? The things you've named are definitely on the list. If you're not already experiencing die-off, you probably will eventually if you stick with the regimen.

Here's what you can do to help that. Go to a vitamin or health food store and purchase something called Molybdenum, it's not at all expensive. It's an essential trace element, and very helpful with clearing the body of toxins which are released by the dead Candida cells (these toxins cause the die-off symptoms). It was a life saver for me when I experienced debilitating, horrible die-off symptoms from too much rutabaga.

Good luck to you.

Hi Lily, its best to soak almonds overnight for use the next day, drain them then rinse in fresh water. If you want to keep them for longer, store in a bit of water in the fridge. I also do the same with Brazil nuts and pecans.

That's precisely what I do and it works fine! Peel them before consuming, as the peel is not digestible.

Regarding cleansing dead candida and their toxins, I found Activated Charcoal a very effective option.

YES! Hummus with veggies are a definite snack item! Delicious and nutritious! It is soooo easy to make homemade hummus too (although most store bought are okay too, ingredient wise).

All you do is take a quart jar of chick peas, a heaping tablespoon of tahini, add some salt for flavor, and then add whatever floats your boat. I'll usually make mine spicy, like with chili arbol powder and garlic, and throw in some roasted red peppers. Or you can do artichoke, just about anything. Blend it in a food processor, while adding slowly extra virgin olive oil until you get the consistency you like.
