Is this really something to aim for? It may be considered “normal”, yet it’s the single most important factor in the epidemic of degenerative disease in affluent nations. If you did completely cure candida and return to this diet, you’d soon be worrying about something else that would likely have an even greater impact on your health. A third of Americans have metabolic syndrome!
I think a cure should mean you’re able to treat yourself once in a while and not stick to such a limited set of foods, but the standard American diet is something that should be forgotten fast. The good thing about the candida diet is that it forces you to adjust your eating habits and lifestyle towards health on a long-term basis, so it’s easier to continue maintaining it, perhaps with the occasional latte and muffin thrown in. It’s gotta be better than slowly falling apart, having a mind like a sieve and looking like crap like the majority of the population now ends up doing.
