I don’t mean to be taken as defensive, but the banana was after 5-1/2 months. I haven’t cheated, technically, of my own free will from the diet I’m doing. I may be doing it “wrong” according to this site’s method, but there are 1,000’s of candida diets out there and all are different. I’ve also never heard of not having beans at all on a candida diet. My goal is to rid myself of this so please don’t take this as being defensive.
I have only eaten fresh meats, vegetables (mostly fresh, some canned), rice products, beans (which I’ve never heard anywhere else as being bad for candida), eggs, water, almonds.
My diet consists mainly of 3 eggs for breakfast. For lunch I’ll usually have a chicken salad (lettuce, onions, peppers, tomatoes, chicken), and for dinner homemade hummus and meat.
I can’t be too far off. The episode I’ve described was not a cheat, but an accident that I regret. The banana was a mistake as I figured that during month 4 I had NO symptoms. None. Zilch. I thought I could handle it after being symptom free for a whole month.
I have cut out all dairy, caffeine, sugars (in all forms: sucrose, dextrose, etc, plus artificials), alcohol, wheat, most grains (except rice grain).
I guess I’m a little pissed because I thought I’ve been doing this right and I’ve just wasted 6 ******** months.
I don’t honestly know WTF anymore, because almost every diet I’ve seen says ALL dairy should be cut out because it feeds candida, yet yogurt is allowed here. Plus so are non-aged cheeses.
If one were to combine all the programs together to get what they could eat, it would amount to:
